      Which industry do you work in that allows you to work remotely and pays you this much? I'm also a mechanical engineer but I work in infrastructure as a pseudo-civil engineer in a kind-of-third world country. I want to pivot to machine design but I heard that shit is hard to enter with terrible compensation compared to other fields of mechE.

        engineers doing actual design work in the US are required to be licensed in most cases. this is unlike most of even the developed world where all you need is the degree. this gatekeeps a shit ton of engineers in the US and inflates the salaries and bargaining power of those that do.

          Who in their right mind would choose to be miserable doing what they do, when they could choose to enjoy doing what they do? I've done both - same job, same house, same town, different years. When I choose to enjoy what I do versus hating it, I have more energy, do a better job, spread good vibes to everyone I meet, enjoy my evenings on the town, and earn a lot more money for my winter travels. Having five months of freedom every year definitely helps me appreciate having a productive and structured life.

    Im a psychologist. I built up a client base and rep in a rural town then moved to doing telehealth only so I can travel. I do an average of 10 sessions a week and make 10~k a month before tax. I go back home every 3-6 months to do training to maintain my registration. Sometimes if I make acquaintances at universities I visit, I get networked with people working in community health and development/promotion and I get the occasional chance to do some consulting contracts which is nice for experience considering I want to work for WHO at some stage. I'm hoping I'll find a wife at some stage during my travels but so far no luck, I'm becoming more convinced my best hope is a nice girl in academics but I'm not in a rush, I'll just keep enjoying the nomadic life until life throws an opportunity my way.

      What are the main reasons you haven't been interested in furthering relationships with women you meet whilst traveling?

        >Do you psycho analyze women when you go on dates?
        Haha, no I don't really psychoanalyze anyone outside of the office. People think us psychs are always watching and quietly assessing, but what people dont really underatand is that it is exhausting and requires your brain to be switched on when you have your psychologist hat on. Best way I can describe it, is it's like working hospitality - you switch on your service persona at work and do the things expected of good service (smile, small talk, laugh at customer jokes ect), but when you knock off you want to switch your brain off and have a beer. I might notice small things other people don't if they don't know to look (anxiety signs, potential signs of maladaptive behaviours in stories) but I can't really confirm those things unless I make a point of further questioning. At the end of the day I just treat people like people and it's safe to say if I'm not being paid, I'm not looking at anyone through a clinical lense.

        >What are the main reasons you haven't been interested in furthering relationships with women you meet whilst traveling?
        Good question..I've always been a bit of a black sheep, so figured if I travel I might find "my people" so to speak. I have been in love once, and it is a very distinctive feeling, but also the build up of the relationship to that love is a unique chemistry and feeling. So far I just haven't found anyone where I felt we were genuinely on "the same level", sometimes they are too nice for me and I know they won't like my humor, sometimes they have values unaligned with my own which I sense don't work out longterm. Essentially I want a partner who challenges me, has high emotional intelligence, is genuinely kind, has a sense of optimism and doesn't mind a bit of dark humor. Just hard to find someone who has the majority of those things, or at least it's hard for me.

        >Do people treat you differently once they learn you're a psychologist?
        Haha, yes many people absolutely do. Lot's of people seem to think psychologist means mind reader, and they become visibly uncomfortable thinking I am seeing all their hidden secrets, or psychoanalyzing them. Some people ask for life advice which is not really the point of therapy. The questions I don't mind answering are when someone says they know someone woth mental illness but struggle to understand what that means, or struggle to understand their behaviours - I like educating people on mental health where applicable. If I want to keep a low profile I might tell people "I work in health" or "I do mental health case management" which normally has people not ask too many followup questions.

        >Have you ever gaslit a client?
        The closest I ever came to doing something that kind of falls under the definition was when working with a treatment resistant schizophrenic - he was talking to his auditory hallucinations and I asked him questions about who he was talking to and what they were saying. The therapeutic reason for that was to evoke him to reveal more information about himself I could cross reference with his scattered history in his file so I could try and determine how much of what he said about himself was based in reality.

      Do you have any savings? What happens if your car breaks down? What about a 401K and retirement? We all like to travel but it's not wise to work for 6 months, blow all your money on a trip, and then start again from scratch each time. You will never progress in life. Instead of spending you wages on travel, invest that money in learning a skill so you can earn $40 an hour.

