I rarely meet people . It's difficult to get job through days so I still stay at home until now.

I usually meet new people. When I go to supermarket, go to new class or go on street.

I used to meet with new people last 2 years ago because I was a researcher and conducted to survey with many new people. At the moment, I'm staying at my home due to the global pandemic virus, so I cannot meet people.
