A College Student In Spring Semester Is Way Worse Than Senioritis

A College Student In Spring Semester Is Way Worse Than Senioritis

The craving for summer has set in.

David Kennedy

Ahhh high school. Even though it was only a year ago, it feels like a lifetime. One year ago, I was stressing over prom and graduation. I couldn't wait to get done with all of my high school BS and move on to college life. The struggle to go to school every day was getting more and more difficult. Fast forward a year, I am towards the end of the third semester of my freshman year in college and I cannot wait to be done. I thought senioritis was bad, but boy, is being a college student in spring semester worse.

First of all, since starting college, my patience has thinned to almost nothing. It baffles me that I used to sit in school for 8 hours a day let alone 50 minutes in a lecture hall. I guess high school didn't seem too long to me at the time because I had been doing those hours for twelve years. However, when I got to college and was done with class by 10 am, the game was forever changed. I am not one who likes to miss class because I feel guilty but recently, it hasn't been easy to listen to American History while the sun is shining right outside.

Spring break was really when it got bad. Having a week off to be lazy and just spend every second at the beach was a major tease. I was able to bask in the glory of having no assignments due, not even checking Canvas once. By the time Sunday came around and it was time to return, I was having major vacation hangover and suddenly I was craving summer. I am over sitting in classrooms listening to lectures trying to keep my eyes open, I need to be on a hammock sipping something sweet watching the sunset.

I really can't complain because seniors in highschool do have an extra month of school that college students don't have to deal with. We are in the final stretch, the last month. As long as I push through finals week, I will be at a peace of mind, ready to enjoy summer. I think senioritis is easier to deal with than spring semester because after senior year you look forward to summer away from home at college. Summer B was the time of my life and it made all of the senioritis worth it. On the contrary, for college students, we know we will be back next year which makes us more anxious to leave.

All the spring fun in the beginning of the semester has ended, spring break has faded, and now its time for summer. Seniors, don't take senioritis too serious because the best is yet to come and you'll experience the real need for school to end when you get to your spring semester. Take it in, enjoy it all, the fun has just begun.

10 Home Items You Need For Stress Relief, On The Days You 'Literally Cannot'

Fill your home with peaceful, calming coping mechanisms.

I'd like to think that 2020 is teaching us a lot. Or will teach us a lot. Or will be a story we tell at parties one day. Ultimately, this year has been — and is probably going to continue to be — a bit of a mess.

At the beginning of the year, Australia was on fire and we mourned the death of Kobe Bryant. Then, coronavirus (COVID-19) took our spring and shut us in our homes, inciting panic over public health and sparking political upheaval at every decision made by local and federal officials alike. Now, a week after George Floyd's death at the hands of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, a nationwide conversation is reignited with protests regarding racial injustice in the United States. There is an enormous amount of tension, hurt, and change that is upon the American people.

7 Ways You Can Safely Attend A Protest In The Middle Of A Pandemic

Wear a mask, but speak up.

It seems like coronavirus (COVID-19) has been around forever now. Life before masks and with public sporting events is a distant memory, hoping to make a comeback sometime this year. We've all had to make some sort of life changes to abide by this pandemic's rules. But that doesn't mean everything has stopped. On May 25, George Floyd died at the hands of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, sparking a cry for justice and racial equality across the nation.

For the last week, protests have taken place in major cities like New York City, LA, DC, Chicago, Phoenix, Portland, Dallas, and Floyd's hometown of Minneapolis. Many of the cities experiencing protests have begun phased reopening, while others (specifically New York City and LA) have yet to begin phase one of post-coronavirus reopening.
