Enjoying the Little Things in Life

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Pepperdine chapter.

Someone once told me to stop worrying about the future and start living in the present. As students, I think we forget to enjoy the moments because we are so busy with school work and other activities. It’s so easy to have our heads filled with so many thoughts that we ignore the simple beauty around us. We are lucky to attend school here and to have such beauty presented in front of us. Next time you’re outside, I challenge you to stop and actually enjoy the view.

Hola, mi llamo Marissa Hernandez. Hey, I'm Marissa Hernandez, and I am a senior studying Psychology at Pepperdine University. I am involved and an active member of Alpha Kappa Psi, Business Fraternity and I am currently working on campus through the theater department. I am very passionate about art and working with children. I hope to one day open my own center that is primarily focused on children and teens, through the involvement of art, sports, cooking, and other fun activities. I personally believe that community and communication with their peers who have similar interest, is the most effective way of therapy. Besides my personal interest in the future, in my free time I love to socialize with my friends, paint, eat food, and cook. I have a habit of having dinner parties every weekend about 10-15 of our closest friends, in which I cook large feast of Mexican food or other types of foods. I have an addiction to Sawtelle, in which you might catch my in the wee hours of the night getting Tatsu or wintermelon boba. I am pretty easy to find on campus, since I never go a day without wearing a single flower or a lot of flowers in my hair.
