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.

Books! Books! Books!

Winter break means BOOKS.

As I stated in my last post, I have James Joyce’s Ulysses. We’ll see how that goes. I haven’t read literature since Charles Dickens in my Europe class sophomore year. Sooo. Been a while. But I’m a literary pro thanks to AP English in high school.

Next on my list is Tim O’Brien’s In the Lake on the Woods. If you didn’t already know, I’m a huge sucker for war-related fiction, and O’Brien’s The Things They Carried is one of my favorite books (well, short story compilation, really) of all time. I’ve started this new book and I absolutely love it so far–it’s about a politician whose wife disappears in the woods. The authorities think he killed her. DUN DUN DUN.

Thennn I asked for my brother to get me the True Grit book for Christmas. I haven’t started reading it yet, but I want to. I also want to watch the original film and the new one. So many things on my agenda.

Hopefully even when I get back to school, I can find some time to read. I guess if not, there’s always summer! (What student DOESN’T say that when it comes to reading?)

Can't decide if this original cover is creepy or goofy.
