If I had a million dollars...

This week's assignment, courtesy of Michael Michael "The Motorcycle" Wolenski, is "What would you do if you had a million dollars?" ( Or...One Millllion Dollarss as Dr. Evil would say.) A million dollars?? It's hard to think what I would do with 10 dollars sometimes being a college student! Nonetheless, If I had a million dollars, I would pay off all my debts, including my parents payments on their house and vehicles. I would then give $10,000 to the Big Brother Big Sisters Orginization. I was a big brother for a couple years and it was not only a great experience for myself, but when I see my "little brother" roaming around he stops me and tells me how much of a difference I made for him when he didn't have much. If I could make that feeling by not giving any money, I could probably make a big difference with ten grand. I'd then put the rest of the money into a bank account and pick up the interest on it until I was ready to move and buy a home, and new vehicle. By then, the interest could pay for the car by itself...The reason I wouldn't retire or do anything out of the ordinary is because I feel that my life is complete with what I have in it, I've worked hard, climbed so many ladders in my years, that I feel I'd be cheating myself or selling myself short if I just call it quits at 22. I like the chase, the excitement of will I meet the deadline every week, that keeps me going!! Giving that up would be like giving up a big part of myself, and I wouldn't be able to do that! So what would you do with a million bucks? Until next time, I'm DJ Yokley...

I like how you picked an organization that is out of the ordinary to give money to. Usually people say that they would give money to breast cancer research or to find a cure for AIDS. Other organizations need help too. =)
