I'm really wondering what it is in Alabama junior high curriculum that keeps you up past midnight, sometimes to two in the morning.

I don't know about nght, but since I am tired after school, I nap for at east 2 hours on mst day, which is why, as a net total I get around 7. Also it depends a lot on my homework load. Sometimes I can go to bed at 8 and get 10 hours of sleep (rare) A middle load results in 5.5 to 6, especially considering I have to get up at 5:30/6 most days. You also have to take into account that I came home at 5:45, so I can't start anything until 6:15, and there is time for unwinding/dinner/other things, and oh yeah, this mysterious concept called "fun" which happens to occur on rare occasions. All accounted, I end up spending 3ish hours on homework, 1 hour on any given extracurricular, and the remainder of my time doing house things. So it really isn't much of a stretch that even middle schoolers get to bed at 11 or midnight. If anything, my middle school teachers gave MORE work than my high school teachers, because I was in a demanding program.

I also want to know why forever starts school at 7:00 in the morning.

I start at 7:10. It's 0 period Spanish I, for people who already have an elective but want to do Spanish I too. That way, I can do orchestra and Spanish I.

Zero period starts at 7:00, and quite a few students at our school take it. It's for those who would like to take Spanish/jazz band, but don't want to sacrifice some course for it.
There really is nothing in the curriculum (nor any combination of things) that would keep a regular student up past midnight (unless you're someone trying to keep his/her 105 GPA polished up and looking good, which is about nobody), except for maybe the odd project or two, which the nerds tend to finish with time left over. But, since our school has a tendency to make it to nationals like every year, a few of us tend to prepare for nats early on. That's usually what keeps me up past midnight. Sometimes, our English teacher gets a little homework happy ( :| ) and gives us an assignment involving art. On top of all other things, artistic homework takes forever (for me), so something like that may keep a person up.
We've had some teammates have close brushes with national titles in the past, but I don't think we've ever actually had a gold medalist in a study event before. We've had a silver though (not bad for the deep south). :P
foreverphysics is NOT your typical specimen of a student. More like more-intellectual-than-most-people-can-imagine-or-feel-comfortable-with. :lol:

Wait, most people don't have normal first period at 7:05?
It's 10:58, and I'm still doing my Exploravision project. We have to hand them in tomorrow, and I'm waiting on my partner's bibliography.
