Virtual Fireside Chat: Mindful Doodling

Wednesday, September 30 at 6:00 – 7:00 PM, Hosted by Sanskriti

Calling all doodlers, scribblers and scrabblers! Take a break with the Stories from a Distance community as we come together to make art and decompress. During this 1-hour Zoom call, we will be drawing as a way to breathe, ground ourselves and take a mindfulness moment. We hope this session not only gives you a much-needed break from online classes and scrolling through social media, but also leads to some art you would be proud to hang on your fridge. No doodling experience needed!

FreestyleFriday: Bonding Over Buzzfeed

Friday, October 2 at 6:00 – 7:00 PM, Hosted by Mona

Which type of bagel are you? Join the Stories from a Distance team as we take and bond over the silliest Buzzfeed quizzes. During this 1 hour Zoom call, you will likely learn which Mean Girls character you are and what your choice of cake says about your personality. This student-led session is the perfect opportunity to have fun and take a break from school or work with other U of T community members. All bagel types are welcome!
