TWQ: What Would You Do?

This week's TWQ (The Weekend Question) asks what you would do if you had complete freedom.

What would you like to do if you didn't have to go to work, or had no family responsibilities, and money wasn't an issue?

My answers are:

I would probably live on a cruise liner, making sure I saw as much of the world as possible. with homes in various parts of the world to drop in on occasionally. I'd also like some paintings, plus a portrait of myself.

Now it's over to you...

I have always said if I was free of the usual constraints and money were no object, then I would buy a farm and give homes to rescue animals.
I would have it as a educational or holiday thing too, running trips for special needs kids.

I even got as far as beginning to design a 'blind garden' for the sight-impaired children.

Ah, one day - one day......

Michele sent me to wax lyrical about my lottery dreams....

This one's easy! I would love to travel around to one historic site after another not only in this country but in others parts of the world.

Amanda said...

I'd also spend all my time traveling. I'd like to have beach houses scattered around the world. I'd also like to attend the F1 races.

Fab said...

Travel to Australia, or India or buy a ship and travel by sea. I'd love that!

I'd travel - to see the wonders of the world that I haven't already seen and I'd do it in a safe, comfortable way. I'd have a house in Greece and one in the Lake District and I'd set up a group of intelligent, trustworthy people and it would be their job to investigate really deserving cases so I can give treats to people who need it (the money's no object. Right?) And I'd have a lovely home
by the sea for orphans and try to match them up with people longing to have a child. All carefully vetted of course but using one's intelligence instead of eternal PC credo.

When can I start?
Michele sends her best.

I'd have a house with land in the country, one on the beach, and I'd travel bunches, but not in the summer, where I'd be luxuriating somewhere in one of my homes :).

I'd take up sailing and kayaking, and become outdoorsy. I might even try to learn to ride horses!

I'd read a heck n crap more than I do, and go to plays, musicals, operas, and other things that cost about $100 a night.

I love these beautiful, generous answers so far. However, I am looking at this question as being more about living a carefree life so I wouldn't load myself up immediately with loads more responsibilities. I think I would buy the best quality camera I felt comfortable with, a quality tape recorder and I would literally travel around the world enjoying meals at the best restaurants. I'd start with the British Isles and work my way east, crisscrossing north and south, photographing and interviewing people. Then I'd work on the Southern Hemisphere. Then I'd put it all in a book and title it "Given The All World."

Get a house in Inman Park and travel alone and with friends, go to school, help my family, get a horse. Oh, and have a campground. I love this question! The world has so much to offer! I want to see everything!

The Mistress of the Dark said...

I would travel around the world taking pictures and collecting beautiful things for my home :)

ummmm... well actually this pretty much IS my life. i worked very hard for many years and saved and now it is time to enjoy, so if i could change anything about my life it would be my health because without that you have nothing else.

since retiring i have had lung cancer, breast cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, you name it, but i go on and enjoy every day i have on this earth to the best of my ability.

i also donate to charities of my choice in the "pay it forward" way whenever possible. i love to send soldiers home for christmas to surprise their mamas! one thing i love best!!! all i ask of them is to someday do something for another soldier when they can.

sooo, to wrap up this very long comment, without your health there is not much else. make changes early in your life...

smiles, bee

The reality is, I'd probably sit around and play computer games all day. My fantasy would either be exploring other worlds or running a harem.

Chris W. said...

I'll just say that I'll travel, of course. That's the biggest thing I can think of. I think most people say this because humans have a natural tendency to explore. We get bored too easily.

Really thinking about an alternative, I'd own a recording studio, with a warehouse-sized building full of instruments and equipment. I'd just jam all day long!

Jaime said...

Travel for a while, and then settle down in my dream location/house and do work that I enjoy, because I enjoy it, and not because I have to earn a living.

Nepharia said...

I would become a professional writer.

PI said...

Salutations to Empress Bee. What she says is so true and I hope she continues to enjoy life for many years. Popped in again to see you from Micheles's.

SHI said...

not sure

make love and never stop?

Renee said...

I love your answer. And my, was it nice to dream if only a moment of the possibilities!
