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?

What do I do the week before school starts?

I go home to Cincinnati. (Am I doing it wrong?)

The whole plan was to make some Cincinnati appointments and get those done since it’s winter break and it’s a good time for such things. Did I make the calls to do that like a functioning adult? No. But I did start a new game of Zelda: Ocarina of Time on my Gamecube.

I hate to think that’s old school but I guess the Gamecube is now two Nintendo console generations behind. Oh, right, about being home!

COULD MY PHONE TAKE A WORSE PICTURE? Wait, don’t tempt it. I guess I could have been covering the camera with my finger or something. Ugh.

Right, so! I’m at my favorite coffee chain: Caribou Coffee! What’s so special about yet another coffee chain? Well Caribou is cabin/outdoor themed so their ottomans are little bears. And their napkins always have hand-drawn designs on them. AND I think they have better coffee than some other people.

The only Caribou in Indianapolis right now is on IUPUI’s campus, so if you’re down there, check them out.

I know that winter break is drawing to a close and this is my last break for an entire year. And my last semester of classes ever. I guess that’s why I’ve been such a lump–or at least not inclined to schedule myself up with tons of stuff to do. I’m really glad that I got to spend some time writing and with that guy that I live with who I didn’t see at all last semester. (Joke: I’m referring to my husband Curtis, who I hardly saw because of our ridiculous class/work schedules!)

So here’s to the end of break. (Insert groan from all of my friends whose breaks ended long ago and I’m sorry. :( )

And so I’m back! From outer space!

Usually by the time classes start again here at Butler, I’m wondering where the summer’s gone. For once, even though this was my last summer ever (next year I’ll be on experiential rotations!), I was actually kind of excited to come back. I was bored on vacation. That’s sad, I know.

I wanted to kick off the semester with a video blog but I haven’t had any time to sit down and do one! I get all handsy when I make vlogs and I have to edit the heck out of them, so I figured I’d do one toward the end of the week to talk about all the internships and things I did this summer. Because I have so much to do before Friday morning. It’s just the kind of week I’m having.

Monday morning’s commute out of Fishers made me think I needed NASA to coordinate a flight path or something for everybody. It was raining, but not that hard, or at least I didn’t think so! The trip with rush hour traffic usually takes me around 30-35 minutes, but it took me an hour and ten minutes to get in my seat in the pharmacy building. I was SO LATE! There were flash floods and everything!

Yesterday I completely bruised my pinky toe on our coffee table to the point I thought I broke it. I didn’t take pictures because it’s kind of hideous. It’s getting better though.

And we have 3 quizzes, two assignments, and I have to start thinking about a research design for my philosophy of science class by Tuesday. It’s been a rough first week.

So I’m waiting in the new study space in Irwin Library for traffic to die down so I can go home and study bacteria flashcards.

The new study space is pretty cool! This is a tiny shot of it, I know. But the chairs are red and my water bottle is full of water from the new Brita Hydration Stations. Ooo, ahhh!
