The sad thing is, she will now refer to herself as a "writer published in major media outlets, such as Time..."

Someone who has completed their junior year, will be a senior at the start of the next school year, but who has not actually started their senior year. Basically, it's shorthand for, "I finished my junior year in the spring, but it's summertime, so I'm not technically a senior yet."

Ah. You Yanks and your turn of a phrase!

I think it's a relatively new phrase. I don't recall it being around when I was college-aged.

Bunch of old-ass motherfuckers in here.

Google books shows it in use at least since the late '50s. It's probably older; I didn't spend a lot of time looking.

Ain't the internet great?

Regional maybe? It was common in my area back in the 90-00s.

I was going to respond but then I figured Pio knew what it meant but was just making a joke. Never underestimate an old person's ability to not know shit, huh?

I looked at that, too. It was, apparently, popular from the 40-60s, fell off some, and has been rising (SWIDT?) since the 80s. I guess "new" was a poor word choice, but it has increased in popularity relatively recently, which would explain why I hadn't heard of it until not too long ago.

Could be. I don't recall hearing it until the last half decade or so, maybe a little bit earlier.

I also wonder if it's socioeconomic. About.com seems to think it has its roots in prep schools, and I have never run with the prep-school set. Oddly enough, the first time I heard the term (and the bulk of the usage I see now) was in reference to sports.

Could be a blend of both, too, since the prep school thing has a regional component.

Considering it takes most of these idiots 5 or 6 years to graduate nowadays terms like junior and senior are pretty much meaningless.

It took me 5 years! But I had a deployment sandwiched in there. #notyouraveragemillenial

It took me nine years! But I had a lot of time off, fun, and other stuff I won't commit to the permanence of the internet sandwiched in there.

I did it in four years, but I had a semester off as part of a 7 month internship.
