Happy Blogtober!

I'm excited to announce I am going to participate in Helene in Between's and The Daily Tay's Blogtober 2014 challenge to blog everyday for the month of October.

I've seen a few in the past but wasn't sure even where to get started with them but when Helen and Tay announced this one last month I knew this was a great place to start. So here we go-

Day 1!

If you won the lottery you'd be...ridiculously excited!

Not sure why, and I'm hoping my family isn't the only one out there- but we kind of discuss this topic often. Along with the fact that you can't win if you don't play- which happens to be my problem. I always say I'm going to get a ticket...

But if I actually won- it would be amazing. In my intricate dreams for if that beautiful day came, first things first would be to receive the lump sum. Then take that money and flee- haha just kidding, but no really.

Actually I would probably take it to a family friend of ours who works in finance. Pay off those dreaded student loans, for myself and all my family members. Then set up some sort of trust of my family too. After that it would be dream houses, apartments and a very very long five-star vacation with all of my favorite people.

Mostly likely I would then try and actually pursue a career in my dream industry with my dream job (read all about it tomorrow!) It wouldn't matter that I would have to start as an intern or mail room. I would just be able to enjoy the career I wanted without worrying about the finances.

Now, I should probably go out and buy that ticket!!

  1. Can't wait to hear what that "dream job" would be. I think Adam and I would start a non-profit animal shelter of some sorts. That would be the dream!


  2. so practical of you! especially about the financial planner- i need to do that!

  3. Loans first, good girl! :) I'm all for a blogger lottery pool! Are you with me? We split the winnings!!! :)

  4. I love how everyone's first answer is "pay off that debt!" We've all got it!

  5. Student loans are evil! Those would be the first to go for me too.


  6. That sounds amazing- my aunt and cousin both have non-profit animal shelters in Indianapolis and love what they do, plus you get to meet some fantastic animals!

  7. lets just say my sister and I have talked about this way too much...

  8. ooh that would be fun! I would definitely be in.. haha!

  9. I'm not sure why anyone would do differently- those student loans are killer! It's all about paying off the debts, investing and then partying like crazy!!

  10. I agree- maybe some long lost relative will appear and get rid of them for me.. or I will win the lottery!
