    So I live in this tiny village, like there's literally nothing here- no chance of getting a job. And my college is in the nearest city, like i get up at 6am and take a 2 hour bus just to get there. So most of the time I can't be bothered doing anything on my days off except the homework/assessments ect.

    What I'm really asking is what I should do to get a job? Especially when summer comes around, I want to save money... I don't have the money to move out to the city, and my bus pass costs £85 every month, so if I do get a job, there would be no point because most part time stuff wouldnt pay much more than minimum wage right? So like I'd be spending everything I earned just on transport... I'm feeling really helpless here tbh

    I have some experience, I was a waitress for my first 2 years of college (that was in the next town, but I fell out with the owner so not my reference of choice), and I have done lots of volunteer work at the red cross... And that's basically it. There are jobs going that I'm interested in, but I just can't see anything practical for my situation... Any advice?
