What to do with my life?

I am making roughly 3,000 - 4,000 USD a day, no friends / life, give me some ideas on what to do and where to go. I live in an ok but very dull and boring area in the US, not sure where to travel but seriously bored out of my mind and want to have some fun.
Throw your ideas, something you know would be good for 23 y/o to experience.
Solo stop in Vegas

I've driven through Vegas on my way to LA a half dozen times and never stopped for anything more than a bagel and gas. I'm moving back to Colorado in a couple weeks and want to take in something of Las Vegas and the Las Vegas 'experience' this time. Right now I am mulling over two options:
a) leave LA early an arrive in Vegas around noon, spend a few hours gambling in one of the strip casinos, take in a Las Vegas buffet and be on my way before sunset, to camp somewhere along I-15.
b) leave LA around noon and get to Vegas in the early evening. Check into an airbnb or a cheap hotel (doesn't need to be near the action) and hit the strip. I'd do pretty much the same thing, but I'd be able to drink and have more time to take it in. Anyway I'd get up early and be on my way to Capitol Reef in Utah.
It's strange because I've always sort of shunned the trip to Vegas, seeing it as a waste of money. I am not interested in partying, but here I am seeing an appeal in the dreary glitz of sparkling casinos. Whichever option I go for, I have a couple questions.
I am willing to throw away $300 on roulette and blackjack. I assume I will lose it all, I'm just wondering how long that will take. Do the strip casinos have super high minimums? Might I find myself out of this money in minutes, not hours? If gambling is all I want to try, would it be better to go to a casino in some no-name highway town? Would it be that different from the strip experience?
Anywho, I'd appreciate tips on spending an afternoon to a night in Vegas.

I would like to ask for suggestions and experiences regarding a tour around Iceland that some college mates (so to speak) and I are planning.
>we are from Hungary
>we plan to go there around the middle of March, for one week
>plan to rent car & sleep via airbnb
We want to go around the entire island, but the biggest problem is the accomodation. Prices on airbnb start from around 130$/night/person which is very expensive, and we might also run into trouble due to our group size (no exact number as of yet, I estimate 5-8).
Do you know of any cheaper way to sleep somewhere? Sleeping in the car isn't out of the question, but it might get crowded & cold.
How hospitable are the Icelanders? Could we crash in someone's living room in sleeping bags or something?
Anything else you can add, I would appreciate it very much.
I know there are two existing threads about Iceland, but I don't want to derail them, I hope it's okay.
Picture unrelated, probably not Iceland.
addendum before posting: checked hostelworld.com as per the sticky, found some much lower prices, but not enough places for a round-the-island trip. We don't have an exact route yet, so I suppose advice in that regard is also appreciated.

I wish to plan a trip to Denmark, some time in the future. As for why Denmark, I don't know, but I have an unnatural liking towards the country, and I'm learning the language right now.
I'm trying to get advice on what to do there. I've traveled before, to Thailand and Hong Kong, but it was with family and I didn't really hold the reigns for the traveling decisions. Denmark will be my first trip where I get to hold the reigns and also my first time in Europe.
A thing that I already had in mind worth doing was biking, but maybe skiing as well. Is skiing worth it in Denmark, or would I be better off just going to Norway instead?
Also possibly fishing. Is it possible for a tourist to go fishing? Especially since I've only fished very few times in my life. Or would I just have to make friends that know how to fish to take me?
Are there any other fun activities like that? I'm not really a shopping and museums person, unless the museums can hold my attention. I don't mind seeing historical landmarks as well. And I'm definitely willing to go outside of Copenhagen.
I know my whole post might sound really vague for someone to give advice to since I haven't said anything about my budget or about how long I plan to be there. But this trip is very far into the future and I don't even know yet how much I'm willing to spend.
Again, I'm just looking for recommendations for stuff to do or what it will be like if I go there.

How to get by as a poorer student in a foreign country!

Guys, I would seriously appreciate any information you could provide.
I'm supposed to go to a university in Austria, Vienna (already spoke to the uni, summer semester, empty places left etc., got the requirements to get accepted yada yada), but guess what, I have no money. Not too surprising for a student, and a slav to that.
Reason I'm going is, I need to get my shit together, move myself. That aside though, my parent would be able to provide €250 monthly, and I would need to find a part time job, which would yield €350 max. ( Aus. law doesn't allow for more)
Total, I'd have €600 monthly, clearly not enough to survive each month.
I'm still missing about €200, as from what I've read online, you can get by just fine with ~€800. (I'll be living in a dorm, won't spend any money on unnecessary luxury)
Now, where the fuck do I get the additional €200 each month?
I already spoke to the Austrian federal aid people, and they aren't able to give me a grant, so that's out. Also, I'll already be working part time, so two part time jobs are out, since max. working time per week is 12 hours. Lastly, I really, really don't want to take a bank loan and have them take 20% of my salary for 20 years. Fuck. That.
Do you have any idea? This would mean so much to me!
