Well life here seems to get crazier and crazier every week.  I wouldn't change one second of it! Lots and lots has been going on around Biola and in my life since the beginning of this month. Here's a few things I've been doing:
-November 7 was MIDNIGHT MADNESS! It was crazy, super fun, I got to dance(kinda!) and there was red and white confetti! It was pretty much High School Musical Biola edition:)
-Because we won 2nd place for our door for Candyland, we got a really cool cupcake maker! It's a little oven type thing that bakes 6 cupcakes in 10 minutes...right in our room! It's really exciting! :)
-No Sugar November has not been as bad as one would think.  (It was a bit more of a challenge at Chrysalis but I survived!) I'm going to get frozen yogurt with Ari in 10 days! I went to the gym everyday this last week.
-I've been having lots of lunch and dinner dates which is one of my favorite parts of college!
-Chrysalis was absolutely amazing! The Holy Spirit did SOOOOOO much work in just 72 hours(as usual!).  I had so much fun being weekend coordinator with the fabulous Stephanie Sharp:) Although I've never been so exhausted after working a weekend before! Despite my exhaustion, I loved every moment of it!!
-The homework never seems to end! I've been reading, studying, and writing papers like there's no tomorrow.  Very much looking forward to Christmas break! Unfortunately, Thanksgiving break will only be an excuse to go home, not to stop doing homework:( Mom wants to do crafts while I'm home, I  must write 4 papers and study for 2 tests. I will do both!
-On Tuesday night the caf served a Thanksgiving dinner.  My floor wore Indian headbands and went as a "family". 'Twas lovely! The caf was CRAZY CROWDED!!
-On Wednesday my floor had a worship night and bonfire out on McNally field!!! It was soooooo much fun! :) I've been wanting to go to a bonfire so I got to hang with my Soul Sisters, listen to Ari play guitar and sing(SO AMAZING!), worship, and smell the fire. Such a great night!...Then I stayed up until 3am studying for a test! hehe
-This past Friday I went to Disneyland with my roommates and our RA Kelsey.  It was so much fun and super magical! Going to Disneyland at Christmas time definitely puts you in the Christmas spirit!
-Soooo yesterday my roommates, Hannah and Ciara, and I had a lovely day of bonding and spending time together:) We went to the library for 5 hours to study and get work done, went to the football playoff game to watch some friends play, and then went to WalMart to get some decorations for our room. We came home and put lights up(SO MAGICAL!) and painted on stockings all while listening to Christmas music and had the virtual fireplace burning. We will be decorating our door soon:)
-I taught 3rd graders today at church. They are definitely not my grade.  It makes me so sad how important "stuff" is to those 8 year olds.  Today they said they are thankful for their iTouch and the internet.  What about family, a warm place to sleep, or health? So sad.  I think I like the little ones better ;)
-My beautiful friend Sarah "flo" Martin will be coming to visit me tomorrow! I am so very excited! Then she is taking me home Tuesday afternoon for Thanksgiving break.  I can't wait to see my family, hopefully some friends, do crafts(and write papers!), and eat delicious food!!

I hope life is treating you all well as you prepare for the upcoming holiday season! Find joy in all God has blessed you with and all you do. Be thankful for the loved ones in your lives.
In His Unfailing Love,
