Friday Five Millionaire


This weeks Friday Five has to do with all the game shows that have taken over the airways since the writers strike has taken away real tv. You remember that, Grey's Anatomy, House, Bones etc.
 
Well, our task is to choose the five things that we would do if a million dollars suddenly showed up in our bank account.

1. I'd call the bank to report the mistake-just kidding- Ok I really did win it on "1 VS 100" my personal favorite of this lot.

2. I'd buy a place to live for my me and my partner that's bigger than 500 sq. ft.this used to be called a studio apartment but is now called a "junior one"apartment inflation! Actually that should about cover the down payment in NYC, and we'd be left with a large mortgage. (A junior one in my building is selling for just under $600,000. and I want 2 bedrooms, is this too much to ask?)

3. OK,  I'm giving myself a downstate living allowance (something the state actually gives me.) Let's make it $2,000,000. I'd also quit my  job and go into private practice as a therapist.

4. I'd be much more generous to the non-profits and charities that I now support on a much more modest level.

5. Of course I'd put some in my retirement fund, which is still too slim.

2 BR is not too much to ask! How do ministers live in NYC??? Churches put them up in the basement?

Those are great dreams!

Are you planning to go into private practice anyway? Could you do it PT?

When I used to work as a substance abuse counselor, I knew several people who did that until there practices grew enough to quit their jobs.

NYC has some of the smallest "living" spaces I have every seen....having two bedrooms is not too much to ask....

Hope you are able to be in private practice some day - it can be a great way to work....

Yes, housing is a bit spendy in NYC. Although what a GREAT city you live in! (We'll be back again -- and next time coffee will happen!)
