JoJo updated Myspace blog: Hey pals,
I’m writing this to vent a bit, Perhaps
I’m a bit overzealous to release the new material that I’ve recorded out as the process of waiting becomes increasingly agitating by the week. Friends, family, folks I meet on the street have been asking me ‘When are you coming out with something new?’ Unfortunately, I don’t have a concrete answer.
And then there’s my favorite question- ‘Are you DOING anything?’ Lol.. yes. I promise I don’t sit around on my sofa in sweatpants all day. Although I’m not on tv, magazines, radio right now- I’m still working below the radar putting the new songs together and get things ready.
I do my part and will energetically and enthusiastically continue to do so, its also very much so up to the other people involved in the behind-the-scenes aspect of my project. Its frustrating and inauspicious to feel out of control in certain areas of life, but I ultimately I believe that everything happens for a reason and will serve as a learning experience.I think that when things don’t go down exactly the way you envisioned
them happening, there is a purpose behind it. Right now, I’m throwing
myself wholeheartedly into finishing my senior year, getting into
tip-top shape (slowly but surely), painting, writing songs,
contemplating and reading movie scripts, and weighing my options
I wish I could divulge the behind-the-scenes things that are
flow of delivering the album, but it is complicated
and confusing even to me, someone who’s in middle of the whole thing. I
am still recording and still very focused on, fully committed to, and
intensely inspired by the promise of the future. I know that I’ve
learned a lot from the last few months and Im sure I’ll absorb a whole
lot more in months to come.
I believe that if/when the time comes- the waiting, the doubts, the
questions, and the wondering- will have all been worth it. I’m only 18!
I feel like my life is just beginning.. I just gotta walk in faith and
keep things in perspective.
Wheew! Just wanted to get that off my chest. Sorry if it was a little
confusing.. i know I often tend to aimlessly ramble on! lol..
Lots of love,
Btw- I am reading NIV’s ‘Women’s Devotional Bible Vol.2′ and
beginning to get into Maureen Jenning’s ‘The Map of Your Mind’. Pretty
interesting!! And I’m excited to see ‘He’s Just Not That Into You’ and ‘Madea Goes to Jail’.
I havent been to the movies in so long.. Have
you seen any good movie’s lately?
Also, now that I’m being fully random, lol- here’s an tasty salad idea
that I’ve been making massive bowls of and eating throughout the week!
been loving celery with peanut butter and raisins. YUMMMM.
Here it goes:
– ‘Nature’s Promise’ Organic Baby Spinach and Spring Mix (any kind of deep leafy green salad will do though).
-helping of sliced black olives (drained, no-pits)
– helping of grape tomatoes
– helping of small slices of apple ( I like Gala and Fuji apples!)
– helping of sliced red grapes
-helping of sliced cucumbers
-helping of chopped celery
*I say ‘helping of’ because everyone has their own preference on
how much or how little of each type of thing they like in their salad.
Put in as much as you like or omit and change to fit what you think is
tastiest. I like to try different fruits in my salads such as
strawberries, dried cranberries, dried apples, and mandarin oranges.
put all the ingredients into a big salad bowl, mix them up with my
hands (washed of course!) and then serve. I like to spritz on ‘Ken’s
Light Accents Balsamic Vinegarette’. If you try this fruity salad, let
me know how ya like it!
