Google defines senioritis as “a supposed affliction of students in their final year of high school or college, characterized by a decline in motivation or performance.” We asked five seniors from our staff about how they deal with their senioritis. Their answers are below.
Bre Jarvis (Editor-in-Chief):
- Keep telling yourself that you can overcome this.
- Repeat until you have a mental breakdown, fueled by caffeine the entire process.
Matthew Fiedler (Opinion Editor):
- Don’t skip school! Tell a friend to give you a call and meet up at school.
- Set goals that involve coming to school. You can’t succeed if you don’t try!
Denise Uy (Feature Editor):
- Your teachers have probably given up too by now, so think about how easy your classes are!
- Look forward to never coming back to Nease again (as a student) in a few short months.
Fara Supre (Co-Publisher):
- Don’t think that you have all the time in the world to get yourself together; you have 10-ish months…that’s it.
- Focus on the all the things that you enjoy about school; they will probably outweigh all the negatives.
Nevada Suckow (Staff Writer):
- Start a count down, but for everyday get something productive done.
- Set goals with friends and hold each other to them.
Hannah Favorite (Co-Publisher):
- Take a deep breath- know it’ll be over soon.
- Go to the beach before/after school to breath.
- Make a bullet journal.
