What’s most important to you right now? 

Keeping myself busy so that I stay sane. I bake a lot. Zoom has become my world. Crafting. I took up coloring. I actually hate coloring, but coloring doesn’t give you calories. Baking does.

What was most important to you before you had to social distance? 

I always valued my friends and family, but I definitely took for granted how little I saw them. Leaving my apartment [was important] and going to the gym. 

What’s the first thing you’ll do when this is over? 

I need to go some place with nature. I’m so jealous of everyone that has a yard. Even if it’s a small tiny yard. 

What are you doing to pass the time? 

A lot of baking–I’ve done a lot of things on my baking bucket list. I’ve made some pretty fun things. Coloring. I’m becoming such a pro at Zoom. Not so much cleaning my room. 

What makes you happy right now?

I have a roommate that only moved in here a month before this all started. She was barely ever here, but now she’s here all the time, so we watch movies all the time. It’s a fun little thing. She’s the only human I have contact with right now. 

What would you tell yourself two months ago with the knowledge you have today? 

Find a job sooner.

I’ve definitely learned the people that are more my actual friends versus strong acquaintances. I can spend more time on that.
