everything you listed sounds like student life. I work two bartending jobs, and am joining the reserves to try and get some extra summer employment, already cut my budget down to start saving cash and paying off student debts.

I am still planning on starting small. I am going to try and get my bronze in spring, and try to find a boat to crew on. Figured A. I still get the experience, and B. It doesn't cost me anything (well probably just club fees).
