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?

ICEPOCALYPSE! Part two!

This snowdrift is falsely enlarged due to past snows. but still cool.

Leave house during Icepocalypse. Take pictures next to snowdrifts. Recipe for awesome.

We are lucky enough to have a car between us that’s huge and has 4-wheel drive, which whisked us away to O’Charleys and Target, because we needed to stock up on calories for the long haul and also get some supplies: nail polish and candy. I, personally, bought bubblegum and just remembered I had it. CHEWING NOW. (Probably not good for my occasional jaw soreness, but it’s been behaving itself.)

Oh, also, our waiter at O’Charleys was totally Viggo Mortensen.

I’m not sure what the sidealks look like right now, but yesterday everything was a solid sheet of ice!

Solid ice! Cold winds! Parka!

Luckily, I have combat boots to get me through classes tomorrow.

It’s been an excellent week overall. My compounding lab at 8 AM on Friday got cancelled (EEEE!), and I do, unfortunately, have to go to a make-up lab for Self Care tomorrow. At least they’re taking pity on us and only making it an hour long, and we don’t have to wear professional attire. That would not. be. good.

Clusters are next week! Eeeeek! My birthday is Saturday! YAAAAY! :)

SNOWMAGEDDON! Part One!

Four years ago in February, Cincinnati got hit with an intense icestorm that got us out of school for 3 days. I spent endless hours playing The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and eating Pop Tarts. Go public schools!

I never really anticipated that something like this would happen again! But the Weather Channel reported thoroughly on the fact that a Snowmageddon was going to change life as we know it.

That was when Butler University announced it would be closed on Tuesday–Monday at 6 PM before anything even started.

News report? Check.

Official Butler page with cheering students? Check.

The most natural thing to do on your snow day is to run immediately to your car, dig it out, and go out to get lunch. This process was a lot slower than I just made it seem. The campus was COVERED in ice, and that means everyone’s cars were encased in at least half an inch of ice.

3 workers + 25 minutes = unfrozen car.

Imagine our surprise when it was announced at 2 PM on Tuesday that Butler would be closed on Wednesday also! YEAH! We watched stupid Lifetime movies and painted our nails. :) Snow days aren’t for catching up on all of the studying I haven’t done. pshaw.
