The third quarter stress is rising as Archbishop Ryan’s 2016-2017 school year is flying by.

The third quarter is the quickest quarter of the year, or at least it feels that way. With teachers cramming in last-minute projects and tests at the same time,  it has the students scrambling and stressing to get it all done.

“Everything is stressing me out. Prom is coming up; I have so much due this week. I don’t really know what’s going on,” said Britni Smith, a junior.

With the flowers starting to bloom and the temperature rising, students are wishing they were outside in the nice weather and not sitting inside doing school work.

“Summer’s like here, or at least I wish it was,” said junior Alainna Pettit. “The weather is starting to get nice and I just want to be outside when the weather is nice.”

Along with the school work, there are spring sports tryouts, proms and SATs for some.  Many seniors have already chosen their college for next year but others wait for some last-minute deliberation from colleges before they make that all-important decision.  Deposits are due and the thoughts of moving away with strangers as roommates is another stressor.

Many students are anxious about their summer plans.  Teens need to compete with many unemployed adults for summer jobs so the stress of finding work, or trying to convince their current employer to increase their hours, can be overwhelming.

To help with stress students should eat healthy meals, get a good night sleep and take deep breaths. Remember summer’s just around the corner.
