Speaking

Recent one week, more colleagues come back. I think in the next two weeks, more colleagues will come back. Some colleagues who have children are allowed to stay at home to work. This project I am working on is urgent so we have to go back to office for meetings. Sometimes, we have online interview to discuss the report, discuss the client meeting etc. So far we go to office every day because my boss is in office every day. But, it’s interesting because my colleagues didn’t get married. We kind of don’t very care. We don’t have so much other things. We don’t need to take care of children etc.

We have scheduled the interim report in next two weeks so we have a lot of work need to finish by then. The previous two weeks, our boss didn’t give a lot of thought to this project and in the next two weeks, we will work hard in this project. I’m just involved in the projects. My boss manages all the projects.

In February, I was worried about the coronavirus. I worry about my families as well. I worry that I carry the virus because I take the train. I quarantined myself for 2 weeks then I started to work. When I came back to SH, I had concern to take out so I had to make food by myself. But, I can’t buy food online, everything sell out, especially vegetables. I was really worried that the virus will really change our lives. But, 1 weeks or 2 weeks later, everything seem go back to normal. Now, I worry about my work more than the situation.

Revised: 

Recently, more colleagues have come back. I think more colleagues will come back in the next two weeks. Some colleagues that have children are allowed to stay at home to work. This project I am working on is urgent so we have to go back to the office for meetings. Sometimes, we have online interviews to discuss the reports, discuss the client meetings etc. So far we go to the office every day because my boss is there every day. But, it’s interesting because my colleagues aren’t married. We don’t have to care about other things. We don’t need to take care of children, parents etc. 

We have scheduled to complete the interim report in the next two weeks so we have a lot of work that we need to finish by then. Two weeks ago, our boss didn’t prioritise this project/wasn’t so concerned of this project, but in the next two weeks, we have to work hard in this project. I’m just involved in the projects. My boss manages all of the projects.

In February, I was worried about the coronavirus. I was worried about my family as well. I was also worried that I would be infected by the virus because I took the train. I quarantined myself for 2 weeks then I started to work. When I came back to SH, I was concerned about the safety of takeouts so I had to make food/cook by myself. But, I can’t buy food online, everything was sold out, especially vegetables. I was really worried that the virus will really change our lives. But, 1 to 2 weeks later, everything seemed to have returned to normal. Now, I worry about my work more than the situation.
