Curious Cat: Your Dream Halftime Performance

By Anna Jankowski & Ethan Shea

"Curious Cat Banner"

Happy Thursday, Wildcats! The Curious Cat is back for another week of hard-hitting questions and impromptu interviews. This week’s installment is all about the weekend’s big game. The question is: “Who is your dream halftime performer?” We asked a handful of Falvey patrons to answer this question, and with the Grammy Awards fresh in everyone’s minds, we got some great responses!

Peek at the Week: February 6


In Infinite Jest, David Foster Wallace said, “You will become way less concerned with what other people think of you when you realize how seldom they do.”

We, as social creatures, have a tendency to worry about what other people think of us, whether you want to be perceived as nice, cool, funny, or smart. When we do something that doesn’t meet our own standards, whatever they may be, we can worry what people are thinking of us.

But the overthinking isn’t worth it. The embarrassing moments that you replay in your mind at night barely cross other people’s minds, and, if for some reason they do, I promise you they are judging you far kinder than your own internal monologue. Caring about others is a good trait to have but learning to place less emphasis on what others think of you is a great lesson.

Be sure to check out the awesome events happening on campus this week for Black History Month, and stay tuned for more information on Falvey’s postponed Black History Month event, “The End of White Christian America: Faith Apart from Anti-Blackness.”  


Today, Feb. 6, is National Frozen Yogurt Day. If you don’t feel like letting the cold weather hold you back, celebrate with some fro-yo. Although I may be a bit biased, as my best friend worked there for a while, Kiwi Yogurt is a great place to try. Their Funfetti Cupcake flavor (with some chocolate syrup and Oreo pieces) is amazing.

For anyone in the mood for a nice warm drink to stave off the cold (or fans of caffeine in any form), National Latte Day is this Saturday, Feb. 11. Whether your favorite latte is an (iced or hot) chai, matcha, pumpkin spice, or vanilla, grab yourself a latte to celebrate. And, as always, if you’re in Falvey, swing by Holy Grounds for a convenient option.

This Saturday is also Global Movie Day. You can celebrate this holiday by watching a movie, any movie. As someone perhaps a little too obsessed with movies, this holiday is just another perfect excuse to go to the movie theater. In lieu of seeing Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, which doesn’t hit theaters until Feb. 17, I might go to see Knock at the Cabin or (if my aforementioned best friend chooses) BTS: Yet to Come in Cinemas.

As I’m sure many of you know, this Sunday, Feb. 12, is Super Bowl Sunday, and this year, Philly will compete against the Kansas City Chiefs. (Go, Birds!) Need the perfect game day snack? Sunday is also Super Chicken Wing Day. So, pick up your go-to wings and enjoy the game (or the commercials).

Curious Cat: Superbowl Snacks

Hey ‘Cats, Superbowl LIV is this Sunday. Whether you are in it for the game, the commercials, or the halftime show, this unofficial holiday will certainly feature its famous chips, dips, and all the other foods that discourage the use of utensils. We asked students and staff what their favorite Superbowl snack is. Here is what they said!


—Isabella Carro ’20 (Sociology)


—Hillary O’Neill ’23 (Undecided)

“Queso Dip”

—Kallie Stahl ’17 (Communication)

This week’s Curious Cat is brought to you by Allie Reczek and Annabelle Humiston, two of our wonderful undergraduate student workers in the Falvey Memorial Library Communication & Marketing Department. Keep an eye out for them every Wednesday, asking students their opinions on a range of subjects and topics.
