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?

Final Countdown

I couldn’t help but turn on President Obama’s stop in Madison, WI this morning with none other than Bruce freakin’ Springsteen.

Watching it streaming on my computer wasn’t like the real thing but it was PRETTY CLOSE.

There are a lot of important issues at stake here. I know my future will depend a lot on how this election will go. Recently, I’ve been pondering the idea of working as a pharmacist commissioned by the Federal government to work in public health. I care deeply for the health disparities in this country and I care when policies threaten to take choices away from individuals (namely, women).

That said, health is a right that should be protected and not at the discretion of who can profit from it. It’s not a privilege or something companies should withhold as a bargaining chip. It’s complicated and there’s no good solution, but we have to start with the basics. And it’s the right to healthcare.

I’ve got a lot of feels about this election and I hope you all are registered and have either already voted or are ready and excited to vote tomorrow. Check out your polling location and GET OUT THERE! I sent my absentee ballot into my swing state of Ohio a couple of weeks ago and it was such a treat to look at all the issues and candidates and take part in our wonderful democracy.


Like The Boss said, let’s carry the country forward to “a standard where nobody crowds you, and nobody goes it alone.”

VOTE!!
