About Me:

Hey everyone, I am Cathryn. I am going into my 5th year of pharmacy at Butler University. I am also working toward a minor in Science, Technology & Society! In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with friends and writing. I've been working on NaNoWriMo and am hoping to be published at some point in the near future as well. Most of the time you can catch me studying in the library or browsing the Internet. Oh, and did I mention that I got married last summer?

Happy October!!

I love October! Curtis and I started dating in October of 2005. Fall might be my favorite season, mostly because I love sweaters more than I love coats, and you can wear nice boots without getting them mucked up in snow. Additionally, I want to get married in October of 2013. Basically October and I should be together.

Campus during fall is so pretty too!

And another thing.

STARBUCKS PUMPKIN SPICE LATTES. What was unfortunate last year was that, during this time, I was slowly investigating an occasional (but increasing in frequency) all-encompassing, life-halting stomach pain (I’m exaggerating) that would crop up at the weirdest times. Finally, with the power of medical databases, I deduced that my stomach pain was correlated with the amount of milk intake I had. Including pumpkin spice lattes–well, and all other lattes, for that matter. My doctor told me to self-diagnose myself with lactose intolerance, which I’m pretty sure is what I decided.

I have a bunch of theories about how and why I developed it, but I won’t go into it now. I also love milk so this has been a problem.

For about a year, the idea of lattes repulsed me, for fear of getting those stomach pains. Luckily, that’s worn off, and I just pop a lactase supplement with my latte, and now I’m BACK IN BUSINESS. (It’s really hard to take a pill with burning hot coffee, let me tell you.)

The other thing about October that I love is HALLOWEEN. Unfortunately, clusters are scheduled over Halloween weekend. I will complain more about it when the time comes. For now, let’s reminisce about how I built Mandalorian armor in the dorm room sophomore year.

    I love Pumpkin Spice Lattes from Starbucks. Last year I went to their website to request that it become an all year drink. It’s so good, that it doesn’t deserve to be put on “seasonal status”. I think the big wigs at starbucks need to make a change here…and I’m sorry to hear about the Milk intake issue, but glad you have a solution…would be shame to miss out on all those lattes.

    That’s horrible! Do they have the new toffee mocha latte? It looks good. Silly international Starbucks!

    PUMPKIN SPICE LATTES!!!!! At least you’ve got something that makes it ok for you to drink them. I don’t even have the option. Apparently Korea Starbucks don’t believe in it or something. :P

    p.s. I love reading your blogs. And your pictures make me miss Indiana.
