I would buy the rights and make live action movies of RA Salvatore Books. I would likely start with “The Dark Elf Trilogy.” Only problem is that a Million bucks wouldn’t cover the cost of even one of those movies.
I would really never buy a house(ok. ok. maybe a very small one) or a luxury car or something like that ; because I really think they are unnecessary responsibility.
I would lay on the bed , and enjoy the fact of being financially secure (at least , this is valid for so many countries) for a while first ; That would be really fun wouldn’t it .?
Then, seize the opportunity of traveling the world ; to see is to live !
I would buy Orman Clark`s Themeforest Account.
I think your friend was right .. the first thing i`l do is panic. The next cuple of months i would chill and think what to do with them but eventually spend them for a modest house & car, traveling and still remain with something left. Maybe investing into an online solution like ebay.
I would go for a year around the world with my wife, then i’ll start a design agency
I would buy a flying saucer so I can hover silently above other people houses.
It would change my life a lot but… I don’t want to change myself… Would be nice to win 20k – 50k just for new instruments, music hardware or software …
