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?

Scheduling for the fall!

This really crept up on me! About a week ago I was all “scheduling isn’t for a while! I’ll put together my classes later!”

Bad move.

So scheduling for me started on Monday, and I was woefully unprepared. Luckily in pharmacy school there isn’t a whole lot you have to plan. Just on what days and times you want to sit through long group sessions/labs. For next semester, my classes were really easy–and I even got to pick out a professional elective!

For my STS minor, I needed to take a specific elective that counted for my pharmacy elective AND and STS course. Unfortunately, that class is only taught every other year–and I just found this out!!

So right now, I’m trying to find another STS course to take, and in the spring I will be taking two professional electives. This is actually awesome for me because these are the courses I want to take:

- Public Health

- Illicit Drugs (hehehe)

- Infectious Disease

- I’m sure there’s a fourth one but I can’t think of it

Anyway, being able to take two electives spring semester is really exciting for me. I am also a nerd, so that helps.

On the other hand, I will be taking biostatistics in the fall. That, I am not nerdy enough to appreciate.

In fact, it sort of terrifies me. What is that?!

Spring break countdooown!

It’s almost midnight, so I’m not counting Tuesday as a day anymore. 3 more days until spring break!!

Our clusters are scheduled Wednesday-Friday, which isn’t great at the moment, but it’s so, so much better than having them after spring break. Nothing boggles fun plans more than having a bunch of tests to study for!

I have a presentation in my STS class too. We’re going to look at the benefits of stay at home dads and the socially constructed obstacles to their success. Gender roles are a go!

Things are busy, but I think it’s manageable. I’m just really tired because I’ve been, sadly, lacking sleep. :( But that’s what break is for–recovery! I’m not going anywhere except maybe a quick trip to Cincinnati. It’ll be nice to relaaax. I need to finish The Hunger Games, anyway!
