March is the WORST month for work. This seems to be the month that teachers have decided to pile on all of the work they didn’t manage to give us the previous semester. Dear teachers, what are we cramming for! Its the middle of the semester. I did not become Super Student who has the ability to complete all of my work, after having a long practice, and still get a good nights sleep. I am currently suffocating under the amount of work I have to do for and it doesn’t help that track season just started which means I have meets both during the week and on weekends. But the best part about all of this work is when teachers wonder why every student in class is either sleeping or looks like they should be. I can clue them in on what’s going on. In the past four days we haven’t gotten more than five hours of sleep a night. It is becoming slow torture to wake up every morning knowing that I have to go through the same routine and experience the same pain when I go home and realize that once again I will be staying up until 2 in the morning to complete whatever work it is from each class.
So lately I have been very busy and I’m not sure I like it. I don’t think being busy is a bad thing if you are doing things that you find fulfilling, but I don’t think I ‘m doing the things that I want to be busy with. Most of my time is taken up by schoolwork. I find myself being consumed and drowning in the piles of work my teachers give me. I know homework is necessary sometimes, but when I’m sitting in my room all weekend doing work, I find it frustrating knowing that I could be outside experiencing everything life has to offer. Instead I’m stuck inside writing down notes about things I don’t usually care about.
