This is exactly what longing for someone feels like. Holy shit.
My perfect day.
Fact: Raccoons are always watching you…
A Little Lost, a song by Sufjan Stevens on Spotify.
What a beautiful day to be dead, the husk of the spider said.
Using the word “plan” is never a wise idea, because the universe will always find a way to shake things up.
I’ve been planning a visit to Seattle in October with the ultimate goal of moving there in the not-too-distant future. I thought I had time to work on making it a smooth transition and that this would be a relaxed trip, but then today happened.
The company I work for sent out a notice that our insurance plan is drastically changing as of Sept. 1. For my coverage to continue as is with a low deductible and a reasonable co-pay for physician visits, lab work, and prescription drugs, I will have to pay a 205 percent increase in premiums — nearly $500 a month out of pocket, plus the co-pays.
The only other option is to pay a modest 7 percent increase — a total of $163 per month — but with a substantially higher deductible and no co-pays. I will be responsible for 100 percent of the bills from the doctor’s office, lab, and pharmacy until my deductible is met.
This would be a hardship under normal circumstances, but since my company froze wages seven years ago — no raises, cost-of-living adjustments or bonuses since 2007 — I now cannot afford to keep my job under these circumstances.
I’m still going to Seattle in October — it’s the one bright spot on my horizon that I’m not willing to extinguish — but now I’m under much more stress. It’s possible I’ll have to find a new job in Arkansas before making the move to Seattle.
Hopefully this will turn out to be the universe working in mysterious ways and not just being an asshole. I could really use something good right now.
"Will you merry me?" is a great way to ask your doctor for antidepressants.
Every Other Freckle, a song by alt-J on Spotify.
Yes, yes, yes.
