These past two weeks of strenuous schoolwork is showing me that productivity can sometimes mask itself as stress. Deadlines fall out of reach, things pile up, but the most important thing is to keep chugging through and all those piles of assignments will eventually get out of the way. Between the papers and projects, I’ve been gearing up for Springfest, Earth Week, and the Lougheed-Kofoed arts festival. I’m pumped to see Streetlight Manifesto on Saturday night and then stick around for the WAIH’s rave afterwards. Believe it or not, this year’s spring fest will be held outside the union facing Barrington Drive. The whole street will be closed off for events all weekend. It’s going to be awesome! Next week, our very own campus sustainability office will be hosting earth week in collaboration with the student activist organization Middle Ground club. I’m interning for the sustainability office right now as their social media representative and will be covering a few events for them. An event I’m really looking forward to covering is a talk from author of The Big Thirst, Charles Fishman. It’s a privilege to get him on campus and in lieu of a great non-fiction author we are also going to have radio host Grant Barrett from NPR news. He will be delivering a talk on grammar, which is the subject of his talk show, and answering questions from the audience. I’ve been offered to have lunch with him, too! There are so many other events taking place next week that it’s almost overwhelming to list. Luckily, it’s all in good fun and a nice break from the books. Can’t wait for the festivities to commence!
