2:30 pm - hold me now, i'm six feet from the edge
Hola. Well kids, in just a few days I am headed out on quite a trip...literally and metaphorically. As I look back at the last year of my life, and look into the immediate future, I am so proud of how things have gone, and how they are shaping up to go.|
Now, more than ever, is when I need your prayers, good vibes, and support. I wish I could fly you all out to be with me for the next two weeks...unfortuantely my credit card DOES have a limit. :0) So, I'll just be pretending you're all there.
My love of music consumes me right now - and I am so happy this is the route I have chosen for my life. I know that whatever happens in the years to come, I will always first and foremost be a musician. It is what pours through my veins.
Hope you all are ready for summer sun and relaxtion. Hug a friend, plant a tree, revel in freedom and happiness. May we all at some point realize how truly blessed we are. Peace. JH
PS. I'll try to check in when I can, I'll be away for awhile.

8:33 pm - but i've never been wooed by a letter
Greetings lads and lassies. How goes it?|
I just got finished up with a productive band practice. I've got a show Thurs that I'm very excited about.....and I'll be even more excited if it doesn't rain. Hmm. At least the stage is covered.
I'm thinking I need to pack tomorrow, because I won't have time the rest of the week. I leave for Minneapolis on Saturday, and come home Thursday. I'm stoked for my show Sun, and to see friends. I am not stoked for the drive. But I have suffered through the state of Iowa many times before, I will do it again. :0)
I've been absent a lot lately. I promise I'm being active. Very, very active. Maybe you will all be present for the exploding of my head. Ahaha. *grin* I'll try to post again before I leave. Lovin to you all. JH

Ouch. I am in pain. I went tanning today and managed to get a sunburn on my a**. Nice one, Jess. |
It's currently yucky and rainy here. I'm getting ready to go spend some time with my cousin. I'm quite excited because I have two dear friends coming to visit me next week. That will be a nice break from insanity...er, something like that. :0)
I'm just sitting here realizing that my upcoming shows are growing closer by the second. I can't believe it's May 1st. Where does time go? Today kicks off my month of madness. I'm ecstatic.
Hope all is well in the world. JH

12:31 am - *ahem*
Ladies and gentlemen, I have an announcement to make. Today, the 21st of April, 2002, is a very special day. Nineteen years ago the world embraced one of the raddest chicks to ever come out naked and screaming. Her name is Alyssa. So, I'd just like to take a moment and say|
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALYSSA! I LOVE YOU MUCHLY.
And that is all I have for today folks. But really, who needs much more than that?

1:33 am - so i had the coolest day
I woke up this morning, so tired and just wanting to go back to sleep. I flip on the radio and hear something about front row Alanis tickets. I'm like, hi, I would be in heaven if I had those. But I never win anything from the radio, so nice try. Then I hear more about the contest. Those in the area who knew someone famous were to have the celeb call in and the person getting the biggest celeb to call won. I was like holy hell, I might have a chance. |
The people calling in were calling with local "celebs". I was like, ha, got you beat. So I made the decision to call poor Chelle at 5:30 am her time. Luckily, she is the coolest friend in the world, and was actually completely humored by the whole situation. So we schemed, we giggled, and we called.
AND I WON! FRONT ROW ALANIS! I LOVE LOVE LOVE ALANIS!
I am so excited I could pee my pants. But I won't. Lol. So anyway, my day was really cool. And the station loved me because I got Chelleness to call, and they like want me to send a cd of mine to them. Lol. I scored. So yeah. Happy girl right here. I'm tired so I'm going to sleep all day tomorrow to kill all chances of getting sick again. Yay. That's all for now. Peace. JH

I am tired. Blech. I can't ever sleep, and when I can, I don't get enough of it. But what else is new, right? I don't have anything interesting to say today (like i ever do, heh), but I just thought I should post and say I'm alive, since I haven't in awhile. Mayer is Monday, not sure if I'm going yet, but I hope so. His shows are fantastic. Well, that's about it for now. More later. JH

