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?

Fridays off?

I thooought the P3 second semester schedule was going to be somewhat merciful, with our late start on Mondays and our Fridays off. Turns out I’m going to be spending every waking moment doing:

- 2 mini presentations, two debates, and at least three other presentations

- Two papers

- Two hundred drugs – studying EVERYTHING ABOUT THEM

- Two shadowing experiences

- One community project

- Don’t even get me started on clusters

- Reading two novels

- AND A PARTRIDGE IN A PEAR TREE

All while getting my nonexistent CV together, brushing up on all my necessary certifications to get ready to go on rotations, and somehow finding time to watch every episode of Scrubs available on Netflix in preparation for rotations.

You won’t believe this, but Ashley created a picture of this exact moment sophomore year. Premonition.

Semester Goals: A Treatise

I really need to make a better effort to stick to my goals for this semester, as it’s my last one on campus and I think I could really NAIL IT if I tried.

Here’s what I’m thinking.

1) Early morning workout. I’m going to try and wake up every day at the same time and get a workout in before class. I’ve been graced with an awesome schedule where I don’t have many early days (just one 8am class! which I did to myself!)

2) Friday study times. So I have Fridays off, but I’m taking 19 credit hours (again, WHY AM I DOING THIS TO MYSELF?), which means I’ll definitely need that day to catch up on everything. I’m planning on camping out at the library or Hearthstone on these days, having Internet silence (ie–no Facebook and Tumblr and all the time-wasting sites I go on) while I’m studious.

3) COOKING. Last semester, Curtis and I ate chili and mac and cheese, Hamburger Helper, and fast food. I can’t emphasize enough how excellently we’re modeling a Poor American Diet. I want to make a better effort to plan meals and lunches and get vegetables in my diet.

Example of Poor American Diet:

Those are tacos and refried beans which we dumped queso over. I mean, you know. Priorities.

Last goal: study for two hours every night. This one is going to be the hardest, I can already tell. BUT I WILL DO IT FOR THE GOOD OF THE TREATISE.
