Turning 18 three months ago makes me feel anxious. I graduate from high school in a month, and can’t wait for the journey that’s in front of me.
For those that done’t, I was accepted to all state colleges, and had plans on going up north to college in August. I went on 2 visits there and was pretty excited. But then I started looking into the costs, and realizing that I didn’t even know what I wanted to major in. With the price of college, it simply makes no sense, for me, to spend all that money and not even know where I wanted to focus my studies.
So, I got this great idea of spending all the money I’ve saved over the years from working at Taco Bell and I’m going to travel the world, for at least 6 months. The goal is to leave by end of year, and not return until the following year’s Summer. I can’t explain how excited I am.
But I do have one major challenge. MONEY.
I have enough to get started, but I don’t have enough to travel for six months comfortably. And by comfort, I mean being able to eat and having a place to sleep. I’m not looking for great accommodations. It’s my expectation to travel frugally with a minimal budget. Even with that said, I’m far from where I need to be. I’d like to earn $10k minimal to create the level comfort that I think will be important to this journey.
I start this website giving you an idea of what I hope to achieve. If you are able to help, please please do. You can help by donating knowledge if you’ve previously traveled the world. I need to build a map of where I want to go and what I want to see.
Also, you can help by referring me to money generating opportunities helping me to build the budget needed form my 6 month adventure.
And, of course if you are able and willing, you can help me by donating money directly to me. Or, if you work for a company that has interest in sponsoring my travel, I’ve be open to creative marketing ideas like wearing company logos and posting to social media.
This website starts with a pitch, which is slimy and doesn’t make me comfortable. However, in time, this is where I post my journey for you all to enjoy. Thank you for considering to help me out with my grandiose goals!
