1. Save part of it for college, including my mom's and if I want to go beyond Bachelor's degree
2. Save money for emergencies, like lack of job or something happening to the home
3. Give enough money so that my parents don't have to work anymore
4. Use money to get my relatives from overseas to the US
5. Get a nice (but not mansion-ish) house that can fit my entire (extended...to an extent) family and room for all the Japanese stuff I want
6. Charity to worthwhile organizations
7. Nice long vacation with my parents and friends

That's right, I'd still want to work even with all that cash.

Wow.  I honestly hope some of you never get a billion dollars then, if it's going towards anime merchandise and video games.

Ah, nice to know you haven't changed much.  Can I have a million dollars, instead?

I was trying to say that you have two first priorities if you ever got a million dollars.  Two things at once.

1) Pay my debts...
2) Invest around the 50% in some wise actions, and companies... to make sure i don't waste it like hell...
3) Finish College and specialty... (including international studies)
4) Help my parents to sustain themselves, and pay my brothers studies
5) Learn 3 or 4 more languages...
6) Travel around the world... mostly backpacking...
7) Give my parents some well deserved vacations...
8) Support national artists, specially the graphic novel ones (my country can't support them less than they do already)...
9) create my own fundation to help people in need, that way i make sure there's no dirty money in the way...
10) after all that, with the winnings of the previous investment, i could start to give some scholarships to students in need that really deserve it...
11) Develop some personal projects... but without quitting job, i don't think i can quit it...
12) a second travel around the world...
