All the while, your teachers are piling on the work. You find yourself thinking that maybe you can relax just a little bit and they'll understand. You start to daydream about the spring...prom, a new sports season, graduation...it all seems just around the corner and it's far more fun to think about those things than to keep you head in the books.
You have work to get through in the next few months and it's going to prepare you for the next step, which isn't going to be easier. Besides that, worrying about an application that is already submitted isn't going to affect the outcome and it's apt to take you away from those pressing academic tasks.
It's time to focus.
There's also a little virus called senioritis that starts to make the rounds at this time of year. Resist it!
You have to focus.
It's going to take us several more weeks to get through this process. So, tune out all that background noise.
No matter how exciting the distractions are, keep your focus.
Hang in there!
