  • I've just won a million in the lottery. My endorphins are running around my entire body. The possibilities! First, I'm going to buy a property back at home. I'm going to furnish it and decorate it in a minimalistic way. Just how I like it. I'm going to travel around the world. I'm going to visit Bulgaria, Budapest, China, Nepal, Japan, Indonesia, Australia, India, South Africa, Costa Rica, Buenos Aires, USA, Mexico, Canada, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Bordeaux, Florence, Venice and wherever else I fancy going afterwards. I'm buying a new car. An electric one with all the commodities. I'm having a chef cooking me healthy meals who'll clean my house and look after my garden. I'm buying my sister a gorgeous house for her, her partner and her cats. I'm hiring someone to help and look after my parents and their flat. I'm asking my older sister what she needs and what she wants for her and her daughter. Then I'll ask three of my closest friends what can I give them and of course they will go to some of my trips with me. Then I'll put something towards alleviating hunger, thirst, poverty. I'll pay something towards helping older people. I'll buy then with the rest properties and accounts so I can leave from their profits. I'll buy clothes. I'll do what I want when I want. Oh, this is heaven! Now, I can pay somebody to teach me how to make music, how to play the bass guitar, the drums and sing. I'll record my own songs. I'll write the music and lyrics. I'll help other people to create their own music, literature, art, architecture. I'll help people who can't access the tools for it. I'll help people to own their own properties. I'll help people to own their own land. I'll help people to read and watch the things they want to learn on. I can't wait to start spending that money!
