Despite the medicine my hay fever got worse and I spent the whole day sneezing and suffering – although I did not leave the apartment nor opened the windows. Nothing helped until late in the afternoon when I was so exhausted that I decided to call it a lost day regarding thesis and paper. Additionally I spent quite some time calling various times a doctor in My City and a doctor in Our City who was supposed to send a file to the first one but instead of sending a fax on Friday (as asked) decided to send it via snail mail (and I am pretty sure it was not mailed until this very morning). So more waiting and being distracted from my precious academic work.

And even the movie last night did not reconcile me with the day.
