    Hah! This is random, and funny to me- Did you know you can purchase the right to develop wetlands by making a payment into a government fund that restores / protects wetlands.

    Yes, it's a thing they do to "make up" for destroying wetlands. You develop over here, so you need to restore some over there. The theory is that there isn't any harm to the environment as long as the same total amount of wetland area exists. So basically they see it as just moving things around.

    Hope you're OK Jennifer! I heard about the helicopter crashing outside the Space Needle.

    Yea, totally. Just had 1 question for the IRS guy and he just wanted to review everything and he kept putting me on hold. I'm actually excited about the Gov Health plan thing - Self-employment insurance is such a rip off. I think I have the worst plan ever. I just called wanting to see why I was rejected (turns out because I already have insurance - which obv will be canceling), plus the website wasn't loading for me. Uhg. When I called they told me upfront the wait time was 120 minutes!! So crazy. Glad it's finally done and I can enjoy the rest of this day.

    So sad!!! I woke up this morning to sirens blazing. I just knew something bad happened - my heart dropped. You just don't hear that many firetrucks, ambulances, etc in the city at once.

    Oh, so you're getting some health insurance from healthcare.gov? I was actually excited too, until I found out I fall in the doughnut hole. No insurance for me since I don't make enough money to qualify for a subsidy. The perils of being a grad student. Luckily, they can't penalize me either. If you don't make enough to qualify for a subsidy, then you don't make enough to warrant a penalty. Still sucks though. I was looking forward to having "real" insurance.

    I'm leaning towards it. Just from a quick 20 min glance it looks like I'll basically be paying the same thing, but my plan won't include dental (which is such a rip off in my current plan. $40 per mo, doesn't include emergancies. Cleaning is only like $250 per yr) but my deductable will go from 5k to 1k. I just need to find a new primary doctor cause my current isn't in the network. I've been seeing her for 10 years, so it kinda sucks.

    That sucks about your situation. Does Mr. BRS not have a family plan through his work you can get on?

    On another note: I just realized I've been on my computer for 17 hours! Not straight of course. But my eyes are totally feeling it. Everything is blurry. Uh oh, my poor old eyes. Better rest them! lol

    LOL! Yep, don't stare at the computer too long!

    No, Mr BRS doesn't have insurance at all. I can go to the health center at school if I need to, but the services there are limited.

    Uhg that's really too bad Yea I remember the healthcare services at my old university, very limited. At my school it was basically only there for birth control, if you broke a bone, flu shots, etc.

    Sorry Jennifer, sounds like a headache. :/

    I'm sitting in a Bowling Green, KY Starbucks, drinking coffee and browsing the web. Scott had a class here today so I'm killing time...

    Oh gosh, I don't know if they would be able to handle a broken bone there! LOL! You can go there for a flu shot or if you're sick. They are very hesitant to prescribe stuff there though. Like I had a sinus infection and I KNEW it was a sinus infection (I've had enough of them to know). I pretty much need antibiotics, otherwise I'm sick for a month and a half. I practically had to twist their arm to convince them it was indeed a sinus infection.

    What crappy day. I got a crack in my windshield, which is the second time in the last 4 months. Luckily the insurance is getting it this time cause the whole window doesn't need to be replaced - just filled. But still. The luck?
