About 20 acres outside the city where I can build a big old country house where my wife, my future kids, and my future adopted dogs can live.

I'm going to buy a patio, that I can get to by french doors out of the dining room.  That is after I pay some bills off...

Two things:

A refurbished "Tron" stand up arcade game.  Light cycles, spiders, tanks?  F'n A!

Also, a bad ass lowrider van, with a mural of myself on the side dressed up as an aztec warrior.  With a sound system on which I can play illegally loud mariachi music every where I go.

I'm going to get a weekly housecleaning service, and buy some furniture that doesn't come from Ikea or craigslist!

I am going to hopefully get a house once I finish law school.  If that happens I am going to buy the most kick a** hot tub on the market and build myself a bar, stock it with Crown, JD and Corona and jam out to Jack Johnson songs all night.

Hey akwolf, that's very generous -- he's going to have a sweet vacation on your bill! 

I'd buy an old VW convertible beetle (or perhaps a classic Mini) and fix it up (or pay someone to do it) and paint it bright red.  I'd rent a villa in the Caribbean and take my whole family there for a vacation.  Then I'd make fat donations to a bunch of radical groups to make myself feel better.
:) This is totally what I'm thinking. Since I (will) have the capacity to make the big bucks, why not do a little income transfer? I make the money from the people who have a lot of it and then pass it on to those who don't.

And...a small, beautiful house. I don't need anything big. I'm mostly looking forward to a dishwasher.

I'm going to go TRAVEL (haha, if I can get the time off)...I wouldn't mind getting a couple jet ski's either.  Oh and I promised my mom I would buy her a Lexus  :D
