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:

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…

Change Has Arrived

New adventures lie ahead.  I've left my full time job in college admissions and am now full time into mine and Hunter's business.  I'm working on a few other ventures so when I know more I'll follow up on that.

I spent 6 years working at my last job and while I always knew I would go to my business full time eventually, it hasn't truly hit me that I'm not just taking some vacation time and spending a few days away.  I'm ready for my new normal though.

It's times like this I love having a lifestyle blog.  I'll look back on this post at some point and the thoughts had, the feelings felt will all come back.  This is a big milestone, leaving a corporate type job and going full speed as a small business owner.  Yay!!

I've got big plans for the next.  Excited for what's to come.



Let's meet again,

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:



Until …
