Well I can assure you that if I find myself in a future situation where I've got more money than I know what to do with I'll be making it happen.
All expenses paid, booze and soft drugs if you're into that sort of thing, place to sleep, gift bag on your way out.
When I sat down and did the tallies a while back I realised that most of my millionaire fantasies are very other people-centric.
I want this get together.
I'd start businesses and hire coworkers from my life whom I feel deserve to be treated and paid well instead of shat on by companies, and they'd also be making me money but that's not the real goal if I'm loaded to the tits already.
Everyone in my immediate family would be getting a home and their debts wiped away, nieces and nephews would be set up for college (or a down payment on their own house if they don't do post secondary), that sort of stuff.
I am very aware of the struggle and drudgery of life in general and feel the need to alleviate as much of that weight from the people in my life wherever I can.
Tonnes of money would make that a very feasible achievement.
I used to think the same. Then..... I start to miss humans.
49% Extrovert, 51% Introvert. I tend to jump between the two.
I still like some people, and enjoy socialising with them, or anyone really.
My social battery just starts draining as soon as I leave the house and at any given point in my day it suddenly dies. Regardless of the social situation my brain is just done handling the mental gymnastics and does this:
Other than wearing a mask everywhere and sanitising groceries my general habits haven't changed all that much.
Which carries over to my hobbies.
They're mostly indoors and entirely solitary ventures, which is tailor made for global viral pandemic times.
I play video games, read, write, cook, can food, fix up my house to make it comfier and safer, do woodworking, hand carve/whittle, garden, hike/camp, forage in my yard, create and sew patches, rug hook, knit/crochet. And the list goes on.
It's kind of nice to have things to do that don't rely heavily on outside sources to function.
My hands shake too much to do any type of drawing or painting. Plus, my art teachers usually didn't like most things that I tried making. Maybe that's only because they never gave me enough time to finish any of the projects they assigned to me. I have thought about building things that have instructions, but I don't have much space to put anything else in my house.
My art teachers didn't like my stuff either.
I didn't fit their preferred style so they wrote me off.
Now I design and digitise logos for my own business and create patches as well.
Teachers aren't always the best gauge for ability or talent.
