Like your typical recent college grad, I was temporarily employed with no permanent home and no real career path. After graduating in June of 2010, I have lived in Washington, D.C., Seattle, Los Angeles, and Boston — all in a little over a year. I have also worked in both politics and international development, for five different organizations, in eight different positions.

I am in way over my head in student loans, credit card payments and just debt in general, and I have been under constant pressure to find a “real” job to have “success” and “stability” in life.

But, as you can see, I chose the road less traveled (or I guess, the road of traveling). Despite not quite living up to the “American Dream,” I’ve actually found myself quite content with life — there’s nothing more exhilarating than waking up to a new city, swimming naked in the ocean, drinking from sunset until sunrise, learning a new language, feeling the earth under my feet, wind in my hair and just being able to take a moment to stop to breathe it all in. This has given me a sense of satisfaction no other job, house, car or money could ever give me; I get goosebumps at the thought of knowing that I am experiencing life and living (really living) every waking moment — through sleeping in tents, on moldy dorm rooms beds, yoga mats, hostel couches and in strangers' home. But, really, I wouldn’t trade any of this for the world.
