February 2019 Notes: Healthier and better

I spent most of my money on going to the doctor. Right now, we do not have the best health care in the world but we still have decent doctors –they just cost a lot. As part of my pre-employment requirements, I needed a medical certificate indicating I was fit to work. This included a …
