MMIA: Melissa Missing in Action

Standard

Hello blog world!

Although I know no one has been on the site for two weeks, I wish to greet you all the same.

Let me start off by saying, I am NOT sorry for being MIA. I take great joy in being able to say that I just have not had the time to sit and post photos, memories, and poems because the whirlwind of web series production has completely enveloped all of my free time.

Not only have I been in Shampagne production world, but add on top of that, my Adler Youth Shakespeare class, That Bachelorette Show, a new class in partnership with Pathways to Graduation, Rising Circle events and duties, and the continued NYU day job shuffle, its been pretty quiet on the NYDreaming front.

That being said, I have now determined I must return to the blog-o-sphere with a flourish! However, I’m not really sure how to go about it LOL.

So, I suppose the solution would be to just dive back in. Sure it’s October 12th, but look up and you’ll find my monthly motivations, and a dance video will be hitting the site this Friday (if I have enough media space. grrrr) Anyway, I am back, even while I haven’t really gone anywhere.

For those who stumble upon the page today, thanks for stopping by. For my avid readers, who have been pondering my whereabouts, welcome back! Persistent and Consistent, that’s the mantra for the year, so back on the blogging horse I go!

Ciao 🙂

Hey everybody! Happy Friday!

This has been a great week for me here in NYC, filled with numerous auditions (where I kicked butt in the room), an unplanned trip to Lincoln Center (to watch ABT’s performance of “La Bayadere” in the Grand Tier), building up my actor karma selling SdV Designs in Park Slope and Washington Square over the Memorial Day weekend, and celebrating Lauren’s new job at BLVD Bistro in Harlem!

As another month ends, and my 25th birthday approaches this week has definitely been a great “swan song” for 24! Auditioning for theatre companies and short films, rehearsing one of Shakespeare’s best while building camaraderie with my cast members, reconnecting with Saskia and Scott helping them with their business in any way I am able, and finally coming full circle with the opportunity to perform at Stella by Starlight, my acting studio’s annual fundraising gala where they will be honoring Rosie Perez, among others. Hope I don’t get too star struck. 😉

This weekend will be filled with hellos and goodbyes. As I get a chance to hang with Jassmine and Derrick (from Philly) who are in the city Saturday, and saying goodbye to Cynthia as she prepares to “Flee the City” for her year abroad. Also a new roommate has moved in over here at the apartment and can’t wait to get to know her as the months progress.

Have a great weekend all! And happy greetings to the month of JUNE!!!
