Seriously, what is with this? Apparently we just shifted into hinoki cyprus season, where it had previously just been cedar, which doesn't much affect me. This has been one of the most severe allergy seasons I've ever experienced. Probably influenced by other stresses, no doubt. I think another bad allergy season was right when I was graduating from college in 1991, and had no idea where I'd be working... or living, for that matter.
So, yeah, ringing ears. Not a fan.
