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?

Blowing everything off

My whole student career here, I’ve watched my friends get email after email saying that their classes have been canceled for one reason or another. In the science departments, it hardly ever happens. I’m not sure why. I remember for a whole week of organic chemistry, my professor taught with strep throat. It was insanity.

When it would snow a few inches, some professors would decide not to come to class. I remember one of my professors would come to campus from his farm in the boonies at 5 in the morning and never ever cancel class regardless of road conditions. And I’d be sitting in class all day seeing things on Facebook like:

“My class was canceled! Time for Starbucks lol!”

or even worse:

[updated at 2pm on a Tuesday] “Just woke up for my first class of the day lol”

Okay there might be an inaccurate overuse of “lol” but you get the idea.

Here’s my complex. Every time the mere suggestion of doing anything but schoolwork comes up, I get all indignant. And I act like this.

But the truth is, even when I have cluster exams, I really do want to get milkshakes and cheese fries at Steak n Shake. Like real bad.

And this semester, my last year of classes here, I have had around 4 classes canceled. It’s not even fall break yet. Am I being Punk’d?! Now I have to camp out until my evening class and since it’s post-clusters I have nothing to do. Except watch more Community, I guess.
