Something I always ask people when Friday rolls around is what would you do if you won the lottery tonight? I mean, who knows, it could happen, it could not happen. As a writer living in a fantasy world is kind of a given, and a beautiful place to be so why not fantasise about what you would do if money was no longer an option any more?
15. Pay off the mortgage
Living mortgage free isn't something we can do anymore. Unless we have lived our lives and are nearing retirement. How nice would it be to free up the money you spend out each month for property? The freedom it would give would be amazing.
14. Pay off student loan, credit cards, and car finance
If i'm getting rid of the mortgage I may as well get rid of the other debts I have hanging over my head. It's no secret that most people nowadays have them, we just get better at managing them.
13. Buy a couple more property's to rent out
Even if you win big, having a source of income is vital. I'd buy flats and rent them out to people who need cheap accommodation. Adulting is hard.
12. WRITE MY GOD DAMNED NOVELS
Okay maybe this wouldn't be the first thing on my mind but it's definitely something I would do. Being financially able to sit at my deck all day and write might mean I could do 1 novel a year, maybe even two, not 1 novel every two years. I'm working on that though.
11. Help out the family
I love my family and if my lottery win was big enough I would help them out. I might as well share in the glory of it all.
10. Help out people in need.
Real people in need like veterans who are living on the streets - thats stopping if I win big.
9. Build my own house
Houses are nice, but if you don't have one you like you gotta build it. Not sure if I would do this for fun or just because I'd have the money too.
8. Give to charity.
But a proper charity that would actually use my money for good things like operations for people etc. So maybe I'd just offer my services and pay for whats needed.
7. Hire a personal shopper to sort out my style.
I don't know what my style is and having some nice clothes I'm comfortable in which make me look good would be incredible. Money doesn't allow it though.
6. Sit and take the online courses I could never afford and work through them properly.
Speaks for itself I'd say.
5. Pay someone to design my workbooks so they look epic.
Don't get me wrong I do love them but they could look better right?
4. Not feel bad about taking money out of my savings
Self explanatory, I like to see numbers but I also like things. It's a struggle for me. A frugal money spender - eeep!
3. Go on a cruise
I feel this will always be out of reach for me because it's so expensive. Unless I become an internet sensation, a best-selling author, and have movies made then I'm sticking with trips to the Canary's. A lottery win would mean me, and my family, and special friends, could enjoy a month long trip on a cruise ship #epic.
2. Move countries
Probably to New Zealand or Australia but we shall see. Need to scope them out first. (This may happen with or without a lottery win, would just make it easier).
1. Travel the world.
Something I have always wanted to do is see the world, but it's no secret that I am super stuck up and staying in a place with no first world lavatories is just not my thing. I can't do it, I wasn't raised that way.
This was actually a lot harder than it looks. I sound so shallow with some of them! What would you do if you won the lottery? Let me know in the comments.
