If I Was A Millionaire

                “If I had a million dollars, if I had a million dollars…I would-” ever heard of that song? If not you should probably search it up on YouTube. So I’m going to explain what I would do if I had a million dollars, will you at some point? This is another perfect opportunity to decide whether I’m smart, or a really big idiot.

                Well first I would buy about 10 thousand lotto 649 tickets to get myself some more. Usually, from what I’ve seen, the jackpot is in the 20 millions. Using about 20 million more could be a real help out. In fact maybe at some point I could keep buying more lotto tickets to try and earn more. When you have 1 million dollars losing about 20 thousand doesn’t always seem so bad. I would love to spend my money wisely, and in a way, you have to admit it is kind of smart of you to try and win a lottery for more money (Okay, maybe it isn't). I don’t usually support gambling, but when it comes to lotteries, you can win a good chunk of money

                I would buy myself a nice 300 thousand dollar house to live in. Enough room to start a family, get in the necessities of a house (I’m talking furniture, appliances, and you can’t forget the electronics.) I would prefer a house rather than an apartment. Apartments are not big enough to support a family, and when you want to fit a bunch of things in there, it won’t work out. If I want to throw parties (you’ll see later), a small apartment just won’t do. I would hire a maid because like any other regular person, I do not like to clean. I also expect to have a pool and a hot tub in my back yard. Those are absolute necessities for my house.

                I would make myself known throughout the world, and try to get myself some meetings with famous people, like my friend. He has met Drake the rapper and Erik Karlson from the Ottawa Senators (for those of you who don’t know where he comes from and what makes him so famous.) Maybe I would get to meet Bill Gates and Eminem. I’m jealous of him for being able to meet a couple of famous people.

                I would definitely buy myself a phone, an iPhone. The one thing I’ve wanted most so far in my life, is a phone. A phone with a nice unlimited calling and texting plan (You can find that at Mobilicity.) You see, okay maybe you don’t see, my parents to have gotten the money to buy my sister a phone, so I have to wait until university to get a phone. So I have to stick with my iPod touch’s calling/texting only with internet kind of plan (yes it is free, except for textplus free calls, you have to buy minutes. I got text plus free calls, and just textplus because FaceTime and iMessage only work with people who have iPods, it doesn’t work with regular phones.

                I would get a dog and pamper him/her to the most I could, such as hiring a personal dog walker, someone to clean, feed, and give him/her water. I would take him to the best places for dogs to get massages. And I would hire a trainer (I honestly don’t mean to sound lazy.) The kind of dog I would like though is a husky. I think huskies are smart, and they look extremely nice. Maybe if he is good enough I can enter him in one of those dog competitions. I wouldn’t force him to wear clothes because I’ve tried it on my dog, and he does not like to wear clothing. I love dogs and I love cats, but I would take the dog for sure. Although the dog I have now doesn’t love me, I still love him. He loves to see my sister instead (I know what you mean, a dog is supposed to be a man’s best friend, and he is mine, but am I his?.)

                I would love to donate to charity; giving 50 thousand couldn’t hurt right? It’s going towards the right cause so I have no problem spending a good chunk of money to kids/people in general who need help. Perhaps I could own a charity, create a fundraiser of my own at my mansion. I can hold a party (with security so no one can steal something) for everyone who pays 5 dollars entry fee. I could go and give that to people who really need help getting an education, or those who can’t afford medical care. The world isn’t only about one person, it’s about everyone and everyone should be able to lead a nice normal life. I encourage everyone to spare some money to charities, it is for the right reason and you could honestly help someone a lot.

                 I would start to go on vacations a lot more frequently. I would most likely go to my favourite vacation spot, which is Mexico. For the first time in my life I would take a first class trip to Mexico and stay at the one series of resorts I trust. I suggest if you haven’t used them go to the Palace Resorts. Vacations fill up a lot of my life, I love paradise, and I go there yearly. My family already has our vacation plans already for the next few years. Every anniversary either only my parents go, or I go as well, and at winter break (this year Christmas and New Year’s) we are going as a family with my sister. If I had a million dollars I would make that a lot more frequent.

                So this is what I would do if I had a million dollars, you can do quite a bit of things with it. But if you have a million dollars be careful because you could be targeted. That is why you hire the bodyguards. I think that I would spend a million dollars wisely in a way, but I think I can be a bit careless with the money I have. Girls be sure not to go on a shopping spree, men try not to spend a lot of it on electronics and suits to make you look nice. With everyone there is always something that is irresistible, so be careful on how you spend your money
