Answer Is...

For those of you who have seen Office Space you should know where I'm going with this, for those of you who haven't - shame on you. The purpose of this blog is to focus on your dreams and ambitions. Answer the question "What would you do if you had a million dollars and didn't have to work?"

Well, my initial answer to this question was similar to the movie…I would do nothing. But then I got to thinking, and realized this is a really hard question. I think the first thing on my list would be travel. I would go back to Florence, visit my family who I’ve never met in Norway, and probably hit up a few other places like Austria, France, and Greece. Maybe I would even buy a villa on the coast of Italy or the Greek Islands and chill out there for a year or two. I love the idea of living abroad and experiencing a completely different lifestyle than the United States.
I also wouldn’t mind working at an island resort somewhere in exchange for room and board. I can picture myself living further south and having lots of little jobs instead of just one career. I am the master of meaningless things…decorating cakes, wrapping gifts, tearing apart movies and TV shows, telling funny stories, re-arranging furniture, coming up with new recipes, etc. Sometimes I think about just starting to write a book about all the funny things I think about and how life constantly surprises me.
I want to travel, and I want to see things, and I want to take risks and be spontaneous while I still can.
As an after-thought, I want to be on a reality show…or Jeopardy.

This week revealed something very important...your interest in travel. Perhaps there's a goal there waiting to be explored. One that will put all that angst to rest-- or at least put it on the top shelve until you get back.

I'm liking this resort idea. I say we pool our millions and buy our own island.

Maybe you should look into international Public affairs since you want to travel. Maybe you could write for a travel magazine or look into jobs for the travel channel. Since life always suprises you, I think you'd be great at explaining detailed meals and customs in other parts of the world. Just a thought since this blog idea was so thought provoking in the first place! :)
