Senioritis leads to a compulsion to eat. Often, it can also lead to extreme pains, particularly in the wallet and bank account areas of the body. It can also affect other important bodily functions as those afflicted with Senioritis often lose control of their Infinite Campus account as they watch grades and academics spiral out of control.

While teenagers may joke about it and while many adults and parents may not understand it, Senioritis - at least in moderation - is actually a healthy part of teenagers’ lives. Seniors are able to mature independently of their parents, enjoy their last semester of high school and try new things. Seniors step out of their comfort zone in preparation for the next year of their lives: completely independent. The life of one with senioritis may be one of constant travel, food, and new experiences, but at its core, Senioritis is not about skipping school or letting your grades fall. It is about cherishing the moments you have left with those that have been so important in the developmental stages of your life: friends and family.

One thing that never fades away with Senioritis (and maybe even grows stronger) is the teenagers love and devotion to family. When in such a critical condition, many turn to family members in this turbulent time in their lives. My grandparents in India recently called me over when they heard about my condition.

There is currently no cure for Senioritis and the disease is thought to be terminal. While some seniors are affected harder than others, no senior is safe. A potential treatment appears to be friends that attend school regularly as if teenagers have friends that go to school consistently, it alleviates the desire to give in to Senioritis. However, if other friends are also afflicted with a more severe strain of Senioritis, it could be passed down through contact. Discretion is advised.

Senioritis gets many in tune with the world around them. Instead of going to first period, I often let my disease take control and give up the fight to spend time in nature and clear my head.

Senior year isn’t all fun and games, however. While seniors often travel, their increased maturity often leads to increased responsibility. Many seniors often get jobs or engage in extracurriculars. Personally, after school I often intern at Northside Hospital Forsyth. Seniors take on these increased responsibilities because the deterioration of their disease leads them to seek solace in places other than classroom lecture halls and in the pages of a textbook.

When time is limited, as it is for so many seniors, it is important to indulge your inner desires. I do this by trying new foods in new places. This is the shrimp and fish taco sold at Bernie’s in the North Historic district of Savannah, Georgia.

As a teenager with Senioritis, I spend a lot of time eating, traveling, and reminiscing. When I was diagnosed in November, I knew I only had a few more months to live (my current life). I started integrating trips to Atlanta so I could fully take in my surroundings before I pass.

Another view of Atlanta from the top of the Marriott Marquis hotel. In senior year, high schoolers often take time out of their days to interact with and take in the surroundings they weren’t able to do in the past. For seniors at Lambert High School, this often entails trips to Atlanta, going to Ponce City Market, or just taking in the wonders of nature.

Traveling is an important and revolutionary experience that many high schoolers don’t get time to do due to their busy schedules. This is a picture of the Ferris Wheel on the docks of Myrtle Beach in South Carolina, another location I recently visited.
