How my dog saved my life

Bella has gone way beyond the minimal three-tasks required of a service animal. She has saved my life. My world used to be secluded, shades down, and not leaving the house. Now, I can go to college and accomplish my dream of a Michigan degree.

In theory, government regulation of prostitution would create a safe, profitable environment where women, and some men, can cater to the carnal desires of humanity without fear of abuse or discrimination. They would have a union that would protect and fight for their rights. They would have access to proper health care, and wouldn’t have to go through a pimp to earn their living. In reality, as anyone can see, it doesn’t quite work out like that.

It’s rare that I will actually watch a t.v. show without also writing a paper, sending e-mails, or trying (and failing) to read a book for class. And even if I’m not on my computer, I am texting someone on my phone. Commuting to and from school is the perfect time for phone calls, right? And why shouldn’t I study for class while I am on the elliptical at the gym? Killing two birds with one stone isn’t a crime.
