the worst year of your fucking life. The year that colleges choose to look at the closest out of all your years in high school. Because of said scrutiny, students tend to take an overload of challenging courses. This year is characterized by no more than 4 hours of sleep each night, no social life, mounting pressure, incomprehensible stress, never-ending tests (APs, SAT, etc.) and work. Many combine this with too many extra curricular activities which can also make you want to collapse by the end of every day.
Out of all years, finals week will be the toughest to get through during junior year.
effects of junior year can include, but are not limited to:
sleep deprivation, delirium, reaching brain capacity, involuntary twitching, physical manifestation of stress, decline in grades, and/or spontaneous combustion
Parent: "I know it's Junior Year and all, but it's not healthy to be so sleep deprived..."
Junior: "Colleges don't look at health!"
Friend: "wanna hang out?"
Junior: "Are you crazy?! It's Junior Year, no time to hang."
