How we spend our time in the time of social distancing
Many of us are using this period to grow and prosper, learn new languages and develop some skills. Still, it's okay to just rest and read or watch movies. The modern age is forcing us to live fast, and now it has put us on a much needed break. It's important to take care of our health, mental and physical.
Our fellows and alumni are of various professions and interests. We will talk to them about how they spend their free time, but also how they study online and work from home.
Scholarship recipients Ivana and Vukasin prepared their recommendations as the first part of our series. Remember, #Stayathome !
Ivana Simeunovic, Faculty of Biology
I hope you are all well, and that you are using this time to rest and enjoy your hobbies, work and study.
My recommendations are three books that I have been enjoying these days:
1) Audition - Ryu Murakami ( 2) Island - Mesa Selimovic 3) Talk To Yourself - Andres Neuman
I would also recommend the online bookshop "Bookstore", where you can find discounts when buying online. And I warmly recommend online performances now available on the websites of most of national theaters. If you can't watch the great "Hadersfild" show here, I recommend the movie of the same name. Nebojsa Glogovac was brilliant in this role.
All the best, Ivana Simeunović
Vukasin Bozic, Faculty of Electrical Engineering
I would like to take this opportunity to greet all of the Foundation's friends and associates. I hope all of you are well, and that I can brighten up these days in isolation with my recommendations.
I enjoy theater, and several theaters in Serbia have provided online performances while we can't attend the shows live:
National Theater in Belgrade
Serbian National Theater
A large number of museums and national parks also provided an online tour. Modern times and technology allow us to enjoy the magic of nature and art from our own couch. These are the links I'm using:
Certainly one of the most famous learning platforms, Coursera, has opened a large number of its free learning courses, so if one has not used this platform so far, they can create an account and access a large number of free courses: https://www.coursera.org/ I also recommend the following articles for inspiration:
