Almost everyone has heard seniors talk about their awful case of senioritis where they don’t feel the motivation they used to for school since they know college is right around the corner. But where does it begin? For many it starts when accepted to their top choice school.

Junior year is debatably the most stressful year of high school. ACT, SAT, AP Exams, and all leading up to college applications the summer leading into senior year. For many seniors, they already know what college they’re going to attend by Christmas time or earlier, so the rest of the year has that “why am I here vibe.”

It is my theory that junioritis does exist, in the opposite way that senioritis does. Juniors have every grade count, not to mention no off periods. It’s a grind that doesn’t end until the year does. Clubs, sports, and other extracurriculars. It can get tiring, and that is why many juniors get a case of junioritis quite different from how it is for seniors: a case for 11th grade students who are overwhelmed with their grades, extracurriculars  and what college to go to.

To any junior experiencing stress of junioritis, you’re not alone. The year is halfway over, so just keep pushing through! You have the care-free senioritis to look forward to next year!
