how to afford travel

I want to travel around the world and do all sorts of cool shit. Problem is, I got memed into a chemistry degree that I'm not even done with. When I finish (if I finish...) next spring, there's basically frick all I can do for work. My stats are too dogshit for medical school, law school, or grad school.
The only option that I see is being a lab wagie in a windowless dungeon.

Should I try to remote meme (from scratch) or try to go to flight school? I'm just trying to figure out how I can travel around and not be homeless.

How do you afford to travel?

    This isn’t my actual budget btw but just for perspective
    >make 23/hr
    >2870 after taxes per month
    >1500 for monthly living expenses
    >you now have 1370 left over per month
    after a year
    If you have a 6 month emergency fund you put 6500 in your Roth IRA and 10k for a 6 month coomfest
    >rinse and repeat.

    If you don’t have a wife or kids or a homosexual girlfriend who drives up all your expenses you can do this easily

      1500 living expenses seems... optimistic.

      Do you just quit and get a new job every time you want to frick off for 6 months?

        my job gave me a pass to ride all public transportation for free and I don’t have health insurance

        Yes, as long as my Roth is maxed for the year and I have 6 months of living expenses idc. I can’t believe people accept a vacation as being 2 weeks per year. Some people don’t have a choice though. They decided to get married to some stupid c**t who shat out children so they can become enslaved to central bankers.

          Absolutely based. With the tax I've been paying recently I've been thinking about travelling more often and on more ocassions.

      24, live with my parents and make this much and have around 60k in investments and the rest is liquid. My job is pretty cushy and I honestly see my office cuck friends get home at like 7 everyday and work uncompensated overtime and I dont envy them making more than me

      Any decent worker making $23/hr will easily gross $5000/month, $3800 after taxes. If you are a single man and able to negotiate a great deal on rent close to work, 1500 USD for monthly living expenses is plenty of money. I pay 500 USD/month for a one-bedroom in Colorado within walking distance of work, and have averaged about 1200 USD/month in expenses this summer.

      1500 living expenses seems... optimistic.

      Do you just quit and get a new job every time you want to frick off for 6 months?

      Seasonal jobs often run for 5-9 months. My season is seven months, which gives me five months to frick off and spend my travel fund.

          Colorado anon here. I wasted three years and plenty of hard-earned money (both mine and my dad's) pursuing a chemistry degree. Dropped out of college, moved out on my own, renting an off-grid cabin with an outhouse for 150 USD/month, worked at Walmart a couple months to save a thousand bucks. Did some WWOOFing, worked odd cash jobs, slept in my car while traveling the USA, eventually landed a seasonal job at a resort that provided room and board. Saved $4500 in 5.5 months of work, my first travel fund. Since then I've spent more time traveling than working. Always had plenty of money for travel, but up until recently I lived very frugally (400-800 USD/month, in a minivan), which is why I always had plenty of money.

          It's a long story, with a few twists and turns, but my life is built on a mutually beneficial relationship with a local businessman. We began working together in April 2019; I parted ways in September 2020, but then I reconciled in September 2021, and our relationship has strengthened ever since. The business is a golf course, which I help to maintain. I am irreplaceable to my boss, as he is unable to find anyone else who even comes close to me in work performance and reliability. And after extensive travels, I have found no employer like him who always has my back and is always willing to help me out.

            Pretty based anon, good for you. Going forward, I’m pretty confident I’ll only have to slug it out for a year at a time before fricking off again.

    Where do you live that a chemistry degree is worthless?
    Here (belgium) you get hired instantly with a good salary if you know chemistry

      Chemistry is ok with a PhD. Worse than pretty much any other stem degree, but you can still get a decent job.

      If you only have a bachelors, you have basically 0 options. You would be lucky to be a lab tech working 80 hours a week for minimum wage.

    If you're doing chemistry I assume you have some sort of mathematically/shape-rotating competency. Pivot to a data science / programming job and join the WFH masterrace. You may have to work 2-4 years and save up enough to make the switch, but those years painfully slaving away will convince you of the necessity of the swap.

      Rotating shapes is about all I'm good at. I've heard of more than a few people with chemistry degrees getting into data science, but I'm not sure how they make that switch. I've never really programmed anything in my life.

      I see, thanks for the advice. I had no idea that job existed, but it makes sense.

    Go flip fricking burgers, you'd earn more daily than a surgeon does in all your third world destinations. You've already won the one lottery that matters, congrats.
    >b-b-but my comfy living expenses b-b-but I'd have to quit to have the time to travel
    These problems exist literally everywhere. At the end of the day, you'll still have a pile of money that'd make any thirdie jealous.