12:13 am - no one knows except for both of us
Wow. I just found the most beautiful live version of "Hands Clean." It's slower, and just really intimate, and it got to me a lot more than the thousands of times I've heard it on the radio. I mean, it actually brought tears. Of course, I'm sure that has nothing to do with the fact that I'm overemotional right now. Lol. I guess it just hit home. Hmm, now that could start rumers. No, I'm not dating an associate who is 20 years my senior. Heh. But it still holds a lot of truth. And I love Alanis once again. Must get the album, if I ever am not dirt poor. Don't see that happening soon though.|
Things are kind of boring right now, but I keep telling myself to enjoy the boredom, because I'll probably miss it one day. I am looking forward to Mayer in Kansas in two weeks. It's sold out, but if luck is on my side, I'll get to go. :0) Note to self: must steer clear of Matt the crazy guitarist. *giggle*
Um, I think I'll go do useful things now. Like, drop in at the MB, because I'm lost with what's going on. Did I mention I am a songwriting machine these days? I seriously have way more than enough material for a new full album. It's mad. I want to share with you all so bad. Anyhow. Hope all is well. JH

10:47 pm - your hands are in my hair but my heart is in your teeth
Howdy. Sorry for the long pause there guys. Being in Arizona, lying in the sun day after day, I just had no interest to spend time inside hunched over the computer! :0)|
I am home now and busy busy, as usual. Gearing up for some fun festivities in the coming months. I've got a gigantic show here in April, and shows in Minneapolis, Vegas, and LA in May. Yipee! So while things may seem slow, they're actually moving along nicely. I'll keep you updated as things happen.
Currently I'm hanging out here in KC, making some extra dough, what not. I believe I'll be taking a trip to LA around the end of April, but until then, I'll be here working away. It's so wonderful to see so many new people over at the message board...I can't keep up anymore! And I've been getting mounds of e-mail lately, with not much time to respond...so I apologize if you sent me an e-mail in 1876 and haven't gotten a reply yet. I'm not ignoring you, just really busy. Lol.
Hope all is well in the world! Love you muchly. JH

Hello all. How goes it? I just woke up from a splendid nap. I have a tummy ache today, icky. There are about 5464233 things I should be doing, but nothing that I want to do.

1:29 am - ahhhhh
There is so much fun involved in waiting for a phone call, let me tell you. And I am always instructed to wait for these calls so late at night. *glares at the phone* Ring, stupid phone.|
Anywho. I'd love to tell you all how amazingly exciting my life is. Nope, not the case. In fact, it's all quite irritating right now. But, I am ok. Let me tell you why. Because something amazing happened to me in the past month. I began to see my future so clearly. I see who I am, who I will be, and realized what it is in life that truly means something to me, what I care about, and what I don't. And I am happy. Forget all of the question marks, forget all of the unknowns. I know who I am. And I'm happy to be alive.
That is all for now. Back to staring at the phone. JH

12:27 am - it always comes around back to you.
Howdy ladies and gents. I do apologize for my lack of internet presence. I had a crazy week, ending with a fantastic show. We had a great turn out, and I was pleased with the performace, despite still being sick. Thanks Corinne for coming out, and for your kind words on the MB. I'm so glad you made it. :0) |
On the career front, the wheels are still turning. Not much that I'm able to comment on, but I can assure you all is going well, and I have a good feeling that 2002 is going to be a magical year for me. Whether it be stepping further into the business, or just growing as a musician, I'm pleased with how things are going so far, and am optimistic things will stay on the right track. Whoa, I sound like a horoscope. I apologize. I've been reading up on the stars lately. Have I ever mentioned I'm an astrology nut, and that my forecasts are almost always right? It's kind of creepy actually. Heh.
On the personal front, I'm feeling ok. I'm at the tail end of my cold, so I'm lots better, but still not healthy. I just need a few more days of sleeping in, which I plan on getting. I've been kind of mopey all week, as I've managed to find myself in the most difficult "romantic" situation I've ever experienced. At least I'm making good use of it and writing new songs like crazy. I'd probably not have commented on that at all, but a journal is for recording thoughts, and he has been consuming most of mine lately. So, sorry. I'll try to refrain from emotional babble as the story unfolds.
Hope all is dandy. Will check in again soon. JH

1:32 am - oh man
Well, had a bad day again. Thank you, Fuel. Heh.|
My career is in kind of a weird spot at the moment. A lot of unresolved issues. And as we all know, I am probably one of the most impatient people in the world. So, I'm about to scratch my eyeballs out. Lol. Hopefully things will improve in the next couple of days, and I'll be able to see things more clearly.
On the upside. The CD's are in. A gigantic thanks to all the pre-orders. The checks have been deposited, and when they clear in a few days, your packages will be sent. So, be on the lookout for your merch next week.
I'm singing three songs tomorrow night at a benefit event. It's going to be interesting, considering I'm still sick, and when I sing, I lose my voice. Lol. Wish me luck. Hope all is well. Big smooches to you. JH
