      First of all, I would give my mom, brother and father ten million each after taxes was deducted, then I'd quit both my part time jobs completely and just become a full time student to finish up my degree.  I would use the rest of the money to buy a new house along with a car.  Nothing too fancy or extravagent, as I wouldn't want anyone to know that I was rich.  Then after all that, I would heavily invest my money into saving bonds, cds, roth ira and various other equities to make my money grow for me.  Don't get me wrong, I would set aside like ten grand to splurge a little bit on movies, video games and whatnot, but that's it.  Then after I get my bachelors, I would take a trip around the world.  A life long dream I've had since I was a child, then after that, I would just live off the interest and become a full time writer. 

      Never telling anyone that I was rich, as I wouldn't want any phony friends around me.  That's one of the reasons why if I did win the lottery, I would straight up lie to the girl that I was dating and tell her I was poor.  However, as things got serious, then I'd tell her the entire truth and how I wanted her to love me for who i am, and not for what i have.  hence, the reason why i lied about my fortune, so i could know for sure.  i know that sounds bad but if you know my luck with girls in real life, then you'd understand.  after all, you can't be too careful.

    Oh, good. It's time for me to win it. All I have to do is get the number. Now, have any of you good guys and girls heard of Joe Silva? He apparently dreamt of the number twice and both times won it.
