I am in my room right now and I am about to go to sleep. But before I shut my eyes and go to dreamland, I wanted to give everybody a small update of the things that are going on. The past 2 weeks I've been home - I enjoy being home for a while so I can spend time with my family and friends. Tomorrow however, I will be going to Hilversum (The Netherlands) to finish a song I started with a very talented and well-known Dutch producer/songwriter John Ewbank. It was very nice to finally work with him - we had a lot of fun. I even gave us the nickname "Double Dutch" (do you get it?). Next week, I am gonna go to the States to finish up my album :-). I am so excited about this!!You know when artists say that their album feels like their baby? Well, now I know why they say that, because it really feels like one, haha! I am so proud of it and want to show it off badly hahaha ;-)."
