Gloria Gaynor i will survive Lyrics
At first, I was afraid, I was petrified Kept thinking, I could never live without you by my side But then I spent so many nights thinking, how you did me wrong And I grew strong and I learned how to get along.

I work in a different industry and have worked away from home my fair share. Surgical intern year is much harder than I expected. I read every page of the CES letter, and it's definitely convinced me this entire religion is fabricated, but I'm sure she wouldn't even read it much less consider its points seriously.
