Senioritis – Philly Girl Talk


The last year of high school is supposed to be the best of the four years. But, with being a senior, there also comes a disease: SENIORITIS!!!

Senioritis is an epidemic that plagues almost every senior. It is characterized by slacking off, coming to school late, and having a disregard for school in general. Senioritis is usually coupled with procrastination. Both of these traits are deadly. The reality is that in the world we live in, people need to work.

Procrastination is bad. Even though we may be at the end of our high school careers, we are just starting our lives. Getting into the habit of procrastinating is not a good thing. It can cause harm in college and in the workplace. I myself have been suffering from senioritis but, here are some things that help me battle with the temptation to procrastinate:

1. Know who you are: If you were never the person to be late, do not start now. Don’t come out of your character because you’re almost at the end of the road.

2. Find something to motivate you: This could mean setting a goal, making a competition with your friends, or even promising yourself and your parents that you will do everything that you need to do. My personal goal is to maintain my honor roll.

3. Offer yourself a reward: If nothing else motivates you, tell yourself that you’ll get a gift or prize if you don’t slack off.

These tips should help you through the hard times during the rest of senior year and for the rest of your life. Procrastination is a hard habit to kick. Don’t set yourself up for failure by slacking off. Do the work now, and the play later will be even sweeter. Good luck guys!

    Senioritis is a natural thing! Close to graduating, close to prom, close to senior week, there is so much to look forward to that actual school work becomes irrelevant. Most students are accepted into their college and do not see the point of trying nor even coming to school. Honestly, I am only a junior but surely see myself falling victim to senioritis next year. When I reach that point in my senior year to try to prevent me from “falling off”, I will just remind myself to finish my year off great so I can look back and be proud. But after 13 years of school, we deserve a little break ! But definitely remind yourself this is only a period of time and don’t make that slacking a habit !

    Congrats Class Of 2012
