I'm Dick Swan and I'm a man out of work and out of luck. I need to vent and word my struggles. You know that my name isn't really Dick Swan, but let's pretend that it is. This isn't fiction, this is my life and my struggles that I'm sure many of you will share, at least I hope so. Writing this might help me cope, reading it might help you cope, or might just be a modest little escape. Read on and wish me the best as I try and hold my life together.
