I was strong throughout my past three years of high school.
I worked well, study well, got good grades.
And then senioritis hits me.
But it’s not because I’m lazy.
It’s because everything is being layered on top of each other.
I need to finished college applications by date x and date y.
I need to get my letters of recommendations from teacher x and supervisor y.
I need to do FAFSA by date x.
I need to study for class x and class y.
I need to work from time x to time y on days x and y.
I need to run clubs from time x to time y on days x and y.
Exactly why do I have to do all these things and complete them on the same day?
I’m not lazy. I’m overwhelmed. I’m only seventeen. And I’m fed up.
