Hello from Germany!!! Can you believe I am on the other side of the world? It has been really cold and rainy here and I am hungry! I am the pickiest eater in the world and I am craving a chicken fried steak with a lot of gravy!!!
It is really amazing to see the world and realize how differently we all live…it is really cool! We flew from Canada to Amsterdam which took forever and landed at like 7:30 in the morning and then went straight to the hotel to sleep…we got up around 4:00pm and headed out to see the city…it is like you are in a dream here…everything is so different! I feel like I am in a movie…speaking of movies, we went to see Sixth Sense and the movies are like months behind the states but what a great movie Sixth Sense is…i love it! Speaking of Sixth Sense, you must watch my video on Feb 14th premiering on making the video on MTV…hint, hint.
We went on a canal ride which was cool looking at all the old buildings which were built in the 1600’s, then we went to Anne Frank’s house which I really enjoyed because The Diary of Anne Frank, which was one of the books I read in school. I could not imagine staying in that room for 3 years the way she did, hiding from the Nazi’s…we have so much to be thankful for…don’t take it for granted! I have to remind myself all the time to have a thankful heart no matter what the situation!! Today I had a taping for MTV Amsterdam, a photo shoot and six interviews then we are driving to Germany so that is where I will be by the time you read this. So let me fill you in on all the other things that have happened since I last talked to you guys…I made a video…Where You Are…with Nick.
Leelee Sobieski and Chris Klein who are the stars in the movie that the song is going to be on “Here On Earth”, were also in the video…they were really cool and Leelee is very beautiful and Chris is a cutie! Making videos is a lot of hard work but also a lot of fun…Nick and I have some really great scenes together which I LOVED doing…I am not giving away secrets…you have to watch and then request the heck out of it!!!! Of course I know you guys will…you are the best! The shoot took two days and then the next morning after the video we went to Big Bear and hosted MTV Snowed In…Nick and I host the battle of videos/boys against girls/ and I can’t tell you who wins but watch…Feb 5…we also got to perform “Where You Are” with a great crowd of fans…thanks for all of your support! Snowmobiling was the funniest!!! I am tired and randomly talking…can you tell? The next day was a photo shoot for Seventeen, Nick and I will be on the cover for April…Nick was a little upset because I encouraged him to get his hair cut and they really cut it short and he was not too happy but i think he looks cute because he always looks cute…okay I am being mushy so I will stop…I don’t want to make you sick!!! HEHE!!! Did i mention Nick is cute…HAHAHA!!!
Okay, last but not least, Canada…thank you!! I went to Canada and WOW…the fans are so amazing. I was overwhelmed by their support…thanks Canadians. I can’t wait to come back and spend more time with you and get to know more of you…you guys are GREAT!!! So now that I have written a book I just want to let all my message boarders know how much I truly love you guys…it is the absolute, biggest encouragement to come to the MB and read all your thoughts and comments…anytime I feel discouraged I go to the board and you encourage me…thanks! I love the prayer request thread! I go to the thread and pray for the request…I believe very strongly in the power of prayer. Sometimes our prayers are not answered as quickly or the way we think they should be answered but always know that God is in control and what seems like the right answer to you may not be the right answer in the end. I have had many prayers answered almost immediately and then I have had the ones I have been praying for for a very long time but the key is perseverance. I find that when “I am down on my knees, God can pour himself all over me”. I also appreciate all the support from the Teen People article…my hope is that it will encourage you to respect yourself…you are beautiful, special people…thank you for being my friends. I feel so BLESSED!!!!
Much Love, Jessica
