Hey, I'm Grace and I'm pretty young but I'm excited to explore the world one day.

I'm younger but I just feel like ditching college and just living on a boat and traveling across the world for the rest of my life.

It's another pipe dream, but wouldn't that be amazing? Traveling to Tokyo, Cape Town, New York, all of that. I used to sail with my grandpa when I was younger and I loved it. Anyone else just want to abandon reality and live on a boat for months on end and sometimes visit coastal cities? God, how I envy those lucky enough to afford a boat.

At some point I'd definitely smuggle drugs for cash, if I had this chance.

I feel you about ditching college, the semester's almost over though and you can always take a semester or even a year off to do stuff. That's what I did, and I CANNOT SUGGEST IT ENOUGH...i had some of the best times of my life.

Uf, feel that dude. I wound up sticking with my college timeline, and I have to say it's worked out pretty well since graduation- have travelled and gone on a ton of adventures since. But to be honest, the traditional career field is not one for me, and I need to find my sustainable living / anarchy boat community. You can definitely find some boats to hitch with, I'm new here but I've had a good time with workaway.

I feel like I don't want to go the traditional way everyone else has, I want to live differently. It'll be fun to live a life without going to college immediately or at all, probably will die before 30 tho.

I myself will be slipping out of the work force soon.Just as soon as i figure which means of travel i will be talking.I'm fortunate to be living near the gulf of mexico and sailboats are cheap everywhere!But i enjoy working when i have good coworkers and the job is'nt back breaking.I do plumbing and do homes with closest's that is a studio apartment."
I may build your house but i might just burn it down!'But always remember to think before you leap.Cheers!

Hi, Grace. Yep, I have that dream, too. Minus the drug smuggling. I don't want to wind up on Locked Up Abroad!

@Grace you can definitely do it, there's been many before you (men and women alike) that have dedicated themselves to living on the ocean. also, don't be in a rush to go to college since there's a lot of grants and stuff that you can qualify for after youre 24 (and therefore free of your parent's income determining your loan/grant amounts) so I say go travel when you're 18 and if you're ready do college at 24 and go from there.

also, you should watch the Hold Fast documentary:


I think it'll give you some inspiration.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
