Save as much as possible for retirement and put some of that money toward my education. I definitely want to travel and experience new and intetsting things more frequently if I had that amount of money. Just the really important stuff matters most to. I don't want to accumulate more shit I don't really need and don't really have the actual space for.
And possibly I will do the best I could to help those significantly less fortunate than I am, such as the homeless and/or the disabled.
Someone has thought a lot about this LoL - I am boring, I would put in the bank at a good interest rate and think about it - I would love a luxury cabin in the mountains but probably need more than a million.
A house, my dream car (Tesla Model S with everything), every video game I've ever wanted, a bunch of books, and the rest I would invest in real estate by buying foreclosed homes, fixing them up if they need it, and selling them.
I'd invest it until that $1 mil turned into many billions. Then I'd take those many billions and by some of the missing suitcase Russian nuclear arms floating around out there. Then I'd fucking nuke this fucking planet into oblivion. 💀☠⚰
I would put 700,000 in a savings account for who knows what. Emergencies, future kids college funds, my own college funds lol. Then I'd buy a house with what was left. Nothing too large, just something modest with a nice kitchen and a big backyard. :) Ahh now I'm wistful.
Pay off mine and my two younger sister's education, Finish paying for my parents' house, Laser hair removal everywhere, Family trip to another country, friend/cousin trip to another country, Home expenses Donate to Scleroderma research, organ donor awareness.
