Looking on the Bright Side

Natasha Aragon, Staff Writer

It is burnout season; the fourth quarter where students lose motivation and begin to stress about their upcoming finals and AP exams. Finding motivation to continue going to school and not giving up half-way is difficult. For many, motivation has been reduced to passing their classes with good grades, but to get out of bed in the morning, you need a better reason. With this article I hope many of you can find a reason to look forward to and end this school year strong! 

Having air conditioning – For Dulaney students this may be a double-edged sword. On one hand we don’t get to miss school because of the extreme heat. BUT on the other hand, school days won’t be added to the end of the year. Thankfully, the unbearable heat will no longer be a problem, and the suffocating sweaty air will be non-existent. 

Beautiful Environment – It has been scientifically proven that exposure to sunlight increases serotonin levels, making someone feel more content. So, although with spring comes daylight savings and less hours of sleep, the extra sun and beautiful view will help you make it through the day. Looking outside and seeing the cherry blossoms throughout your day is great for bringing a smile to your face. Not only that but seeing the plants alive is sure to make you feel the same way. All that color will make up for the dead feeling winter may bring.

Warmer weather – In collaboration with the beautiful environment, spring brings warm weather. With spring we can wear a variety of clothing and stay outside for longer periods of time. Going out for walks and picnics is now possible without freezing to death, so go out and take advantage of the pleasant weather. 

The end of the school year is near – If all else fails to brighten your day, know that this school year is soon over. No more sleepless nights, unbearable homework, and finally, no need to wake up at unreasonable times in the morning. You’ll end this year strong and not have to stress about school. Summer will sneak up on all of us leaving us to enjoy our stressless days.
