Special Edition: What day is it?

We are interrupting our regularly scheduled programming to help you get through this extra Wednesday o'classes. Remember when it seemed like a good idea to have only Monday/Thursday classes? Yeah, so do we.

Given that the day is jam-packed (and you need to turn around and fit in reading for Thursday) we wanted to keep you up to the minute on what is going on during this most special Wednesday. We hope you allied your best selves during the bar crawl last night and continue to attend additional programming throughout the week.

Hope springs eternal

Try your best to keep your clothes on, guys. Though it will be windy, today is going to see us north of 50 degrees with a whopping high of 55°F (13°C). Don't mind us, we will be the ecstatic ones skipping to class. 

The Busiest Day of the Week

  • Who run the world? If you're grabbing this extra day of class by the horns, join the Run|Bike|Swim Club for an early morning run (7:30 a.m.; Church & Sherman).
  • The Dish on DACA. Ally Week continues with programming from HMA to discuss a topic you may have heard frequently mentioned, but do not intimately understand. Join immigration law expert and Northwestern Pritzker Law School professor, Erin F. Delaney, as she discusses the history of DACA (or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and the effect of changing legislation on this topic for undocumented individuals. Lunch will be provided (12:15 p.m.; 1120)!
  • Make an impact. For those of you interested in Social Impact, the Net Impact Club has an event for you. Join Chicago Kellogg alumni and fellow students for an Alumni Happy Hour tonight downtown. Get your tickets here (6:30 p.m.; Hub 51). 

Start your engines

If you are passionate about start-ups or still searching for that dream job or internship, don't forget to check out today's Start-Up Career Fair. The event starts at lunch but goes until 4pm in the Norris Center. Over 20 companies are currently registered and the list can be found in CMS. Happy hunting! 

What we're listening to, reading, & watching

This extra day of class to make up for our 'holiday' got us thinking. How do random days like Barbershop Quartet Day or National Eight-Track Tape Day (both today!) become holidays? Luckily, Planet Money answered that question for us. Listen here.

Is anyone else obsessed with true crime? No, just us? Well if you're interested in reading things that make people want to avoid you on the L train, we have some suggestions. Writer Michelle McNamara's long-awaited book I'll Be Gone in the Dark, which was finished posthumously with help from her husband, comedian Patton Oswalt, chronicles her obsession with catching the Golden State Killer. 

The book's intro was written by author Gillian Flynn of Gone Girl fame and we are eager to sink into this one as soon as this make-up class is done. If you'd rather 'wait for the movie' it was just announced that HBO is creating a docuseries of the book, release date TBD.

If you prefer to listen to your true crime and have been mourning the end of Season One of Serial for years, may we suggest Last Podcast on the Left or a more 'lighthearted' approach with My Favorite Murder (#ssdgm which stands for "Stay Sexy and Don't Get Murdered"). 

If you're looking to Netflix and chill or just stay inside until spring makes her grand entrance, here are a few recommendations: we are eagerly awaiting the return of New Girl (the final season premiered last night), friends keep telling us that we have to finally watch Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and you should make time to watch (or re-watch) one of the most criminally underrated recent comedies Documentary Now, with national treasures Bill Hader and Fred Armisen.
