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?” And 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- but 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 overall. I wish I could divulge the behind-the-scenes things that are interrupting the 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,
