The ‘S’ Trifecta
A deep chasm has formed in the halls of Wilton High School between the lions and the dung beetles, the titans and the pipsqueaks, the elderly and the juvenile. While freshmen have completed their first bout of midterm exams and prepare to apprehensively take on the three remaining high school years that stretch before them, seniors have nestled cozily into second semester. With college applications, grades that bear immense weight, and exams behind us, a peculiar ethos takes over. Though second semester has just barely begun, signs of the inevitable “senior slump” are discernible throughout WHS. In keeping with the “S” alliteration of “second semester senior,” I present the “S” trifecta of the winter chapter of senior slump: snow, show, and, of course, slump.
