Hello BC Family

it's a trap
My partner Tom, has been sewing face masks all day today!
Yoga was a great workout!
@Justin - country line dancing online
not my jam
Yay Tom Gelder!!!
Thank you so much for holding this informational meeting. While the information and projected death toll is not uplifting, it is helpful to have straightforward information.
They suggest bandanas even will work. Love that Tom is making his own!
Thank you Tom!
Anything will work, most being significantly better than nothing.
bandanas will not work. the hospitals have suggested nothing that is woven fabric so cotton wont work.
@kelly I think the idea is something is better than nothing
Woohoo for our Nursing team! Great job!
met two current students when I was donating blood this weekend! good attitudes
that is true. we have been making masks for the hospitals and they suggest coffee filters in the masks as they can be disposable
Thank you, Carla! Such an amazing leader
yes I have heard that and the filters you use in your a/c intake

Go students! Being involved while in college is very important. Stay connected! Build your network of support!
I am so stressed trying to home school and work. My child needs help, I have work projects, always having problems with one device or another. ARGH!
@Deb Love it! Thank you:)
yup it's been very stressful when your children are home. lots of professors dont understand that.
Emma, you can use google calendar to manage your time
We miss you!!!!
Thank you for your honesty, Emma. Even as an employee I have struggled with time management and finding my routine too. No one is perfect! :-)
It is stressful having a husband who just recently retired HOME!
@Kim totally agree with you too! One day at a time...
@Emma - awesome job. Happy to hear you are struggling together and not alone! I love the idea of keeping your regular class times for work time for those classes that are not meeting synchronously. Thank you for sharing with us.

We are all in this together! Yes Emma!! True words. We are doing this together because we care about one another!
It's definitely an adjustment for all of us; stay strong!
Awesome job Emma and I am so glad we have a leader like you!
@Emma McNellis, I really appreciate your honesty! It is a really uncertain time and your perspective helps me realize that we really are doing this together as a community! Awesome words of advice!

Great job, Emma! It is not easy, and I miss in-person interaction with my team too!
Thank you everyone!!!
