MMIA: Melissa Missing in Action


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 🙂

“June is Bustin’ Out All Over!”



A new month has arrived and with it my birthday! Only six days away, I am so excited to be hitting 25, the year of no-excuses. I say no-excuses because the middle point in my twenty-something years bears significance that I am really no longer a student. I can comfortably begin referring to myself as a woman, and can embrace all that adulthood has to offer me (loans, bills, rental cars, etc.) I think that’s why I am looking forward to the amazing experience I have gifted for myself this year: a trip to San Diego! A five day trip out to the West Coast, where I’ll be able to plan exactly what it is I want to do without having to worry about making other people happy or comfortable. I’m not going to lie to y’all, it’s a bit daunting, but I think that’s exactly what I need it to be. To be able to stand on my own two feet and have this independent vacation help chart how I wish this next year to go. If I feel like taking a day trip to LA I could, but if I don’t, I won’t. I’m not really making any obligations to anyone, except myself, so the trip is sure to include the beach, baseball, aquarium, shopping, the beach, great food, and maybe even a spa day (if I can find a great groupon.) Renting a bike, or just walking around in La Jolla, there are so many things at my disposal to choose from. Fun stuff! And this train of thinking will benefit me in other ways as well. Even here in New York, there are so many things at my disposal, and with the summer in front of me, I am bubbling with anticipation to see how I will come out of it on the other side 🙂

Come on 25! I am ready for you!
