Holed Up at Home - Updates from Badgers Around the Country

Hi Badgers! My name is Camryn and I am the Journalism Intern here at UW Hillel. I am spearheading a blog to showcase what students in our community are doing during this quarantine - a place to share feelings or even some fun activities that others could do!


To start off this blog I am going to share a little bit about my time so far in quarantine. It has definitely been a rollercoaster to say the least. Some days are really good (especially when the weather is nice!) while others are difficult trying to balance classes and being stuck inside. I have been watching lots of new shows and if you have any series suggestions comment below! So far my favorite Netflix shows that I suggest are The Circle, a social media competition, and Cheer a documentary about a cheerleading team. This may be a hot take, but I also watched Tiger King and was not into it. I’m curious about your thoughts on this docu-series! Alongside binging all of Netflix, I’ve been cooking many new recipes at home thanks to the cook “book,” or rather document, Hillel has created. A few of our interns and staff compiled some K4P recipes such as flourless almond cake and charoset that you should try out before Passover passes over us! On another note, I think the most positive thing I have done during this time is creating a schedule so I feel like I am being productive throughout the day. I typically wake up at the same time each day, workout at the same time, then have lunch, do some work and most importantly for me, I have worked on my classes at the same time it is scheduled for. This has allowed me to feel like I am doing something with my day, rather than leaving everything until the last minute. 

Have you been doing the same? Comment below! I cannot wait to hear of what everyone is doing and any suggestions. Lastly, if you or someone you know would like to contribute to this blog email me at oliffcamryn@gmail.com
