“So, what are you doing this summer?” asked my advisor when I went into plan my schedule last week. A bit over-zealously I said, “Oh, I’m going to be a camp counselor.” The smile usually plastered on her faced dropped and she snarkily retorted with, “Well, you can do the camp counselor thing this summer, but you better apply for some internships next winter in order to figure out what you want to do with your life."
