My friends all went skiing over vacation, and I feel bad because my family can’t afford to go skiing. I feel like I am the only person at Casti who can’t ski, and I don’t know what to say when people are talking about it ALL THE TIME!!!

Don’t worry about it. You don’t need to go skiing to have fun. People are talking about skiing, because it’s something they did over break, and they’re excited about it. Anything besides homework is exciting for many students here! You can contribute to the conversation by talking about what you did over break, even if you didn’t go anywhere. We call those breaks “stay-cations,” and they’re really good for catching up on sleep! 🙂
You could also tell your friends that what they’re saying is making you uncomfortable. If they’re good friends, they’ll understand, and they’ll appreciate your honesty.
