Yesterday I thought I felt it starting…and today…I knew it was for real. Some people started having senioritis last semester, and I knew that it would hit me eventually…but I didn’t expect it to hit me like a ton of bricks. I had homework and other things to do last night, but all I wanted to do was socialize and wander. Then, once that feeling left….I was exhausted and I fell asleep on the table where I was studying. This morning I woke up at 8:05 a.m. when my class started at 8:00 a.m., which was the first time I have overslept all semester. I made it through my morning classes somehow without coffee, but by this afternoon….I was a lost cause. I spent 2 hours in Starbucks trying to take notes on my reading for my last class of the day, but even the smallest things kept distracting me (maybe it was because I was in Starbucks). Then I went to my last class, and just felt completely dead and lethargic….so I’m pretty sure that this is it….I truly do have senioritis.
I always told myself that I would never have it….but I do. It’s nearly impossible to get up the motivation to do anything other than go hang out with someone, go to Starbucks, or to get food. And the worst part is…I’m slap happy 75% of the time. This gets pretty exhausting…so I have enlisted the help of my dear friend Starbucks to get me through the next 6 weeks or so. Today, I was double fisting my Starbucks, with a venti water in one hand and a tall blonde roast coffee in the other…and yes, both were completely necessary. So I can only hope that I find the money somewhere to feed this massive caffeine addiction that I feel coming on….because the next few weeks are going to be rough.
