I'm not one to boast so don't take it that way, I'm just an extremely wasteful and want to use this best as I can. Next April, as said in the title, I get ~17k left to me from a trust which I can finally open. You'll probably see me make this same thread next year but I atleast need an idea of what I'm getting. I could either spend all of it and live everyday in materialistic bliss or I could invest it, I'm open to both Ideas. The first thing I must get is my grow set up. I was going to have a 1000HPS system for most likely a SOG room. I've only heard good things about LEDs but haven't looked into them too much yet, I plan on making 3-5 individual cabinet setups as well. Each cabit will be home to a different style genetic, example: My 100% indicas, then my hybrids working down to my 100% Sativa Landraces. In all I hope to spend 3,000 to 5,000 on my op. Second I need a car, but theres no sense in looking for that now. I plan to spend 3k-4k on this. That brings me down to ~10k and for fun time. New computer, either my build or another Alienware PS3+games (1k?) Dont tell me to get a 360, I don't need one with a top notch comp Wii+games (500?) New (i?)Phone HD TV (Who knows how much this will be then. So long it's 30"+ and 1080p idc) Computer will be 3k-4k (5k if I get alienware), for my gaming fix, which I must tell you I'm a gaming junky. This will leave me a couple grand in the bank/to live off if I must. I might throw one vacation in there but thats risky. It sounds so stupid to spend that much money, what will most likely be in a couple days, except for what I'm saving. But as long as I have a roof over my head and my grow op I'll be content, but the only thing that gets me wanting is video games, so with those three things I don't think I could be more happy, I could finally be content. No longer will I see Bioshock, CoD4 or Assassin's Creed and want to cry, not only that but I would stick my face into assorted jars of heavily heavy hitting strains. Plus I'd have a car, which I've never had. I've never had any of this kind shit, most people think its a waste, god, my parents want to kill me but theres not a day I wouldn't take this granted, it's just everything that makes me happy that I can finally have in one chunk. THE most imporntant thing to realize though is now I never have money. Almost everything I have goes too weed. (Reasonably of course, not litteraly everything) With my grow I will no longer need to buy weed. Everything I have can now be saved PLUS the setup itself is an 'investment'. Most of my family says spend it on college. I plan to get a student loan for that though.
