Disappearance of Melissa????

Standard

Bonjour one and all!

I am alive! I have just been extremely busy/uninspired/overwhelmed/creatively empowered this month. So much has been happening in April that I haven’t been able to focus on a theme for the month, much less take a deep breath!  Between rehearsals, performances, a quick trip home, to dog sitting, living in Queens for a week, taking tons of behind the scenes photos, to seeing amazing shows, supporting friends, planning brunch reunions, teaching in jail, and catching up on sleep, I have not been able to put all of my adventures down in the blogosphere!

So, since the month is almost up, don’t expect too many posts in the near future. I have to double down and figure out my time management skills more efficiently to bring you awesome content.

Don’t fret the New York Dreamer is still dreaming and is, in fact, involved in tons of amazing adventures. Recaps, catchups, photo galleries, dance videos and more will come, just not now!

Thanks for hanging in and check out my older posts and Instagram page to keep up with me until then.

Ciao 🙂

Wandering Wednesday

Standard

It’s pretty short and sweet this week for Wandering Wednesday. Hard to believe that tomorrow marks my last day on the messenger route for awhile, but at least I’ll get to wander to some old and new places again. Most of these were actually taken on Friday after work, when the weather was pretty pleasant and I decided to walk from 42nd street over to Magnolia Baker on 68th and Columbus.

Ciao 🙂

Monthly Motivations

Standard

March arrives this Sunday! March in New York doesn’t really mean anything, in terms of weather shifts, but it does mean that the glimmer of spring grows each day. I haven’t decided on a theme for the month yet, but wanted to give you a preview into where I’m leaning and what quotes and ideas will be guiding me for the next 31 days.

Ciao 🙂

Throwback Thursday

Standard

With all of the warm and fuzzy feelings about surrounding Graduation Season, it seems only fitting to post a photo or two from High School and College. Here ya go!

In this photo there are two current grad students, two proud owners of master's degrees, and two actors cutting it up on stage in OH and NY. Not too shabby!

Tuesday Thoughts

Super busy week ahead for me! With rehearsals (for Midsummer Night’s Dream), auditions (for touring companies in and out of state), training (for additional positions at my day job), and selling (continuing my training in jewelry selling in Brooklyn), I can admit that the visit from hometown friends (Andrew) and a long weekend away (mom/daughter time in D.C.) have refreshed and revitalized me for all that lies ahead!!

Saw this photo on Pinterest this morning and was the perfect reaffirmation of words my mother shared with me over dinner our last night in the nation’s capital.

Have a great Tuesday and be on the lookout for a Washington-themed Wandering Wednesday tomorrow.

 

Ciao 🙂
