What do you do with your 2 years? Where do you do it?
If i go to a less wealthy country do i still get £2500?
I'd probably keep working, spend £500 a month more than I do currently. Save up £40,000 over 20 months (+ interest) then go for 4 months on holiday and have enough left over to put a deposit down on a house/flat or pay off all my student loan and have a decent amount left
VEGAS! ALL ON BLACK!
Boring answer would probably be pay off more of my mortgage and eat from M&S, with a few extra long weekend holidays thrown in.
Pounds, no tax, you don't need to work.
get a flat together and apply for a masters degree. Spend the weekends going on trips to good places in europe, buy nice food and eat it.
2500 lbs? i'd probably drag it to the nearest fjord and ride it out to sea. we'd sail the oceans, stopping off and exploring the foreign lands we found on our journey.
in a surprise plot twist the 2500 lbs and I would gradually fall in love, a montage set to phil collins would highlight the turbulence a young man and his 2500 lbs would experience whilst falling for each other on a global voyage
2 years later, the 2500 lbs would die and all i'd have left were confused memories
I'd go back to uni and study post-grad medicine
I guess you could save as you went.
/move to the French Rivera, hire a pair of naked butlers that look like ancient Greek statues to bring me cocktails and feed me olives, keep playing the lottery.
Sorry that my plans for this free money I'd get for doing nothing every month for two years aren't realistic enough for you, man.
Although I guess it is inferred. Your plans are fine with me, if you can swing a bargain ;-) although the reason I kinda put the amount at 2500 instead of unlimited or crazy high was to keep it in the realms of possibility.
i'll move to a penthouse apartment in New York and shop and lunch for the two years then.
I'm just watching
and live like a king for 2 years, it's the white man's way!
- make some films
- omg it's feb 1st
Considered this year but ITS ALREADY FEB 2ND. so no.
This year I am not even pretending to myself I will get it done. Most years I make a half hearted attempt and then work gets busy and I lose my weekends and it puts me in a proper strop.
Come home and rest for a week, then start up again.
this is a me doing a silly thing, thing. Although if it was a citizen's income thing and thus free, I'd be all for that.
