1:13 am - only two more weeks.........
so this has been the craziest semester ever....and why I am writing in here and not sleeping..well that is a very good question that is a very active area of research right now.HEHE. I love pepperdine but boy are my classes intense. Everyone on campus is stressed out beyond belief right now, its crazy. I think every professor teamed up this semester and said, "lets make this a really really difficult semester, cool dood" and so they did. those punks. Hmmmm I never have time to right in here anymore because I always have hw or studying. Phil and I just watched a movie in celebration of him finishing his 21 page paper that is due tomorrow for his Jurisprudence class. Poor guy. I am freaked out about my political science final. It is going to be so hard and I dont even know how to begin to study for it because its so much information. I miss everyone in riverside. I will be home in a couple of weeks!! Yay Christmas!!! Hey what are y'all gettin for Christmas??? God bless you all! Say hi whenever you can, I'd love to hear from you.

11:27 pm - finals...finals...more finals....
WOW I cant believe that my freshmen year in college is practically over. I have two more finals on thursday and then its back to reality in good ol' riverside(let's face it how can i really live in reality in Malibu) I went home today to take home most of my stuff. I didnt realize how much stuff I had here, if I wouldnt have taken a trip home today I dont think I would have been able to fit everything in my car on friday, because I packed my car today and I still have quite a bit of stuff. I am looking forward to going home, except I am going to miss my roomate so much. That is the only thing I am sad about, not being able to see cassia everyday. I love that girl so much and I am so attached to her. I didnt think I would get this close to her. Im sad that I am not rooming with her next year, not that I dont love the person I am rooming with , but I will miss cassia, we are quite the pair. It was so nice to be home today. I really enjoyed it. No one knew I was coming too, so that was cool. My mom was really excited and surprised. I like surprises.

My newest online discovery is Strong Bad. If you havent watched him yet you have too, I love him. It is the funniest thing ever. Go too http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail.html
You will never regret it. Hmmmm...what else....I am so tired. I just want to go to sleep. I think I will. I miss all of you in riverside and I am looking forward to seeing you.WEll I am off to dreamland. God bless you all!! Love Heather

12:31 pm - Canceled Class= YAAAY!!!
This morning I had an interview with my spanish teacher after class. I think it went well. We have to have four interviews with him in spanish just so he can see our progress in speaking the language. At 11am I had another advisor with the Resident Director about my application for the Spiritual Life Advisor position. It was actually a really enjoyable interview. Went by really quickly and I wasnt really nervous at all. I know that its all in the Lord's hands now and I am just praying about the position and if he wants me to have it. My english professor didnt show up today at 12 so that was aaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwweeesome!!!! YAY!! So here I am, going to catch up on some homework. GOd bless you all!! Love Heather

7:48 pm - All she wants to do is dance
Fun weekend. Friday night my friend Justin (yes i promise just friend, dont get any ideas) and I went to get something to eat off campus and then decided we wanted to go around Malibu looking at houses because there is this one on the hill that is a huge castle and its amazing, we wanted to find the road that led to it but we couldnt find it so we just went to starbucks then back to the dorm.

Saturday was "Spring Fling", which is this annual event that Pepperdines Student Gov't puts on for us and this year it was at disneyland. You could go to disneyland all day and then there was a dance at 11-3am. I just went to the dance which was at Brennans Jazz Kitchen at Downtown Disney. It was so fun. It was neet because you would think that a college dance would be all freak nasty and heathen-like but it really wasnt. Everyone was just dancing and having fun. There were like two instances where I saw a couple and I was like WHOA- hello get a room or something. They served food and it was wonderful. There was this shrimp called coconut shrimp and it was the most amazing shrimp I have ever eaten in my life. It was sooooo incredible. The weird thing is, I dont even like coconut or stuff with coconut on it, but i couldnt get enough of that shrimp. We got home soooo late (stupid time change!) It was worth it though. We had such a good time. TOday I went to the Getty Museum for two of my classes. My teachers are offering extra credit if we go.

