The alarm clock goes off. The sky is still dark with no hint of sunshine. Rolling out of bed, she gets ready to go to school. She stumbles into her first class, too tired to even lift her head to look at the board.

Armed with coffee and a sugary midnight snack, you hunker down for the study grind ahead. Sound familiar? If so, you may be a victim of the early-onset Rat Race.
