is anyone a doctor? i'm going into my freshman year of college and i'm pre-med. at northwestern. i know its not exactly the most conducive for riding waves but somebody tell me i can make it work.
you can make it work if you really want to. the hours spent in a classroom or hospital far away from the ocean will likely be paid back ten-fold after you graduate, tho that depends on the course you choose. personally, that wouldn't be my locale of choice at this stage in my life, but at 18 i made the choice to go to school inland for a change in geographic scenery & surroundings. it was a great decision if for no other reason than the fact that it reinforced my desire to live w/in walking distance of the ocean.
i know several doctors that went to school inland & surf. one is my gp.
I run a mattress store in monmouth county NJ. Its actually pretty chill I get to work asstastic hours but go in late and come out late so I can surf all morning. it pays good money too for being 24. We sell memory foam beds the are GREEN!!!!! They are made of mostly tree seed oils instead of petroleum and the covers are made of silt which is a wood pulp fiber! Plus I get to hook up all the people i surf with and friends soooo cheap when they come in or call... I get to watch surf vids when were slow and check the report all day and even go shred for a bit when its worth it to come back. ... I def agree it was a good idea to post this thread, its important to realize that we all come from different places and jobs....
I'm obviously in the minority here (what else is new) but I kinda don't want to know what people on this board do for a living. If I wanted to know that, I'd PM the guy or get together for a few beers.
I just like reading the rants, raves & the opinions. I prefer the opinions to be unqualified by 'what you do for a living.'
f u c k that's so DC & NY
You must be the one who always starts the arguments on this forum. This is not suppose to make people better or worse than others, more to find more things in common besides surfing with the members of this site. If you're unemployed and angry about it, you're not the only one out there. There is no need to get ancy about the topic.
