I was once told by a studio that I needed to make my look more cosmopolitan, that I needed to create a persona. I looked at them and said, ‘You just told me I wasn’t good enough to be myself. And that is not OK.
Hey. So, I know that I’ve complained a bit about my whole health insurance hullabaloo. But the truth is, thanks to the Affordable Care Act I HAVE health insurance, and health insurance that I can afford, and health insurance that I think is pretty decent. I had to go to the doctor unexpectedly about a month ago. Luckily I’m fine, but the whole thing would have cost me a couple thousand dollars but is only costing a couple hundred. And that’s pretty nice.
So, if you don’t have health insurance, please, get some. Especially if you are young and healthy. Don’t just pay the fine because it’s cheaper. You never know what could happen. And while a $99 fine might be cheaper for you now, it won’t be when you suddenly have something happen to you and you don’t have insurance.
Not to mention, the ACA and all the other people enrolled through it are depending on young and healthy people to make it work. They need you.
You have until March 31st to sign up. You can do it online atwww.healthcare.gov, or you can call them. Or you can even call one of the participating insurance companies themselves. It doesn’t matter how you do it, just that you do it.
photographer Yume Cyan has been shooting some magical long exposure photographs of fireflies in a forested area around Nagoya City, Japan. By keeping the camera’s shutter open at a low aperture Cyan captures every bioluminescent flash of each insect resulting in dotted light trails that criss-cross the frame.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
