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?

EAT EVERYTHING week

The two things that normally come with nonstop finals studying are, well, studying and sleep deprivation. But there’s one last component that really makes finals week a triumvirate of bad decisions and general uncomfortableness.

This was study-thon Sunday. We were holed up in the basement of Irwin and there was no leaving until we learned everything there was to know about therapeutics, kinetics, and PDA.

…oh yeah. Mustn’t forget the bag full of candy.

It’s week like this I can’t really decide if we’re going to get diabetes or anemia first. Like that is NOT NUTRITION but it’s what we ate all day long. No regrets.

The library has a new reservable room policy which has actually worked out in our favor. Studying in groups on campus means needing table space (see above) and also being free of distraction, and there are only so many large study rooms on campus. I can’t tell you how many times we’ve stared into that particular room to see one person in it watching Hulu. For hours and hours.

SO NOW, being able to reserve the room, we show up for four hour blocks (or more if each of us books it) and just… well, it may look like a party, but it isn’t. Maybe we put a little fun in education. For the most part we shout questions at each other and try to use the chalkboard (CHALK IS A TERRIBLE THING) and then we sit silently and think about our lives.

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!
