If i was given 500$ upon request, first thing i would do is take out my friends and family for a night out for dinner. For sure somewhere i’ve never been to yet, and after that head down to metro for a good evening movie. While at metro might as well get few “needs and wants”. like for instance a “need” at the moment for now would be groceries, and a bus pass to simply get to places around the city, also for sure like to make a strangers day by helping a homeless person eat or have clothing,
simply for the “wants” would definitely be clothes for up-coming winter/fall season and be prepared for rainstorms.
To be fully honest though, i’d save at least One Hundred or Two for Christmas shopping for when time i go back home for winter break. Anther thing i plan to do is get ready for school down at Vancouver Community College second semester next spring, even if i did get this 500 dollars id fully let it go towards school to become a culinary chef. Be perfect to buy a nice set of knives. If i were to move out also id start buying stuff id need like couches, i already have a tv, bed, a laptop, desk/chair. I can easily move in with a roommate and split the rent and everything else that would be necessary.
For more fun and quick wants, id for sure spend half the money on experiences. First thing that comes to my mind for a thrill experience would be sky diving or bungie jumping. Also like to admit i play quite a lot of video games and do own a Xbox One, for sure buy more games and controllers, few games come to mind are NBA 2k15 and Call of Duty: Advance Warfare and last is EA Sports UFC.
