A "Serious" Discussion About Senioritis

I felt as though it was about time that I addressed this serious issue that is affecting high school and college students of all ages.  It's time that we've had a serious talk about Senioritis.  

The Symptoms
o Work is not appealing even when the person doing it knows it's good for them or knows that it'll alleviate their boredom
o Homework starts piling up to a point where the student doesn't know what to do
o A student is more excited about getting out of school and heading into summer 
o Usually occurs towards the end of the school year
o Student begins making whimsical decisions-- and they usually aren't for the benefit of humanity
o Fun and play is chosen over work (may or may not be related to the last point)
o Getting lazy and antsy even if the student is not a senior (in other words, it can happen at every age and to anyone)

What To Do If You Or Someone You Love Exhibits Symptoms of Senioritis
o Do not call a doctor.  This is not a serious medical condition.  It can be treated using home remedies
o Parent or compadre intervention may be in order to counter the effects of Senioritis
o More interesting assignments may need to be given (then again, they might not ever get done)
o If all other efforts fail, the condition will undoubtedly clear up by the beginning of the following school year when the afflicted realizes that there is more than a month of school left

Someone had to do it :)

Thanks for Reading!

**Do not take any medical advice from me whatsoever.  I'm afraid of the medical profession, so why join it?
