Six Nease Seniors Offer Tips For Combatting Senioritis

Google defines senioritis as “a supposed affliction of students in their final year of high school or college, characterized by a decline in motivation or performance.” We asked five seniors from our staff about how they deal with their senioritis. Their answers are below.

Bre Jarvis (Editor-in-Chief):

  • Keep telling yourself that you can overcome this.
  • Don’t.
  • Repeat until you have a mental breakdown, fueled by caffeine the entire process.

Matthew Fiedler (Opinion Editor):

  • Don’t skip school! Tell a friend to give you a call and meet up at school.
  • Set goals that involve coming to school. You can’t succeed if you don’t try!

Denise Uy (Feature Editor):

  • Your teachers have probably given up too by now, so think about how easy your classes are!
  • Look forward to never coming back to Nease again (as a student) in a few short months.

Fara Supre (Co-Publisher):

  • Don’t think that you have all the time in the world to get yourself together; you have 10-ish months…that’s it.
  • Focus on the all the things that you enjoy about school; they will probably outweigh all the negatives.

Nevada Suckow (Staff Writer):

  • Start a count down, but for every day get something productive done.
  • Set goals with friends and hold each other to them.

Hannah Favorite (Co-Publisher):

  • Take a deep breath- know it’ll be over soon.
  • Go to the beach before/after school to breath.
  • Make a bullet journal.
