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?

Worst Blizzard Ever

Two “winter storms” have rolled through, pouring ice over our fair city.

Then temperatures above freezing have just obliterated all sense of urgency about the whole thing and it’s really just not been all that intense.


Just to prove that we leave the house for things other than class/work, we went across the street to Target.

And found these awful decorations.

First of all, that’s a giant “vintage” butterfly plastered onto a lampshade. And apparently anything remotely “vintage” looking can be embroidered onto anything and it can get sold in Targets nationwide. Sigh.

At least Curtis found these amazing Sylvester Stallone-in-the-movie-Cobra(?)-sunglasses.

ALSO my “happy clusters and belated birthday” package of stuff I ordered came today so I’m contented. Now for a long and arduous weekend of staring at my laptop and hoping I can retain at least a shred of information about pharmacy law and oncology.


In my state of hermit zen I have not gone out unless it was super important, and that means I haven’t had too much trouble with shopping crowds. I was lucky enough to not have to leave during our “blizzard” the day after Christmas, which also meant I was skipping out on all of the wild and crazy post-Christmas sales.

I have to grind my teeth a bit when all of the commercials push more and more shopping after we’re all reeling from the holiday shopping. But fine!

I will say I do partake in my favorite pastime, which is waiting for all the Christmas stuff to go on super sale and buying everything I need for the following year. There’s usually only a few things we have to get before Christmas that we have to get at full price (like lights!), but the rest I like to wait and see how cheap we can get.

Like today at Target, we got gift bags for like twenty five cents each. And I bought a desktop light up dove for five bucks. We also got a zillion yards of gaudy tinsel for a dollar a piece.

I named it Helga.

So bottom line, treat yourself to some Christmas stuff because it’s amaaazingly cheap right now. And next year you’ll be like “I’m so glad I got this!” TRUST ME. :D

It’s officially too hot outside!

We planned on keeping our air conditioner turned off during the spring. You know, spring time, when it’s around 60-70 degrees and flowers bloom and bees buzz and ducks quack and sun shines and rain … rains.

But this is straight up summer, Weather, and we’ve had several talks about how much I hate it when you mess up my seasons.

It is currently 81 degrees and the air is stagnant here in Indianapolis. The sun went away, finally, but let me tell you: it is hot! It could be worse–at least it isn’t humid (although, give it about three weeks and we’ll be swimming across campus).

What I will say is that I enjoyed walking across campus and seeing everybody in their springtime best. To everyone who wears brightly colored pants: I salute you. They look snazzy as all get out.

What I’m wondering is, when will it be okay for men to wear colored pants? I see them on sale everywhere, but I can’t seem to get past the idea that they only belong in a Vampire Weekend music video.

Target’s got the right idea.

For the record, if men in brightly colored suits poofed me into 5 inch wedges, I would probably fall over and die.

10 Reasons I’m not doing Black Friday

First of all, it’s my brother’s birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JONATHAN!

Second of all, I just realized when I do these blitzkrieg posts, I utterly SPAM the gobutleru Twitter with my drivel. I’m oddly proud.

Right, top 10 why I’m not doing Black Friday.

10. I need my sleep.

9. I have no money.

8. It’s snowing, I think. And if it’s snowing, that means the 3 inches of rain we just got are making the roads ice-skating rinks.

7. Wal-Mart had a Ronco knife set on sale, online only, from 5am to 11am this morning. It was $20. That beats getting in my car and fighting people to get a knife set, which I guess would actually be pretty cool. So that was my Black Friday purchase this morning… on Thanksgiving.

6. Tryptophan. I am not wrestling a soccer mom for BOGO juniors sweaters at Macy’s after a 1,000 calorie meal. Not enough coffee in the world could motivate me for sweaters at 4 AM.

5. Getting trampled. I don’t want to get trampled.

4. Clusters are next week and I can’t sustain a head injury.

3. I haven’t put together my Christmas gift list for people. No point in buying things if I don’t know what I’m buying.

2. I can’t be bothered getting dressed and going out in–oh–an hour and a half from now.

1. Mom and I are going to work out at the rec center tomorrow. I’m going to run so far and so fast that I’ll get immediately (and illegally) drafted into the Bengals. Because they play like girls. EYOH!!

I love you, crazy Target lady!

Sooo yeah. Not doing Black Friday. Never have done it, and I’m not starting this year. I just heard a car going up the street and I bet they’re going to Target.
