Life During Covid19

The corona virus has financially impacted my family. Throughout the course of Covid19, I’ve spent a very large amount of money in continuing hopes of feeding my family at home and making sure that they’re clothes are clean. Due to stock markets failing and stores running out of certain products, it is difficult to get certain things such as cleaning products, toilet paper, paper towel, etc. Many people are also making sure that they’re supporting their loved ones, so they’re buying so much things leaving almost none for the next person. It’s also been a really tough time for me due to the fact that I go to work earlier than I usually do. Before the pandemic occurred, I would normally go to work at 3:00 in the afternoon, but now I have to go to work at around 6:00 in the morning. Because of this, it’s typically challenging to prepare a meal for my family, before I leave. My family is at the top of my priority list, even though these times are hard, I need to ensure that I’m doing whatever I can.
