Ok, Do you ever think about winning the lottery? duh! It will be so much fun having money for everything what you want. Lately I was thinking what I would do with a few millions. I would definitely go on vacation and I would buy a tickets for my family and friends for sure also I would spoil myself, my mama and grandma in real spa once in a while I would go with my godson to Disneyland, I would buy a car and apartment, share money with the family, I would do something for charity and invest rest of it in something future-proof.
Sounds fun but do not be worry nobody has won the lottery around here so I'm still poor student living with parents in small apartment. At least I'm happy, healthy and I have everything what I need most and the biggest pleasure in my life is making those faces from above every time when someone asks me 'Do I have money for something?' or 'Do I some save money already?' or 'Do I think about job?' ( creepy I know )
