“I have some free time; what should I do?”

I got you covered…

Below are a few of the events occurring next week!

Red Line
  • Lucky Bamboo
    • Noon-2 p.m. Tuesday (Sept. 27)
    • Red Raider Plaza
    • Free with Texas Tech Student ID

Need some extra luck? 

Stop by Red Raider Plaza and create your very own Lucky Bamboo pot!

According to Feng Shui, the ancient Chinese art of arranging buildings, objects and space in an environment to achieve harmony and balance, bamboo plants are considered lucky. 

The hollow structure of the plant is believed to help in the movements of "Chi" energy. Chi energy can be described as the purest energy that arises out of consciousness, awareness and stillness. It is ultimately said to be your life force.

Personally, I love bamboo due to its pleasing aesthetic! (And, of course, because it's also submerged in water, making it easy to care for.)

By circulating positive energy, bamboo is supposed to generate more abundance and prosperity within your life.  

When I had my bamboo plant (which is now dead), I never intentionally attempted to create a positive atmosphere for my energy. Still, I do remember feeling a sense of serenity when I was around it. 

If this was because of Feng Shui or the fact that I've never kept a plant alive as long as I did Hermie (RIP), I'll never know.

The film “Thor: Love and Thunder” is the sequel to the movie “Thor: Ragnarok” that came out in 2017.  

The movie follows the Thor as he attempts to find inner peace but must return to the action to stop Gorr the God Butcher from eliminating all the gods. 

Starring Chris Hemsworth, alongside Christian Bale and Natalie Portman, the title managed to pass the $700 million mark at the global box office back in August despite its rating of only 64 % on rotten tomatoes.

If you ask me, I thought it was a good addition to the Marvel Universe, but that's just my opinion.
