15 Stages Of Senioritis

The 15 Stages Of A Graduating Senior, Developing Senioritis

It hits hard in college.


I thought senioritis in high school was rough until I became a college senior about to go into the real world. I'm supposed to have everything figured out, right? I mean I went through four years of tough classes and serious self-searching (and crying). What I found overall was Senioritis sneaking up on me.

1. Excitement of the final year

This is it! The final year of crying myself to sleep over a paper!

2. Trying to take easy classes to make it out alive

If the professor does not have a 2.0 or less on Rate My Professor for level of difficulty, I don't want them.

3. Does attendance count for a grade?

WWHHHYYY? I have never understood this rule my whole four years. If they don't want to come you cannot make them.

4. Skipping once won't hurt me

Once becomes twice, twice becomes 10 times, and then you forget that you even had the class.

5. Wait that is due?

Here is to doing the assignment right before turning it in.

6. I'm just trying to graduate

One semester down, just one more to go.

7. I'll just do this assignment during my other class

I can do my Biochem homework in my Immunology class and my Immunology homework in my Biochem class. IT IS FOOL PROOF.

8. Patiently waiting

It is just two more months.

9. Rejection

Oh boy, this is the period of rejection letters from grad schools, internships and even jobs!

10. Accepting that you might have gotten a degree for nothing

How long will it take for me to climb the ladder of a local fast food joint?

11. Probably should have studied for that test

I know I binge watched every season of Master Chief Junior, I just couldn't say no to their little faces!

12. Sanity > class

I thought I took easy professors! I didn't want to be stressed out.

13. Finally an acceptance letter

Look ma, I made it!

14. Oh yeah, finals

The only thing that could stop me in my path.

15. Graduating!

I did it! I survived four long years of blood, sweat, tears and lots and lots of money. I can finally enter the adult world!

All in all, graduating from college is a huge accomplishment. It is a bumpy road, but if it is what you really want, it will all be worth it in the end. Do not give up on your dreams because of one rejection letter or a single hard class. Just keep going and do not be too hard on yourself.

When you're redecorating your bedroom, you might not think to stop by Five Below, considering everything is $5 and under. But you would be amazed at what you can find in that store.

I went not to long ago to get those cube storage boxes, that go into the shelf, and I left with almost $200 worth of stuff.

Hey, Class Of 2019, We FINALLY Made It

With less than two months until graduation, it's time to look back on how far we've come and where we're going.


I remember my first day of high school like it was yesterday. I was terrified of everything from the new and bigger school building to the seniors who were so much older and seemingly more mature than I was. They were about to finish a journey that I was just beginning. I'm sure all of us can relate to the fact that high school has definitely been a rollercoaster. Nothing has really stayed the same since 2015 when we started our freshman year, and in many ways, that's a good thing.

Most of us have grown up, whether that means you've gotten taller or just a little wiser than you were that August when you first walked through the halls that have become so familiar to you now. I remember thinking that I'd be lucky to graduate high school, simply because of how daunting and difficult it seemed. I just wanted to make it through these past four years and get my diploma and be off to college, as I'm sure most of us can also relate to.

High school wasn't as scary as I thought, however. Yes, homework does suck and there are days where getting out of bed at 7:00 a.m. seems harder than climbing Mount Everest. But look at us now — we did it. We're here in the home stretch, seven weeks (give or take) from graduation day and all of it will be over.

Whether you're headed off to your dream school, into the workforce or to the airport to travel the world, we're all on our way to being the best versions of ourselves, and it's important to remember through all of it to stay true to yourself. Wherever you go, hold tight to what makes you happy to be alive. Hold onto everything from the little things like your favorite song or food to the bigger things like your dreams and your passions. It's important to remember that no matter how hard or mundane it is being an adult, you can always find happiness somewhere in this world.

Now is our moment, class of 2019, so revel in it. Hug your families, because it isn't long until we'll all be miles away from them and those daily hellos and good nights will become few and far between. Have fun with your friends and take it all in. Hold onto this last little bit of our childhood that we have left, because, in a number of days, you'll pack up your parents SUV and head off into the unknown.

Here's to us, class of 2019, we've made it.
