Understandably, all resturants had to close to reduce the spread of this virus. I expect I will be welcomed back when the restrictions lift, however until then I must be able to pay my rent and bills on Centrelink payments alone. My monthly rent is over half of this payment and my power bills will be higher since I am spending more time at home.
Slowly, my hard earned savings, which would have helped me get through my next semester at uni will diminish. I’ll have to accept longer shifts and spend less time studying, which will affect my grades. This has happened before and has meant that I’ve had to spend more time on Centrelink as my degree has taken longer to complete.