    I work as a consultant in two unrelated fields, one of which pays fairly well, both of which could theoretically be done completely remotely. But it’s all contract-based and self-directed, so I’m busy for a few weeks or months at a time and then free. But I don’t take many long trips—I take many short ones throughout the year, to countries I can reach within <4hrs by air. Long holiday weekends, a week, etc. This is partially because I like it more than living out of a backpack, and also to accommodate my wife, who has a normal/less-flexible job, albeit one with a lot of PTO. I usually take a full four or five weeks off in the summer, because I live in Europe and that’s what most people do, but I probably only actually travel for two of them. We only do “big” trips (longer than two weeks, or farther from home) every couple of years.

Low level wagies e.g. fast food usually get ZERO paid leave but corporate jobs give a standard 10 or 12 paid days off a year, many of which will be wasted with no reimbursement. Of course it's possible to get jobs with more, but America is insanely behind the rest of the developed world in labour laws.

        Not to mention that it’s becoming increasingly common for paid time off to also be used as sick time. So if you have to call out, which you inevitably will, they will use your PTO and you will have even less vacation days. Most people end up with one 7 day vacation per year and that’s it in Weimerica. On top of that, even if you’re okay with taking time off unpaid so you can travel more than your allotted one week per year, you still have to request the time off from your employer only for them to deny it 90% of the time. There’s exceptions, but that’s the standard.

I grew up poor and Medicare covered access to top-notch medical care. If you're lower middle class and up, you do get fricked though. They do have access to quality medical care thoughever, even if they do pay out the ass.

        Kek. Project managers are glorified "ideas guys". In real jobs, the team leader has a role and title that isn't as vague as "manager", they actually contribute to the goal being worked towards.

      If you're American join the Air National Guard in a field with a big signing bonus and a lot of seasoning days. Then collect that bonus, plus your wages and BAH ('move' to a high CoL city before basic), then get that sweet per diem while living in a hotel for seasoning days all the while just store your shit at your parents. You'll come out with around 30-40k relatively quickly and you won't be such a pathetic loser. Then just travel in between drill weekends. That's what I did/do, then volunteer for all the deployments and TDY's and you'll never fall below 5 figures in your bank account.

      My buddy went into a cyber job in the ANG, got out after six years, and with his top secret and the training he got he could walk into a six figure job if he wanted to leave our small town but instead he settles for 60k.

      t. Been doing that for 8 years now and still haven't died for ~~*israel*~~

    I used to make suits. I did it for about a year which is the longest I’ve ever worked a job. I just quit a couple weeks ago and have a one way to Cambodia. I have 6K saved and I want to travel forever essentially. Just be free as the wind and go where I please as I please even if that’s back home. I’m 22 but honestly don’t know if I’m already failing for my age. I see shit like “23, software CEO fully remote making 230K and I work 2 hours a week” and I think “frick am I moronic?”. Who knows maybe it’s larp, I’m just not a STEM/schooling guy. My current plan is building a lifestyle brand as I travel and just blog and make YouTube videos and shit and build up my “brand” as I go. Long as it starts pulling in 1K a month I can live literally anywhere save for Singapore, NYC, and other shit like that. Anyways thanks for listening to my blogpost, any advice is greatly appreciated.

      At your age taking risks to achieve your dreams is okay because you still have very little to lose should you fail. If you haven’t achieved your goals after 5 years and you’re still working odd jobs for scraps then it’s time to face reality and get an education and a real job so you dont end up being a broke loser for the remaining 50 years of your life

I hope when they lie down on their self break they pause and reflect where their close friends and acquaintances have gone, and then when they look at their gigantic crypto account filled with memecoins and stonks they can never use they will tell themselves "hey I made it and this is all worth it"

          The fact that you unironically thought this somehow refuted the point proves just valid it was. Nobody gives a frick if you sign on off on stuff, get a better job, make more money. Their life is basically over. If you wrote the biography it would read “anon got a good job in his 20s and then jobs that just paid more money until he died”. That’s it. What a life, right? This is the point that was being made. These people hustled as if college and a particular office job was the end goal in life and subsequently, they never lived a life. It’s not even like they achieved freedom or self-sufficiency or anything that money is actually good for, just more money for no real reason. If you thought pointing out their job got easier or higher paying refuted this obviously true statement, you might be one of these people.

    I save $2.2k/month as a software engineer, which is more than enough for a nice trip each year, and chunky ETF purchases.

    How do you do this too? Have a STEM degree, create a portfolio (make people websites for free), and apply (a lot). Also, minimize your expenses. That means ZERO subscription service besides heating, water, phone bill, internet bill, electricity, etc. No Amazon Prime, Spotify, or Netflix. Buy good clothes 1 a year. My 3 pairs of $150 pants are all that I've worn for the past 3.5 years.

