From an article by Alex Slack in last Friday's Crimson:
The stakes are too high. The embarrassing amounts of money that we've burned through at school in Cambridge should and must lead us, in the eyes of outsiders, to professional bliss, and this entitlement paralyzes us. It paralyzed me as well, until I attended a conference three weeks ago. There, a veteran of the Green Berets told my peers and me to plan to be unhappy. He said that if we had too much vested in the ideal of being happy post-college, we would only be more likely to fool ourselves into being happy instead of continually exerting ourselves to find our true places.
