Last month I decided that I would try an experiment since one of my good friends is an avid scratch-off ticket buyer. She also happens to win often. So, I thought that I would start trying my luck -only nowhere near as often as she does. I told myself that I would purchase 5 of these one dollar tickets each month and find out if I could get lucky. I had no luck with my purchases last month, but I went ahead and purchased 5 more yesterday. I was shocked when I scratched them off and found 2 winners. Now, the amount of money I got was not that much(seventeen dollars), but it was a great feeling just to finally win something considering that I never win anything.

Congratulations my friend! Well deserved, it always makes me feel good if I get an unexpected win, I play the lottery each week and occasionally win but it's always £5 and £10 but they are still wins and it makes you feel good. Even if it's only seventeen dollars it's still a win my friend! Lets hope next time it's a much bigger win eh! I used to be lucky with online competitions and the best win I got was a colour television! Also when you win you can't wait to shout it out to share your good news with others.
