If I won the lottery I would...

| No Comments
There's a lot of crazy going on now that the Mega Millions are up to 640 Million Dollars.  That's like having Uncle Scrooge's Money Bank, right? You could swim in that.

I joined the pool here at work and I'll most likely go and spend 5 or 10 more bucks on tickets of my own just in case.  I wouldn't want to miss out on the biggest jackpot ever. And, hey, every dollar boosts it higher, right?

A lot of people are telling journalists what they would do if they won the jackpot, so I thought what the heck, I can do that too, but here, where it belongs, in my world.

If I won the jackpot, I would take the lump-sum because I wouldn't want to have to will the future payments to my daughter and her cat.  Just give me the money and go away.

The very first thing I would do is pay off my student loans and put half the money away into several trust accounts (gotta fund my daughter's college career, yo).

The second thing I'd do is go find myself a little house on 5 acres of land and buy it, then put up a fence if it didn't have one. Little house meaning 3 bedrooms and an office with a patio or deck.  Nothing huge.  Something manageable.  I wouldn't pay it off right away either but it would be substantially paid down.

I'd buy my daughter and I better vehicles to help reduce our carbon imprint on the earth.  Mother Nature likes that sort of thing.  

After all that is said and done and debts are paid, I'd take 1/3 (yes, ONE THIRD) of the money left and donate it to charities I think are worth it (yes I'd be looking into them beforehand).

Would I quit my job? Most likely.  I'd take classes in things I'm interested in as well, furthering my education into things I love like writing and art and graphic design and photography.  Anything creative would do as long as it makes me smile.  

Yes, I'd help out friends and family but not to the point of breaking my bank.  Helping is one thing... supporting to the point of ruination of oneself is quite another.

Have a great day and good luck to all in the lottery.  Perhaps the odds will ever be in our favor... (gah, I did it again!)
