Wow. Senioritis is real. It hasn’t hit me, but many of my friends are starting to feel its wrath. I really never believed in this mythical realm of senior year. If you’re anything like me when I was a junior, sophomore, or freshman than you do not believe in senioritis. So, here’s ten tips for when it hits you during second semester senior year:
1.) If you’re a schedule setting person then make sure to have a calendar and a schedule for each day to eliminate procrastination.
2.) Set goals for yourself and make sure you treat yourself when you make those goals – go out to ice cream, dinner, or go shopping.
3.) Think in the long term and about your future endeavors.
4.) OR…. think in the short term (if it helps just to see the day to day).
5.) Wake up and fall asleep at the same time every day in order to set a sleeping clock within your body.
6.) Plan your outfits/meals/etc. in order to regulate and add structure to your life.
7.) Try, Try, TRY to not get behind or else you may fall into a deep, dark hole of homework, essays, and all of the above.
8.) Join study groups, start study circles, or even just do your homework with friends – this can help a million times over to just have people with you.
9.) Make sure that you make time for hanging out with friends and doing what you want. (BUT, make sure to only allow certain amounts of time to these activities so procrastination doesn’t set in).
10.) Remember that the end of high school marks an end. Cherish every moment and push it out – you’ve come so far already.
