I’m hoping to keep up with my regular posting (whatever that is) and also posting each day for all of the prompts. Sure, you may get sick of me, but I’m cool with that :p
I really can’t call a post If I Had a Million Dollars without making reference to the Barenaked Ladies, so here’s the greatest song ever written.
When I was 12 or 13 I was part of a day camp that had an overnight trip to Vancouver. We basically did activities in our hometown and then hopped in a van and took a trip to Vancouver and stayed in dorms. I can’t exactly remember what we did there, but I do remember playing/listening to If I Had a Million Dollars about a hundred thousand times on repeat. I’m sure our camp counsellors absolutely loved us for that.
So, back to the topic at hand – the lottery.
I don’t regularly play the lottery, but sometimes when that pot hits the $50M mark (which I know is silly to only plan then because I surely wouldn’t turn down any amount of free money) I’ll buy a ticket and start fantasizing about what I’d do with the funds.
- No more winter. I have no idea where I’d go, but I’d surely make sure I wouldn’t have to suffer through any more -40 winters ever again.
- Buy real estate. I mean, that’s probably a no-brainer. I’m sure anyone who dreams of winning money would either buy a house or pay off an existing home because being mortgage free would be amazing.
- All of the trips. In case you haven’t noticed, I really like to travel. My list of places I want to travel to is about a mile long and my wallet is not that big, so winning the lottery would mean I could pretty much travel anywhere I please and I’d be sure to do it. I won’t even bother writing out my list because if you can think of a cool place – it’s probably on my list!
Those are really my top three. Of course I’d donate to charity and help out some friends and family, but I also wouldn’t become the Bank of Angela.
Looking at my list it seems a bit….simple….I suppose. If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the past two years, it’s that happiness doesn’t come from possessions, or living in a fancy house. I’m in charge of making myself happy and while money might give me more opportunities, I don’t see it vastly improving my happiness.
What three things would you do if you won the lottery?
