Hey guys!  Hows it going?  I'm new to this thing, last week was my first time ever buying tickets.  I've done pretty good, bought tickets 4 times and won 5 times.  I'm still effectively in the green as far as money spent vs money won.  I started with scratchers but the draw games, primarily the mega millions and powerball have caught my attention.  I got a megaball ticket and won a dollar and a powerball ticket and got 4 bucks.  After that I dived into it, looking up tips, calculating odds and probability of each number versus trends of previous draws.  Gotta say, I'm having alot of fun.  I just woke up one morning a couple weeks ago with this strange, seemingly overwhelming feeling that I would win the lottery pretty big.  I've never in my life even had a desire to play the lottery before, never kept up with the winners or even paid attention to jackpot amounts.  Don't shoot me for this one, but I'd often laugh at my buddy for spending tons of money on scratchers.  Who knows maybe I'l nail it and retire at a ripe old age of 25.  Just thought I'd say hi,  I look forward to conversing and learning about the games with you guys.

      I really don't think a reality check will happen.  Feelings and expectations are different.  I am however really enjoying this so I'm sure I'l continue to play for as long as I am getting some sort of enjoyment out of it.  Lifes short, do what makes us happy, am I right?

            So? I'm sort of confused.  Your either laughing at me for not expecting a reality check when I honestly don't have any expectations, I just believe its possible to win something... or that Is a pun about a big fat check, in reality. Lol

                GTOPBMO5,  You should seriously consider starting a Dream journal.  Have you noticed that after you are awake a couple of minutes your dreams vanish. So, begin writing the moment you awake and your dream is still fresh.

                 Keep at it. It might take a some attempts.
