Gonna try posting again

Its been a long time since I posted, and I wanted to try again.  I might be a bit different with it.  It will be sporadic, probably not very long posts and a bit more general in the topics I post about.  I met a few new people online who seem really cool, so hopefully they start reading this too :)

School is going well.  I am enjoying the research I am helping out with.  There is one other assistant who is a jerk to me and tries to get me in trouble, but the professor in charge is a really cool guy and there is really nothing to get me in trouble over so its just an annoyance.

This fall was probably the worst season ever for my allergies!  I knew I was very allergic to ragweed, but there isn't much of it around Seattle, but OMG there are tons of it out here on the east coast!  If I didn't know any better I would have thought I had ragweed plants stuck up my nose!  Ugh.  I hope next fall isn't as bad.

This weekend I have had a cold/flu/something so I have been feeling really icky and had to miss parties :(  I was hoping I would be better by tomorrow but I think its going into my chest so I'll be sick for at least a few more days.  bleah!

Please post comments, questions, discussions, etc!


  1. Hey, I'm glad to see you posting again, it has been a while. Now that winter will be coming up soon will your allergies slow back down?

  2. Hi Kate hope you're feeling better! From your friend and faithful blog reader :)

  3. Chris: They calm down a bit cause there is no pollen to bother me, but I am still allergic to so many other things. Mold can sometimes be a bit worse in winter too. In early winter, when all the heating turns on in places, dust that had been sitting gets stirred up too.

    Steve: Thanks!

    I am glad I am getting at least a few comments. If I get alot of people reading and commenting, then maybe I can start asking questions for ideas/advice on stuff.

  4. So glad to see you back posting. I hope you are feeling better now.

    Something else I'd guess might bad at this time of year, I don't know whether, because of sinus congestion, you are affected by sudden changes of temperature? I know when I walk out into the cold after being in a warm house, I almost always sneeze several times and get a flash of sinus pain if my sinitus has been playing up.
