As the school year comes to a close, many seniors have admitted to having the problem that seniors have faced for generations: senioritis. Seniors Emma Cross and Mason Davis have had senioritis toward the end of the year. 

While she is looking forward to getting out of high

school and pursuing other things, Cross will miss a lot of the things she got to do when she was at MV. 

“Over the past few weeks, I’ve been a little sad realizing that high school is almost over,” Cross said. “But at the same time I’m so excited to graduate and see what the future holds for me.”

There are a lot of emotions that come with graduating high school, but as Davis nears the end of the year, he wants the last few days to be over.

“Knowing that these are the last few days of high school makes me both anxious and excited to just wrap up and finish everything.” Davis said. 

Senioritis can affect motivations to get school work in, or to do anything at all. Cross said that it has taken a toll on her academics. 

“Over the past few weeks I’ve lost a lot of motivation to complete my homework and study for tests because I just want to be done.” Cross said. 

Even though Davis is excited to start a new chapter of his life, he knows he will miss his time in high school and would have liked to slow down his last week.

“Even though I was ready for the year to be over, I’d have slowed the days down since they marked the very last time I’ll be a K-12 student.” Davis said. 

Since this year has been a little different than past years seniors are really excited to start a new chapter of their life, they wanted the last few weeks to speed up. 

“I would want the days to speed up because I’m ready to graduate and start a new chapter in my life.” Cross said. 

Though this year may have been rough, and senioritis has taken its toll on the senior class, high school will always have great memories.
