Stopping Senioritis Before It Starts
Seniors, stop your senioritis before it even starts!
August 21, 2015
When people ask me if I’m excited to graduate from high school, I tell them that I’ve had senioritis since freshman year. In fact, I am counting down the days until graduation and the school year is just beginning.
However, I am setting a goal for myself and all other Fastweb users: try to procrastinate from coming down with senioritis.
Procrastination is a quality that some students cannot help but possess and, in this case, is a good quality.
So, how should seniors go about avoiding and procrastination from the contagious senioritis?
Here are a few ideas:
1. Stress Less
This is the time when seniors start to apply to colleges and start to become more independent.
The college search and application process is beyond stressful, but it is crucial. Seniors cannot allow themselves to become too obsessed with this difficult process. This also means try not to procrastinate too much.
2. Organization is Key
If seniors keep organized, there’s less of a chance that they will become disoriented. I find that the more disorganized I am, the more I tend to get off track with everything.
Colleges still care about your senior year grades; this doesn’t mean no social life allowed, it just means seniors have to keep themselves organized from the beginning to the end of the year.
3. Have Fun!
What is senior year without the fun? Keep your social life and extracurriculars going throughout the year. Hang out with your friends and enjoy the last year of high school.
Four years goes by far too quickly and senior year is when all the work pays off!
Have some fun, you deserve it!
