Today I had an interview of sorts. It was cute. I was asked five questions
1) What would I do if I won a million dollars?
2) What fictional place would I like to go?
3) What time would I like to go to in a time machine?
4) Who would I like to have dinner with?
5) What age would I like to stay at?
The million dollar one threw me because I don’t usually buy a lotto ticket and I never really put into words what I would do if I came upon a shit load of money in my life. If I won the lottery I would buy a house give some to the local animal shelter and travel for a week or two at a time. But a million, that has limits so I better make it good, right?
So I said I would buy an apartment in Paris and write poetry and travel Europe.
I also have a saying that it doesn’t matter, the money will come if it’s really meant to be, so why don’t I drop everything and do it, go to Paris (or England as my French is marde) and see Europe and write poetry about it.
The truth is I tried to do it post university, and I tried to teach English overseas, both endeavours fell through. SO I got two cats a job and a singing teacher.
SO the opportunity and will is there to try again sometime but I made other choices in life that I have to respect.
One of the questions I wasn’t asked was. What would I redo In my life? Answer: I wouldn’t give up on music, the two times, I did.
I would have tried to take it in university and not cared if I was told I wasn’t good enough, I would have tried anyway, and when I moved home I wouldn’t have stopped singing for 9 years and lost what little voice I had. So if you’re standing at a cross roads think what would I do if I had all the talent? What would I do if I had a million dollars?
just go for it.
