I go home to Cincinnati. (Am I doing it wrong?)
The whole plan was to make some Cincinnati appointments and get those done since it’s winter break and it’s a good time for such things. Did I make the calls to do that like a functioning adult? No. But I did start a new game of Zelda: Ocarina of Time on my Gamecube.
I hate to think that’s old school but I guess the Gamecube is now two Nintendo console generations behind. Oh, right, about being home!
COULD MY PHONE TAKE A WORSE PICTURE? Wait, don’t tempt it. I guess I could have been covering the camera with my finger or something. Ugh.
Right, so! I’m at my favorite coffee chain: Caribou Coffee! What’s so special about yet another coffee chain? Well Caribou is cabin/outdoor themed so their ottomans are little bears. And their napkins always have hand-drawn designs on them. AND I think they have better coffee than some other people.
The only Caribou in Indianapolis right now is on IUPUI’s campus, so if you’re down there, check them out.
I know that winter break is drawing to a close and this is my last break for an entire year. And my last semester of classes ever. I guess that’s why I’ve been such a lump–or at least not inclined to schedule myself up with tons of stuff to do. I’m really glad that I got to spend some time writing and with that guy that I live with who I didn’t see at all last semester. (Joke: I’m referring to my husband Curtis, who I hardly saw because of our ridiculous class/work schedules!)
So here’s to the end of break. (Insert groan from all of my friends whose breaks ended long ago and I’m sorry. )
This is how overworked pharmacy students spend break:
– I did not put myself on any work schedules beyond my once a week shift.
– I only leave the house for food and friends.
– That means I leave very rarely.
– I have written 5,000 words in one novel and plan to finish it by the end of the weekend and then I’m going to plot the rest of my next one and get to writing.
– FORZA 4!!1
And that is really it. I’ve been trying to read books and catch up on magazines that have been piling up since clusters, too. I’ve only got a little over a week left of break but I will milk every single minute of it!
The only thing remotely ambitious I want to do is try to make crock pot chicken pot pie.
OH, AND! How could I forget?! My favorite neighborhood ducks, Barry and Margot (the big white one and the big grey one) are back at our lake! It’s frozen right now but I’ve seen them splashing around in the unfrozen part!
This picture is from Christmas Eve!
[thick British accent whispering voice] And now we watch the wild Cathryn in her natural habitat as she prepares for winter break hibernation.
If I could just curl up in a box and not be disturbed for three weeks, that would be awesome. Then again, I have a ton of fun stuff to do!
As I mentioned before, I’ve got a ton of Netflix to watch. I hear they added a TON OF DISNEY MOVIES.
I’m also going to work on my novel.
AT ANY COST.
For now, we already watched the movie Piranha (apparently we will watch literally anything with Adam Scott in it), which I don’t recommend if you have a weak stomach. Or self respect.
And later we are going out for a night! on! the town! And in case you were wondering where I went in Broad Ripple a couple of weeks ago, I didn’t go. I won’t tell you until I go there. Nyaahhh!
