[Chronicles] If I had $1,000,000.00 dollars

Here is an old entry written in High School (2002) [From the Chronicles] after I got in trouble for buying candy bars at box stores and reselling them to my classmates for profit:

The Barenaked Ladies song "If I Had a Million Dollars" preaches poor financial planning. One Million certainly isn't a lot any more and purchasing all those needless items is not very provident.  I keep trying to make $1,000,000.00 but it's difficult given my lack of support. I was trying to sell M&M candy packets for profit in High School to raise money for, well, myself.  But I got a suspension. Apparently my High School doesn't award entrepreneurial interests and, in fact, disincentivizes them. I wonder where my class will be at our 10th year reunion? I hope somewhere nice like a ballroom or a pond. I would hate to have an accidental reunion at the soup kitchen we all find ourselves at after years of negative Pavlovian repercussions from trying to make money.
