According to the urban dictionary;
noun. A crippling disease that strikes high school seniors. Symptoms include: laziness, an over-excessive wearing of track pants, old athletic shirts, sweatpants, athletic shorts, and sweatshirts. Also features a lack of studying, repeated absences, and a generally dismissive attitude. The only known cure is a phenomenon known as Graduation.
Here I am in the home stretch of finishing Grad School (a place a never thought I would be) I find I have caught this likely contagious case of Senioritis.
This strain though looks a bit different. The athletic wear has been exchanged for slightly classier yoga wear although one never actually makes it to the gym anymore. The mere wearing of said yoga wear is considered a huge achievement. Coffee in take has quadrupled and is not questioned when you are still drinking it after 8pm. Netflix has become the greatest of companions since free time is sparse and difficult to plan around. While friends have moved on with their lives, Netflix has sat there waiting with that next episode of a TV show you would have never watched before but now cannot seem to stop. Much of my time is spent contemplating not life after graduation but the manner in which I would fake my own death, flee the country and attempt the escape the mountain of student loans I will soon be facing. Hobbies now only include naps, existential moments and more naps.
Don't mind me. The cure is coming. :)
