The Sad Face of Senioritis


“The main symptoms of senioritis include procrastination, lack of motivation, a drop in academic performance, a desire to drop out of school, and “coasting”, which is the act of going through classes with very little concentration or application of intent along with truancy and frequent tardiness. This often happens in the last year of high schoolcollege or even graduate school. Example: My four hour break is over, time to concentrate on this essay for ten minutes brb.”

Hello old Friend. I see you there.  Distracting me with your wiles.

Keeping me from doing stuff that’s actually productive.

Forcing me to watch small adrob animal videos with my roomies for 4 hours instead of reading…

Reading those books that you made me rationalize not buying because the money would be “better spent” stocking up so we could pop champagne like Trey Songz for Southern Sunday Brunch mimosas.

Were you the one who told me there was an It’s Always Sunny marathon on last week so I pretty much cant start writing that paper due the next day at 11 till 3am? Fair enough.

Wait! What?!?! Did you just mention the ridiculous Wedding Wars? Did you know that takes place on Hawaii?

    I think I must have job-iritis cuz I don’t wanna be at work right now, lol.


  2. Ah, senioritis. I know it well. The worst part is, I didn’t have senioritis until one of my professors told me I was going to get it. After that, all productivity has left the room.


  3. I completely appreciate your jonesing for graduation and finally an end to all of this schoolwork madness. While I’m not currently experiencing the exact symptoms of the senioritis you mention, I feel restless and confined in my classes and when I write papers/study. I am completely ready to graduate, though I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my experience here at UMD. Love the post!

    I think Jessica said it in class the other day but I am definitely ready to be done with homework/exams. However, leaving school and the college lifestyle is certainly going to be tough!


  5. I swear, every long day, week, month, year over the past four years has gone by so unbelievably fast. Now it’s finals week and we’re almost done. Even after all this time, I’m still procrastinating studying by commenting on your senioritis post. Lesson learned? Obviously not.
