I Can't Take This Feeling Anymore

No, that is not a reference to the song since I don't know that song very well.

Anyway, that's beside the point. Today I feel I must comment on the idea of senioritis. No matter the age, no matter the grade, no matter the year, anyone can get it. As the school year comes to an end, most students beg for it to be over. One doesn't have to be a senior to get senioritis, which is what I'm learning right now.

It's a painful process, coming to terms with this idea. Unfortunately, I'm not quite done with it yet--I won't be done with senioritis until school's officially out for the summer.

One of the things I really hate about this knowledge is the fact that I'm a college student at BYU. Of course the classes are going to be harder--that's inescapable. However, the degree to which I want to be done frightens me a little. I had every right to feel this way in high school. But now, I feel I should have more enthusiasm. Which I do. I guess it's just because the classes are so much harder that I just can't wait to be done. Not to mention, generals are almost ever fun for me.

But anway, my whole point is that I'm stuck in this black hole of senioritis and it is not fun.

To fellow BYU students, two and a half more weeks. To BYU-I students, you're halfway there; just keep going! To other college students, you're really close to the end of your first year; you can make it! To high school students, you only have a month and a half left; just keep breathing. To school-less adults, lucky you.

Happy Wednesday!
