    Me at 34: Owning my dream

    I turned 34 this weekend. The morning after, I woke up with a hangover and wondered where my dream went. This isn’t what it sounds like. It’s not the “blink, turn 40, and wonder what you did with your life” kind of thing. It’s more the idea of looking to reclaim ownership of that dream,…
