1.What were you doing for work before the pandemic?

I was working for Foodora which has now left the city. I was also working for Uber. I’m organizing and writing full time these days. 

2.What do you miss spending money on these days?

Nothing really, maybe sitting in a bar together with friends. Seeing plays I guess?  

3.How do you think your spending will change after the pandemic?

I’ll be back at work so I’ll be eating out more as I get while I’m working. I’ll spend money on seeing plays and bands 

4.What are your tips on how to cut costs?

Go veggie, figure out what things you can make yourself. 

5.Do you feel that there is uncertainty about how your work will look after the pandemic ends? If so, what are you doing to cope with this uncertainty?

Not really, the only uncertainty I worry about is whether we will forget what we’ve learned during the pandemic
