It's almost a paranoia in a way.

[Interviewer]

How has COVID-19 impacted your daily life?

[Cody]

Well, compared from before it started to now, it was a lot easier beforehand. And now it's, it's almost a paranoia in a way. It's just changed a lot of lifestyles and everything like that and has impacted a lot of people.

[Interviewer]

Yeah. What did you under appreciate before COVID that you appreciate more now?

[Cody]

Spending time with friends and family and going out and doing things, when now there's a lot of restrictions.

[Interviewer]

Yeah. How will the pandemic change society once it's over?

[Cody]

I definitely feel like it'll definitely be a lot cleaner and people will definitely... People will be more aware of their surroundings and everything like that.

[Interviewer]

Yeah. How did isolation affect you and how has it impacted your relationships with family and friends?

[Cody]

It was pretty hard at first. I couldn't really go out, spend time with a lot of family just because they also had kids and people that were very concerned about COVID-19, and then the thing that fixed that was getting a pet.

[Interviewer]

Yes. And then lastly, what pre-COVID memory keeps you hopeful and what possible future keeps you going?

[Cody]

Honestly, that's a tough one. I guess I would just say the love of both family and friends and just that hope that keeps us going.

[Interviewer]

Yeah.

[Cody]

That's the best answer I got.

[Interviewer]
