Peek at the Week: April 3


In Pocahontas, Grandmother Willow said, “Sometimes the right path is not the easiest one.”

Happy Monday, Wildcats! The second half of the semester is never easy, with our time being filled up exams, papers, and projects. It inarguably is easier to do the bare minimum to get through the rest of the semester, but often, the easiest path is not the best path.

My advice: Take the right path. You might be tired and burnt out, and that’s understandable (some might even say inevitable). Use the upcoming break to relax and recharge. Then, as you return, try your best to finish out the semester strong, whether it’s with academics, athletics, work, or something else that gives your life meaning and you aspire to succeed in. Not everyone’s path looks the same, but giving it your best shot applies to every path.

Happy Easter Break! Check back next week for more awesome Falvey Library events and exhibits!


As you likely know, Easter is coming up this Sunday, Apr. 9, (even if you don’t celebrate Easter, a break is a break), but here are some other holidays you could be celebrating this week:

Today, Apr. 3, is National Film Score Day, a day dedicated to listening to and appreciating your favorite movie scores and their composers. Despite the accolades of some of the household names of film scores, including John Williams and Hans Zimmer, scores sometimes don’t quite get the attention they deserve. A good score can completely change the tone of a film. My personal favorite film scores as of late are the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever score and (although it’s technically not a film) the entire Avatar: The Last Airbender score.

Feeling like a good Samaritan? Today is also National Inspiring Joy Day. Take this as an opportunity to do something to make someone happy, whether it’s someone close to you or a complete stranger. And, of course, don’t forget about bringing some joy into your own day.

Wednesday, Apr. 5, is Peeps Day. Peeps, for anyone who hasn’t had the pleasure of trying this somewhat divisive treat, are colorful sugar-covered marshmallows vaguely made to look like chicks. They are probably one of the most artificial-feeling candies on the market, but they are an absolute Easter staple. To celebrate, snack on some Peeps, and check out our Curious Cat blog installment where we asked some brave Falvey patrons to guess this mystery Peep flavor.

In addition to being the first day of Easter break, Thursday, Apr. 6, is National Burrito Day. Whether your go-to burrito is from a local, authentic spot or an Americanized chain, like Chipotle or Taco Bell, enjoy a burrito and enjoy your break.
