Net Neutrality: Should the internet be FREE?!

Penny-Nickel-Dime-Quarter-Presidents-on-US-Coins-56d8e0373df78c5ba023fdd2It’s 12/31/2017 and surprisingly- even my own sanity is free at this point.

Teddy approached the shore of the lake and stared into the lake- probably looking for potential prey- or maybe fancying himself in the lake’s reflection. Teddy decided to enter the Cozy Lake community and I allowed it to happen- I’m a dictator. We walked up a steep hill; slowly we climbed the hill, mine and Teddy’s breath getting more heavy and intense. Of course Teddy stopped to smell the pee stained snow at every chance he could get. read more

So you wake up in the morning, take a glance in the mirror, and realize- you look exactly like this realistic statue. You’re a filthy slob, sleep walking through your hallway that oddly smells like your grandparents’ house. The worst realization of ALL hits you:

You can’t find a suitable job and are unemployed.

I know the struggles of unemployment. You feel like you’re living as a nomad in a dog-eat-dog world where no one is cutting you any slack and you hit one brick wall after another. The solution comes when you ask yourself one simple question: read more
