Speaking of health insurance...I might have mentioned it but I forget. My insurance isn't going to be offered after this year, so in November I have to pick an Aetna plan. The closest one they have to what I currently subscribe to is $60/month more than what I'm paying Health Now, and it doesn't look like any of my usual providers participate. I'm not totally upset, but I'm not happy. I'm also a bit ticked knowing that between this year and next, our yearly June raises probably won't cover the $60/month increase.
Cornell used to give good raises, but since I started it's been 0-2% each year. Being happy I have a job isn't really working for me any more. I feel like those of us that have worked harder with less colleagues should be reimbursed for the extra effort. The same work load is there-if not more-but with less people.
I know it's like that all over. Tonight I'm starting to feel a bit bitter about it.
