You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling

Happy Wednesday, praise the lawd we are halfway through the work week! I cannotcannotcannot wait for the weekend to get here. The pep in my step today I seem to have found is totally generating from this anticipation. Oh and the Oscars hosted by Ellen are also this weekend. Hallelujah all around!

So what to say, what to say when you want to blogging blog blog...a list! That always does the trick:

1. Health is an incredibly scary thing to me. I want to be healthy and active and take care of myself but it's still scary that as preventative as you may be, there are things out there to arise on their own. I guess the best practice is to just do what you can to not help the hands of any fate you may encounter otherwise.

2. If I was going into college again for the first time ever, I would major in Interior Design. I love decorating and would appreciate learning certain dynamics to beautify a space precisely and methodically.

3. Hunter and I have had some serious conversations la…

Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning." - Gloria Steinem

I have been in a funk lately. I think it's a combo of me getting sick right in the smack dab middle of graduating(and still bouncing back in some ways) and also the void I feel from being done with something I so intently focused my life on for the last year.

I am so happy to be done, yes, but I knew I would feel a loss from the experience being complete. I am having a hard time honestly. New projects are under way but I'm not as dedicated as I'd like to be yet. I'm trying to take advantage of having more free time and relax but it is harder than I realized it would be. I'm at a turning point, waiting to get off this page and on to the next...

How does one truly refocus and re-purpose their direction when one chapter closes? We all hear the messages to feel inspired; we're told to be aware of doors closing and opening constantly and one of my favorite movies offers a really great quote that I'm constantly referring to:
Beginnings are usually scary, en…

"I strongly believe if you work hard whatever you want, it will come to you. I know that's easier said than done, but keep trying"-Beyonce

I think it's safe to say at this point we all know who Beyonce is and that she does in fact rule the world. Need further prove from anything else you may know as evidence of this? Allow me to share an observation...

Whilst walking for some fresh air and cardio Sunday morning, I found myself jamming to the Beyonce station on Pandora, a first in a long time I will add. Now, with other stations powered by a specific artist, one will find other artists taking up residence on that channel as well. Not in this example. While I admit I did skip a few of Bey's songs, sorry girl, only once did an Alicia Keys song play and once it was Destiny's Child (It was Bugaboo for the record and yes, it was as fabulous as I remember. I also need to remember to dig out my pager from storage). Anyhow, all other songs, whether prompted by skipping or what came next, was Beyonce every.single.time. There we have it; further proof Beyonce is queen of all the lands.

Let me be clear, I am tota…

It's Friday, I'm in love

Ah Friday, I just love when you show your beautiful face. After a particularly grueling week (I'm fighting bronchitis) I'm happy to bid farewell to it.

Today's post is brought to you by feeling better, breathing through one's nose, and my should-be-arriving-any-time-today Kate Spade purse, aka a grad gift to myself. Extra special on this? A more than 50% savings on the ol'gal. Victory is mine shopping gods:


Now, on to my edition of things/people I love to acknowledge this Hallmark enriched day:

Some homies-










One bubsy-









Da Dogters-








And a wee bit of accessorizing-
















Much love to all and to all a splendid weekend :)


Tim we meet again,

Dream on Dreamer

Reporting live from my life, Megan Hyde, MA, here. Is it weird that I am entirely so excited that I can add the "MA" after my name now? Yes, yes it is. I graduated on Friday and much to my happiness, I am the Salutatorian of my class. As I stood in line waiting to hear my name called to climb the stairs and make my way across the stage, I started to shake a smidgen and when I heard "Ladies and gentlemen, the Salutatorian of the New Media Journalism class..." Well, my heart soared and my legs were strong, no longer shaky.






Aside from the MA after me name, I am excited for new projects, new goals, and books! My god man, the leisure reading books! I bought Orange is the New Black and perhaps it's the freedom to read as long as I want without having to stop and go do homework but I read the first few chapters so intently. Great story so far and I'm excited to get back to it...for.as.long.as.I.want! Ahahahaha so this is how the other half lives?

I must th…
