Urban dictionary defines ‘summeritis’ as “a disease that is rapidly spread among students the last few weeks of school before summer break.. symptoms include extreme laziness, back sassing teachers, sudden lack of effort and concern about grades, and falling asleep in classes. im starting to feel really lazy and everytime i take a test i get a worse and worse score… whatever its probably the summeritis.”

welp, it may be the hypochondriac in me, but I definitely have a serious case of summeritis.

I know this because I start missing little things like my blonde hair and making lanyards at camp. I start spending more time outside and opt towards wearing my birkenstocks over my moccasins. I then realize these things are all rooted in summer. All these things I oh so dearly missed. I realize that I am craving summer.

I know I am not the only one. I’ve been seeing those ‘missing summer :((‘ posts since February.

I hate that I am counting down the days but I cannot help it. I think one of the many curses of junior year is that i’m just wishing the year away, counting down everyday to the weekend, and wishing I was a senior. On one hand I get it, because you know, junior year sucks. But also on the other hand, I know I am gonna miss it the second it’s gone. I guess this is just one of the many ongoing paradoxes I find myself in.

But seriously, it is so hard for me to do honestly anything. HOW can anyone expect me to do homework when it is so nice outside? The urge to finally have my junior year to come to an end is just too strong for me to do tedious tasks.

So my friends who are also struggling with this major first world problem, here’s this:

We can’t ignore the absolute fact that we still have 2 more weeks. And unfortunately, even though we are in a world of technology, time traveling is not yet possible. 

Do not let your months of hard work go to waste. I know studying or completing work is basically an impossible task, but think of all the effort you have put in since the start of this year. 

Finish off strong and happy. This is our last push and then we are smooth sailing into three months of bliss! Our attitudes perceive our perceptions, so keep on smiling! 

I wish you the best of luck surviving through these next two loooong weeks. I BELIEVE in you!!

Until next time, REMEMBER!!

Make happy YOUR habit!
