    Figuring Out Life: "Fuck This, I Want to Do the Art"

    It is with much joy, sweat and tears that we bring you the last episode of the season! To close out the show, we sit down and chat with our really great friend Eva who talked about her process of figuring out and following her dream of becoming a photographer.

    We all struggle mapping out our futures, but that's normal in this crazy thing called life. Join us as we sit on the mustard couch for the last time this season and learn that sometimes, to find your path, all it takes is some letting go, faith and dedication to the mission.

    For this weeks episode, we're taking it back to 2007 with our friend Blair.
