I've Always Wanted to Say This: What Do You Want?

We all have one: the Prize. Something that we've promised we'll buy ourselves as a reward when we get through all the exams, write all the papers, and slide into that shiny new job. After all, you don't slave for three years and work yourself to death in order to get money. You sell your soul for the things that money buys.

Since we're all stressing like mad over exams, the Prize is probably more on our minds than normal. So in the name of fostering avarice everywhere: tell us what it is. Just leave a comment with your particular prize, or if your a blawger, just make sure to track back to this entry. Eventually we'll have a master-list of law school avarice, and then we can... we can... erm... I'm sure we'll find a use for it somehow.

Oh, a few rules: (a) No beauty-contestant answers, like "A job working for world peace." That's very sweet, but it's not what we're looking for. (b) Answers are limited to things you want to buy yourself. Again, it's nice that you want to buy your parents that yacht they always wanted, but 'tis not the point. (c) If possible, include a link to an example, so we can all see.

Comments

a nice cozy victorian in west philly and a job that gives me the time to repaint it.
I really don't have a specific, retail-item 'prize' - having an interesting career and generally pleasant lifestyle are my goals. I suppose you could put things like 'a nice house' in my prize-bucket, but really for me I'm just aiming at a general high-quality-of-life.
A Trophy Wife.
NeoTokyo: Sorry, I don't think you can actually buy one of those.
I think mailorder brides might be considered a trophy. You'd have to be pretty desparate.
A Ferrari. And a wardrobe full of slick, big city lawyer suits.
First row midfield season ticket seats here. (a whole bunch more info is here) i also wouldn't mind an apartment here
Oh yeah, one more link--an old blog post about the stadium construction announcement (didn't actually state that was my dream or anything, but it gives a concise bit of background on the stadium).
Well, as you know I can't have it, but a cozy place in London near the Theatre District would be the absolute best thing money could buy me. My favourite city (witness the colourful spellings!) and my favourite part of it. W
I can't come up with any material item, somewhat to my surprise. Real estate, most likely, so I can hire my friends from a former life to do renovations. All I'm really looking forward to buying are plane tickets to exotic/interesting locales. And nice leather goods...
Newcastle United Football Club.
1- A nice little old house up against the edge of an ocean-facing cliff in Spain. The moors built them. 2- An enormous library. 3- More education. 4- A Murcielago.
Sorry about the triple trackback -- mt decided to ping you three times for some reason.
I want a big house. and a 2007 ford shelby gt mustang.
