"Your senior year should be your hardest year."
That's what I was told by a teacher at Washington County Technical School, where I'm a high school senior.
For most seniors, this is in fact, true. Many seniors, including myself, take on the responsibilities of a job, Advanced Placement classes and some even take college courses. The students can be highly overwhelmed by the amount of schoolwork they are expected to complete by their graduation day.
Ironically enough, my "senior stress" caused the delay of this very article. The responsibilities begin to pile up and can cause unnecessary stress. Taking a day off from your studies by just sitting outside can not only improve your mood, but also your productiveness. Finding time to relax is important and if you don't take at least an hour a day, you could crash.
Don't wait to finish your tasks because the earlier you start, the earlier you finish. Even something like getting your senior photos taken ahead of time might help relieve the workload.
