Students suffer from senioritis

As the school year is coming to an end, many seniors are starting to develop senioritis. Senioritis is defined as a supposed affiliation of students in their final year of high school, characterized by a decline in motivation or performance. 

“Senioritis has made it harder for me to get up in the mornings, along with I’ve also lost most of my motivation to do my hair too,” senior Drew Thornburg said.

With only a few weeks of school left, seniors have to start filling out scholarships and preparing for graduation. Many deadlines are coming up for seniors to get stuff turned in, but procrastination is getting the best of many.

“Having senioritis has made me really lazy lately, so I have made countdowns on my phone to help me get through these last couple of weeks,” senior Brayton Fletcher said.

While the majority of the seniors do have senioritis, there are a select few that say they don’t. The idea of leaving home, not getting home cooked meals and not sleeping in their own bed doesn’t sound as amusing to some, as it does to others.

Senior Matthew Giles shows the stress of what most seniors are facing as this school year comes to an end. Stress came from procrastination of meeting scholarship and college deadlines.

“I’m not really worried about what is going to happen next year because I am just going to Pratt Community College, so I am not in a big hurry to get out of here,” senior Star Boley said.

Although many may think that the last day of school is still a ways away, graduation will be here before we know it. As of now, the seniors less than a month of school left. To some this may be something that brings joy to their heart, while others this may mean that this could be the last days that the class of 2017 will all be together.
