The interview will be depicted by initials. The Interviewer is QB and the interview is VS.
It should be noted that this is a continuation of a prior interview.
VS: If you want to travel then you take an empty suitcase that you carry around the house or the block. And then we take 12 coins and throw them out of the house to get rid of debt or old stuff.
Analysis: These are quite literal things for the family to do on New Years. Following the idea of “out with the old and in with the new”, the student and their family seem to literally remove old belongings from their home in hopes that a new fortune can help them in the upcoming year.
