    Chuffed

    Friday the 13th's supposed to be unlucky but not for me that's the day i came up on the euromillions lottery, £107 million jackpot up for grabs and i won the grand total of £5 True it might not quite be enough to retire on but it's a win all the same.

    Hershey's Reeses Cups Scratch Off

    i hardly ever buy lotto tickets but 3/2011 i bought 2 hersheys reeses cups scratch offs at 5 bucks each. On my first ticket i won 20 bucks, then when i scratched the 2nd i won 100...no 500...no 1000 bucks! It was the most exciting feeling ever other than the day my son was born.

    Putting My Spirit Into My Creations

    I am unsure about posting my story here.  I believe that there is more to life than having what you want most and having it fall apart at the seams.  I have been blessed with enough life now, to know how I feel when something happens instead of focusing on everyone else's...

    I am a Christian. I believe in Jesus Christ.

    I am not the type to think instantly coming into more money or material things is a lottery or jackpot. I am the type to think that when someone loves me truly, that I won the jackpot or the lottery. Love is such a fantastic feeling, be it platonic or romantic, self or agape...

    Well it wasn't the retirement-worthy grand prize

    but I did manage to win $100. Thats more than what most people win on these scratch tickets right? Granted if I really did win big I don't know what I would do. Probably quit my job in the most unsavory way possible Only have one more question.. Where the strippers at?
