Time to come around [19 Feb 2003|03:18pm]
[ mood | alright ]

Well I guess I should really update. I've been very busy lately and with Valentine's Day and all the weekend sales,..let's just say I haven't had time these days.

But, that all changed when I logged on to my offical fan club message board this morning, and came across from pretty mean messages. Most of the fans were pretty upset that "How To Deal" was pushed back until July, and no matter how disappointed I am about that, there is nothing I can do about that. I didn't understand where all their statements were coming from, but I will say this...

I'm sorry that being "fan" of mine is so depressing. Quite frankly, I'm getting depressed by reading post after post addressed to me in this manner. I've felt over that past few months, people on this site have been so against me. Sure, I haven't been in the limelight for the last couple of months.....most of that has been intentional (taking a break/vacation and working too). I would never neglect something that fulfills me so. Please don't ever second-guess me in that sense. I'm not slacking or giving up my life to become "a regular kid"....if you can even use the word. But gimme a break! Ok, so "How To Deal" has been pushed back to July. Do I even have an ounce of say in the matter? No. The film company has their reasons and I respect that they will do what's best for the film. As for the others.....I'm just as out of the loop as you are. But, they'll be out soon....you needn't worry. And I'm fully aware that some of the music in the past wasn't properly marketed, etc......Don't you think I, more than anyone, was upset and discouraged by the lack of support in that department? YES! However, I have to look past that and move on to creating or being a part of bigger and better things.....otherwise I might be sitting here like some of you, dwindling upon something i can't fix. I did my job. So, I decided upon developing a concept album (you remember..I mentioned this before) because I didn't want to be the umteemph teenage "singer-songwriter" releasing music in the past 2 years. Believe me, I've been writing music that I am totally passionate about and am a fan of those artists....but I loved the idea of presenting "older" music that I've recently discovered to you guys in maybe a more relatable manner. Could it be a mistake? Maybe! Could it be successful? Let's hope so. The point is, I'm willing to risk it. I so dearly love the music of Carly Simon, Joan Armatrading, The Waterboys, Joe Jackson, Elton John, etc......that I'm so down for taking the chance. I can only hope that my "fans" are willing to give it a try. All I ask is for your patience, support, and trust. You'll see.....believe me.

Hmmm lucky me, I was lurking 'round the board to find just the question I wanted to address........I'm sure by now you all have heard about the "concept" of the new album. In my opinion.....it's very exciting and I don't regard it as a "mistake" as some of my fans have referred to it as. Believe me, it was a very thought-out idea and eventually choice. I'm sure many of the songs we have recorded, some/most of you haven't heard of before. Anywho........we have 9 songs done at this time. I've been in the studio for the past 6 days and done 1, sometimes 2 songs a day. One Cat Steven's song was done in 40 minutes...Heh, I'm getting good ;) I LOVE the way the record sounds at this point.....fluid, yet every song has a different and concise direction......jazzy, acoustic, 70's funk, etc........ Can't wait to get you some samples. Until then..we'll just have to wait and see. Haven't been online much cause of work and I was sick for a good while.

I have so much more to talk about, but I think I practically drained myself. I made a new layout for myself, which pretty much distracted my attention. Oh, before I head out, I want to say one thing...

I am still single, and almost hating it ;)

*grins* Well..Mission accomplished.

love always,
Mandy

[ mood | contemplative ]

this morning i ate some breakfast at a little cafe outside of toronto. it was nice and quiet and the whole mood of the place was peaceful. normally i don't go out alone much, but this morning i just wanted some time by myself. a lot has been going on lately. and i'm unsure of how things are going with shane and i. it's not that we don't get along, because we do. and it's not like our relationship is on the rocks, really. i just don't know how to explain it.
anyways i ordered myself a muffin and a cappuccino and sat at a little table by the window. it was a rainy day, in more ways than just the weather. i found myself staring out the window for long periods of time. and then this older man tapped me on the shoulder. he asked if anything was wrong. i didn't really feel comfortable spilling out my feelings to a complete stranger, so i just shrugged it off and said everything was fine. and then he told me that i should turn that frown upside down and slap on a smile. now that's something no one has told me before. normally people tell me to get my cheesy grin off my face. i nodded as he walked back over to his own table and soon after walked up and got outta there.
and on the way back to the hotel i realized that really i have nothing to be sad about. i just need some time to talk to shane and see what exactly is going on. i need to see if he still feels the same way about me as he did a while ago. i hope he does because truthfully, i love him. more than he probably knows.

