Guys, Ik its only the the third week of school... But HOW MUCH SLEEP AM I SUPPOSED TO BE GETTING!?!?!

I'm lucky to get 5 hours...

(freshman)
Yikes, I believe the minimum is 8 hours biologically. Ik it's not as easy as it sounds, but you should probably go to bed earlier, rather than wake up later(for obvious reasons).

Chances are it's probably a distraction and/or procrastination problem. That was me last year too, but I spent most of my time from after schools/extracurriculars chatting with friends and doing random stuff, then doing homework and debate and scioly and whatever at somewhere around 9 or 10. Your freshman course load shouldn't be insane unless you have (an) AP class(es) or just some really hard class. If you're being really apathetic about doing your homework, there are some easy methods to remedy that - first, I find you can get most of your easy homework (math, science, other nonanalytical homework) done either between/during classes or at lunch, so you don't have to worry about those. The stuff like history notes and essays take more time to think about and generally can't be taken care of in the little bits of time, but getting the easy stuff done first really cuts down on time. Second, collaborating with friends on homework helps a lot. Even if it's really easy stuff, talking to other people in your class helps you think about it more, and it kind of forces you to do homework since nothing else is available. Finally, keeping a planner/some other forms of reminders help (I use post it notes and a desk drawer drawer.) I find that the looming threat of no sleep and endless boredom is great motivation to do my work. On a typical day, you might be done with sports/instruments/extracurriculars/homework by 10 or 10:30, then you can spend as much time as you want doing other things.

I really can't function without at least 8 hours of sleep, so I kind of had to learn this stuff to stay alive ;)

I usually manage to sleep around 6.5-7.5 hours on a school night, which I think is a lot more compared to other people in my grade with my courseload (5 APs, 1 Honors)
