Disillusionment, self-inflicted lethargy - A lengthy break from thinking of Anything at all in the face of existence.

I was planning on doing it tomorrow morning, but as it was four in the morning and I still hadn’t fallen asleep, I stopped entertaining hopes that I wake up before noon.

think-progress: Oral contraceptives, or “the pill,” can cost $1,210 per year without health insurance. Women of reproductive age spend 68 percent more on out-of-pocket health care costs than do men, in part because of contraceptive costs. Surveys show that nearly one in four women with household incomes of less than $75,000 have put off a doctor’s visit for birth control to save money in the...
