Senioritis is back and worse than ever

Cal Petersen, Staff Writer

Senior year is tough to finish even in a normal school year, but especially now during a pandemic.

From being quarantined, to all the new restrictions, “senoritis,” or lack of motivation, procrastination, and hopelessness, is in full effect right now. 

School is hard enough, but getting the email saying that you have to stay home and quarantine makes it much harder. 

“I was really looking forward to going back to school in real life, and on my third day back I got quarantined again,” senior Keegan Gaffney said.  

Being on Zoom, depending if you like it or not, will take away any motivation you had left in the tank to finish out the school year. 

“I don’t even feel like I’m at school on Zoom. It feels like watching your classes in third person,” senior Rachel Grubbs said. 

Despite the challenges, seniors are still trying to enjoy their final few weeks as a high school student.

“I’m still trying to make the most out of this year and have a good time,” senior Michael Cooper said.

“I’m looking forward to coming back to school for the last few weeks,” senior Nick Berretta said. “I feel like it will give back the motivation I had to finish out the year.”

Senioritis may be perceived as laziness, but the workload, Zoom classes, and overall lack of concern for the future is tough to handle. With COVID-19 having impacted our entire school year, seniors are trying their best to end the year strong, despite the obstacles they are facing along the way.
