Advice for computer science major who wants to be nomad


by @jodebane |  | 3 comments

Hello. I am a high school senior in the Northeast USA who will soon be attending college. I have been traveling abroad solo since I was 16, and I have loved every second of it. I am going to major in Computer Science at American University, DC. Itโ€™s not a school thatโ€™s known for Computer Science but I loved the general culture and feel of the campus.

I want to be a digital nomad straight out of college if possible. I canโ€™t stand the thought of having 2 weeks of vacation a year. Iโ€™m most interested in freelance jobs that are web-design related, and where I can make good use of a CS degree.

Is this a good idea? How can I go about doing things in college in a way that will help me prepare for this digital nomad lifestyle? Should I prepare throughout my college life and do freelance jobs when Iโ€™m not doing schoolwork? Is there any good route for this that doesnโ€™t involve doing a regular job first?

  • Tokyo

    Tokyo has so much to offer and so much to do. It is easily overwhelming. Whereas I usually take my first week to explore a place Tokyoโ€™s sights just kept on going. I remember ending up in a hidden cocktail bar, a mexican rooftop party with 1 meter margaritas, spending a whole day going only to French places(?), visiting a store that only imported 2nd hand hiphop apparel, and throughout it all the best michelin star ramen. It just seemed endless, completely unrelated and incredibly fun. Six wee

  • Kochi

    Stayed a whole month in Fort Kochi area, eventually going to Ernakulam (downtown area). It is unarguably very different than rest of India, much more cleaner and with friendlier people. Beaches aren`t nice for bathing but are a great choice to catch sunsets everyday. Cost of living is dirty cheap and public transport is good. They even have a subway crossing the city with reminds me the BTS in Bangkok. Actually, Kochi to me is like a small and boring version of Bangkok, which is good if you need

  • Krakรณw

    Krakow is a brilliant city to live and work from. Friendly, easy to get around (usually able to walk everywhere), great internet and busy nightlife. Really pretty city, too. Kazimierz, the old Jewish district, is the obvious place to live. Loads of great cafes and other digital nomads there. I was there during the summer when it was between 24 and 30 degrees each day, which is perfect. No doubt a different experience in the winter, though!
