The feeling you get when you have a college acceptance letter in one hand, a Cinnabon in the other hand, and you jack it with both hands and skeet all over your bookbag and homework.
Of course, you don't have the motivation to clean off your stuff anytime between 3 PM and 7 AM the next day.
The diary of an infected senior:
Dear diary. I have finally come to terms with my life-threatening case of senioritis. And while my parents and teachers tell me I should "get back on the horse" and study hard, I can only spit out the battle cry of my generation:
SENIORITIS: We'd find a cure, but we just don't fuckin care.
probably why you are here right now
When we reach senior year, we just don't give a damn anymore. it's over. we're better than EVERYONE, including the school's staff. We're unbeatable and immortal until August when we become freshmen again.
-You and 26 of your closest friends pile into a girls' purple hand-me-down minivan, stop at another friends house, steal alcohol and proceed to your basement to play beer pong and take shots. All before 11:30 am.
-"Wait, where is this cafeteria you speak of? is it anywhere near McDonald's?"
-"How do you cure Senioritis?!"
"Not sure man, hit this L while we ponder that thought."

A disease that usually hits high school seniors after they have been accepted to college, or their mid-year grades have been sent out. Symptoms include not caring about one's studies or grades, complete and total lazyness, and skipping classes. Senioritis is usually cured upon graduation from high school. Once this occurs, the student realizes that he/she must do a lot more work in college.
Teacher: Ok guys, 13 of you didn't do your homework. Don't let Senioritis set in!
Student: Who cares, we've been accepted to college and we're graduating in two months!
Teacher: Well, colleges can take away your acceptance.
Student: No they cant.
Senioritis is a colloquial term used in the United States and Canada to describe the decreased motivation toward studies displayed by students who are nearing the end of their high school careers. By definition, Senioritis is not due to the direct physiological effects of a general medical condition such as hypothyroidism or insomnia but is typically said to include: slowness, procrastination, apathy regarding school work, a feeling of entitlement or privilege and a tendency toward truancy, increased drug use, malingering or feigning illness in order to avoid presence in a school setting, cognitive impairments, and changes in sleep patterns. Many high school students find themselves in a type of lame duck situation: their plans are made and a new chapter in their life is about to begin, so finishing the current chapter (the current term separating them from graduation) becomes just a formality or "holding pattern."
