First, I have been dying to ask this for some time: does anyone understand where I got the name for my feature? The phrase ‘I do what I want’ comes from a popular TV show. This a-hole character says in one hilarious episode. The whole quote is, “Whatever, whatever, I do what I want!”
Okay, enough of that. So with all the hub-bub over the 1.5 billion Powerball this week, I want to ask you girls a question. What would you do if you won the lottery? You know how we all get into those conversations when we buy tickets to the lottery. We can’t help but dream big, right? Even when we know we are not going to win.
Obviously number one is quitting your job. I think this is true for most people, but is there anyone who wouldn’t quit their job? If so, why?
I would then give some to the family members I liked, some friends as well. Gotta share some of the love.
Then I would buy a nice house in the best neighborhood and best area I could find, you know, with guards and a gate. I wouldn’t want to overdue it on the house though because huge houses are way too expensive to keep up. I want to save as much money as possible because there are too many lottery winners out there who have blown through their money in a couple of years because of their stupidity.
After I got some other nice things like a car, electronics, shoes, purses, and all the books I ever wanted, I would start my dream ‘job.’ I’d want to start an animal sanctuary. I’d want to save as many animals as I can and let them live in a place as close to their natural habitat as possible. I’m talking acres and acres of land to build small jungles, forests, and whatever other habitats the animals are use to. I would also want to save as many cats and dogs that are going to be put down. Now, I don’t know how much this would cost and how I would maintain it, or if it’s really possible, but it’s just a dream so I don’t need to know specifics. It’s my dream life. I am all about giving any animal the best life possible.
That’s why I hate myself for not being a vegetarian or vegan. I try, but I always cave. I am working myself up to it by limiting my meat intake more and more.
So, that’s what I would do with my lottery winnings.
