A Million Dollars

Today I was reading an interview with one of the teams that was recently lost a show I like to watch called The Amazing Race. The prize for this show is $1,000,000 and the contestants were asked what they would do with the million dollars if they won. I was thinking about what I would do with a million dollars, and came up with this list:

1. Donate to or start a charity. I would love to go to a place like Africa and help build homes there. Or, I would go back to Russia to a tiny hospital we visited, and help them buy the new equipment and fix up the rooms that need fixing. I would probably do all three!

2. I would buy my mom all the yarn she wants, buy my dad all the photography things he wants, buy Alex all the Legos he wants, and buy Owen all the little doggy bones he wants.

3. I would help our friend who is battling cancer.

4. Help anyone we know is struggling, in any way I can.

5. I would help a animal shelter.

6. I would replace the furniture in my room.

7. I would get a new iPod. (Mine is dying a slow death :( )

8. I would get a book case to put my books and CD's in.

9. I would get more books and CD's.

10. Buy tickets for Sage and I to go to an Owl City show. (Our favorite band!)

11. Put aside enough for the car I want and a little extra to fix it if it breaks. ( I want a sky blue VW bug with white interior and a sweet sound system. )

I can think of a few other small things like a good jacket and some new shoes, but that's it. I'd actually much rather only save a little for my self, and use the rest on other people, because I love to see other people happy!


  1. Aw, thanks! I'll just wait until you get on Amazing Race then...When Adam is old and gray...

    1) I would buy the Nikon D3100
    2) I would buy my mom all the home-improvement stuff she want, my dad a new bike or two, and my sister a horse.
    3)I would buy Owl City tickets
    4) I would get the best rockin' awesome basketball shoes [and awesome new converse - 100 pairs. or so.]
    5)Buy Jake, my cousin, all the soccer stuff he wants
    6) Take my friends (BB, of course, is top of the list) on a vacation. :D

  2. Haha! It's only 4 more years until I'm old enough to go on, so he'll be around 30ish, I'm guessing. And if we went on vacation, we'd need to go to Hawaii, and snorkel! =D
