Peek at the Week: March 25


In The Creative Act: A Way of Being, Rick Rubin wrote, “The imagination has no limits. The physical world does. The work exists in both.”

Happy Monday, Wildcats! Easter break is right around the corner, making it the perfect time to take some time for yourself and refresh your mind. We’re at that point in the semester when burnout is setting in, with workloads increasing and papers and exams starting to pile up.

To put forth your best work and to end the semester feeling proud of yourself, take some time to prioritize self-care and doing things that make you happy over break. Then, come back refreshed with an imagination ready to take on the rest of the semester and make your wildest ideas a reality.

For any breakfast food fans, Monday, Mar. 25, is International Waffle Day. Waffles are an easily customizable breakfast food option with a host of different toppings and additions to chose from—strawberries and a little whipped cream is my personal favorite. If you’re in the mood for a sweet treat, pull out your waffle maker or head to a local diner and enjoy some waffles.

Tuesday, Mar. 26 is Solitude Day. School might still be in session, but it’s still a good time to fit some me-time into your schedule. Whether it’s reading a good book, taking a therapeutic walk, or cooking your favorite meal, you can celebrate the day by making some time for yourself.

As the break might have clued you in, Easter is this Sunday, Mar. 31. It might be a Catholic holiday, but I think it’s also just a great excuse to spend some time with your family and to eat some of your favorite candy. Personally, my favorite candy to enjoy on Easter are Robin Eggs, which are basically Whoppers covered in a pastel-colored candy coating. Enjoy your break!

If you’re in the mood for a tasty breakfast treat, this Thursday, Aug. 24, is National Waffle Day. Personally, I liked my waffles with (preferably real) maple syrup or strawberries with whipped cream, but there are countless ways to enjoy this breakfast classic. Or  just watch a waffle-centric episode of Parks and Recreation, like “Save JJs” or “Eagleton”.

Friday, Aug. 25 is National Secondhand Wardrobe Day. If you’re a fan of secondhand shopping, whether its for the prices, the sustainability, or the style, this is the perfect opportunity to wear your favorite thrifted outfit. Need some retail therapy? Swing by a local thrift store for some new clothes.

Feeling lucky? Sunday, Aug. 27 is International Lottery Day. If you want to test the odds, buy a lottery ticket today.
