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?

The list of Things I have no time for

I have a lot of time to think about things while I drive to and from campus. And when I have too much time to think, I get ideas.

So I have two ideas for novels, and no time at all to write them. This is probably the complaint of a lot of writers, and I don’t want to be one of those writers who just laments never having time, and never making the time. I won’t leave the ideas for dead. NOPE.

Then I guess more importantly, I have to come up with a project for my last year of school–the dreaded P4 project. I actually have a lot to work with here, even though all of my pharmacy student career I’ve been dreading this thing. I like reading and interpreting research, but actually designing and conducting it makes me fall asleep. BUT. I definitely want to work with veterans and mental health and, well, drugs. So we’ll see what comes up as this year progresses–I have to decide … well, soon.

Then there’s books. I want to read books for fun like a normal human being. I still haven’t finished this book and I’m borrowing this book and literally two years ago I started this book and never finished it. Not to mention I kind of want to reread Harry Potter from start to finish.

Instead this is my weekend after clusters because reading books and writing novels far exceeds my brain capacity. Plus I probably have work to do, I just haven’t had the heart to look yet.

I’m baaaack!

And you thought you could get rid of me! Ha! Fools!

For those of you who have been following me, hi again! New readers, welcome!!

In case you were wondering, I’m Cathryn. I am a senior at Butler. But, really, since I’m in the pharmacy program and everything is tremendously more difficult, I’m a P2 student. With 3 years before graduation, I’m essentially a sophomore. C’est la vie.

On top of being a pharmacy student, I’m also a writer. I’m currently working on two things: a scifi novel and a series of short stories centered around the Vietnam War. If I actually had time to write these things, I’m sure they would be lovely!

I’m engaged (as of this past January!) and I have two ca-raaazy roommates, all of whom you will be hearing about frequently. :)

I also like Harry Potter (A LOT) and I think I’ve convinced the entire blog staff to start a Quidditch team here at Butler. I’ve reached a new nerdy low.

Back to the tremendously difficult-ness of being a pharmacy student, I have something called “clusters” this week. If you don’t know what “clusters” are, go find a thesaurus. I can tell you that if you look it up, you will find that it has several meanings: 4 tests in 3 days, sleep deprivation, candy over-consumption, and a few tears. Maybe. Basically, the pharmacy program here schedules all tests for 3 days, 3 times a semester in an effort to … alter our stress levels. I think the original idea was to help lower our stress, but sometimes I wonder…

Welcome to pharmacy school. Here's an 8-pound pharmacotherapy book.

Long story short, I have a lot to learn about stomach upset, anemias, and antihistamines. Chances are, you will not here from me until I crawl out of my study burrow late Friday afternoon. Once I change out of my study PJs and see the light of day, I will have more interesting things to share with you all.

Until then, toodles!
