In My Humble Opinion #5

By: Sue Van Den Broeck What constitutes a real job ? So, 12 years of school have flown by, or 15 if you count all the R, RR and RRR’s. Somewhere between break time, Chelsea buns and your matric dance you stopped and thought about where you were being led.

As “smooth” as this may sound, what you see is what you get!  I don’t come from a broken home, my parents didn’t have hang-ups, there was...
