What I would realistically do with $1,000,000

We all are asked all the time what we would do with a million dollars, right? Instantaneously, thoughts of grand vacations and luxury cars fill our minds. And lots and lots of candy. Well, I was thinking about and thought, "How far would $1,000,000 actually get me and my 'dreams'?" Here's how I'd break it down (realistically):

- Sell LaFawnduh the Honda = + $2,500
- Buy Texas the Lexus = - $35,065
- Pay for my own school/rent = - $15,000
- Complete the travel section of my bucket list = - $4,000

And that's pretty much it. I'm left with $948,435. Of course, tithing is paid had I received the money cleanly, so that brings it to $848,435.

What to do, what to do.

Meh, probably I'd invest a lot of the rest. Or start a fur-trading business.

Also, that lots and lots of candy idea doesn't sound so bad either.

You don't know what to do with $848,435?

Me neither. I would pay off my school loans and then buy a house and then buy an office. That's all I can think of.

Actually, that will probably use up all of that money.

I would pay back my loans, pay Mark's loans, pay for vet school, buy better health insurance, buy a house, new computer, a new bed, new couches, a piano... man. Give me the money. I'll also buy a really nice guest bed so you can come and sleep in it!