    Currently I work on tugboats in the Gulf of Mexico on a 28 day on and off schedule. The work is simple and easy, stress free, but yet the pay is still nice. Currently my day rate is $415. They also pay for my travel expenses to and from the ship. The food is free. I don't pay rent. Everything I make goes to traveling on my month off.

    It actually ends up being cheaper for me to travel than to live in the US. If I had an apartment, I would be forced to pay the rent even when I'm out on the water for a month. We all know how expensive rent is in America. I'm looking at $2000 over the course of 2 months at the very least. Whereas in South East Asia a beautiful condo cost me $500 for my month off.

    Eventually when I upgrade my license to a mate, my day rate will be in the $600 range. At that point I'll hang up the tugboats and go work on larger vessels on a per contracts basis. This way I would only need to work a 3 month contract and be done for the year. I don't need more money than that.

        Pay $2,000 to say in Houston vs. pay $2,500 to see the rest of the world. I think his point too is that he would be stuck on a lease in Houston - short-term stays there wouldn’t be “pay $2,000 for one month.” That would be the cost per month of leasing for a year.

        I attended a year long apprenticeship through my union. If you do a google search, it's called the siu unlicensed apprentice program. It's free to attend, they house and feed you, and take just about anyone because zoomers are not interested in pursuing this career. You come out of it with an upgraded license and a higher seniority level in the union.

      What do you do for work? What jobs are there that both pay you enough and give you enough flexibility and time off to travel?

      I'm a 26yo software engineer, making just over $56k (the USD equivalent, which is decent for where I live). Work consists mostly of writing SQL, sifting through a massive database looking for stuff, and a writing some Python scripts. This summarizes most of the work I've done during my 5 years of experience.

      I've been lucky enough that work's taken me across North America, and even to Asia for 3 weeks once. I never sought positions that involved travel, it just happens with every job I get.

      I currently get 4 weeks of vacation each year, and because my expenses are relatively low, I am able to take full advantage of that time. I can visit family for a week, and do my own stuff for 3 weeks.

      I'm kinda coasting with my career and life right now because it's quite comfy. I have my own clean and organized apartment; I have a nice computer and the internet; I have a reliable car; lots of hobbies; and a sexy woman that likes me. Idk what else a person needs.

          Honestly, I don't know. In a way, I just got lucky landing my current job. My manager liked a specific buzzword on my resume, and I highly suspect that's why I was invited for an interview with my company. My skills weren't given to me with luck though, I worked hard to acquire them.

          >BSc Physics, Minor in CS
          >4 months experience programming in academia
          >1.5 yoe at first job
          >500+ applications,14 interviews, over 8 months of unemployment after 1st job
          >3 portfolio websites hosted and accessible, a dozen more projects on GitHub with video examples of what they do

          All this and I still struggle to get interviews. Good luck!

        NTA but i was in for 12 years as well. not "retired" but i do get some gibs (%40 VA rating).

        and its not "fake", the word disability here is a misnomer designed to shame people into not applying for it. the deal you strike with the US government is that you lend your body to them during for a certain amount of time. Should they not return you to civilian life in the exact same condition they received you, they owe. if somebody borrowed your car and put a scratch in it, i'd expect you'd want them to pay for it regardless of whether or not if effects the car's functionality. same thing.

        I had actually had a blast in the military. got to travel the world, learn a trade, chase foreign pussy, drink with bros. never saw combat, never even saw a warzone. it was like an adventure club for boys. yes i was a POG. i have some minor hearing loss from being around loud ass machinery and some joint problems from working extended periods of time, but i figure i woulda got that working in civilian trade scenario anyways and gotten nothing. still in better shape than most dudes my age.

            I went in with the mindset of "I will not lie not pad my shit, but I will claim every single little thing, from the littlest thing like stubbing my toe, to the most serious issue I had."

            It paid off for me. I did my research, I did extensive lookups into disability codes, into secondary claims by way of primary, everything.

            I thought to myself "This will be tax free money for the rest of my life that no one can ever take away from me. I will do whatever grueling work I need to do so I made sure I covered everything"

            Well, I can tell you that just because something is easy doesn't mean it's achievable. Yes, it's easy once you submit all the proper paperwork, and it's easy because they pay gibs for a lot of dumb shit. What is not easy is doing proper diligence, which almost no one does.

            I know people who are in much worse shape than me from shit that happened in service, yet they are waiting tables and dealing with shitty restaurant managers, while I'm sitting at home saving shit, taking advantage of every single disability gib and civilian gib for disabled vets.

