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?

On break, there’s no rules!

This is how overworked pharmacy students spend break:

– I did not put myself on any work schedules beyond my once a week shift.

– I only leave the house for food and friends.

– That means I leave very rarely.

– I have written 5,000 words in one novel and plan to finish it by the end of the weekend and then I’m going to plot the rest of my next one and get to writing.

FORZA 4!!1

And that is really it. I’ve been trying to read books and catch up on magazines that have been piling up since clusters, too. I’ve only got a little over a week left of break but I will milk every single minute of it!

The only thing remotely ambitious I want to do is try to make crock pot chicken pot pie.

OH, AND! How could I forget?! My favorite neighborhood ducks, Barry and Margot (the big white one and the big grey one) are back at our lake! It’s frozen right now but I’ve seen them splashing around in the unfrozen part!

This picture is from Christmas Eve!

Barry and Margot!

I noticed two ducks in our pond outside that are always together. They’re really cute ducks, too, because they’re three times the size of a mallard and the white one likes to chase other ducks off. I informed Curtis one day that they are husband and wife. So we named them Barry and Margot!

As far as I know, usually female ducks are more “ground colored” for camouflage, and boy ducks can just do whatever. So I think Barry is the white one (he’s also very territorial!), and Margot is the grey one. PRETTY.

One day, I was leaving for work. When I turned the corner to get on the sidewalk, I almost tripped over Margot because she was standing right there! Then Barry jumped out of a bush and they both waddled off. It was both adorable and alarming.

We like to observe the wildlife in the pond. The other day, a heron landed and stood around for a while, which prompted Curtis to show me what kinds of noises they make in a Youtube video. Except he found this gem. Good heavens.
