Well, its a bit after midnight where I am, but now is as good of a time as ever to say why I'm up so late.
I'm simply enjoying my time that I can stay awake. You could also call this protesting against school--both pretty much mean the same thing in my mind. I want to stay up as late as possible so that I can sleep in as late as possible. That also ties in with both of the earlier reasons. I've wanted to be a teacher my whole life, and yet I'm dreading school. Why? Because school requires the active-ness of my brain, which I clearly don't like. That, and theres something about teachers scaring you to death at the first part of the year with "nobody ever passes this class. Switch out if you can," and the homework overload they give you just to prove their point that just plain stresses me out. When I become a teacher, I swear I will never do this to my students. Haven't my current teachers ever been through high school? Is this whole "lets make the students hate us on the very first day" thing a new trend thats just caught on? Either way, it's got to stop. I have a social life, family life, and school life to juggle right now. As a teenager, all you can ask is a bit of help with it all, not more stress to sprinkle on top.
Ah. That felt good to get that off my chest. Sorry about the rant.