            Many such cases, then they'll spend the rest of their lives harping on video in their truck about any sort of civilian welfare they can

            This me. I have tabs upon tabs and spreadsheets of all the possible welfare gibs I can receive, and how to apply to them all. It's all I've been doing for the past couple of months.

              Nah dude, you're not lying to a civilian. I know the whole VA process because I've been through it myself. If you didn't play up any issues for VA rating brownie points, then good for you. I just know the system is too easy to game, because I've seen it done.

              Also unironically thought about reporting the basic fraud but I have no proof. That's a story for another time (or never) though.

                I've heard the stories too, and I'm sure they're all true. The reason I mention that point when it comes up in conversation is so that people realize that you can actually get insane gibs without making shit up

                I've been in for ten years, am still in, AND am currently deployed to the AOR so stop with your homosexual vet bro shit.

                Black people get 10% disability if shaving irritates there skin. They will literally get a shaving waiver, then not have to shave again, then get out, and then will collect a couple hundred bucks a month. How in the frick is that not "milking the system"?

                Oh, also you never fricking deployed and you were in for twelve years? What sort of pussy fricking excuses did you give your chain of command to get out of deploying?

                >the reality is people are lazy and they don't try
                Or they're lazy and want huge gibs like yourself? Nobody is impressed with your ability to trot into the VA with a stack of records from being seen on base clinics and is actually reading your story and thinking "golly gee, this guy worked hard at getting his disability!"

                At the end of the day though, congrats on being a welfare queen. I won't lie and say I wish I would have been seen for more shit on my deployments, I work one of the more physically demanding jobs there is, but tbh I hurt myself in the gym more than I do in the field. Maybe next time I'll go in and say "my wotator cuff hurts" and see if I can't get a fat stack of ~~*disability*~~

                There's two types of people who enlist and recommend others to do the same. The first are just morons who don't know any better. The second are the sort of foreverboots who stand at attention while waiting in line to get a haircut. You already know you belong to this one, which might be worse than the first one.

                Damn, black people get 10% for shaving. Well, good for them I suppose, I'm sure the extra 160$ a month will go all towards bettering themselves. Really milking the system there I suppose.

                Yes, I didn't deploy in 12 years. Turns out certain rates which require an ASVAB score of over 50 are rates that don't require deployment. You wouldn't know this, but it's true.

                I was a desk jockey with a TS. Never had to give any pussy excuses to get out of a deployment, because there wasn't one to get out of.

                I'm not trying to impress anybody with my uncanny ability to read spreadsheets and write things down, although I get why that must sound impressive to you.

                At one point I was a moron like yourself, but then learned all the shit about claims from other people - and now I mention how I did it to others so they do the same. Whenever I hear about a fricked up vet that is struggling, yet they don't do any work towards submitting claims or getting any gibs - out of ignorance or laziness, I legit get upset and help them get a cut of the pie - because other people getting theirs isn't going to take away from mine.

                Right now you're too stupid to realize it, but when the time comes to get out and start making claims, you're going to be singing a different tune. Come back to the forum and ask for help, if the line is slow at the unemployment office I'll help you fill out your forms. No hard feelings.

                You're welcome for my service.

        I take it you never served then, which is fine, because again I don't recommend it to anyone ever. The military is what you make of it, so people say sometimes - but the reality is there are cases that you get served with a steaming pile of shit and there's nothing you could make with that except just shit.

        If you think you can just be in the military and fake the muh disability, then I suggest you join and find out. You might be that one dude we all hear from that's milking the system, and if you are then I'd be happy for you. For every one of that dude there's 10 thousand that aren't, and get fricked beyond belief. Chances are you'll be one of those.

        There's a reason vets have the highest rates of homelessness and suicide, think about it, if it were that easy, everyone would do it.

        >Retired Military, 12 years
        impossible. You must be disabled or something.

        Yes, at 12 years I got medically separated with a 100% disability rating. Although, if you saw me walking down the street you wouldn't think there's anything wrong with me.

        NTA but i was in for 12 years as well. not "retired" but i do get some gibs (%40 VA rating).

        and its not "fake", the word disability here is a misnomer designed to shame people into not applying for it. the deal you strike with the US government is that you lend your body to them during for a certain amount of time. Should they not return you to civilian life in the exact same condition they received you, they owe. if somebody borrowed your car and put a scratch in it, i'd expect you'd want them to pay for it regardless of whether or not if effects the car's functionality. same thing.

