school vacations, the yays and the nays

This is gonna suck. Since friday evening i have been proggresively going to bed later and later and now look. IM up at this horrible early/late hour of 12:30 in the post meridiam! And you know what? Tommorow im gonna sleep in till 10 and i hate that because then i get used to it and i pay dearly for 5 days after i get back to school . But i dont want to set my alarm and wake up at 6 because it would spoil vacation

Enjoy it. Besides, when you get to college, you can plan your classes for later in the day and sleep in every day!

High school is hell. But hang in there. College will be there before you know it!

I got used to going to bed late in college.
Now I go to bed at 1:30am or later every night and wake up to go to work at 7 the next morning. I usually average around 5 hours and I know I can go so much faster if I just got more rest and sleep.

Don;t worry Phantom, I usually go to sleep around 2AM.

I don't really know why, I'm just not tired until 2 in the morning. I average about 5 hours of sleep a day during the week, and then on weekends that gets bumped up to 8-9 hours since I can sleep in.

But Koffee is right, in college we can schedule all our classes in the afternoon. Thats what my cousin did and now he pretty much has the whole day free and his classes start around 2pm.

I crammed my final year into 2 days of class a week.
Tuesdays and Thursdays: 9am-12pm, 2pm-4pm, 5pm-7pm.

It's nice cause it's a solid day of class with 2 breaks in between.
Plus I get a 4 day weekend with a day between the classes, it was awesome.

ahhh, see my cousin has classes everyday, but only for a couple hours(I don't know his exact schedule).

Wasn't that alot of work to cram in since you have so many classes in two days? I mean, with all the partys and the hangovers and stuff, must have been hard to get your work done

I did the same. There were times I wanted to have 2 days off, so I'd schedule my classes all day for M, W, Fri and have Tu, Thur off. Then sometimes, I just wanted afternoon classes so I could party, so I'd schedule my classes everyday, but start later in the day, after 12pm. My last semester there, I wanted three days off, so I scheduled myself for Tue, Thur all day, and M,W,Fri I was off. It was a great time for me. I partied pretty good.

friday 10:00-11:50

and that just 4 classes at 12 hours. if i had done certain things later on then i'd be wakig up a noon one day and 6:30 the next....... do most schools have schedules like that?

That's your problem. You should know better and choose ONLY all classes with time slots that are late. There's a way to go about it. As a newbie on the block, you didn't figure it out.

Now if those are the ONLY classes offered for your morning classes, you'll just at a school that's REALLY small, and they don't have a lot of selection. Pick the biggest school you can find, select classes later in the day, and get some sleep, boy!

That's kind of funny. My school had 20,000 undergrads and 10,000 grads. I would call a school of 11k just a medium sized school. It means that there aren't enough grads to go around to offer enough diversity.
