Dear Abby,

I have senioritis and I don’t want to go to class. I also have a lot of stress from school and work. What do I do?

Thank you,


Dear Not-So-Silently-Suffering,

I know we are all feeling stressed since we are halfway through the semester and midterms are approaching. Being a senior can also make it difficult, almost being done with school makes you feel like you don’t have to keep up on school and work. It is important to make a schedule to ensure you have enough time to do everything you need, this also includes relaxing and taking time for yourself.

If you are too stressed, it can be worth it to ignore your responsibilities for a while. Though it is nice to take a break, going to class is important to make sure you stay up on your work. People often feel stressed out when they procrastinate and have multiple assignments to work on, so doing your work on a regular basis will help. Time management is everything and buying a planner (and actually using it) helps to keep you on track.

Good luck with the rest of the semester and with work!

Dearest Abby
