Been doing some big steps to change my life completely… I am physically “dancing” with exercise videos on Hulu plus. There must be over 30 different routines to choose from. As I am getting “smarter”, I am not blaming myself for my sick brain anymore. For years, I thought if I was just more intelligent, I could outthink myself into a very rich lifestyle. I wasn’t the rich city dream girl I used to be. Ouch that stings a lot. Admitting and worrying about the past is a super way to lose control. It must be the right time for the spirit inside my body to be free from old habits and freak out when victory has come to play.
Moving from San Francisco to Michigan was huge deal for me and that I’m forever grateful that I found Matthew. Yesterday was our nine year anniversary and we both are at the peaks of the good life. We had a very tight long hug last night. That was more special then roses, candy or even diamonds (if you could doubt that I am addicted to fine gems). I even received a hand massage for a time and we fell asleep like we always do, we hold each others hands and allow my dog Boomer under the sheets. Like a family. Thanks be to the one and only higher power that opens my eyes every morning at 4:00 a.m.

On the first day of my job, I walk into a production studio to hand in paperwork. A young gentleman stands up to shake my hand when I walk into the room. "Wow! You are tall." he states. I point to my heels of my shoes. "Wow! You are short." Laughter lights up the room.

With an electric soul of an artist, Heather Deogracia, has an interesting personality that uses her manic branches of her mind to express her sense of humor, expand the creative hourly illustration addiction and continually read big books about artistic principles, elements and glorious techniques to feed her intellectual capabilities.

Proud to start staging a background of her latest achievements, Heather was on the front page Sunday Feature in the Midland Daily News on Oct. 19, 2016 and is an Award-Winning Fine Artist for the state-wide competition Legacy Trust Award Collection for the past three years in a row.

She has earned a 2017 Leadership of Bay County Achievement Award from Studio 23 and a Midland County Art Letourneau Award for "Collaboration and Creativity in Community Support".
A harshly educated woman, Deogracia spent five years to earn a double major Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Medical Illustration in Pre-Medicine and Fine Art at California State University in San Bernardino. At the same time period, she held down three jobs as an Intern for the District Attorney, Graphics Editor for the college weekly newspaper and created the Peer Health Education program.
Her artistic talents covered in the fine studio art requirements included painting, color theory, graphic design, photography, figure drawing, advanced drawing, watercolor, sculpture, illustration and art portfolio assignments to keep work organized. In the sciences, she has a background in chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, advanced human anatomy and psychology, biology, genetics, comparative animal psychology, marine biology and medical microbiology.

The new true story is about a suicidal bipolar woman that is prescribed Ritalin at the age of 38 and she reverts back to her glory days of her life. The truth is that no one knows the past is killing her mind.
