Let me explain:

I am technically living here as a visitor. My dad works here for a bank, and I am currenly taking some online courses, however I travel back and fourth from here to where I lived. I spend most of my time here though, and during the daytime I can't seem to find what to do after I excercise a little and watch TV.

Where could I work, without having the whole work permit problems. Are there perhaps any amateur baseball/basketball/football/soccer leagues out there. What do you suggest.

It's a little unclear from your post exactly what your situation is. Are you not a US citizen? If you have a work permit, then you shouldn't have any problems, but if you're here on a dependent or student visa, then yes, you will have a difficult time finding work. There are things you can do to earn money under the table - babysitting, mowing lawns, and similar cash-based jobs come to mind.

Regarding finding something to do with your free time... there is plenty to do and see in this city. Read the sticky post for new residents/visitors at the top of the San Antonio message board or use the search function to find posts about activities for visitors/residents. You're only limited by your imagination and your desire to get involved. Best of luck!

Default Same situation/Kind of

I just moved out here as well and honestly I've been pretty depressed. San Antonio is beautiful but I don't know anyone out here and i'm such a shy person so it makes it even harder to make new friends. I start a job next week but so far I spend most of the day in my apt and its starting to take a toll on me.

Some advice on recreational activities or parks where I can go jogging would be wonderful.

Well, the area you live would be helpful as it would localize any suggestions nearby. But for now, I'd say head on down to Brackenridge Park!

Well, you found this forum, so clearly you have access to the internet. Use that resource to find places you'd like to explore. Try googling "San Antonio parks" or "San Antonio sports teams", etc. You will definitely get hits on things you're interested in if you search online.

The key is to get out of your apartment. Now. Go explore. People here are really nice. They will actually smile at you when you walk around. They'll even give you directions or suggestions. You just have to ask. Heck, with some people all you have to do is make eye contact.

And if you want to find ways to meet people locally who share your interests, try visiting Use the Internet to get off the Internet! - Meetup.com and MEETin.org - Fun Events Free Events Make new friends in your city.. Most of the people who participate in these activities are looking for the same thing you are... new friends. Welcome to SA!
