Four year’s then real life

I always thought that senioritis was just a word people made up, an excuse for being lazy. Then I became a college senior. It's not laziness so much as it is an actual affliction based on fear, being burnt out and excitement. The fear is that I won't have a job when I finally leave this school.

Granted, it is a noble cause, but if you lie down in the middle of a busy street pretending to be a dead Iraqi don't be upset when someone runs you over.
