To continue with our humans of Barrington and their quarantine stories, we have Ms. Duffy, a BHS teacher. Read on to see the many ways books helped her – in relationships, in life, and, of course, in quarantine. “Over quarantine I wanted to make sure I didn’t lose sight of my mental health, so I turned to books which is something that I always loved to do, but I don’t always have the time. To help maintain those habits joining book clubs holds you accountable, and I’m right now in four book clubs, and it’s all on Zoom so it’s not a lot, but I’m in one with students, one with my friends, one with faculty, and one with former colleagues, and we just bring tea and talk about it. We focused on diverse books with diverse authors, and that was really cool to be able to introduce those books to my friends and also teachers in the district. Not everybody is a physical book reader so we also had options for audiobooks so we could get more people involved. I think that reading is really important for empathy and perspective, and readers tend to have those skills more often than other people who aren’t readers. Another way besides going to a book club to hold yourself accountable is using the app Goodreads. My friends and I are really competitive, so especially if you’re a competitive person, tracking how fast you’re reading could be a fun way to keep your interest. I also read audiobooks, and especially since we’re stuck inside I go on long walks by myself or with my dog and I’ll listen to an audiobook, and that helps keep me reading. I read 33 books from March to the end of the school year, and I haven’t done that since I was a little kid. I think that reading opens up your eyes to other parts of the world and allows you to walk in others’ shoes. As a little kid I read ‘Magic Treehouse’ books, and as someone who loves history I liked that a lot. Also as a young girl there weren’t a lot of tv shows or dolls that pertained to strong female protagonists, so for me turning to books there was a whole world of people who felt the same way I did about how everyone can do anything they put their mind to.”Kathleen Duffy (Ms. Duffy), teacher.

Another week, another human of Barrington! Today, senior Kyle Stewart is featured along with his list of quarantine activities and his love of fishing. Keep reading to hear more about the rest of Stewart’s quarantine experience.“During the pandemic I have been playing video games, 3D printing, watching shows and movies, biking, running, playing volleyball and along with that my dog. My biggest hobby is fishing, which I do basically everyday during the pandemic. My favorite part about it is being able to enjoy nature, peace and the quiet with friends – in which despite the virus I was to fish with them while keeping distance.  We would fish at least two hours per day. My favorite fish I have caught was the Largemouth bass. The fish is mildly big with dark green scales on its body. It’s fins are lighter greenish. It is my favorite because of its thick body.” Kyle Stewart, senior.

Our human of Barrington today – sophomore Jess Hurtado – has a journey of a story to tell. Read on to see how events in the past summer urged Hurtado to take action, working around the confines of COVID-19.“I was motivated over the summer to start the Black Lives Matter book club because of all the protests happening due to the death of George Floyd. As a high-schooler, I wanted to join in on the movement, but I didn’t know what exactly "white privilege" was. So, I decided that the best way to learn was to read books on the topic. And then, assuming others also wanted knowledge about the Black Lives Matter movement as well, I started the BLM book club. The pandemic definitely impacted the Black Lives Matter book club. We had to do all of our meetings over Zoom instead of in-person. Plus, it was hard to recruit people to join considering school wasn’t in session. If COVID-19 wasn’t an issue, I would have loved to go to peaceful protests with the club, but I’m glad we were able to work around the pandemic and still meet. The club I started lasted for about five weeks before something came up that prevented me from running it. We read around three or four very different books that focused on white privilege and African-American history in the United States. On average, it took about two weeks for each book. We met for Zoom calls twice throughout the novels.”Jess Hurtado, sophomore.

The RoundUp is back with the Humans of Barrington and all of their lovely quarantine stories. Read more about sophomore Simrin Raju and her creative quarantine fun! “During the pandemic I have been spending my time a lot differently than I was before. For the past eight months, I have been trying to make the best of having to stay at home which was difficult at times. One of the things that helped make these dark times feel brighter was having so many experiences with my family that we never really had the chance to do before because of my parents at work and my siblings busy with college, schoolwork, and friends. I would love waking up and walking downstairs to make plans for the day with my brothers. We had to be creative to find things to do because most things were closed because of the pandemic. My brothers and I spent a week fixing an old paddle boat that we’ve had for years but have never taken the time to fix and we ended up using it for the entire summer. We would have never gotten around to fixing it and cleaning it if it wasn’t for all the free time we had.” Simrin Raju, sophomore.

Winter break is almost here; just a few more days! In the mean time, enjoy this human of Barrington – junior Anraoi Heneghan – talking about his quarantine experiences.“I’ve been playing the piano a lot more. I think that is because I’m just sitting around at home. I have been exercising frequently too. It calms me down from the stress I’ve been under at school. If you ask that question [does eLearning stress you out more than normal school?] to any kid, I’d bet you they would have the same exact response.
