Senioritis is very common around our school. I talked to a handful of seniors and asked them how they feel about this awful disease.
Samantha Long described Senioritis to be when people freak out too much about their school work. Senioritis affects her in the way that it makes her not feel okay.
She doesn’t believe it would affect other people because they aren’t seniors and aren’t yet dealing with the thought of leaving high school.
Jason Osorio is another senior at SBHS. He defined Senioritis as being lazy, not completing school work and not attending classes. Jason says he currently has senioritis. “I get lazy and don’t want to do school work.”
He mentions this is bad because he feels it will affect him later on in life. “I will become lazy and an unproductive member of society.” He thinks that by seniors having this horrible disease it will make other students on campus think it is okay.
Edith Angel mentioned Senioritis is getting to her and it’s making her lazy. She says it can affect other students because if someone doesn’t want to do their work, they can go ahead and also convince others like their friends not to do it either. It starts with something as simple as that. “I define senioritis as getting lazy and not wanting to do any work. Students just wanna do the fun activities.”
The only cure is a phenomenon known as Graduation.
If you found yourself saying “omg me” throughout this article it is possible that you are suffering from this disease known as senioritis.
