What an incredible rush of excitement! I can almost still feel the biting cold of driving through the city with the top down at 11pm when the temperature must have been no higher than 32 degrees. I can faintly hear the orchestra playing as they harmonized amongst each other. The awe and wonder that struck me while watching the ballet dancers perform Romeo & Juliette from a box seat lingers in the front of my mind. I can taste the bagel, vegan chili, and Steamer (steamed milk, honey, and vanilla) from the little café that I can’t recall the name of. Such magic surrounds me when I open myself up to it.

That was only one evening from my recent adventures. I’ve painted with new mediums, experienced hot yoga, tasted new tea, eaten the rind of a cantaloupe, sang with a complete stranger while walking down a city street, and delved deeper into who I am as a person and who I would like myself to be. I’ve also lost 5lbs, which isn’t exactly something I was trying to do. I was invited to move to Portland, Oregon next December (I politely turned them down…for now. Too many adventures I need to have here, first.). I was invited to go to Maine for a month this summer and volunteer my time and artistic talents to support a worthy cause.

I have also received in the mail the single-most important and incredible letter I have gotten in my life to this day.

Soon. I will tell you soon.

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." 8 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 8 years ago
  • This has somehow been the best and worst Thanksgiving I've ever had, all at once. 9 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!
