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?

Current Favorite Things

I love all the things!

Finally, after my entire life of not watching any movies ever, I have finally started catching up on all of those flicks everyone loved and yells at me when I haven’t seen. Netflix assists on my journey.

So far, we’ve acquired Step Brothers, The Hangover, Fargo, Pineapple Express, Casablanca, On the Waterfront, and a couple of others that are escaping me right now. I thought The Hangover was slightly disappointing (I think it’s been talked about for so long nothing really surprised me), but I loved the snot out of Step Brothers and everything else. “We have so much more room for activities!!”

Music-wise, I am in love with Adele’s “Someone Like You.” It’s such a powerful song with a lot of soul. When it comes on the radio, I blast it and sing it at the top of my lungs and drive like crazy. If you see my car on Binford, just go around me and leave me to my singing.

I’ve been digging G. Love and I am really into Amos Lee’s album Mission Bell, especially the song “Flower.”

As for books, I am reading The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood and I love that it’s on the banned books list. So much so that one of my friends and I have decided to try and read all the books on the list. I’ve gotten through a couple already. Scandal!

My phone has still refused to release my bell tower picture. So here’s one I took of the sun coming up over our lake.

This is how we do birthdays.

Even though clusters were scheduled three days after my birthday, we still managed to have a kick-a time.

Birthday Pancake Bacon Sandwich.

It all started with breakfast. While my roommates cooked, I sang and danced to Ke$ha. It was the appropriate Birthday move. After properly fueling my brain, I was secluded in Kassandra’s room to study for 4 hours.

Birthday! Yeeeaaah!

Okay, but, at 6 PM sharp–the fun began.

See, there was a mystery to solve, and when you’re the birthday girl, it’s your job to solve mysteries. Get out the way, Mystery Machine. This one’s from Sherlock Holmes HIMSELF.

He has stationary with his FACE on it. He's a big deal.

APPARENTLY. Holmes got a tip on a big incident that happened at the British museum. An Ancient Chinese Ruby SOMETHING (the letter with the evidence was torn so we don’t know what) was stolen! And you know the easiest place to find Chinese things is PF Chang’s.

All I got was this dang fortune cookie!!

Since one of our suspects was from Texas (I don’t make the rules, I just read the ripped-up evidence report that Holmes sends), we decided to go see True Grit for recon.

Can I take him into custody?!

So we’re still not sure “who done it,” but it turns out the perps left the stolen goods in our care.

It belongs in a museum!

THAT WAS MY BIRTHDAY! Well, a summary. Trust me, there will be more pictures drizzled into future posts, like hot fudge on a sundae.

You’re welcome.

Black Swan

WARNING: This movie is intense.

I love Natalie Portman. I think my distant affair with her stated with V for Vendetta and continued on, even with her less than satisfactory performances in Star Wars Episodes I-III. We just got off on the wrong foot.

"Don't even talk to me, Anakin, I just know you're going to Force choke me and kill me via plot device!"

But listen. Black Swan is amazing. I thought Portman did a spot-on job playing a dancer. I kept on having to remind myself that she wasn’t a dancer by profession. I thought she was really, really good. After glancing over IMDb’s trivia, apparently the physical therapist scene was a real session. Wow.

If you can stomach some crazy, horror film-like scenes and a lot of drama, I highly recommend this movie. You won’t be disappointed. :)
