Do You Have Senioritis?
You probably do.
February 25, 2021
It’s senioritis season, EBHS (I mean, second semester)! In just a few months, the senior class will be saying goodbye to high school and moving on to the next chapters of their lives.
The bad news is that it’s only February, and we’re already slacking off. To that end, Bear Hub has created this feature to steer you away from senioritis. Yes, even you. First, take the quiz to see how much senioritis you have, and then check the tips to improve your study habits.
Here we go. Have fun!
It’s time to see how much senioritis you have. Hopefully, it’s just a little, but nobody is immune. Well, maybe you are.
Hopefully, your quiz results were eye-opening. If they took a turn for the worse, yikes! We’ve only just begun the second semester–this isn’t real senioritis yet. It isn’t too late to turn things around, though. Check the tips below to learn how!
Make a to-do list.
By making a concrete list, you won’t be able to leave everything unchecked or unfinished. You can use paper, Post-Its, or an app like Reminders.
Sync the school calendar to your phone.
This way, you’ll never forget what periods we have each day! Block scheduling is confusing, but now is the time to get used to it. Check out this video to learn how (requires EB login).
Set up alarms (for both waking up and going to sleep).
Getting to bed at a reasonable hour can help you stay healthy and be refreshed for the days ahead. It also prevents you from oversleeping and keeps you on schedule.
Reach out to your teachers and counselors.
They’re here to help you! If you’re struggling in a class, your teachers and counselors can arrange for extra help or peer tutoring. If you need help, head to School Counseling’s virtual office here.
Stop scrolling through memes on Instagram!
It serves no valuable purpose besides wasting time. Social media is great, but we can get carried away at times. Plus, you still have all that homework to do!
Once senioritis kicks in come May, Bear Hub will have some more tips. But for now, stop reading this and go study!
