MinggI'm fucking stuck. I basically worked this summer/fall so that I could be set for winter. So I quit my job last month so that I could ski as much as I wanted without worrying about shit. But it's clearly not going to be a good year and I have nothing to do. I don't really have any friends so I have a lot more free time than I would like to admit.
So I could get a job but what if I get stuck working during the only good days of the year?
But at the same time I don't want to do nothing and just wait for snow. I have a lot of trips planned(totally about 4 weeks) so I don't know if I could find a job flexible enough for that.
I guess that's what it comes down to, flexibility. I have college and skiing and other obligations. So I don't know. Would it be a bad idea to get a job? I have just enough money to make it through this winter with rent, food, gas, but really nothing else. But I don't wanna miss out on skiing. Fuck. Help me NS.
It is December, early December. It is way too early to be writing off the season.
If you NEED the money, certainly, get a job. You could do some temporary work for the holiday season to make some extra cash, but it would be short-term. Another option would be volunteer work at an animal shelter or something similar that has high turnover and requires little training.
However, if you financially stable (for a college student), then find a new passion/hobby, be it athletic, academic, or social. Joining a club/team will have the same effect on your resume as a job will with the added bonus of meeting more people your age.
Also, take the time to workout, develop good eating habits, sleeping habits, and athletic habits because it will only get harder as you get older.
There are a million ways to fill up those empty hours during the days where you would be skiing, you just need to figure out what you want
to do besides ski.
