Senioritis

Senioritis

Emily Bazin, Staff Writer

Ever since freshman year I have heard the same horror story over and over again. Seniotitis seems to be something that every senior claims to face, and those said seniors are often very vocal about it. I never believed the senioritis tale. Throughout my first three years of high school, while I did procrastinate and get annoyed with the work load, I thought that seniors using the term ‘senioritis’ was, quite frankly, dumb. I didn’t understand that at the end of the roller coaster ride we call high school that there is a time where one wants to end the ride so badly, that they stop working to get off of it. 

Now as a senior, I understand where all my predecessors were coming from. Senioritis: it’s real. I find myself procrastinating homework to the late hours of the night even more than I used too, and not wanting to attend class even in the slightest. I have always enjoyed school too, so this feeling is new to me. I’m not the only one who has caught the disease known as senioritis. Most of my class has. We seniors are so close to being done that it’s either not being ready to get off the ride, or wanting it to be over as soon as possible, that is fueling our profound disease. 

However, on the bright side, there is a way to end this senior sickness. That is to graduate, and the majority of us seniors are on track to do so. The cure is near, so let’s all keep that in mind when we find ourselves awake at 12 in the morning, on Netflix, not doing our homework.
