Usually when I hear “Work For The Working Man” by Bon Jovi, I think of my father.  When I first heard the song, my dad had been laid off from work.  I was worried that I’d have to drop out of University because my dad basically paid for my entire degree since Student Loans wouldn’t..

Life is uncertain and strange. Sometimes I don’t understand a damn thing. What am I doing here? Why am I not there? What will I be doing soon? Why did I do this then? I am a skeptic.  I trust rarely.Sometimes I wonder if I really trust at all. I ask a lot of questions. ..
