First of all, let me just say that I hate the school computers with a burning passion. My last post, “My Proudest Moment” was in fact not about my proudest moment. It was a perfect copy of my previous “Piercings and Tattoos” post. What the actual heck Hockinson High. I had written a very heart felt post about my soccer team that I coached these past two years. It was about how I couldn’t pick just one “proudest moment” because I was proud of them in every game they played. But, no one will ever get to read it because I guess that computer liked the previous post so much, that it wanted to post it again. So thank you, upstairs computer lab, for making me look like an idiot.
Now, onward an upward.
Many people fantasize about winning the lottery and buying a big house and fancy cars and expensive things just because they can. I don’t. When I even entertain the idea of winning the lottery, I don’t think about doing any of those things. I am in fact, very practical about how I would want to spend the money.
The first thing I would do is pay for college. So many people are coming out of college with a great degree, but they are completely buried in debt. I don’t want that to be me. So much of my stress would be taken off if I didn’t have to worry about paying for college anymore.
Also, I would get the degree that I wanted, even if it wasn’t the highest paying job. Assuming I would never actually have to work for the rest of my life, I would need something to keep me busy. Since it wouldn’t have to support me or a family, why not do something that I love, but make less money?
After college I would buy a respectable, but not giant, house. Something just big enough that a family could grow into. Lets face it. I’m the one that has to clean it. No giant house for this girl!
As for cars, nothing too special. Just something reliable and fuel efficient. Something that a middle class to upper middle class family would buy.
I would buy nice things, but not a lot, and I would still shop for bargains. I love the feeling of getting a good deal and I don’t think that will ever go away.
If I won the lottery, I really wouldn’t do much. I would live a modest life just like any other individual. Not having to worry about money at all would be satisfying enough for me. I would try to lead a generous and fulfilling life, giving back just like it was given to me. I don’t need fancy, extravagant things. All I really need are people around me that love me, and I truly believe that’s all anyone needs.
Oh, and I would buy my mom a Cadillac CTS because I promised I would when I was 13.
