The Inevitable Bout With Senioritis

The Inevitable Bout With Senioritis

Sharon Madu, Editor//Dakota Meekins

Senioritis- an affliction of students in their final year of high school or college, characterized by a decline in motivation or performance.

 I am currently experiencing the worst case of senioritis, I am not motivated to do my schoolwork or homework, it has gotten to the point where if I am not in school, my work will not get done, and it does not help that I work on top of my half day schedule. 

My attendance has also begun to slip, I went from having almost perfect attendance to showing up to school at most 2-3 times a week. I am so ready to graduate but at the same time I feel a sense of anxiety that never subsides about what I am going to do with the rest of my life.

After I walk across that stage and get my diploma, I will not have the structure that high school provided for me, I will have complete control of my education and that scares me.

I am worried I will succumb to my senioritis and be unable to progress in life after high school.  

Do you feel the same?
