Sure, you think you’ve got it all figured out. You’re a triple major in Philosophy Pre-Law, Architecture and Astrophysics. You’ll be interning for the government this summer, and you make some pocket money as a part-time private detective. You’ve got that invasive, border-line threatening demeanor that says: I may be 18 but I’m Professional. You’re a Leader – it says so on your T-shirt – the sort of person we’d want around in a nuclear disaster and as far away as possible at a weekend party.

But have you thought about the future? Grad school? Maybe you’re in grad school. Career? Do you have jobs lined up? Will you spend this weekend killing brain cells with your buddies or shopping at Brooks Brothers for that magic look to wow your moneyed interrogators? Does your mind drift from valuable keyword searches – “jobs,” “internships,” “money,” “Help!” “deceased relatives,” “my family tree” – to thoughts of TV, girlfriends, relaxation… sleep, food…happiness?

In short, are you a lost soul with no plan?
