If I Win The Lottery

11 things you could do with $1.3 billion.

If I Win The Lottery

Can you imagine having $1.3 billion burning a whole in your pocket? Say its your 18th birthday, you buy your first lotto ticket and, Happy Birthday, you win! The average person lives to be 82 years old, so that means you, as an 18-year-old, have 64 years left to live. Your daily budget for the rest of your life would be $55,650 dollars a day—just let that sink in. You can spend $38.65 every minute for the rest of your life.

You could be one of the 1,645 billionaires in the world, and these billionaires are not slacking off in the purchases. One billionaire carved his name into the earth on his private island so it would be visible from the moon, another got a hair cut worth 15,000 British Pounds or $21,776 in the U.S., and the list goes on. So, what bizarre way will you spend your money to let the world know you are a billionaire? The possibilities are endless, but here are 10 ideas to help you brainstorm.

1. Mail $5.38 to every individual in the world

And just about perfectly split the $1.3 billion with the roughly 7 billion people in the world.

2. Hire someone to create a new continent in the middle of the Pacific Ocean in the shape of your face


3.Create a real life money tree.

4. Buy a dog. Buy a hover board.

Teach the dog to ride the hover board…scratch that…hire someone to teach the dog to ride the hover board.

5. Buy enough snow machines to cover Iceland in snow and enough heaters to melt all the snow in Greenland

Put an end to the world confusion.

6. Buy all the Bitcoins in the world.

7. Solve the E. coli problem at Chipotle.

8. Create a Snapchat filter for yourself that anyone within a mile radius of you can use.

9. Take a road trip to all 35,000 McDonald's in America.

10. Buy a toilet made of solid gold so you can go to bathroom in style.

11. Buy another lottery ticket.

Why not?

If you are lucky enough to have that golden ticket, just remember, no matter how great it may seem to be a billionaire, money can't buy you everything.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