4:43 pm - Camarillo Outlets:)
im so tired. I just got back from shopping all day with my girls Kara, Cassia and Marissa. It was so fun.So malibu-like hehe. As we were driving there in Kara's cute white BMW, Im thinking, this is so sick, why do I deserve this, these three girls are amazing, we are gonna just go and have a wonderful time shopping. It was just one of those moments where you're like "wow God is so good". THe surprising thing is, I didnt really buy anything. We went to the Camarillo Outlets. I saw these amazing jeans at Banana Republic and i wanted them so bad, but i exhibited amazing self control by not buying them, well I couldnt have controled myself without God's help. I have this horrible jeans fetish. Its really horrible. I bought a simple sea green/light turquoise tank from BeBe, because I loved the color and it was on sale for 9Bucks. My roomate went to town, which was hilarious because she is not the fashion/shopping type. She is so cute, I am going to miss her so much over the summer. I seriously dont know what I am going to do, she is my best friend. I dont know why Im so tired, I even worked out this morning so I thought that would shoot my energy level way up. We went to In n Out after shopping, Mmmm I havent eaten fast food in so long. I cant remember the last time I did.

YAY, next sunday night is our spring formal dance. It is at the Queen Mary!!!!! We tried to have prom there our junior year but it was too expensive. I am so excited it is going to be sooooooooo awesome. I just hope I can find a date. One saturday night is a Pepperdine Tradition called Spring fling, and it is going to be at disneyland and then from 11pm - 3Am there is going to be a dance somewhere in disneyland, I am not sure where, but its going to be great. Student government gives out 200 free tickets and there are 50 tickets that are sold for 40 dollars so wednesday night everyone camps out in the quad to wait in line for the tickets because its like a huge deal. Its going to be crazy. SO if all goes well, I will have spring fling on saturday night and then Queen Mary formal on Sunday night. But I am not sure if I will be able to get a ticket for spring fling, so we will see, because it sounds really crazy getting tickets.

I want my dad to come this wednesday to hang out with me. He said he wants to but he is so busy with work, so I am just praying that he will be able to. He said he might be able too.

8:33 pm - you scream like a girl
Took a religion test today and it was really hard. I studied so much for it too and I dont even know if i pulled even a B on it. So that really sux. I didnt go to spanish class today because I stayed up until 2 am studying. Then i didnt go to humanities either because I hate that class and I just didnt feel like dealing with it. So I just kinda relaxed all day it was really nice.

Yesterday my mom came out here to hang out with me. It was so awesome. We went to Gladstones for lunch, it is a place on pacific coast highway and it has amazing clam chowder. After we ate there we went to santa monica to walk around and go shopping. It was really great. I wasnt really expecting to buy anything but I ended up getting four shirts which was really cool because there are soooooo many sales going on right now because stores are making room for spring merchandise.

Then we went to the beach and watched the sunset and it got kinda cold so we headed to Starbucks after that. My mom is so wonderful, she totally treated me yesterday and it was just so awesome. I was sad when she had to leave.

My friend stopped by last night to say hi and I hadnt seen him in a while so that was cool. The most hilarious thing happened last night when ryan, kelly and I were studying. I saw a beetle crawling towards kelly so i said "hey you guys there is a spider right there so kill it, " and being the pro-life bug people they are they say "no dont kill it just put it outside." So ryan trying to be the manly man that he is, tries to get the beeetle to crawl onto a piece of paper but it wont crawl onto it and it starts to spread its wings like its going to fly away so all three of us start shrieking and freaking out. It was so funny. I was lauging so hard. THen ryan takes this big poster and grabs the beetle with it and yells "OKAY OPEN THE DOOR HURRY!" and he runs out the door and throws the wadded up poster as hard as he can, then exhausted, he runs back in and sprawls on the couch, then I say "ryan its right there!!!" and he screams like a five year old girl. OMIGOSH it was so funny, plus it was like 1 in the morning so everything is extra funny at that time.

6:04 pm - friends are special.
I had a great weekend. On Friday at 2pm just as I got out of my english class I rush out to the parking lot to find my sweet little friend Brittney Spears....jk Brittney Pluim, but I like to call her Britney Spears. She drove 85 miles to malibu to visit me. I was sooo happy. I showed her around campus and introduced her to my favorite people here and we planned to go to dinner later with a bunch of people. Amanda Sowder also came over (Amanda Sowder gave her life to Christ at like the beginning of this school year and is like a totally different person now, the change is incredible) At about 7:30 on friday night about 10 of us girls went to P.F. Changs which is this really amazing chinese restraunt. FOr those of you who have not had the luxary of eating there, I highly recommend it, it sure puts Ho HO's to shame!!! After dinner we went back to pepperdine and just kinda hung out and talked.

