"I used to think that if I cared about anything, I would have to care about everything, and I'll go stark raving mad. But, now I have found a purpose.And I feel the most wonderful freedom."
Hi, I'm Melissa!
Once upon a time there was a little girl whose mother introduced her to Labyrinth, Marilyn Manson, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show in the span of a few months. This girl grew up to be the weirdo introducing herself to you now--me! My name is Melissa and I am obsessed with political podcasts, Konmari, cats and yes, I am the only person still playing Pokemon Go. I've been performing at the Disneyland Resort for four years and studied musical theater at UC Irvine. If I happen to have a day off in between side hustles and performing, I do my best impression of a hermit: staying home, ignoring texts and indulging in my latest obsession (currently re-watching Buffy!). Ps--I still eat cake this way
Hi, I'm Anna!
I'm a feminist, proud cat parent, and jewelry lover and also I have an MFA in Acting from Brown/Trinity and a BA in Theater and Creative Writing from Northwestern University. I currently don my figurative tiny tiara every week to play baby princesses in Frozen: Live at the Hyperion at Disneyland. On my off days, I don my more fabulous, grown-up figurative tiara and hit the hustle auditioning around LA, writing for my blog (Pretty Little Loudmouth) directing/writing/devising theater, shopping way too much, and embroidering modern designs onto decorative pillows. I have a lot to say, and I'm always on the lookout for more ways to say them. My earliest memory of obsession is being enamored with Richard Gere in Runaway Bride. Current obsessions include engagement rings, weddings, podcasts (holla!), and the Twin Peaks reboot.
coming together to talk about how our obsessions, our friends' obsessions, and YOUR obsessions shape our lives and help us cope with the emotional complications that come with being a human. No obsession is off limits- from the silly, childish, and fun, to the dark, sexually deviant, and deeply embarrassing.
And together, we're #obsessed!
