I had save money from my bridging course and previous small odd jobs to buy a phone and a second hand laptop to help me get my dream job, as I share a phone with 3 family members but I use it only for searching for work. It isn't up to date and is quite slow. But now that there is a lockdown I can't buy that phone and had to use the money saved for food, electricity and data so my nephew can finish school online. Due to the lockdown no one in my family can work. I am happy that I can provide for my family for this long, I don't mind starting from scratch again. The job that I qualify for requires me to have a laptop of my own.
