The first semester is finally behind us. Freshmen aren’t so fresh anymore, sophomores are continuing with their “chill year” and juniors have entered a new chapter of hell. The seniors, however, have entered a period of total bliss: nothing is important. It seems that in the nine days that have gone by since midterms, all cares have gone out the window. A shocking number of seniors have been reported sleeping in class, failing to even Sparknote their English readings, and in some instances, cutting class for mid-day Brueggers or Chipotle runs.
Teachers are appalled, and the administration has caught wind of the latest phenomenon dubbed “senioritis.” Even though every senior class in the past has been hit by this epidemic, this year, it is worse than usual. Anonymous sources have reported that the administration met during the F day faculty meetings on Wednesday to discuss what to do with the senior class. The same source reported that Headmaster Wilson has threatened to give the seniors finals if they do not get their act together by the end of January. This is an alarming development, given that usually exams are only threatened in the case of a senior prank. Hopefully they can get it together in time!
