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?

Is it Thanksgiving break yet?

I have been running around for two weeks straight, and I can’t even pinpoint why, exactly, I’ve been so busy. All I can say is that I haven’t had time to study or blog. These are major problems, people.

Here’s a few things I’ve been doing.

Interning at K-Mart. It’s unpaid and it’s basically the same as working at Cookies by Design, and not to knock too hard on retail pharmacy, but I am not going to school for 6 years to work at Cookies by Design. I did that in high school and I ate a lot of cookies. It wasn’t good. On the bright side, the pharmacist I work with is really great, and most of the customers are exponentially nicer than the jerks who called Cookies. I am at least learning that retail pharmacy is not the place for me. 100 unpaid hours has taught me that.

See? NOT BITTER.

The next topic, which I will admit isn’t time consuming considering that we don’t meet every week, is my friend Spencer’s Dungeons and Dragons campaign. Yeah, that’s right. I play Dungeons and Dragons. And I LIKE IT. The basic gist of the story right now is that our characters are riding a steamboat up a river to deliver a mysterious package. I’m hoping this turns into Heart of Darkness or Apocalypse Now. Either one is fine with me. Pirates keep attacking, which is a good start!

So aside from interning and being a huge nerd, it was also parents weekend! We demanded that all of our parents come up and then we made them dinner.

Aw man. I don’t have pictures yet for that. PICTURES LATER THEN. But the menu was (all made from scratch): tiny pizzas, chicken and ricotta-stuffed pasta, tomato sauce, strawberry ice cream, and triple chocolate cookies. More on that later when pictures are available.

Last on my List of Things that Keep Me from Doing Other Things, my Dell’s shift key is officially haywire, causing me to type without caps and effectively ruffling my feathers. Grr. OneNote, luckily, will capitalize the beginning of every new line for me, but the rest is up to me to hit the Shift key in its sweet spot to make it work.

I know, I know. I need to take my computer to IT. I just don’t feel like it. EPITOME OF LAZINESS.

P.S. I Love You!

I’m here, I’m here. I have been running around nonstop since clusters. More on that later.

Tomorrow is the PAWS event, P.S. I Love You! I’m spear heading this event, which is a gathering of folks who are in long distance relationships. We’re going to discuss a whole slew of topics, from communication to tips on what do to when you can be together!

As many of you know, I’m in a long distance relationship with my fiance, Curtis! Curtis drove up here twice last week. He’s really a trooper. :)

Anyway, I’m going to be leading the discussion and hopefully nurturing camaraderie and enlightenment. Or I’ll just crack jokes. Who knows. Last year, we had a lot of fun sharing stories and offering advice. This year we’ll have a counselor from Counseling and Consultation Services. Hopefully we’re going to get a lot of good information and support out of this year’s event!

So! Tomorrow, November 9th, 8 PM in Atherton Union 302. There will be cookies. Free postcards. Chance to win a $25 gift card for you and your boo to go out to eat. Tell your friends!
