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?

A plague upon both your houses!

I swear I do everything to try and not get sick.

Tips: hand-washing, hand-sanitizing, regular sleeping and regular eating, avoiding sick friends like they have the plague (they really love that, let me tell you–not), and getting my flu shot.

I still managed to pick up something right before clusters week. And it was a weird one.

We all know how colds usually go–sore throat, stuffy/runny nose, feeling miserable for 3 days-week. This virus was something else. All of the sudden I got super tired and super congested, but my nose wasn’t runny. It was just like somebody stuffed my sinuses with a bunch of cotton balls and then sapped my energy like Superman in a Kryptonite factory.

AND THAT WAS IT. No sore throat, no runny nose. Just… stuffystuffysleepysleepy. For five days during clusters. Now I’m fine. So, so weird. I do appreciate not having to be a living fountain during exams, though, because it’s highly disturbing to know the person sitting near you is spewing virus particles into a tissue and probably into the air.

This is such an image-heavy post. And I’m not sorry. :D Also have you ever read about the Plague? It’s super interesting.

If you need me, I’ll be Trip-ing it on the couch.


It was just announced today that our new live mascot, Blue III, will begin his training Saturday!

Blue II is, of course, sticking around. :)

This was such big news that even NPR reported on it in a news beat!! (Note: I don’t listen to NPR normally because I’d rather drive to Foo Fighters … I was in Curtis’s car, is the short of it).

More importantly, I don’t see why this puppy isn’t on national television 24/7.

I MEAN FOR GOSH SAKE, HE HAS PINK SPOTS ON HIS NOSE. And a little patch on his eye and brindle spots on his bum and little wrinkles all over and—D’AAAWWW.

The dangerous thing is that he is scoop-up-able and he may go missing… No! No he won’t! He won’t. I’m really kidding.

HE’S JUST SO CUTE. I can’t wait to meet this little guy! (Butler security has already bugged me and will tackle me if I go within 12 feet of him, probably.)
