        3 years ago I got hooked up with a good pulmonologist. He helped me identify an allergen I could eliminate (cats, no offense); and put me on several medications that significantly help with the pollen.

        In the US it’s a solid 4 months of that BS. Midterms are about 2 months. You’re lucky.

      Almost a year into measures now. Politicians are sounding more like idiots by the day. Rules are for the commoners, politicians: no rules.

        We’re coming out of juniper pollen season here in central Texas which is typically pretty brutal. Glad it’s on the outs for now.

        Drink both. Or even better, find a coffee and tea that mix well together - various black and red teas are usually a good place to start for this.

      When learning Mandarin (yes, not joking) at one point you have to ditch the "pinyin", it does not help. Learn the pronunciations by heart...

        Tricky thing about pinyin is that the actual pronunciation can change with context, e.g., two "second tones" in a row.

        The thing about tones is you need to get to a flow. If a mandarin learner is slowly pronouncing every word with its standalone tone it is harder to be understood IME. Another thing that those who grew up only speaking non-tonal languages can have a hard time understanding is that tone is just as important for meaning as pronunciation. Sometimes moreso.

        I haven't seen a sunrise in years, I hit my most productive flow late at night. Can't get anything done in the morning knowing I have other things to do later in the day, but the night feels boundless. I'd swap to a biphasic sleep schedule if I could but USA life revolves around 9-5...

        I've been lifting for 7-8 years, with Brazilian jiu jitsu and cycling thrown in.. I bought a set of resistance bands that go from 15 to 60 kg, use them single or in combination to "deadlift", squat and what not and they work really well. Lower weight than in a gym so slow reps. Home workouts are pretty effective, just not as nice as going out or to a gym

        The best thing I've heard (maybe it was from SBAF, i don't remember) in these times is - "the one thing we've learned in 2020 is that the most realistic part of a zombie movie is the people who cover up their bites."
