Why I'm Not That Active

Within the next seventeen days I have eleven scholarship essays due: four in eight days, two in twelve days, three the day after that, and two more the day after that. I'm unlikely to get any of them, of course (very possibly one), but it's worth a shot. A thousand dollars is nothing to sneeze at.

 

I have a 14-page outline due tomorrow, which I haven't started. Another one is due on Tuesday. A massive 10-page intensive research paper had to be started two days ago (a thesis and outline had to be turned in), but I haven't even selected my topic yet because the teacher hasn't been in for a long time and I have no idea what to do for it. I also have to do a project on a Nobel Prize-winning author, but I haven't done anything more than glance at the rubric for that. We're reading Hamlet, which I've been looking forward to all year, but this may have to be my first ever Sparknoted book because I haven't any time to read.

 

I'm getting 20-minute assignments in AP Statistics and 45-minute assignments in Honors Pre-Calc nearly every day. I have to prepare for two sessions in the Model UN, which meets next Tuesday and Thursday after school, and am one of the chief editors for the school magazine, which does the most work in March. This means I have to stay after school on Monday and Friday to work. I'm also scheduled to do an event for National Honors Society fairly soon (no date on that yet), and my comedy troupe is going to have four several-hour practices over the next two weekends, in preparation for a performance on the 20th.

 

I'm also going to youth group, Bible study, and church. On top of this, I somehow still have a social life outside scheduled events; I'm going into Boston with my friend to celebrate his birthday in a couple of days.

 

This is madness. I have no time to moderate or even post right now. I'm fairly happy, though.

It's times like these where one just needs to grab a bottle of Jack and hold on tight.

 

And by a bottle I mean bottles. And by hold on tight I mean drink them.

Nah, I think I'll take up Sals again. :P (Or bottles of Jack. That too could work nicely.)

 

I sleep... oddly. Last night I passed out between two and four in the morning over my Government & Politics textbook and woke up at 5AM, drooling. I spent the next two hours on the couch, because I know I'm all but incapable of getting out of a normal bed with that little rest. I also doze on and off in precalc and statistics (and once during a discussion of torture during Gov). Fortunately, unlike last year, the teachers don't seem to mind.

 

I almost fell asleep on the couch around three this afternoon while I was trying to do precalc. That doesn't bode well for the eight-hour outline ahead. :s

You can't retain that much information if you are so tired all the time.

 

Mayhaps you should take up napping? A little siesta après luncheon could do wonders for your concentration.

Please, please get some sleep. Your putting your body in alot of stress. You may not feel it now but it'll mess you up in the long run if you insist in doing this. Your immune system just fail to cope and your likely to catch illnesses you won't likely get. That's going to harm your schoolwork more than a few more ours of sleep.

 

I agree with Tabt, get one or two hours of shut eye after school. it's proven to recharge you body and will really help you concentrate when burning the midnight oil over an essay or maths exercise. I have no idea how you can do it without rest TBH.

I got 10 hours last night :D

 

slept like a dead man, what's more. I fell asleep with one arm in my hoodie, and one arm out, and I don't think I bothered to even put the pillow back on the bed. But it worked!

 

Peace out, guys, thanks for the advice.