Saturday morning Brittney and I went to breakfast and then walked down to the beach and Old Malibu Road that is at the bottom of this awesome trail that I jog. We also went walking around the neighborhood to look around at all of the amazing houses. It was really fun, and kinda tiring, those hills...man! She had to leave at 12 because she had to work at 5. I loved hanging out with her. I really miss brittney, she is a changed girl also. SUch a blessing pleasant Godly girl to be around. I cant wait to go home so I can spend more time with her.
Saturday night I went to see one of the student directed plays here at pepperdine called "A Look Back at Anger". It was a very long show but I loved it. It was 3 hours and fifteen minutes long, and i thought I was going to be bored out of my mind, but I loved it. Marc didnt like it as much as I did. Free starbucks on sat night too because eric was working !! YAY, tastes better when its free:) On sunday went to church in the morning and that was nice. Today went to class and read a book and worked out and now here I am! Its been good. Hope you aall are doing well. I am going back to riverside for summer in exactly one month from today! See you all very soon!

8:32 pm - Please and Thank You.
this week has been ok. Better than last week I think except for the fact that I had a Humanities test today. Humanities is the worst class ever. I have a C in that class right now and I study more for that class than I have ever studied for any class and its still the lowest grade ive gotten ever. Its absolutely ridiculous. I am kinda scared about the war and biological warfare. I know that ultimately God is in control of my life and I love that, but I am still kinda scared sometimes. My school is having a candlelight prayer service tonight in the amphitheatre so that should be great. I am going to stop by the coffeehouse and get some hot chocolate before I go over there. I have been choking for like that past half hour and its really bad. I dont know what is wrong with me but yesterday I woke up with some cough or something. I dont really feel that horrible but I cough a lot and its like that nasty crackly phlemy cough. Yea its really gross. I have been working a lot, well a lot more than I usually do. Last night Jeremy Camp and Bebo Norman were at my school, That was night. Jeremy Camp is so hot and so amazing. I want to marry someone like him. He is just so awesome. His arms are HUGE, when he strums his guitar his muscles flex and its very impressive. Tomorrow Brittney might come out here. I will be sooooooooooooo excited if she does. I really hope she does. I know I have a lot of homework, but I dont care I just want her to come over. That will make friend number 2 and a half that has come to pepperdine (breanna and amanda sowder, but amanda didnt really come to see me she came to see jeremy camp so I didnt really get to show her around and hang out with her, so that only counts as half.) I was so excited to see amanda yesterday though. WOW talk about a dramatic conversion, she is definitely not the same girl I knew in high school. I love her so much, she calls me a lot, and I really want to hang out with her more but I am soooooooooo busy with school work and stuff. I find out tomorrow night if I won sophomore senator. I will let you guys know if I win. Well I am off to candle light prayer service. God bless you all . and God bless this country.

1:03 pm - about a 35-50 minute wait
Last night my friend Kara and I went to dinner at my favorite restaurant, The Cheesecake Factory. I LOVE THAT PLACE. It is so amazing. I have never actually eaten cheesecake there but the food is amazing. It was so scary on the way there because it was pooring, and i mean POOOOOOOOOORRRRRRIIIIIIING. We had to drive through Malibu Canyon which is this really dangerous, windy mountainlike road, and there are rock slides and mudslides. But i was craving Cheesecake Factory sooooooo bad and we didnt want to stay in on a saturday night so we went. We waited an hour to be seated but it was so worth it. I just love Kara she is so sweet and so caring. On friday night I didnt have the best night and that topped off my not so good week, but Kara and Cassia brought me a dozen roses to cheer me up! Is that not like the sweetest thing ever?!!! I was so excited and the roses are beautiful. They are multicolored. I love'em. So dinner was a great time for Kara and I to bond. It was really nice. Today I am going to study for Humanities and make some signs for my campaign since I am running for sophomore senator. I really need to do laundry also. YIKES. Okay have a good day. Love heather. GOd bless you all.

