One study on the effects of amount of sleep on GPA showed that those who got less that 5 hours of sleep per night received just under a 3.1 GPA on average (Source B); on the other hand, those who got 7 or more hours of sleep per night received just under a 3.4 GPA on average (Source B). This is most likely because "sleep helps the brain to commit new information to memory" (Source H) which improves learning and memory. Delaying school start times would help to improve the GPA's of students.
Everyone has heard of the "freshman 15," and everyone does their best to avoid it. However, many are avoiding the freshman 15 for all the wrong reasons.

In the summer of 2003, my family went on a trip to Disney. I dressed myself in a non-matching outfit and my mother told me to change before we went out. I threw a fit, accused her of calling me blind, and refused to talk to her the rest of the day. It was totally unnecessary and over-dramatic; especially, since my mom was only saving me from embarrassment. Recently, there has been controversy over a certain topic.

This is a problem because our generation is not learning how to deal with real life problems on their own, is relying on social media for their self-esteem, and is completely spoiled and ungrateful.

It was important for me to have one thing I could be confident with through all of the drama and chaos in my life.
