Is There a Cure for Senioritis?


Fri, Jun 1st, 2001
Posted in

By Chris GuttormsonIt's a disease that has plagued seniors for years. It shows no mercy and eats away at the concentration of all who are unfortunate enough to succumb to it's evil. You can't run. You can't hide! Look out, it's SENIORITIS!!!!!! Even though senioritis is not an actual disease, it can sure feel like one. Towards the end of the school year, the seniors are thinking of prom, graduation, college admission, spending some of the last times they will spend with friends, and loads of other stuff. School just seems pointless. "I'm already accepted to this college, why do I have to do well in high school anymore?" Such comments are not unheard of in the halls of high schools this time of year.

So, what's the remedy for this awful disease? Is there one? I'm sorry to say that there is no easy way to get rid of it. Even the most dedicated student can feel as if it's pointless to go to school during that last month or so of school, even though they know it's not. Just because there is no cure for senioritis, there is, in fact, a few ways to make the last stretch of your senior year a little easier. Plan, prioritize, break down, and smile.

PLAN! By planning tasks out ahead of time, you will be able to comprehend better the goals that you must reach. Also, by writing down everything you must do in the day or month, etc... you will not forget to do something. Many times we get swamped with tasks whether it be homework, work, sports, plays, musical performances, etc... and we end up not remembering everything we are supposed to do and when. By keeping a calendar schedule, you can keep all these things organized so you won't forget to get something done.

PRIORITIZE! Make sure you know which task is more important. Not only that, know when each task is important. You may enjoy doing one thing more so you spend more time on it. This could be bad in the long run. You must decide what is important and get it done. Even though this concept seems like common sense and even a little ridiculous to mention, it is too often overlooked by seniors, and any student, for that matter. We end up doing things we enjoy rather than things that need to get done and we will pay for it dearly in the end. So just get it over with so you can put it behind you.

BREAK DOWN! No, I don't mean break down in tears (though many of us may feel like doing that once in a while due to stress) or "gettin' down with your bad self." I'm talking about breaking tas .....
