The first thing I'd do after winning the lottery is... stay put. Fix up my house. I would hire professionals to replace all the carpet with other floorings, re-shingle the roof, move the thermostat to a better location, turn the back porch into another room, cut into the hill for plant tiers. There's no telling what amount I would win. But if it was millions, I would continue living in this house or one similar to it. I could put my money in the bank and contiinue paying bills without sacrificing groceries or maintaninac or some other thing because we're always struggleing.
I'd like to annonomously donate genrous amounts to the local libraries, schools and local fire departments. I could bring family members up for a visit, rent a bigger car to fit all of us. Maybe buy another house where they could stay. But overall, I wouldn't be changing my lifestyale. I would not be moving into a bigger and fancier house just because I can afford it. I would like to live struggle free for a while. (I guess I kind of answered this in the last fill-in-the-blank post)
I can't stand when I forget to set my alarm and miss out on something because my mind doesn’t work as well as it used to.
I really need to… gain a better understanding for critical thinking and how moral values and argumentative connect. My critical thinking class has been quite a challenge - which is good. I just feel so overwhelmed right now.
One goal I want to accomplish in my lifetime is... spend time with my entire family at Disneyland.
I learned how to swim when I was….when I was a youth. I had learned to swim at Deseret Gym - which used to be where the Conference Center is now. See here.
Something I remember from my first job... the front page of “the Green Sheet” was an ugly shade of green. It was later cleaned up to a totally white paper with the flag of the paper printed in a brighter more inviting green. It was a community paper that may not exist anymore.
I’d like to have the voice of... Olivia Newton-John when I sing – even Elton John’s voice would sound better than my own.
I would love to invent…air conditioned underwear.
My favorite beverage is water really. Other than pure and natural, I love evil Mountain Dew and knock offs.
If I could bring a famous musician back to life, it would be... Daniel Balavoine. I believe that's his name. Corey had a recording of many of his songs. I don't know French well enough to know what he is singing, but I do like the music.
If I was stranded on a deserted island and could only eat one food, it would be... Fettuccine Alfredo. May get tired of it if it was the only thing I could eat day after day, but I'd certainly be willing to give it a try.
I don't know that there's any one thing in which I could devote hours and hours, not at once anyway. I get bored doing the same thing for more than two hours at a time - even the things I enjoy like some word puzzles, organizing photos and blogging.
