What I'd do if I won the lottery

Two years ago, my friends and I went to 7/11 to buy powerball tickets, joking that we would not have to take the bar if we won the $1.5 billion. I unfortunately did not win, and carried on with life finishing law school, etc. If I won, I'd take the lump sum over the annuity, and embark on the following:
  • Pay off student loans
  • Go on that HGTV show where they film lottery winners splurging on villas/invest in real estate
  • Hire a financial advisor [and a personal trainer while I'm at it]
  • Invest 
    • (diversity is important, need to make sure I'd get more back than I'd make on the annuity, also I want to see what it's like to own a parking lot, specifically Disneyland Resort's parking) 
  • Pay off my parents' home
  • Start a foundation
    • Addressing goals such as helping Cambodian children, and making unsightly communities more aesthetically pleasing (a modern day Miss Rumphius
  • Travel 
  • Become a male socialite
It's fun to fantasize, but even without winning the lottery I hope to achieve some of these goals in my lifetime. It's also interesting to think that money is the main thing stopping me from hiring an advisor or trainer, so personal service is something currently beyond my means that I hope to change in the future. If I ever do somehow win the lottery, I hope to look back on this and try to be responsible (but I know I'll buy a crazy private plane with a yoga studio and fly my friends and family to Paris).
