Dream A Little…

Tonight, the Mega Millions lottery jackpot is at $355 Million dollars. Even with the cash payout option, the winning jackpot is still $220-something million (before taxes of course).  That’s a lot of money.  During an afternoon walk with my two coworkers (who are also good friends), the conversation turned to discussion of the lottery and what to do with all that money.  Dreams are a good thing to indulge in every now and then.  Here’s some of mine.

Beyond taking care of my friends and family, I’d buy things like:


A Large Arts and Craft Style House
A Beach House for Relaxing
Of course, I'd need a car. An Aston Martin V12 Vantage would be nice.
Lots and lots of books - old and new. Gotta have something to do...
I'd do lots of traveling, starting with Prague...

And of course, I’d spend lots of money on challenging my mind – classes in every possible subject that interests me.  I’d give lots of money to places and organizations that are important to me, places like the Monterey Bay Aquarium and various foundations dedicated to arts and music.

These are the big dreams. In reality, if I were to win an extremely large amount of money I probably wouldn’t buy huge extravagant things displaying the wealth.  While I’d be likely to indulge in some things, (a baby grand piano anyone?) the truth is that I really just want to pay off my school loans and purchase a home outright.  But hey, it’s always fun to dream. What would you do with obscene amounts of money?


Meghan is an environmental scientist by trade but an artist at heart. She loves all things geeky/nerdy and is frequently found with less geeky friends rolling their eyes at her. She often spouts all kinds of pop culture trivia and nonsense stemming from her avid love of movies, music, art, and books. If not curled up with a book (she reads at least one a week) or comic, she can be found painting with something on a screen to distract her. She wishes she was as cool as Veronica Mars or as Kate Daniels. Besides blogging about comics here you can also find her exploring around twitter, instagram, tumblr, pinterest, goodreads, and trying to keep up appearances on her own blog.
