(CNN/WHDH) — “I’m sorry, I’m just a little overwhelmed right now.”

Can you blame Sandeep Singh? According to WHDH, the 22-year-old became $30.5 million richer less than 24 hours after buying a MegaMillions Quick Pick ticket in Cade Cod, Mass.

“My mom picked it up and started reading it,” Singh said. “She had to read it a few times.”

The new millionaire already knows what he wants to do with the money, saying he’ll pay off his mom’s mortgage, surprise a few family members and make some donations to several community organizations.

Singh’s father died when he was a freshman in high school, and he’s been working two jobs ever since. Yes, he has given his two weeks’ notice to one of his current employers, Citizens Bank.

Now all he has to figure out is how to break the news to the the ex-girlfriend who just broke up with him.

“I was heartbroken at first,” Singh said. “But now, I’m not really worried about it.”
