As second semester commences its 5-month journey, the senior class is beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. The infamous condition of senioritis may not be an official medical diagnosis; however, it is just as real as the common cold. Unfortunately for this year’s senior class, the only real cure for this infirmity is graduation day itself. According to Thomas Walquist, “coming into this semester, I already have no motivation.” Lack of motivation is one of the most common symptoms of senioritis. Other indicators of the ailment include excessive tardiness, uncontrolled hallway wandering, and the lack of ability to complete assignments until the last minute or even at all. When asked about how he is feeling, senior Jacob Thompson stated, “It’s not as bad as junior year was, and leaving school at certain times is a major plus.” Other ways students have chosen to cope with the negative effects of senioritis is spending extra time with friends and making sure that they have free time to unwind from all the stress from their school lives. The most important thing to do, however, is to remember to fully appreciate and hold onto every moment.
