Priorities and Senioritis – A Continuing Problem

     There is an epidemic that has been plaguing the halls of the school since the bane of its existence.  Senioritis. It is a illness that has no cure, and no vaccine. When you arrive to your senior year, it is guaranteed to hit you like a bus.

 

Sidenote: if there was a vaccine we would all be anti-vax moms.

 

Anyways, back to the real problem. Senioritis.

 

Urban Dictionary, which is banned on the school’s wifi, defines Senioritis as a crippling disease that strikes high school seniors, symptoms including: extreme laziness, lack of studying, not going to any of your classes, and wearing too many tracksuits.

 

Unfortunately, if you have fallen ill with Senioritis, the disease will stay with you through Graduation, and probably until the start of college. Basically until you realize that you actually need to get your stuff together and toilet paper is really expensive.

 

“They told me second semester senior year was gonna be the easiest one yet, they were wrong,” said Senior Banya Baidun, “but if I pretend that I don’t have any work, then the stress floats away.”

 

This seems to be a common trend among  seniors suffering from senioritis, putting off or completely ignoring their work. The effect of this can be seen as senior grades average drops to a D point average in the last few months of their required school careers.

 

We seniors really enjoy finishing our high school years strong.

 

Although some seniors may say they don’t have senioritis, (“never heard of her” said senior Havid Dirschhorn), they are merely in the stage of denial.

 

We all have it, we all will have it. So don’t try and stop it, if you set your expectations super low, then you cannot possible disappoint yourself.

 

As senior Den Baecher wrote on their snapchat story, “Senior year is essentially ‘I don’t wanna do the work today, I don’t really wanna do the work today, so i’m not gonna’ on repeat. All day long.”

 

To sum it all up, I am going to go to bed. This article took me three weeks to write. It’s 300 words long.
