Happy February!

Happy Groundhog Day! I never understood this “holiday”, or where it came from. But nonetheless happy groundhog day.

On a more meaningful note Happy Beginning of V Season! V season is the season of awareness and prevention of violence against women, which is spread through V day events, like The Vagina Monologues, Until The Violence Stops, different teach-ins, other performances, and a V-men workshop specifically for men. As always a group of women from the Marquette community will be performing The Vagina Monologues to raise awareness and charitable donations (charitable organization to be determined).

February also is Oscar season. The Oscar nominees were announced early this morning. Unfortunately, the 300 million dollar remake of Dances With Wolves was nominated for Best Picture but fortunately so was Precious, The Hurt Locker and A Serious Man.