        I had actually had a blast in the military. got to travel the world, learn a trade, chase foreign pussy, drink with bros. never saw combat, never even saw a warzone. it was like an adventure club for boys. yes i was a POG. i have some minor hearing loss from being around loud ass machinery and some joint problems from working extended periods of time, but i figure i woulda got that working in civilian trade scenario anyways and gotten nothing. still in better shape than most dudes my age.

        You're right on the money. I used to be one of those that thought "Disability isn't for me - I have both legs still". I thought you'd have to be Captain Dan looking mf to get disability, especially something like a 100% gib I got. Turns out, that's not the case.

        I went through all my records of all my visits in 12 years, from the smallest thing to the most serious ones. Literally weeks, probably months of work. I submitted for everything and anything I was seen, some things got me a %, some didn't.

        At the end of the day, everything added up, including the VA math, chalked up to be 100%.

        The reality is people are lazy and they don't try. If they did, they'd be surprised with the amount of gibs they get. Chances are you could be doing much better than 40%, yet you sit here content with what you got.

        A lot of people don’t even deploy OCONUS so I don’t know how you figure it’s an adventure club

    I spent my 20s and most of my 30s in a white collar job earning low 6 figures. I made maybe 3 bad decisions in a short period of time, each of them compounding the others. I lost everything I owned and put my family in danger. With my last bit of money, I flew to Asia and started teaching. After doing it under the table for a few months, I took a teaching job in Korea and slaved away while saving money. Two years later, I moved to a different country. Over the last 10+ years, I've lived and worked as a teacher around the world but mostly Asia. I've bought two houses in North America that I rent out and earn a small profit from, but they are primarily my retirement plan. I still teach but mostly just for the visas and I do some other work on the side. I've got kids now that I support and a couple of amazing women. Overall I'm quite happy with life, much more than in my previous life.

    Question for devs working for consultant companies - you ever got role to relocate and what was your position when you got it?
    I would like to move from my shithole, totally change my life until there is still left in me, and i currently work in consultant companies that makes relocation if needed. I can move that way to Vietnam for example for cooming and cheap life.
    But i guess relocation offers are mostly for senior devs right? Do you need to have some rare skillset so company will help you relocate for projects? I am only mid dev at the moment, can you rellocate as mid dev too?

    I have a job that allows me to travel and work, but the former is marred by the latter. I don't like going to a destination with the intent on enjoying myself only to spend half the day making calls or in stand-up meetings where the CEO fellates himself while we all play Tetris in the background

      >I don't like going to a destination with the intent on enjoying myself only to spend half the day making calls or in stand-up meetings where the CEO fellates himself while we all play Tetris in the background
      I know what you mean. My company has weekly all-hands meetings where each team jerks itself off every Friday at 5. I tried playing hooky when I was in Europe but they called me out on it. I seriously have better things to do than to hear how our products are doing or to congratulate Jan from accounting on her ugly baby.

      I hate having to give up my Friday nights for the dog and pony show. Sadly, the company was founded by alumni of a certain company known for its toxic work culture and slavish devotion to the corporate kool aid. They're the kind of people who post on LinkedIn about having monthly check-ins with their manager to see how they're doing. I really need a new job, sadly fully remote gigs are hard to come by these days thanks to the tech layoffs. Everyone and their mother wants the SighSee lifestyle these days.

      i think a lot of people truly hate their jobs. i find my work interesting (IT) so i really dont mind working a few hours in the morning, going out for a bit, send an email here and there. call me weak, but work does give me the discipline to pursue my other hobbies like music, fitness ect. i knew a retired marine once and he told me that the less time you have to do something, the more efficient you are at it. in short, ive never been against work. i just hate being chained to a desk ALL day every day.

    No actually not a monthly check-in, a WEEKLY check-in. I actually saw a post like this on LinkedIn from one of my colleagues.

    A monthly check-in is reasonable, even a good idea, to make sure you're meeting expectations. But once a week? And bragging about it on LinkedIn too, with you and your manager jerking each other off for all to see? That rubs me the wrong way. No wonder this company has such a high turnover.

      I have a check in twice a week with my manager. It's one of the reasons I'm looking for another role.

    Buyer making 50k, not remote. I get 120 hours a year. Annually, I usually take a few days here and there, then 2 weeks at once to coom in SEA. It's not optimal, but it keeps me sane.

    Teach English. Flexibility on where and when you work and lots of vacation days. Can have a really good career if you get qualified as well.

    Got lucky with crypto but I don't travel much because I hate travelling alone and I lost all my friends and don't know how to make new ones. Sucks that the people who really love it are strapped for cash and losers like me have money but can't even make use of it.
