I would want to help others, by donating to charity, for example. _______________, I would also want to use some of the money to buy things for myself. _______________, I would probably decide to give 30% to charity and spend 20% on myself. I would buy a new computer and a large collection of video games. _______________, I would get a new bicycle and an mp3 player with a lot of memory.
After I spent 30% on charity and 20% on myself, I would still have 50% of one million dollars, which is $500,000. That is a lot of money! _______________, I would probably save most of this to help pay for college. _______________, I would not save all of it.
