It dawned on us recently that Bon Jovi may have really been onto something. Though we spent years belting out "Livin' On A Prayer" as part of our Friday-night playlist, we realize now that we had it all wrong: The '80s tune isn't the soundtrack to your junior year of college — it's the unofficial anthem to Wednesdays as a grownup.

You'll make it, we swear.
