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?

First, a story on freshman housing

For those of you new to the blog, you may not have read back on all of my entries (and if you have … then more power to you), so I wanted to travel back to a prehistoric time when I was a freshman.

I looked like this.

And I requested to live in a triple or quad dorm in Schwitzer Hall. Which meant living with THESE TWO:

That’s us on move=in day. Memories.

But it all worked out for throwing three strangers together. We all liked Harry Potter and none of us had a secret shrine hidden away to our celebrity crush (to my knowledge?). We got through the awkwardness of communal bathrooms and living in one room together. And dropping 8AM math classes. (That was me!)

IN FACT, we ended up living together for the rest of our time at Butler! And it was AWESOME! Are we an atypical success story? Probably. But I can vouch for living in the Schwitzer Hall basement (where the triples and quads are) because it was the best wing ever. The laundry room was right down the hall! :)

Oh, and to end the story, my roommates Kass and Ashley graduated almost two years ago, leaving me to continue slaving away. Kass leaves in Indy still but Ashley moved to NYC and we don’t get to see her often UNTIL…

(to be continued.)

The Late Night Routine


Normally when I have exams, I plan out my study schedule so I can be in bed with a reasonable 6+ hours of sleep. This set of exams kind of creeped up me in that the more I studied, the less prepared I felt, so the more I had to study. So that cut into my sleep time. I’ve also been spending lots of time holing up on campus in various rooms I never knew existed, and some rooms that have changed drastically since I last had classes in them.

Yeah the last time I checked there weren’t skeletons and a row of butts in the lab on the 3rd floor. SURPRISE!

There’s something weird about being on campus past 10PM too. During clusters week, you’re not alone. In fact it’s completely normal. Walking down the halls, you can hear people in rooms giggling (at notes? hardly), and there’s a feeling of camaraderie. Or at least resignation to the fact that we all procrastinated this hard that we have to hole up together on campus at odd hours of the night.

My sleep schedule is so weird right now, it feels like it’s supposed to be 8PM but it’s… not. And last night at midnight it felt like 8PM. I need to just push a reset button this weekend!

(PS there’s a lot of BUPD around campus late at night too! We should all pool our money and order like 50 pizzas, gosh.)