[ mood | blah ]

needless to say i'm not 'miss social' around here. i try..i mean i make posts. i try and talk in chats sometimes. but i guess it's just not working. it's my own fault. and i'm not craving for attention. i'm just stating the facts. i don't know what to do to make you guys like me. i shouldn't have to do anything, but yeah..
i'm just really confused about everything. friends, shane, stuff...blah. i don't know anymore. i can't keep up.

I'm a mobile
Hanging from the ceiling
Life's a mobile
Spinning 'round with mixed feelings
Crazy and wild
Sometimes I wanna scream out loud


[hi. i'm considering giving mandy up. i mean she really doesn't have a storyline. maybe that's my fault. but anyways maybe there is someone out there who can actually play her well here since i'm not doing that great of a job. no this isn't goodbye it's just a fair warning. thanks]

I'm in Hawaii on a little vacation. It's nice because this is my first one in four years. That's a long time to go without a break, and I've just been stressed out. Hawaii is nice and peaceful, and I can really relax here. Which is exactly what I needed.
I've been looking at the most recent pictures of Shane and I. I love my baldy *dies*. Okay, he isn't bald. But still. Anyways I can't wait until we head off to Australia to promote AWTR. We'll be able to spend a lot more time together, even if it is just for a couple days. I like being around him. He makes me laugh over stupid stuff that I can't imagine talking to anyone else about. And we get to play bumper crotch *dies*.
And I'm gonna make an icon of me and baldy. I mean Shannon. I mean Shane *dies* :x. Woops.

Okay hold on to your knickers, I'm updating *DIES*

Nothing really exciting is going on in my life. Work's good. Shane's good. Everything's good. I hope to God I'm not jinxing myself. Knowing me and my luck, I am. So..*knocks on wood*.

MTV Movie Awards are soon. I'm really really excited. My first time I'm nominated for a golden popcorn for breakthrough performance inAWTR! Woo! *laughs* But I'm up against Britney. And ANNE! Oh gosh. Both are amazing, I'm just honored to be in the same category as them both. A Walk To Remember was so much fun. And hey, that's where I met Shane :) Anyways..good luck Brit and Anne as well ;)

Sadly.. I have nothing else to say. But I expect a lot of comments because HEY! I UPDATED! *laughs*

[ mood | flirty ]

So tonight was the Kids Choice Awards. If any of you watched, you saw that I am brunette again. :D I still have my choppy haircut, but hey, it's not so bad, is it?
Dorothy is now my best friend. Hopefully now that I'm in Cali, we can get together and go boy hunting or something *laughs*. We need it, girl! The nun outfits just wouldn't look right on us! And you gotta let me in your house. *coughs*you'resoluckyyoulivewithtwocuteboys!*coughs*. That is all.
Now I'm off to go take a nice shower! My ears are ringing from all those kids yellin' *laughs*. I'll be around later, maybe.

What better to do on a blah day but SHOPPING. *laughs* So yeah, maybe I went a little overboard, but nothing a normal girl wouldn't do at the mall. Oh well, I felt I needed to escape for a bit, and no one else was around so, the mall it is. I have red marks on my arms from holding all my bags *laughs*. I must have had atleast 12 or 13 bags. ATLEAST.
Right now, once again, I'm single. And happy to be single. I just don't think I was ready for anything quite yet. But who says I don't already like a couple people ;) Some may be here. And some not. I don't think I'll be acting upon them, though. Just eye candy for now *laughs*. Aren't I in a better mood than I have been lately? I think so...

Oh and Dorothy is awesome. :) That is all.

[ mood | annoyed ]

Okay, yes the breakup was mutual. We didn't click and it just wasn't working out between us. I'm not really that upset about it, I know it was for the best anyways.
I can't help but mention him flirting in the chat and in comments didn't help the situation. Especially looking back in the chat and seeing it going on like a minute after we called it quits. He can deny he was flirting all he wants, but it still hurt.
I'm gonna go lay down or something. It's just been a crappy day. Thanks Brit and Janie for..well. They know.

Life goes on.
