It’s been so much fun viewing your #NEMABetterTogether submissions featuring your furry friends, ways you stay connected with your loved ones, tips on how to stay productive, cooking, book recommendations, and other creative ways you are making this home time work for you. We’ve rounded up a few winning submissions that include tips for being social and connected!

Read your way out of quarantine. Whether you start your stack of paperback books or download your digital copy, read a book! Resident @itskiraxo recommends falling in love with fictional characters to pass the time. Resident @shawnalee94 has shared one of her favorite current reads, in case you need a literary recommendation: Break Your Glass Slippers by Amanda Lovelace.

Hone a hobby. Whether it’s a new hobby or favorite past time, utilize your time by creating something. We are quite impressed with our resident contest winner @guinnevere and her inspiring “quarantine quilting” skills! Check them out for yourself.

Find time for furry friends. Spending time with animals can increase feelings of social support and boost your mood. Whip up some delicious bites and share with your canine friends! Furry resident Loki tried everything to snag a bite of chorizo-y Huevos Quaran-cheros.

Get creative and have fun. Whether it’s a Tik Tok night or honing a new crafty outlet, remember to breathe and laugh. Chicago resident @kathleen_cohen shared a hilarious original hit with us, COVID-19 Corona Quarantine (Original Song) By: The QuaranTEAM. Thank you for the laughs!

Craft your culinary skills. Baking is a bonus to fill your apartment with comforting scents and the ability to share something wonderful with a neighbor. Resident @__kelsy.cheng makes our mouth water with a British Summer Pudding capture!

Enjoy the view. Centrally located in San Francisco’s dynamic Mid-Market, NEMA apartments present an amazing array of views overlooking the city’s urban landscape from Twin Peaks and the dome of City Hall to the skyline of Financial District and the stunning expanse of the San Francisco Bay. San Francisco’s furry feline Calla is reminding us to enjoy the fresh air and take in the views from your balcony.

NEMA residents may be separated but we are still together. This is a nation-wide community challenge and we will be sharing content by NEMA residents in Chicago, San Francisco, and Boston. Share all the many ways you are making the best of your time spent at home on Instagram and tag #NEMABetterTogether to be featured in our NEMA newsletter and on social media. Let’s keep them rolling in San Francisco!