9:18 pm - sweet high school simplicity
went to ralphs tonight. Very sad, the New Yoplait WHIPS! are $1!! That is crazy, I love those too, but i refuse to pay that much. That is just plain robbery. So I bought one Lunchable ( was starving), a box of Frosted Flakes, abba zabba, and Cajun Spicy Pringles. YUM, never shop when you are hungry. My mom always told me that but i didnt listen. Abba zabba's are really good. I didnt used to like them and josh used to eat them all the time and I would always ask for a bite and then end up eating the rest of it, and he didnt even get mad. That is one of the really good things about josh, he is not a selfish person at all as far as sharing material stuff.

I love my dad so much. I had a ruff morning and something happened with my scholarships and I was like stressing out so much and I called my dad and he totally took care of everything, while he was busy at work. What an awesome guy. I was just so thankful for his help. He means the world to me. He went through so much when he was growing up, he had nothing, and now he just treats me like a princess and i dont even deserve it.

I am so tired today from my run yesterday. Although i felt good afterwards, today I felt so tired and 5 miles is not really that much. But i was just physically and emotionally drained today. Cassia and her boyfriend are so cute. ITs so sick, it really is, but I love hearing the stories, but it makes me wish I had someone. Oh well someday.

Kendall I miss you too:)

7:58 pm - Mind over matter
today was so great. Started out great...got kinda hectic but then got wonderful. I had three classes today. My suitemate that lives next door is such a sweetheart. She is definitly a southern bell, cute accent and all. Well she has the cutest clothes and she has this one shirt that i LOVE and yesterday she came in and said " Hey heather you know that pink shirt that you like?, well you can have it because i dont like it, it doesnt fit me right" I was like "are you crazy??!!" so she gave it to me! That is like on of the cutest shirts ever, I love it. That was so nice of her.

Today I was contemplating on not working out but I forced myself to go down there and I am so glad that I did. I usually run three miles a day but today God just totally blessed me and I ran 5 miles! It felt so good. I loved it, I want to do it everyday. I hope i am not sore tomorrow. I was running with my friend erin and she is wonderful. I know God just totally put her there to bless me and we were both able to run so much longer because of each other's presence and company. It was wonderful. Running is totally psychological and if you can conquer the mind thing you can pretty much run for a long time.

11:01 pm - take yourself on a date
tonight i just felt the urge to go to the movies so I did. I went all alone too. It was great. I dont mind spending time alone. I dont think i want to be alone for the rest of my life but i dont mind it. I went and saw chicago, again. It was even better the second time. I love that movie. I dont agree with the immorality in it, but i love the dancing and the singing. YAY school tomorrow! not. school sux. blech. Ohwell, praise the Lord that i am able to come here. Well GOd bless you all. Love heather

1:35 pm - if you want to
Today is a good day. God is so good to us. I had lunch with some awesome people today, and as we were eating and conversing, I was just noticing and thinking of how thankful i am to be here at Pepperdine. The people are wonderful. We were just sitting and talking about the Lord and how trusting him will lead us, and it was just so amazing. I go to this school where people love the Lord and want to fulfill his will and I get to be with them and be encouraged by them.

There is this one guy that I have known for a while, his name is Brandon. Dont worry he has a girlfriend I am not after this guy. But he is one of the most amazing guys I have met since I have been at Pepperdine. I admire him so much. He loves the Lord with all of his heart, and he is here for the right reasons and just from hearing him talk for a while I could see his heart and where his priorities are. He is just a genuinly pure, good, selfless guy. Thank the Lord for guys like him. Thank the Lord for guys like Jesus.

2:11 pm - He Had It Coming
This past week has been kinda hectic. I had a spanish midterm on friday, a huge religion test on thursday and a paper due on Friday for my english class. I am so thankful for the weekend. Last night my friend I went to Chili's, then to Cold Stone for dessert, and then to the movies. It was really fun. I dont get to go out and have fun like that that often because i always have so much homework. I ended up getting a 90% on my religion test so that was good, hopefully next time it will be even higher. Last time I got at 76% so 90% was an improvement. I am excited to see what I get on my spanish midterm. I only have 7 weeks of school left. I am kinda sad because I love it here, but i guess it will be kinda nice to have my room back, since my little brother is living in there right now.

current mood: chipper
