Countdown Calendars and other crazy stuff

As a senior you do as much as possible to stay focused on your work and not become distracted by the fact that this is the LAST fall semester you have to get through, or that you only have FOUR classes that separate you from your degree and adulthood. For example, as I type, a “countdown to graduation” sits to my right, and I am now distracted as I see that I only have 169 days left until………..

Okay, my concentration has returned, but only for a second I am sure. So many things bring upon this senior-year inflicted SADD (student attention deficit disorder) that I am almost always caught in a daydream. I know nothing can take me away from the world’s biggest distraction, known as graduation, so I am left to decorate my student planner with colorful countdowns to the big day or anticipate checking off the next boxed calendar date that hangs on my wall with my red Sharpie. **sigh** What’s next? Making colorful construction paper rings to use as a countdown, where I rip off a ring for every day that passes?? Wait…that doesn’t sound like a bad idea…
