Coming Back From Break


Whitney Thelusme, Staff Writer

A few days off from school and your sleeping schedule is all messed up. You go from waking up at 6:00 a.m. and going to sleep at 10:00 p.m. to waking up at at noon and going to sleep at 2:00 a.m.

You know you have school the next morning but you just can’t go to sleep early. You hear your alarm and you do what I call “The Great Stare,” you wake up stare at the ceiling, hating school, you regret going to sleep late and promise yourself you’re going to go to sleep earlier tomorrow, but end up doing it all again the next morning.

We blame school for us not going to sleep on time, funny right?

You pull yourself out of bed, get ready, and you look like you did when you just woke up. Whatever, just go to school.

You walk into first period and you cannot stay awake and your teacher is probably feeling the same way but most teachers hide it well. Next thing you know you’re waking up at the sound of the bell to go to second period and you just missed first period.

Yes, I feel you on a personal level.

The point is, coming back from break, whether it’s Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Spring Break is always hard.
