How to install Drush on a Dreamhost shared server

Okay, y’all. A bit of a nerdtown departure from the usual. 

I was recently trying to install drush on a shared DreamHost server, which I know is 100% possible because I’ve done it. But I could not remember how I did it and I had to stitch together like 13 different instructions and it made me literally curl up in a ball on my bed.
