What Is Simon Listiak Doing During Quarantine?

2 min read

We’re all in a bit of a stressful situation right now, and it’s important to keep in touch with our friends and know what they’re up to. So this week I interviewed freshman Simon Listiak to see how she’s been dealing with quarantine.

How do you feel about quarantine?

It’s boring. I think about all of the places that I could be, and just… reminisce. But at the same time, I don’t think I would go anywhere if I could, I just want to have the option. It makes me appreciate the home that I have, but it’s just really boring because I’m seeing the same stuff every day.

What is the first thing you do in the morning? Last thing you do before bed?

First thing I do is probably fall back asleep. I just go out to the living room and pet my dog. Last thing I do… um… hygiene stuff…. take a shower and stuff. The last thing I do before I fall asleep is probably sing until I conk out.

What time have you been going to sleep?


What has been your go-to quarantine activity?

Drawing. Just… yeah. Either that or Animal Crossing

Favorite snack recently?

Ooh, um… my dad keeps making cookies and they’re extremely addictive. Whenever he goes to the store he gets golden Oreos. My mom found double stuff golden Oreos, so if I am allowed, I’ll eat them.

How have you kept yourself sane?

I haven’t. I feel like I’m losing my mind. Although I’ve been listening to a lot of music, it’s calming, but when I turn it off I feel like I’m insane again.

Have you been cooking anything?

No… I feel like I should. I was supposed to make dinner the other night, but I forgot. But if making frozen burritos counts… then totally.

Remember to text your friends and peers these questions to see how and what they are doing. Everyone could use a friendly check-in right now. 🙂
