10 stages of realizing you're a college senior

1. Denial

This just can't be. It feels like only yesterday you were visiting campus for the first time.

2. Grief 

You need a moment to be sad about your older friends graduating.

3. Optimism

On the bright side, this means you're now the top dog! The big (wo)man on campus! SENIOR.

4. Panic

 Wait, this means you have to become an actual human adult... Chaos ensues.

5. Loss of motivation

At this point you realize you're just so close. "So if I'm a senior, then, like, I stop doing work... right?"

6. Fear

"Wait, will I even graduate?" *aggressively browses ConnectCarolina*

7. Panic (again)

That's right, you have to take that one class you've been putting off for three years. Good luck, buddy.

8. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

You still have a summer to lay around. Unless you got that internship that will begin preparing you for the real world. Then your time has come.

9. OMG I'M OLD

You still eat EasyMac and lay in bed until 4 p.m. every Saturday, yet somehow you have a little under a year to become a fully functioning adult.

10. Acceptance

The mix of emotions you are all feeling is probably just a little peek into what the next school year has in store. Might as well enjoy the madness.
