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?

Studython Playlist

I don’t know why, but to get my finals study on, I have to (first of all) stay awake.

And reminisce?

So my study playlist looks like it’s straight out of 2001 or a bad pop station from now. A little bit of both. And it’s all thanks to Spotify which enables me to add a bunch of songs that I should not be allowed to put together into one playlist.

I’m actually reusing my study list from last year, which consists of N*SYNC, Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears–your imagination can fill in the rest. It also has a mix of Arcade Fire (?) and The Killers. I do not claim to have any taste in music.

Classic.

It keeps me awake and pumped. Whatever it takes, right? I mean, it’s  better than drinking so much coffee that I fall out of my chair.

Study Jams

Clusters start Monday (Tuesday for P3s!) so that means my Spotify has been blowing up with nonstop music.

My current jam is Harper Lee by Little Green Cars. It might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I heard it on WTTS and I was like “this song was made for me.” Something about the vocals and the indie rock and the literary reference. I just love that.

Also please join in the magnificence that is Levon Helm. He died last year on April 19th.

Something about playing the drums and doing lead vocals just screams TALENT. Also… Levon Helm. The Band. Majesty.

It’s Friday, so it should be my day off, but I am on campus in the science library and it is COLD. It was 80 on Wednesday! I bite my thumb at thee, weather! Such is the reality of cluster prep, though. It’s nice and quiet up here except now Levon Helm is wailing in my ears. Thanks Levon.

(I may or may not have tagged this post Music Monday and I regret nothing.)

Music Monday on Tuesday

I’m getting on the Music Monday Boat (sorry it’s late!).

I made a playlist on Spotify called Juice Party and that’s been my jam (title is in reference to Buster Bluth from Arrested Development, extra points if you know what I’m talking about). Highlights being: Salt-N-Pepa, Gorillaz, Ke$ha, Beastie Boys, and most importantly, new singles off of Justin Timblerlake’s 20/20.

To be truthful I’ve  been kind of meh about the entire 20/20 album but I do really like the singles off of it, especially Mirrors.

The SNL performance was GRAND too.

And if Juice Party isn’t your thing, I have POWERRR (in reference to Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson. I don’t know where I get these, seriously.) This playlist is actually pretty chill. I’ve got mostly new indie rock and some old classics like James Taylor, Jim Croce, and Jackson Browne. I’m in love with this song by Two Door Cinema Club called Sleep Alone.

OKAY AND THIS IS JUST WEIRD.

If you look at the comments, apparently FIFA 13 used this song for their new game? And there was another song I fell in love with that also used this song. Atlas Genius – If So (I actually prefer the acoustic version).

That’s all from my music archives this week!
