If I won the lottery, I wouldn’t have a care in the world. Although, by winning it, I obviously mean winning big money. Thousands, if not more. If I won the Power Ball while it was super high, I don’t think I’d know what to do with myself.
First things first: I’d pay off all my debt. My bills, credit cards, and most importantly, my student loans.
After that, I’d take care of the things I really need. Like getting a car, a brand new laptop (the best of the best if I have the money), and getting some lenses for my camera. Maybe just getting a whole new camera, go back to Canon.
I would buy a new bedroom suit, starting with a bed and mattress. But before I’d even do that, I’d get my own place. And before I even get my own place, I’d help my mom get her own place and settle. Once that was all taken care of, I could go spend crazy on buying new things for my OWN place.
I’d travel. I’d take my best friend who’s in Connecticut right now, and we’d go on a trip to Nashville, and then who knows after that? There are so many places I want to visit and see with my own eyes. To feel. I want to travel the world, but the only way to really do that is if you have money.
Chances of me ever hitting the lottery are very low. I don’t even play the Power Ball unless it’s big, and even then I buy one ticket. Every now and then I’ll play a scratch-off, but I hardly ever win. Although, I have been debating putting like $20 in and buying the same $1 ticket. Chances are a lot higher of hitting something that way! I mean, what’s $20 if I did that once a month? There’s at least the chance of me making my money back.
I mentioned in my previous post (here) that I don’t like gambling. And I don’t. But at least the lottery I pay a couple dollars upfront and they don’t come hounding me for money. So it’s a little different from gambling with friends. Especially since the people I know bet $50 at times. No thanks!
What would you do if you ever hit the lottery?
