Letting Off Steam

When I am feeling down and out, I have a little “activity” that always seems to make me feel better. I take a pen and paper and I start writing the first words that come to my mind, and I try my best not to hesitate in scrawling them down, one word at a time. I do not scribble out the words. I do not judge the words as I write them, and I do not change the order of the words, I simply write. The writing motion is soothing, since it is repetetive and calms the nerves. Aside from that, I find that usually my mind automatically drifts toward positive things, even when I am feeling sad or angry. Seeing those positive words on the paper as I write down the first things that come to mind really boosts my positivity, and I feel back in the game again. Even more helpful to me is reading through them after they are all written, when I am all out of words or my wrist is aching, and I smile to myself because I see that life is full of ups and downs, but in the end I need to be myself, and I am the one controlling the pen. One day I hope to be able to write one of these “vent lists” with as few negative words as possible, and I hope to look at a paper filled with positive and encouraging words once I get the first few negative words off my chest.

And the best part is, I can either keep these words to myself, shred them, or use them as inspiration to create something to inspire other people.

Somehow, in this crazy world, all the good and the bad balance out to create something beautiful we might not always see at the first look.

 Happy Adventures,

I’m Tweeting (Yikes!)

  • So, I started going by my middle name in college because I've always liked it better. Now I'm Renée, and can be tweeted at "teafaellana." 3 years ago
  • I keep reading fanfics to tide me over until #OUaT is back. I can't wait to see more character development of Regina! #EvilRegals 4 years ago
  • This has somehow been the best and worst Thanksgiving I've ever had, all at once. 4 years ago

Smile about what you are thankful for, and never forget you are a dreamer.


I am a girl on a mission, and the mission I am on is to be myself. I am an undiscovered treasure, and here I am giving you a key that will allow you a little further into the labyrinth of who I am.

Heather loves hats that are designed to look like cute animals, fairy wings, cheese pizza, swimming in ponds, roller blading, taking silly self-portraits, learning, spending time with people, and just about everything else too. Heather does not love ... well, there isn't a lot that she doesn't love. You can probably figure it out after a little while!
