How Do You Google That? Pursuing Your Dream Life is Hard

Complicated. Perplexing. Confounding. Befuddling.  Confusing. Life. I mean, seriously…what the heck, man??  This ride was a whole lot more fun when I had everything figured out.  Which was approximately immediately before I realized I knew nothing.
