Spring Fever.

It’s that time of year. Second semester of senior year. A disease that plagues seniors everywhere is in the air. And to be honest, I can feel the onset of its symptoms. In case you don’t know, let me familiarize you the most common symptom of Senioritis:

A decreased motivation to do anything school related. This could include but is not limited to going to class everyday, completing assignments the night before or a few hours before it’s due, an increased “IDGAF” attitude, and every now and then the heavy rain outside is a good enough reason to not go to class. (But that’s just what I’ve heard).

But who can blame all the seniors across the world? Between spring break and graduation in the same semester, it’s not hard to believe that young college minds everywhere are going into temporary hibernation. Of course graduation is the only cure for senioritis, but until then, the necessary obligations of figuring out what the hell I’m going to do with my life after helps to keep some symptoms at bay.

But with spring break just a week away, I can already feel the slow shift of my brain into cruise mode. Then after that graduation is only 50 something days away! But until then, I guess I’ll put on my big girl panties and muster up the strength to remember my responsibilities and duties and do what I need to do to get the hell up out of here. Hopefully.

Signed,

A sick senior.

This is it. College graduation is upon you! In t-minus two months and 10 days, you are expected to, for the most part, have the rest of your life figured out. It’s time to put all those skills you learned in college to the test. This is when all the really important shit you learned comes into play. You should begin to appreciate all those classes that you thought at one time were pointless. That FYE class you took? That’s the information you’re really going to need to succeed in life. Forget learning how to pay bills or insurance, or buying a house or a car. All that superfluous information only clutters the mind. So when relatives and family friends begin to ask about your post graduation plans and what you want to do with your life, and you finally realize you have no damn clue and lack the basic skills needed to survive as an adult, you may just want to shit your pants a little. And if you haven’t already, you may begin now.
