Senioritis and How to Cure It





If you are in high school or have graduated, I'm sure you have heard of Senioritis. The dreaded "disease" almost every senior gets where they start to lose motivation in school. I have self-digonsed myself with this disease, Senioritis. It's not like I'm getting bad grades or anything, I still have that motivation to get all A's, but I defiantly am procrastinating on my assignments. For example, I should be doing my math homework right now, but instead I'm writing this. I will defiantly get it done with putting 100% into it, but that will probably be the day its due. And at the same time it's not like I hate school, I defiantly enjoy going and learning new things everyday, but I still have senioritis, you feel me? I have caught this disease because I'm so excited for college right now, I can't wait! I would say this is good, I'm planning for the future, but I'm not living in the moment. Which is one of my new year resolutions. I want to live in the moment more, I don't want to remember my last high school year as a bad experience. So for my last semester, I have decided to live in the moment and cure Senioritis. How am I going to cure this deadly disease, you ask? Well after hours on hours of hard work, I have come up four incredible remedies that will cure Senioritis.

1. Get Involved

It's your last year of high school and you don't want to spend it doing nothing. Join a club, participate in your school's homecoming rally, go to your school dances, join a sport, try-out for the play, and the list just goes on and on. You don't have to do everything, just a few activities that you will enjoy. Involvement in school will also look good on college applications and scholarships. So, I guess it's a win-win; you cure seniorities and have something else to add to your college application!

2. Make A To-Do List

Make a to-do list of at least three things everyday. This could be as simple as, "clean my room" or a little more difficult like, "save the world today." Whatever you choose, write it down and complete it. Every time you complete something on your to-do list you will feel more motivated to finish the rest of the list and before you know it, you just saved the world and cured your Senioritis. 

3.  Celebrate The Little Things

Celebrate the little things. This could be anything to getting an A on a test or actually waking up to your first alarm. Every time you celebrate a little thing, you feel a sense of accomplishment. You will look forward to the next celebration and forget about your Senioritis. 

4. Treat Yo Self

There is no shame treating yourself senior year. Maybe that means eating a donut when you should probably eat an apple or going on a last-minute road trips with your friend. Whatever you do, don't feel bad! You deserve it! With this in mind, make sure school is still your number one focus, but still treat yo self!

Photo Diary: Zion National Park






This past spring, I was lucky enough to visit Utah for a week. I was awestruck by the landscape. I live in Michigan where it is flat with lots of greenery and lakes, so Utah was defiantly a change of scenery with the desert and the mountains. With 5 national parks and even more state parks, the only thing I planned on doing was hiking. Even though I wasn't able to visit all 5 national parks, I was able to visit two of them: Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon. Zion National Park was absolutely stunning. The mountains (or are they called red rocks?!?) were vibrant colors ranging from red to white; I felt like I was in a postcard! I researched some trails before going there and I saw that The Narrows was one of the most popular hikes; you basically hike in the Virgin River. Sadly I couldn't do that hike beacuse the trail was closed due to high current, just my luck! But there were plenty other trails to hike with incredibly views; bellow is a photo diary of some of my favorite pictures from Zion.
