So, I’ve managed to survive the worst of the pollen season without too much suffering. The medicine I’ve been taking seem to have helped a bit, but still not 100% symptom-free. Helpfully, the weather forecasts here include detailed predictions of pollen, so on high pollen days it helps to stay inside. Wearing a mask ๐Ÿ˜ท also helps too. Pollen season is followed closely by sakura season, and I’ve been able to go out and enjoy the cherry blossoms once or twice so far.

Work has been getting a bit busier as well, since there’s a big deadline approaching on my current project. Looking forward to finishing it and hopefully being able to relax once it’s over.
