What would you do if you won ten million dollars? Well, I would do a bunch of things. Some are a little more realistic than others, but hey. This is wishful thinking.
Pay off all my school loans
This would be the very first thing done. I don’t want to live the next decade or however much longer paying school. Nobody does that happily.
Damn straight I would use this opportunity to go back to school and take as many classes as I wanted. With that much money, I would be walking away with three Masters Degrees, no problem.
Have my parents’ houses fixed up
Both houses were built over sixty years ago, and haven’t really been updated. As a matter of fact, Oma’s house has been almost the complete same my entire life. They both need structural and cosmetic work done, and I’m into that kind of stuff, so obviously I would let my parents have houses that they can actually enjoy.
Take a hiatus off of work and a trip through Europe
This is probably my most ultimate dream. I’m the one oddball that prefers European countries over Caribbean Islands, and I would die over an adventure like going all over Europe. I want to visit basically every country over there: England, Ireland, Scotland, France, Germany, Spain, Greece, Italy, Austria, Hungary, the Netherlands, Iceland, Bulgaria, and Romania. Oh, and Russia (yes, I know that’s not considered a part of Europe, but it is a neighbor).
Get a car
My dream car, ever since I was a little girl, has always been an all-black Mustang GT. Sometimes I like it more as a convertible, other times not so much. Don’t ask me why, I’ve just always liked them. But I also loved my dad’s 2015 Chevy Impala, so that’d be my back up choice.
Expand my wardrobe
I always feel like I need clothes, and having the money for it would help me get some. Plus, who doesn’t love getting new clothes? Maybe then I would wear colors other than black, olive, and maroon.
Own a restaurant and bar
I’ve been saying this for years, but one of my dreams were to open a bar by colleges and call it The Library…only to find out it’s already been done. But I would still love to open up a place either in the city or on the island. Why not take the opportunity, right?
Donate money to the Brentwood School District
It would be so messed up if I got a bunch of money and didn’t donate any of it anywhere, and what better place than the school district that I grew up in? I owe a lot to the place that was my home for thirteen years.
…twice. Because those tickets are expensive as hell, and it’s been my dream for over a year. Why are they so much money that only rich and lucky people can see this show? Let me know.
By then, I don’t think I would have much money left, but I would try to save whatever else I possibly could. This way, I could get a place of my own later on, a couple dogs, or whatever else my little heart desires.
