I have more than an hour of homework a night with no time to do it in class, I'm feeling the pressure from my swim coach, and I haven't even started two of my five usual extra-curriculars (Those being SO and math team) and I'm already feeling over-extended.
I kind of feel the same. With swimming taking about ~2 hours every day, marching band, Robotics, and me getting really serious about violin (2 or more hours every day)...plus the fact that now that I am technically in freshman year, I have a lot more homework than I have ever had. And even if I don't exactly care about flute, I still have to practice at least half an hour every day.
Even without doing anything else, it's past eleven pm when I finish all that. Add in Science Olympiad, drawing out designs for Robotics, the novel I am writing, and everything else I need to do, and I usually don't sleep until past one or two am. Then the next morning I have to get up at four or five am so I can finish whatever I was too exhausted to do the previous night and play violin before school starts (because otherwise I would never finish my allotted violin time). It's incredibly stressful, and I do feel tired a lot, but I have to do it, don't I?
Also, swimming is exhausting.
Yeah, high school courseload + varsity sport = problems...volleyball is 5-8 for me; I don't think it could possibly be at more inconvenient time. I get home with time to barely start my homework and eat something before I have to leave for practice, so I end up really starting homework at 9, after I've gotten home, eaten and showered, and at that point I am absolutely exhausted and would love to just go to bed...Not fun. At least my clubs start mostly after the season ends.

Amen to that. I had to pull approx. 1000 yards on Monday because my pinky toe nail was being weird. That has sucked immensely the past few days as my arms go all "LOL, I worked hard for a practice now I'm not going to work well for few days" on me. And I had shin splints yesterday.

I forgot my copy of TFIOS on my desk today. :(

Make sure you all actually click submit on online college applications before asking your guidance dept to send out your transcripts/letters because if you don't your transcripts/letters will be lost in cyberspace and will never skip off into the sunset with your application. #collegenight #importantreminders

I am completely exhausted, and I still have a football game today to play at.
This is the first time I've actually wanted to sleep in...actually, I don't even know how long.
