“Senioritis” need not ruin final year


Olivia Loop- Mustangs Ahead

Seniors(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- The start of the second semester means seniors are this much closer to graduating. Senioritis is starting to affect many seniors as the school days get closer to graduation. LRHS seniors were asked to provide some tips to overcome senioritis.

Senior Gabbi Tomaselli said, “I just have the mindset that I worked hard for the last three and half years, so I need to finish out this year the same way. I don’t want to throw away all my hard work by being lazy, so I keep that as my motivation.”

Some seniors use different organization methods to stay on track with their goals.

Senior Hayden Springer said, “I try to stay organized by using my planner to keep track of all my assignments and that way I will not procrastinate. I keep in mind that I am going to college next school year and I want to maintain my good grades.”

Senior Hayes DuJardin said, “I generally try to set reminders on my phone for myself to get things done. Otherwise, I’ll just keep forgetting what I have to do.”

An option provided at LRHS is the ability to take classes online and be able to go off campus.

Senior Chloe Nelson said, “I chose to leave early from school so I wouldn’t have to sit in a chair for 7 hours. I have two classes online, so I feel a little more motivated to do things when it’s on my own time.”

Senior Chris Georges said, “I think the most important thing for seniors is the way they think. For example, I do my best to prioritize the most important things for me at this moment and to leave everything not related to my future for later or downtime.”
