So, let say that I won the lottery. (I wish!) Here’s 5 things I would do with the money….
1. School! Just because I could go. And maybe I would get a part time job somewhere, to keep busy. Or maybe I would paint all day, and open a studio. But anyways, I would love to go to art school.
of course with a big back yard, where I could have a garden. And a huge patio set, for summer bbq’s.
And if I could, I would buy a whole street (or make one?) so my family & friends would all be around me, and not have to worry about buying a home, or making the payments. And we would have block parties every month, and big dinners every sunday.
3. And of course if I won the lottery, Brian and I would quit our jobs. Like, that day. And book ourselves on a cruise, ASAP. And we would sail around, drinking fruity drinks 24/7. An alternative- fly straight to Europe, and backpack around. Fly by the seat of our pants. Buy clothes as we go.
4. And of course we would buy ourselves a new car… (that’s what you would do too, right?)
Maybe one of these…
And then one of these for our backpacking excursions…
(it’s a hummer h4- I’ve never even seen one of these before… apparently it’s supposed to be released this year)
5. And of course I would have to do something charitable… So, after thinking about this last night, I decided I would donate to high school art departments. Schools are often not funded as they should be, and I remember at my high school we had to change our photography class to digital because they didn’t budget in for a darkroom.
And so that’s what I came up with… I mean, to me, living the good life would be to have a home, have a family, be surrounded by my loved ones, always have a full pantry & fridge (to try out all the new recipes I want), and being able to spend all my free time doing things I love… I don’t need a huge mansion or anything, but rather something that would fit our family. And I don’t know if when it came down to it I would even buy a land rover- I would be very happy with a prius. For now, I should just stick with trying to remember to actually buy a lottery ticket.
