I recently came into possession of about $4,000, through means I do not care to discuss on this blog (I did NOT rob a bank, although I have been contemplating doing that for quite a while, and when I do, hopefully I will acquire more than 4k).
Anyway, here are some things I'm thinking about doing with my funds...
Pay off a large portion of my credit card debt. Clearly, this goes against everything my country stands for. Next!
Buy a plane ticket to some exotic location and go on adventures, living off my wits and sheer physical prowess. This is a highly favored option.
Burn it. Granted, if I want to go for the dramatic effect seen here -- and of course I do -- I might have to create a few mock dollar bills to have a large enough pile of money, but I'm really not doing much this weekend so it's fine.
Anyway, I guess what I am saying is this: I have two very strong tendencies within myself. One is to be responsible, secure a relatively comfortable and safe life for myself and hopefully a future family. Two is to forsake all of this middle-class suburban American dream stuff and just go on adventures and live a more authentic life. And coming in a close third is imitating the Joker, as played by Heath Ledger.
