If you had a billion US dollars, how would you spend it?

I’d disappear.

With this much money, I could afford to give everyone I love what they want so that they, too, can live a life without worry. If they wanted to, I’d help them disappear, as well.

I’ve never been, but I imagine I’d be okay living in a castle in the south of France. It should have enough space for me to build anything I’d want. I’d also need some land – an expanse.

My life would be led with whimsy.

Eventually, I’d want to start doing something for other people. There’s a video of Tupac that keeps popping up on my TikTok For You Page. I’m it, he talks about how it’s completely and entirely unfair for the uber-wealthy to have so much and for others to have next to nothing. He died before the extravagance that we are witness to today. I tend to agree with him.

Giving away money is probably very easy. Doing something valuable with that same money is probably quite difficult. It’s likely that I’d spend the rest of my life chasing the dream of doing better for others.

More than anything, however, I want the freedom. I want my time to be completely divorced from any financial pursuits. I’d love my life as if I were free.
