Good morning SI,
Happy Friday, and Happy Canada Day long weekend to my fellow Canadians!
Question of the day, what would you do if you won the lotto?
Our lotto here usually only gets to 50million. So if we won that, we'd move back to BC, buy a house on the beach, and get an RV, and travel Canada, and then travel the world with the kids. It'd be great. :)
Buy property and build 3 houses on it: 1 for my mom, 1 for me, 1 for my ex-husband. This way Talon could walk to anyone's house he wants.
Invest soundly and retire.
Travel everywhere, rent a sherpa and tip him outrageously
Donate time and money to worthwhile charities.
Cure Crohn's, or at least help fund the research.
Happy Friday to you as well, Serenity!
If I won the lottery, I doubt I would stop working, but I would probably drop to part time.
I would buy a house for my mom and a house for myself, maybe something on one of Michigan's many smaller lakes.
Traveling would also be big on that list. I so very much want to see the castles in England/Scotland/Ireland. That is most definitely on my Bucket List. :)
New house, new car for me and my GF, quit working in IT and breed snakes for a living :)
I would do so much nothing.
If I won the lotto...
I would pay off the debt for all of those that I love. I would sell my current house and buy some property next to a major university. I will get a degree in Literature or Philosophy and start teaching.
I would spend time studying abroad based upon the Literature that I have read when not teaching.
Spend time in Spain and Portugal while reading Hemmingway. Spend time in Russia while reading Dostoyevsky. Travel to the Himmalays as I read the Tibetan Book of the Dead....the list goes on and on.
I would hire a butler who speaks French and travel with a woman that shares my interest. I will live a life similar to Phileas Fogg from Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne.
I would avoid the life of revenge of the Count of Monte Christo (Alexendre Dumas), but would be a philanthropist of those who are beautiful people on the inside.
Perhaps life on a boat and christen it "The Flying Dutchman" or fund a private submarine named the "Nautilas," while researching the origin of cultures long lost under the ocean.
Step one: Don't tell ANYBODY.
Step two: Never work again
Step three: Live my intended life. I'm not interested in vanity, yachts, property. Maybe I'd travel. I'd definitely buy a new computer case. I wouldn't donate it to charity directly, but I'd give out thousands of dollars here or there. Maybe I'd trivia random people on the street for money. I'd be all "WHATS THE CAPITAL OF SPAIN?!" and if they answered I'd be like BAM, ten thousand dollars! I'd feed a bunch of hungry folks but for the most part my life would be the same, just a lot simpler.
Give half of it to my sister and parents.
Then I'd disappear with the other half XD............ don't tell anyone
I'd make a movie with it or use it to fund a TV show I want to make.
