What Would You Do If You Won The Lottery??

A member bought me a Mega Millions lottery ticket for last night's drawing.

I'll go ahead and ruin the surprise...

I didn't win.

But while heading to put the ticket in my bag, another member saw it and asked me...

"What are you going to do if you win?"

This was my response...

- "If I don't win, I'll be here for classes tomorrow just like normal."
- "If I do win, I'll be here for classes tomorrow just like normal."

And that's the truth!  Sure, I'd pay off loans, family debt, and set myself up with a financial planner, but that's about it.  I love what I do and if I didn't have this job, I'd be doing it as a hobby.  So while I might very well get a few new things (shoes, front fender for my car, and some more Xmas presents for the fam), I would hope that I'd be the same person I've become. 


1.  What would you do if you won the lottery (aka, you won multiple million dollars)?
I'd pay off my student loans, my car loan, pay off some family debt, and call up a good financial friend!  Ok, I'd probably order every pair of Pearl Izumi Streak II shoes I could find in my size.  Gotta' splurge on ONE THING!

2.  Would you do anything different at your current job if you no longer required the paycheck it provided?
No.  While my job is at it's very basic core a means to survive (purchase food, shelter, and warmth), it is also something I love to do and I would never give that up!
