So…I Solo Travelled to Croatia and Sang

I spent the months of Spring submitting auditions for anything I could. One of them panned out and I ended up doing a three week training program in Croatia! I was so excited to dive into my Le Nozze di Figaro score for my role debut of Marcellina. I bought a one way ticket because […]

We have a lot to cover…

I don’t necessarily mean that in a bad way! It’s just a lot has happened and it wasn’t all amazing but it wasn’t all bad either. I’ll make separate posts about everything to divide it up but here’s what you have to look forward to. I helped deliver my baby niece into the world, which […]

Rejection and Validation

Rejection occurs in many forms and is always hurtful. Why is it always hurtful? It’s in our nature as humans to feel accepted amongst each other, especially our loved ones and superiors. Validation also occurs in may forms but, if there isn’t any, can also be hurtful. Again, we strive to feel accepted and seek […]

It Has Been A Minute…

Wow, I haven’t been able to write for quite some time because my laptop died. Well, it didn’t die at first. First I broke the screen by shutting the screen on a wooden zebra figurine my sister got me from Africa. I lightly shut it as I was heading out and it straight up broke […]

Ever feel stuck? I don’t mean wondering if you should get pizza or spaghetti, I mean wondering if you are even hungry at all. That’s a bad analogy…I was never good at those, but I try. I have felt pretty good the past couple of weeks but a little stuck which is why I haven’t […]

Thoughts on Travelling Solo to Hawaii

Have you ever travelled alone? Do you enjoy travelling alone? If not, why is that? I have to say that travelling alone as a woman is different than travelling alone as a man. A woman will always keep her guard up for obvious reasons. There is something vulnerable about a woman travelling alone because it […]

Cliff Notes Update

About 5 weeks ago, I wasn’t feeling well. I had a constant worry and my body was upset. This seems to happen every time I take a step toward moving to Germany. I just wanted to crawl into a hole and not come out. A loved one made me feel better but even then I […]

Friendships are for the soul

I started my morning looking forward to seeing a friend from college. I consider her one of my best friends even though we don’t see or talk to each other as often as some other people. She is the kind of person that brings a lot of light to your life and I was looking […]


I have always loved playing the big sister role. I believe that my life moments have taught me a thing or two and they just might do the same for you! My name is Melissa and I am starting this blog, Melissa’s Moments. I am 28 years old and figuring myself and life out…well, I’m […]
