Y'all, Senioritis is a real thing. It might not be a real word (or I've spelled it incorrectly) but it is definitely something you get. I got mine a little early. Last semester to be exact, but it hasn't gone away if anything it has increased. It might be because I'm already thinking about the future that the present seems to be boring. If that's the case, it's my own fault. But I will say that senioritis is a actual thing and it sneaks up on you. You may have it too if you have any of these symptoms.

1. You constantly consider dropping out.

2. You're homework seems like less of a mandatory thing and more of a suggestion.

3. Showing up to class also feels like a suggestion.

4. Graduation feels further and further away.

5. You constantly ask yourself why you're in college in the first place.

6. You have looked at a Freshman who is hopeful and excited to be here... and cried.

7. Your bank account and impending student loans are whispering "Drop out".

8. You start googling successful people who don't have college degrees.

9. Days where you don't have class feel like the best days of your life

10. You've practiced your "Mom, Dad College isn't for me" speech.

11. You know your graduation date better than your birthday, that 10-pg paper due date, your anniversary, and Christmas' date.

If you or anyone you know is suffering from this, I wish there was a cure but there isn't. In the mean time, enjoy your final year. Have movie nights with friends and study parties. Don't let your impending departure keep you from passing all of your classes and know that in the end once you have your degree, it will all be worth it in the end. I believe in all of you!
