When I look back at my high school days, I am amazed at the energy I had. My schedule looked something like this:
5:30 -Wake up & get ready. Leave the house by 6:00.
6:30 - 9:30 -Work at Espresso Stand, do any homework that hadn't gotten finished yet.
9:30 - 2:15 -School
2:30 - 4:00 -Track practice
4:30 -9:00 -Work at McDonald's
Then I'd go home & be in bed around 9:30. I also worked at McDonald's on Saturdays & some Sunday afternoons/evenings.
The early mornings weren't so bad, maybe b/c once I got to the coffee shop I loaded up on caffeine. But the thing that I really remember about that time was the dreams I would have.
I dreamed about sleeping on the couch that was in the back of my History class. I dreamed about sleeping in my car. I dreamed about sleeping in my bed at home, and I dreamed about sleeping on the couch at my friend's house.
Maybe because I knew that I wasn't ACTUALLY getting enough sleep, I tricked myself into believing I had, since I had dreamed about having naps all the time. I don't remember being tired at all, but I still remember those dreams quite clearly.......
