The truth is that being on an “indefinite” strike sucks; however, being positive about how you spin it, could make the time really worth your while.
You think of other ways students can engage themselves pending when ASUU calls off the strike.
Here are a few things you could try
Plan a Business
As an undergraduate who is willing to become self-reliant, there is no better time to plan small business than now. The strike period is the perfect period to go out there, launch out plans that will help achieve the business ideas in your head. Get adequate information, don’t stay idle.
Learn a new skill
You finally have the time to learn a new skill. It could be photography, jewelry making, learning to play an instrument, baking, writing and producing music or playing a sport.
Take the time to learn it and get really good at it
Enrol for a Professional Certification Course
The university might be closed but there are other avenues for learning. You can enrol in short courses online or for professional classes that will grant you certain qualifications that may become useful in future
Even if you do not have the money to pay for these courses, you can go for free ones on portals like Coursera or Edx.
Get a job
While you are at home, you might as well make a little money. Get a job as an intern or assistant in an office or company preferably close to you so you don’t spend too much on transport.
You can even get a job as a paid apprentice at a salon or creative studio. Even more, you may decide to go for something freelance like writing or blogging.
Let’s not waste time getting sad and upset about the strike. Instead, use the time and invest more in yourself.
We hope and believe the strike will be called off soon, but before then, maximize your time wisely
