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 thank all my family and friends for the most support in the world. I am beyond thankful for the large amounts of love and encouragement. It has been a helluva ride; one that I would absolutely take repeatedly. I would not feel as convicted for this without the help from these lovelies.

My Course Directors at Full Sail University are all*stars and truly the finest group of academics I have ever learned from. I could not, would not be where I am without their knowledge and guidance. A 'THANK YOU' written in the sky with glitter smoke while birds swarm around in an aerial design could not fulfill the token of gratitude I'd like to express.


What's next you ask? Allow me to reference some pinspirations to explain some to do's:

Simple McSimpleton advice(s)in my opinion. Onward and up, my loves.


Til me we meet again,

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Blogtober Day 26, Who would play you in a movie...

Ohhh good one, Blogtober.

Someone once told me I reminded them of Drew Barrymore. They didn't say if it was for look or personality, so I'm not sure where they drew the conclusion from. See what I did there?

I threw this out to one of my very best and oldest friends Andrea. Talking it out, we agreed that Drew and I do share some similar qualities, both in personality and in dressing and accessorizing. Andrea reasoned that Drew is quirky and a little less traditional, much like me. I reasoned we have the same headbands:

I also recalled that when I was a little girl, everyone thought I looked like a young Drew Barrymore. Both my parents have said people would come up to them all the time and remark on my resemblance to her in that movie Firestarter:

Whatever it is, I would absolutely be pleased if Drew played me in a movie.

Now, if Penelope Garcia was a real person and not a character on a TV show (Criminal Minds), she would undoubtedly play me in a movie:

"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…
