If You've Self-Diagnosed These 5 Symptoms, You May Be Suffering From High School Senioritis

If you're a senior in high school, you know the symptoms of this epidemic all too well.

If You've Self-Diagnosed These 5 Symptoms, You May Be Suffering From High School Senioritis

It's the last year of high school. In just two short months, you'll be done; done with the endless amounts of homework and sleepless nights. As the time till freedom starts narrowing down, so does your motivation towards school. At this point, you've probably already committed to a college or know what you're going to do with your life post-high school. What's the point of trying?

I'm currently suffering from "senioritis." If you're unfamiliar with the term, let me explain to you the symptoms.

1. Procrastination

You know how stressed out you'll be if you don't do your homework, but one more episode on Netflix couldn't hurt.

2. Irritability

You can't stand the immature underclassmen anymore and can't wait until college. Everyone from high school seems to get on your last nerve.

3. Fatigue

You're just tired...all the time. It's impossible to stay awake in class. Getting up at six every morning is something you won't miss next year.

4. Urge to nap

Going along with fatigue, you constantly want to nap. Naps are a blessing and a curse. What was supposed to be a five-minute nap turned into five hours.

5. Pressure


If any of the following apply to you, you probably have senioritis too. It's OK, we're in this together.

Don't quit yet, you're almost there! In a little, we'll be done with high school and free for the summer. Make the most of the time you have left with your high school friends and with your family. You can do this, I believe in you!

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
