Today I got this precious bunny with a candy cane tattooed!
This bunny was made by artist Brandi Milne! She is amazing and I have been sucked in her latest art book “FrohLich”! Now my little dreamer girl in a dress has a bunny pal in a dress. Both of them have peter pan collars! Cute cute.
A bunny because my nickname is “Bun Bun”. All of my tattoo’s are positive and happy. All their little faces make me happy everyday.

Today I had my first Lesly Kahn Comedy Intensive Acting class. It was from 10:30 am to 4:30 pm. It took two years for me to finally commit to taking this specific acting class. All this time I just told myself, ” I don’t need acting classes, I got this. I’m naturally funny and anyone would be happy to have me play a character in a movie/show.” or “Acting classes are stupid. Actors are annoying. I’m gonna be another type of wanna-be actor with a conceited mentality.”
Boy was I wrong. But that’s what life is right? Always have to make mistakes and learn from them. So, now when I hear someone put down a person who is pursuing acting, you bet that I will stand up for them. Just as I stand-up for stand-up comedians. Pursuing acting is incredibly hard. Boy the things I learned within one day. It made my head hurt. So much information was pouring through my eyes and ears today. I loved LOVED this class. These next two weeks will be busy with rehearsing daily with fellow classmates.
I won’t give away what I learned today, because I just think well, if you want to learn, just take a class with Lesly Kahn. I will not give away their secrets. The teachers do not sugar coat and baby you if you want to learn. They say how brutal this world is and that it’s not fair. You can only do your best and give everyday your all.
But what hit me the hardest today was the realization that I should work more on my impressions, the gift that sets me apart from many, a gift that God gave me. I pushed it so much in the dark that I can’t remember the old me. Today, I am allowing that part of me back, to sprinkle love on that gift again. I am so sorry if I have hurt people/fans in the past that would say, “I love that impression you do (of so and so) Melissa!” And I would immediately respond, “Oh heh, thanks, I don’t really focus on it anymore though.” What a fucking dick response. I hope that those people out there whom I have hurt can forgive me. People deserve second chances because we all just learn from our mistakes here on earth.
Love you and thank you for always sticking by me. I support your talents and your path.
