"A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger."
Obviously I don't respond the correct way 100% of the time-old news really, but I'm not perfect! Some things I've learned, is to answer truthfully-"I don't know, I've been praying about it and feel like this is where God wants me."
It might also be helpful to share with the person what you're currently doing, what you've been thinking about doing, etc. And of course, the follow up question is usually, "so are you going to college?" My answer would be "no." The way I like to explain it to people is simply my reasoning- "I don't have anything I'm interested in getting a degree in, so I feel it would be a waste of money just to go for the experience or whatever."
This is definintely something I've struggled with, for about two years before I graduated I was getting almost panicky "um...God, you do realize I'm graduating soon, right? Time to let me know what I'm doing with my life!" Surprise! God's not on my time table! I've learned a great deal though in being patient, as well as resting in the fact that I truly do believe God will lead His children in the path they should walk. Besides, all the worrying just gives ya wrinkles anyway! ;)
How do you answer the "what are going to do with your life?" Question?
