What’s been keeping you busy during quarantine: I have been working my job at a nursing home in town like crazy. We had a bunch of cases there during quarantine and needed all the help we could get, yet people kept quitting over fear of COVID. It’s a very scary time. 

Learned something new: I am normally a very social person and being in quarantine was hard on me, but I learned how to be alone a lot more.

Your quarantine show, movie, and/or book: I have re-watched New Girl three times during quarantine. Best. Show. Ever.

The thing you were looking forward to the most about WC: I am really excited to start meeting new people and getting involved in all the on-campus opportunities. 

Advice for students in quarantine: It is okay to feel sad. We all are going through stuff right now and you can give yourself that room to cry but it will get better at some point. It has to.
