Cathryn ’14 RSS feed

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?

Netflix, you magnificent patoot

I don’t know if anyone noticed, but Netflix just unleashed THE MOST MAGNIFICENT LINEUP OF NEW STREAMING CONTENT EVER.

I found out sometime last week that The Powerpuff Girls was on and I was like “oh.em.gee.” Talk about a blast from the past. I didn’t get a chance to log on and look for several days (see: my life last week), but my mind started racing with the possibilities that Cartoon Network just opened a contract with Netflix. What if they had Dexter’s Laboratory? What if they had Samurai Jack? Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends? JOHNNY BRAVO?

All. of the. Above.

EVEN BETTER, they have 26 episodes of ADVENTURE TIME.

We have a problem though.

A very big problem.

Netflix. Listen to me. Everyone on semesters in universities across the country are TRYING TO WRITE PAPERS, TAKE EXAMS, AND FINALS RIGHT NOW. Could you have waited one stinking month to release these magnificent shows?

(If cartoons aren’t your thing, they also released: Hatfields vs McCoys, Witness, The Mask of Zorro, The Hunger Games, and a ton of other things I’m too excited to be bothered to remember right now.)

Netflix you are the biggest patoot in the world.


The time for figuring out our rotations preferences HAS BEGUN.

For those of you new to the whole pharmacy school thing, here’s how it goes. You do four years in the professional phase of the pharmacy program, and the last of those four years is spent on experiential rotations. These are 10, four week rotations at various sites where we’ll shadow a pharmacist.

And I already know three of mine.

Our electronic scheduling machine (I have no better way to phrase it) just opened this week, but I was placed with my special request for openings at the Cincinnati VA! I AM SO PUMPED. I’ll be doing an ambulatory care, critical care, and psychiatry rotation there!

And the reeest I’m not sure about. I think I’ll be doing one at Butler doing research, and I definitely want to experience long term care. Then I want to do some areas that I know I’ll never work in but I definitely want to experience, like cardiology and nutrition support. I’ve been tinkering with the scheduling here and there, but it’s due next week so I have to make my mind up!

I do know that my expectations are that rotations will be like Scrubs. And every preceptor is Dr. Kelso.

For those of you who are fans of Scrubs, I’m waaay more afraid of Kelso than I am of Cox. I wouldn’t be able to listen to Cox’s tirades for longer than two seconds. Kelso though? He has concise and heartless insults! :( (That show is so great and I think most if not all of it is on Netflix!)

Post-semester Field Study

[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.


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!

An ode to PDA

Once upon a time, COPHS decided to make a class called Principles of Drug Action. Most schools teach pharmacology, medicinal chemistry, and toxicology separately. Most schools are normal. Butler is not. Butler combined those classes all into one and we take it all four years of pharmacy school.

But there was a lot of studying before that. And, of course, food.

This is me weeping over a 2 liter of Mountain Dew.

We ordered Greek’s Pizza while studying in Jordan Hall. We had no plates. So we used pieces of notebook paper because we are classy.

If our faces aren’t any indication, it wasn’t just eating greasy (but delicious) pizza off of paper that was making us upset. Studying for our last PDA final was absolutely dreadful. And finding out 90 minutes before the test that there were essay questions was unpleasant.

But! It is over! I am done with this semester! Let the Netflix marathon and Christmas shopping BEGIN!
