That Ol’ Senoritis Bug

Jackie Wagnerby Jacqueline Wagner

This is senior year (and everything) is finally coming to an end…  To all of you who have graduated – oh my goodness! – you’re aware of that amazing feeling:  That little thing called senioritis starts to kick in and man is it amazing!!

“Se·nior·i·tis (sē-nyər-ˈī-təs), noun: def. 1 A crippling disease that strikes high school seniors. Symptoms include: laziness, an over-excessive wearing of track pants, old athletic shirts, sweatpants, athletic shorts, and sweatshirts. Also features a lack of studying, repeated absences, and a generally dismissive attitude. The only known cure is a phenomenon known as Graduation.” [courtesy of Urban Dictionary]

There’s going to be an entire summer with nothing school-related to worry about,  and you start to not care about your homework.  Not only does everything seem less important, but you already have your plans for the next year, and the teachers (God bless them) give you less to do because they know it is close to the end.

Unfortunately, senioritis is just a dream in my world, that seems to be JUST out of grasp. As much as I wish I could have it… I can’t.  End of the year exams are coming up and go throughout the entire month of May… and to top it all off, I have a 15-20 page essay to write the last week of school. The topic, at least, is what I learned over the past year, so I can make it pretty interesting.. but 15 pages!?!

I’m supposed to have less work, not more!

For anyone who has had the chance to experience senioritis, I am oh so extremely very much completely and totally jealous, because I am ready to move on and be done with homework (even as a write this I’m supposed to be writing an essay.. in French.. about being a translator for the United Nations…gahhh).
