Toxic

You've got it all figured out.  You're going to make it big, and you've got the plan to get there.  The right school, the right major, the right internship, the right first job, the right career.  And then it's all yours. 

Don't think about anything else.  Don't let anyone distract you.  Don't worry about who you have to step over.  You can have it all. 

Loving things and using people.  It's a popular message.  And one that couldn't be more toxic, especially for the person who's doing it.
