March 26, 2014


A lot of my friends don't know this, but I am a weekly and most often bi-weekly Mega Millions playing junkie. I figure, if someone is going to win the lottery each week, it might as well be me.

I know this goes against everything I blog about, that money doesn't buy happiness, and I still 100% support this through and through. But you know what money can buy - time! And that my friend, is what I want most. I want more time with friends and family, more time to travel, more time to learn / grow, more time to enjoy the outdoors, more time with Ken and Peugeot and more time for VW adventures. Each time I play the lottery, I think to myself; this could be my ticket out. Then again, maybe that is my desperate cry that I need a new job.

So, what would I do if I won the lottery? I would give at least half to my family, close friends and to every animal organization out there. Then I would buy a small A-Frame house in the mountains and spend my days hiking in the mountains, taking photographs, starting a small farm and /or organic farm, blogging, and still living the most simple life imaginable. I would just have the time and financial comfort to support my simple lifestyle. Oh, and I would have my dreadlocks, of course!

Tell me - what would you do if you won the lottery? I am assuming it is much more luxurious than my dreams, but I would still love to hear about it.

The bad news is, I did not win last night. The good news is, there will be another lottery drawing this Friday, and someone has to win it. Why not me?
