Jobs that will help you move

Make money on the road

Online Poker
This is the perfect money-making means for risk takers. Many travelers who have funded their trips from their winnings on Online Poker.

Farm Work


Dishwasher or Kitchen Staff

Donate Blood

Trim some bushes

Resell stuff


Festival Stalking
selling $2 ponchos and umbrellas for double/triple the price out side of music festivals.

selling small stuff from door to door 

Find nice flowers, cut a pile and sell them around the night clubs. 

washing windows

offer to fix the guttering, drain, extract fans, and clear the fire exits at local businesses

By joining this service (annual membership is approximately US$30), you will gain access to a classified system of people looking for caretakers in exchange for rent-free living. The opportunities vary widely in scope from ranch hands, to organic farm workers, campground hosting, motel management, nursing for the elderly, to just plain house sitting. Locales for your next potential gig could be anywhere in the world, from numerous U.S. locations, to Australia, to Europe and even Micronesia.

WWOOF is an acronym for a number of different phrases, the most apt of which in my mind is “World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms”. It is an international organization (located in over 70 countries) of organic farms, gardens, businesses, ranches, (you name it) where you can exchange your services for accommodations, food, and training.
Required services include basic garden and farm maintenance, as well as cooking, teaching, caring for children, and handy work. There is usually some work suitable for anybody willing to adopt this lifestyle.

If you are happy to spend your vacation house-sitting for somebody else, you may find the right opportunity here. You will find lists upon lists of people requesting house sitters for periods of time from a few days to a few months, anywhere in the world. In many cases there are a few hoops to jump through in order to gain the opportunity with liability and bonding issues, and already living or traveling in the same country carries an added advantage.
You can choose from the limited free membership options or the full US$45 one year membership, depending on your needs.

Much like Caretaker’s Gazette and woofing, you will find many worldwide opportunities to proverbially “pick blueberries for a living”. The prospects aren’t limited to organic farms though; you will find hostel management jobs, artist retreat internships, in addition to various agricultural and permaculture settings.
For US$20/year, membership will help you gain access to many great listings and a user-friendly system of contacting hosts and searching for opportunities.

Couch Surfers are a network of people who are willing to open up their homes and hearts to frugal travelers, as well as be those travelers when they are not hosting guests. The site prides itself on referrals and having only high quality members, and has a comprehensive program in place to ensure the safety of both traveler and host. But as with any chance to stay at a stranger’s place for free, a prudent amount of caution should be exercised.

  Auto Driveaway offer is priceless – literally. They’re a delivery company that matches drivers with cars that need shipping, and all you pay is a refundable deposit and the cost of gas.

 Toronto Driveaway has fewer destinations available but offers trips to and from Canada. Once you are approved as a driver you may consider returning one of our client’s vehicles from Florida to Toronto during our peak season. From Mid March usually through mid May we pay the gas plus up to $250.00 Cdn bonus.

Kleen Kanteen



What fool hath added water to the sea,
Or brought a fagot to bright-burning Troy?
My grief was at the height before thou cam'st,
And now like Nilus it disdaineth bounds.
Give me a sword, I'll chop off my hands too,
For they have fought for Rome, and all in vain;
And they have nurs'd this woe in feeding life;
In bootless prayer have they been held up,
And they have serv'd me to effectless use.
Now all the service I require of them
Is that the one will help to cut the other.
Act 3, Scene 1 from Titus Andronicus by William Shakespeare

A work of art, literature, film, music or architecture that openly imitates the work of a previous artist, sometimes with the intent of satire. Alternately, a pastiche may be a hodge-podge of parts derived from the original work of others.

Direct and Inverse Relationships

Let us say that we are considering two quantities which we can call x and y. These could be anything - temperature and pressure, population and crime rate, weight and height, etc. If these have a direct relationship (or a direct correlation as we might also call it) that means that if you increase one, you increase the other, or if you decrease one, you decrease the other. So if x increases, y also increases. If it is an inverse relationship (or correlation) that means that increasing one will decrease the other. If you get more x, you will then have less y.
Note that there is a third alternative. Many things have no relationship, either direct or inverse, so if you increase x, that tells you nothing about what will happen with y. These quantities would be said to have no correlation.

"I must guard against a strong and increasing tendency to indulge in dogged, sullen conduct - the conduct of vexation (much promoted by want of exercise); but I confess that much as I love them, I could wish them both to the Devil, with their high-flown, egocentrical points of honor and their purblind spurring one another on to remarkable exploits that may very well end in unnecessary death. In their death, which is their concern: but also in mine, to say nothing of the rest of the ship's company. A slaughtered crew, a sunken ship and my collections destroyed - these do not weigh at all against their punctilios. There is a systematic flocci-naucinihili-pilification of all other aspects of existence that angers me."
Master and Commander by Patrick O'Brien p. 336-337

"The wine is drawn, it must be drunk. The frog has neither feathers nor wool, and yet she sings. You will have to sail up to the Downs, eating the bread of affliction off your cable-laid baubles, and wetting it with the tears of misery; and I may tell you, sir, that you will eat it without me."
Post Captain by Patrick O'Brien p.198

You are not to eat any hametz with it; for seven days you are to eat with it matzah, the bread of affliction; for you came out of the land of Egypt in haste. Thus you will remember the day you left the land of Egypt as long as you live.
Deuteronomy 16:3
          Matzah is an unleavened bread eaten at passover to commemorate the flight of the
 .        Israelites from Egypt.

career advice

Getting an MS Desktop cert is the most valuable, easy, and widely applicable certificate that you can obtain. It's basically a "I know how to do shit with computers" certificate that isn't very specific. It's learning a bit of everything and gives you the basic IT foundation. I know everything an MS Desktop Cert entails because I've done it all through growing up, but I'm still going to go test for mine next month.

Job agencies are your best bet for entry-level and temp jobs.
