How to find cheap summer accommodation if you’re not doing a tech, consulting or finance internship

It’s almost summer vacation, and you’ve got your non-tech, non-advisory, non-financial, non-selling, low-paying but actually improving the world for the better internship. Congratulations!

But there is a problem: you procrastinated to find summer housing, and now it seems that there are no more suitable and cheap housing options in the New York/San Francisco/ Los Angeles/Seattle/Boston. Well, fear not! Here are some helpful tips for finding the perfect place at the perfect price:

  1. Sell ​​some of your non-essential organs to increase your purchasing power: There are so many organs that the human body does not need. By keeping these organs, you’re wasting valuable money that could go towards your summer accommodation! You can start small – the spleen is important for the immune system, but don’t let that information stop you from selling it. The liver can very well take over many of its functions. If you’re feeling more daring, you can auction off your least favorite kidney.
  2. Sneak into someone’s car trunk: If you think about it, you’ll be doing so many fun things in the summer that you’ll only need your summer accommodation to sleep, which is why all you have to do is sneak into the trunk of the car from someone. It’s easy. Just follow someone home, hijack their car and you have a shiny new crib for the summer!
  3. Live in a tech giant’s guesthouse without him noticing: This one is simple. Pretend to be a gardener, then sneak through a window into one of Elon Musk’s guesthouses. He won’t even notice that one of the 28 rooms in his mansion is home to a stranger. If that doesn’t work, try Mark Zuckerberg’s five-home estate in Palo Alto.
  4. Do not sleep : Since you will mainly use your summer house for sleeping, a simple solution to having no summer accommodation is to not sleep! You’ve practiced not sleeping so many times throughout your college career that you’re finally ready to test your skills with the ultimate challenge: stay awake for 2,016 hours!

Now that you know these simple and practical tips for affordable summer housing, you’re ready to start your internship and start changing the world!
