Is money the only solution?

100+
P: 344
The only idea in my mind is to travel and work in a better market with a better life-style!

I see nowhere that does not require a dozen of money to make a travel. I'm seeking a job, and it asks me for a minimum budget!!

A friend told me to travel as a student - to study - and many countries allow students to work. That is great, I can develop my English - really or any other language, according to the destination - and work! And again the money appears!

What is the less costly place to go? :)

My price in the local market, hardly makes me live like a ghost! So, I went to freelancing - Amazing! I've a better price - but clients still look at my nationality and decrease the price! They never know that places like what I live in, everything is expensive more than their. For example: Buildings never decrease its price here!!!

So, I need money to have a better life, and the better life asks me first for money!

Does anyone know where I can go?


Please, advise! And don't make a donation :D


Thanks a lot,

I think this is every beginners' problem. And specially when it comes to IT field and you are a freelancer, it's really tough sometimes. But from my experience so far, I can say that the key to survive is communication and networking with people. And once you get the chance, prove yourself. Maintain quality of work and convince them to continue more work with you. These basic things are common in anywhere you go.

Good luck :)

I just wish we all lived like ants.

Everyone had a function, and works towards a common goal: survival of the human race and its advancements in knowledge and technology.

But we are cursed with greed, mistrust, and selfishness.

With 6.5 billion people, situations such as yours is inevitable.

Sorry for my pessimistic lecture. It's part of life I guess so try your best and hope you'll get lucky.

Happiness is just really doing what you love regardless of money.

Apparently, it is. "Money can't buy you happiness but I would rather sulk in my Mercedes-Maybach". I get a feel of what you are trying to say and if you reside in any developing nation, it can take its toll. Start off a student, you can be yourself not pretentious, work internships and have fun while you are at it.

Thanks dlite922. I felt ashamed when I wrote that, but after your reply I felt not. I'm trying to survive, and playing my part so hardly, hope that works!

Jyoti Ballabh, great idea of fun, I don't know if that will delay me in my race to collect money or would help! Really I think by this way, too bad but too true.

Thanks a lot for your participating!

In your opinion what would you do to a lowlife person who is constantly irritating you??

@DR Rahul Kamboj
DR Rahul Kamboj! I didn't totally understand your question. Anyway, I think irritation does not change from a low-life person or from a high-class-life person! I'd agree it will be nice if it from a rich - with some niceness - lady :) And that is Jyoti Ballabh's point.

hi Ballabh, you kiddin' me? you don't need my help. we need yours. It's an honor man to share the same forum as you. Remember, last November when we did the coding sequencing together in Dr. Pomrenko's USAF convention in San Francisco. That was fun! Hey, the first thing I did after I came on bytes was to look for you. I went through your codes in perl, JSL, python, WPF app, masterpiece! why don't you write an article about the huffman encoder into WSQ. It will be great learning experince for all the Java enthusiasts.

Why do you have two usernames? Thanks for remembering side kicks like us.

Thank You for taking care of those unnecessary elements. Since I am new to the site, the "report" option escaped my notice. Thanks for coming up with this site, I truly appreciate the concept. There are some programs and codes here which are truly mind blowing and can have utility based applications. However, I have another pet-peeve, there are some forums related to the "Software Developments" where we have these E-school kids asking others to do their projects for them. That's just outrageous. Yea, if you reach a dead end on a project or get stuck with it, it's ok. Users can help you out but the whole project is just plain lazy.
