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


APPLYING TO SCHOLARSHIPS! HOMEWORK! PROM! SOCIAL LIFE! WORK!

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!
