I'm thinking of applying to a Police dispatcher job since they make about 2k-4k a month. What I'd do is this: 1.) Work for about a year or so (probably more) and save up money (not counting what's being used to pay for rent). 2.) Take a month long trip through Europe and parts of Russia 3.) College #1 and 3 are the easiest to do. It's the second one that might be a problem. I'd have no one to go with me (my boyfriend won't leave the states ) and I have only so many friends in other countries. But on a whole, what do you guys think?
