About Me

Some of you know me from my old blog "Moving to Morocco" where I wrote about meeting my husband and, you guessed it, moving to Morocco. Well, we're back now, and I want to write about other things (but yes, we're still happily married). There's no real subject to this blog. I just want to write. If you have a subject you'd like my opinion on, just let me know. I also plan on doing advice posts. If you have something you'd like an outside opinion on, e-mail me anonymously at nicegirlatl@hotmail.com! Thanks for reading!

I wanna be a billionaire so fricken bad

Have you heard this song? I actually cannot stand it, but it did give me inspiration for a blog post! So thanks annoying guy on the radio.

I assume I am like pretty much every other person when I say I've often thought of what I'd do if I won the lottery. Just an everyday working class woman getting 100 million dollars (or more!). Would I go out and buy an 8 million dollar house, would I get a Ferrari?  Actually, I can't know for sure what I'd do, but these big ticket items really don't interest me at all. I mean yeah, who wouldn't love to live in a grand mansion, or drive a car that can go 0 to 100 in a nanosecond? I would! But I don't think my frugality would leave me if I won an absurd amount of money. I probably would buy a bigger house in a gated community and have a swimming pool in my back yard. I'd more than likely buy new cars for my husband and myself, maybe some clothes shopping, and new furniture. I would definitely travel the world, set up trusts for my kids, and help out some family and friends. Ultimately though, I'd like to think I'd spend the majority of that money doing good in the world.

Feeding hungry children, getting medical care for those in need, sheltering the homeless, educating the illiterate, cancer research, etc. These are the things I think I would spend my money on. I think I would have immense guilt if I drove a car that cost more than some peoples homes, or lived in a house that cost more than an average person would make in a lifetime. These things are unnecessary. Yes you can have some nicer things that you normally would, but why would you spend $20,000 a night on a penthouse hotel suite? Does a $500 a night suite suck that bad? lol.  I'm just saying I think I wouldn't live my life like a "millionaire" I'd live it more like a person with a six figure income. Nice, but not outlandish.

What would you do if you won a $100 million lottery prize??

  1. We often think about what life would be like if we won the lottery. It must be something poor people think about alot...hehehe :) I would not want my life to change much just be able to afford the things I can't now. Have a big house but not to big. Having security, comfort and not worrying about money would be the best part of it all. Wish me luck on my next Lottery Ticket.. :)
