It’s Okay to Be a Multi-Dimensional Human and Not Give a Damn

What do you want to be when you grow up? This was a common question we kiddos were asked by adults who towered over us and grinned. I’m not sure if you heard it too during your childhood years, but it’s one of those weird conversations that has incredible staying power.
