It’s a great honor to answer the question you proposed on Fverr. I studied English on campus and went to college in Wuhan, Hubei province. I grew up in Hubei who has worked in Beijing for two years since my graduation.
Beijing as the capital city of China, has seen great development of Chinese national strength. It is also my favorite city. I worked in a translation company in Chaoyang District, which is the center for us youngsters. Generally, I got up early to catch the right time subway to go to work. It is quite crowded at the morning peak but the subway is really convenient which can take me to the gate of my company. I worked as a translator for 2 years and translation is where my interest lies in. The translation work can get me a decent salary but it would be a little hard for sometimes I had to work very late even on weekends.
Besides my full-time job, I would get some freelancer jobs on fiverr or upwork to earn extra money and enrich my experience. The rent is high in Beijing, especially in the core area(Chaoyang District, Haidian District etc) which takes nearly half of my salary. Except for rent, other expenditures are mild in my opinion. It will not cost me much on eating or buying and Beijing has many traditional and tasty food which deserves to have a try. Every month, I will save a certain amount of my salary as my “Dream Foundation”. It could be used to prepare for emergency, travel all over the world or buy something that I have been longing for. It is kind of my little plans and my bucket list though.
As for the current life in China, take myself as an example. I am still staying at my hometown, Hubei province. However, it won’t affect my job because of the remote office and I can do the translation work with my computer. Life is better now than the outbreak of COVID-19 in China. It seems that international pandemic becomes more intense. As the condition turned out better and better in China, nearly all cities have cleared the quarantine restrictions (except for the suspected and confirmed cases and other specific requirements). China is gradually recovering from the catastrophe of COVID-19 and many commercial and domestic tourist activities went back normal. It is also required to wear face masks if you go to public places and daily disinfection is mandatory. From this perspective, China is doing a great job on preventing the spread of virus. So China is getting better and you don’t have to worry so much. BTW, it is quite easy to buy face masks or other infectant in China now.
From all the above, it shows maybe a slight perspective of life in China and is presented for your reference. The future of China can be astonishing in my eyes with more and more achievements China has made these years. The Covid-19 also proves the great work China has done to the world.
