Probably most of you have stayed up all night at least once in your life, owing to several possible reasons, such as that crazy party on your first years of university, or that awful night working against the clock before the submission deadline, or maybe when your babies wouldn’t stop crying all night. And it wouldn’t be unlikely that you hadn’t had time to get a proper sleep the next morning since you had to go to work or to class or wherever. Then you were bond to face this tricky dilemma: Is it better to sleep one hour or not sleeping at all? In order to answer this question I’m going to introduce you to the mechanics of the sleeping process. According to experts, during our sleep a series of 4 to 6 cycles takes place.
University students including myself time and again lay off sleep for other happenings such as studying, doing homework or even just staying up for the night with a friend. Through a biological clock called the Circadian rhythm, our bodies follow the twenty-four hour cycle of each day and night. Throughout the week, postponing sleep and missing meals makes it arduous to concentrate in class. After lunch, I tend to grow heavy-eyed and tired which leads to me struggling to focus on my other courses. In the afternoon, this impacts my body because it does not give me energy, but instead makes me snooze earlier in the day.
Ever since anyone can remember, school has started at around 7:30 am or earlier, and around 80% of schools in America start before 8:00 (Education Degree). Recently many studies have shown that school starting before 8:30 am is actually negatively affecting students. During your teenage years your body is making a lot of changes which causes your melatonin to change and that will cause your body to want to stay up later. When you mix late nights with early school times, students will not get the full 9 hours of sleep and many students end up deprived of the sleep they desperately need. This is causing grades to go down, depression, inactivity in daily life, and it’s even causing students to start drinking, smoking, or doing harmful drugs.
No evil would dare step a murderous foot in my room. I felt safe in my own bed as I should’ve been. The nightlight stayed for many years until one day I realized that maybe I didn’t need it. I felt like a coward because I needed a light to go to sleep and to protect me against imaginary and improbable threats. After a couple of days of contemplating taking the nightlight out or not, I eventually manned up and did it.
Sleep paralysis is the rare occurrence in which a person is in a transition state between awakeness and sleep. This state can cause a person to be aware of their surroundings but not able to move. On the night of the entanglement, I had been attempting to sleep for hours, but nothing provided support. Provided that I had school the next day and had to wake up early, I chose to just lay there until I drifted off. After maybe 25 minutes of motionlessness and
I go through the same struggle almost every night. Most students can relate to that problem, and that is a big part of why we despise school. Another huge reason is because of the early start of the day. Everyone is tired in the morning which stretches out the morning and makes it feel an hour longer. I always have to rush in the morning because I oversleep by accident and Andrew has the same issue.
On this week’s Latin weekly test, I finally received a grade I can be proud of. There were days that I almost broke into tears studying Latin or doing homework question with Latin tutor or the professor. It’s something, a sign of improvement. But for me, every time something good happens, unluckiness knocks at my door. After days of feeling stomachache and unable to even sleep at night, I missed two morning classes today because I was exhausted from the pain.

Well it could be because in the mornings they’re drowsy and not really wake yet. Imagine going down a road in the morning not have any sleep but 5 hours asleep? You're not really gonna be awake and not all of your senses will be active. All these accident rates could drop because if they get enough sleep and are more active before school they’ll be more awake. If we don’t get enough sleep our bodies will be prominent to sickness.
Anxiety use to be something that l feared. It was like a disease that l felt l had no cure for, and would have to live with for the rest of my life. I constantly felt trapped and scared that at any moment, l would have a panic attack and spiral out of control. It was a scary idea to wake up to every morning, and to fall asleep to every night. My last two college years were not as enjoyable as l wanted it to be, because l kept letting my anxiety get in the way of my life.
When I woke up this morning I woke up a lot earlier than I had anticipated – probably because I was nervous about the job shadow, I was lucky enough to lay in bed and let myself relax for another hour.

It was 8:07, Saturday morning, when I awoke to an insufferable rapping on my door. I tried to ignore it, and sleep, but the knocking persisted. This went on for no less than thirty minutes, until, it suddenly stopped. The abrupt silence was unnerving. I sat up in my bed, wondering if they had finally given up, and gone away.
So many times I have gotten sick because I got up so early and it was cold so I got sick because I didn 't get enough sleep. This isn 't just me who suffer from this, every kid does. Teens need sleep to develop and to be healthy. I have gotten better grades in later classes then early classes because my brain is able to wake up.
