Well, somehow in the midst of all the changes I have discovered that not much has changed. Wait, what did you say now, Heather? That’s right, not much has changed. My hair is still dirty-blonde. My eyes are still blue. I still live on a street named after a secondary color. I still have the same first, middle, and last name. My favorite color is still all of them, but mostly purple.” I still dislike drawing still lifes. I still love meeting new people. I still love my job. I still believe in Creation. I still write all-the-freaking time. I still sketch floating eyes/mouths/noses. I still can’t seem to develop a typical sleeping pattern. I still love pasta. I still love my friends.

Here’s what’s new: I have been going to a different church lately, probably because I needed a change of pace somewhere and there isn’t much about my life that I can change outside of that. I am going to be involved in Student Government (wait, what!?). The bathroom in my house is being redone. The carpet in the living room is gone. My secret place in the backyard (the really cool one with tall overgrown grasses and shrubbery and a bench) has been torn out (without my knowing). We might be getting rid of a vehicle that we’ve owned for longer than I can recall. I’m moving to the basement this summer. I have an illustration commission/job. I have a gig drawing caricatures. I reactivated my Facebook. Some of my friends are new. I have a goal to get into Antioch College in Fall of 2013. I’ve gone since September 2011 without coffee.

Happy Adventures,

    I’m sorry for that secret place of yours. And how did that go getting rid of coffee?

      Well, it wasn’t so bad really, at least not after the first month or two. I remember withdrawal symtoms as being kinda yucky, and it was hard to focus for a while. Eventually though things got better, and I felt healthier overall. Sometimes I still find myself craving coffee, but it’s not hard for me to say “no” to it anymore.

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

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!
