The snow is melting, the sky is blue, and seniors everywhere are suffering from extreme senioritis.

What is senioritis, you might ask?

Senioritis: noun. A crippling disease that strikes seniors. Symptoms include: laziness, an over-excessive wearing of track pants, old athletic shirts, sweatpants, athletic shorts, and sweatshirts. Also features a lack of studying, repeated absences and a generally dismissive attitude. The only known cure is a phenomenon known as Graduation. (Urban Dictionary)

Senioritis. Go up to any current senior in any school and ask them if they are suffering from senioritis. I would bet you the rest of my GQ dollars that they’ll say yes.

Senioritis even can trickle down to second-semester juniors who know that next year will be their final year.

But can you blame us?

For the current seniors, this writer included, doing work and studying is the last thing on our minds.

After all, we have less than 80 days until our time ends here at Muhlenberg, and for many seniors, that time would rather be spent relaxing and hanging out with friends, drinking coffee at Java Joe’s or hitting up Dollar Slice Night at the Tavern, rather than attending class and doing work.

We’ve spent the past four years stressing over homework, panicking about exams and cramming for finals. We’ve done all we can to make sure we’re graduating and for some, this is the last time we’ll be in school.

Add that to the past 12 years we’ve also spent in school and it’s definitely time for a well-deserved break.

The only way that Senioritis will end is when we are officially done with finals and we get to start Senior Week. Graduation is the final end to our laziness.

But until then, we’ll just sit back, relax and enjoy our last few months of college.

So if you need me, you can probably find me in Seegers, sipping my coffee and Netflix-ing the day away. But hey, don’t fault me. Blame my spring senioritis.
