Speaking

I moved. I was living in Jingan but I living in Baoshan. When I was in Jingan, the distance is short, but now is so long. But, move houses is so tired. I package my own things, I have so many things. When I move to the other house and I clean up, It was so tired. I lived in Jingan for about 3 years and I think moving house is so tired. I regret it. So I think maybe I should buy a car, so I can drive. If there is no traffic it takes only 30 minutes. If there is traffic it takes maybe 1 hour 30 minutes.

The other part is Chinese people who come to SH is less than before the virus. I think many companies close and many people lose their jobs. My friend she is back to home because her family don’t like she come to SH.

Revised: 

I moved houses recently. I was living in Jingan but now, I am living in Baoshan. When I was living in Jingan, the distance is short, but now, it takes so long for me to go to work. Moving houses is so tired. I packed everything by myself. I have so many things. When I moved to my new house and after cleaning up, I felt so tired/I was exhausted. I lived in Jingan for about 3 years and I think moving is so tiring. I regret it. So I think maybe I should buy a car, so I can drive. If there is no traffic it takes only 30 minutes. If there is traffic it takes around 1 hour 30 minutes.

The other reason is that Chinese people that come to SH is less than before the virus. I think many companies closed down/went backrupt and many people lost their jobs. My friend went back home because her family didn’t want her to come to SH.
