Speaking

I don’t like work at home, the work hour extended a lot, I am always on stand-by. Yesterday I worked until 10 pm, ebecause my boss always have a lot of meetings on wechat, and I need to record. We have foreigners and chinese at the meeting. They speak English and Chinese, I need to translate what they say and summarize the content, and write the notes. I need to spend much time on this thing.

I heard from my colleague, they come from HeNan and Zhejiang, the goverment doesn’t allow other people to come in. Later if they want to go to the street, they must have a government permit pass.

At home, it’s more safe than outside. I only have two meals one day. I eat less. My parents have gone to the supermarket for twice, so we have enough food to eat.

My boss made a fun to me, i was always sleep. We started work on Feb 10, so these days I can’t sleep later. I start to work 9am. At 10 am, I’m on bed but I’m wake up.
