What students call it:Being burnt out from searching for colleges and applying to colleges and searching for scholarships and applying for scholarships and writing 50 essays and trying to keep track of it all so you don't miss a deadline or send the wrong essay to the wrong place. Not falling asleep until 2 am because you're worried and nervous and stressed out about college and scholarships and the fact that in less than 6 months you're going to be surrounded by entirely new people and you're going to actually have to act like an adult and take care of yourself and your life is going to completely change. Being stressed out because you need to keep up with school in order to get into college, but not being able to keep up because you're overwhelmed with college, and stressing about that on top of everything else. Don't forget it's your last year of high school and you're supposed to be "making the most of it" and "having fun" and if you don't you know you'll regret it after it's over, and you're stressing about that on top of every other piece of shit you have to deal with, so it's no wonder you don't get all your school work done.
