Can You Spell S-T-R-E-S-S?

Saturday night I went to see our school’s play about a spelling bee. It might just be the funniest play I’ve ever seen! Though I had a great time, I couldn’t ignore that nagging feeling in the back of my mind… “I should really be home doing homework right now, rather than having a night out…” In truth, I spent all of Friday afternoon and night doing homework, as well as most of Saturday—I felt I deserved to go out for a two hours, otherwise I might drive myself crazy doing homework! Not to mention I spent most of today doing homework as well. I was so exhausted from all this homework that I had to take a nap, because it was getting to the point where I couldn’t focus on reading 30 pages of European history…. What had intended to be a simple one-hour nap turned into a two-hour one—I woke up in a panic, “Now there’s NO way I can get my homework done! I just wasted an extra hour that I should have been doing homework!” My family was supposed to go out to dinner at Olive Garden tonight, but I opted for a faster alternative because I didn’t have the time to spend much more than half an hour at dinner—I had to get back to, you guessed it: homework. Even now, I still have a lot of it left, after an entire weekend doing homework!

The quarter ends this week, so all my teachers are trying to get everything in. This week, I have a test or project in nearly every class! It’s really taking a toll on me, as I’m sure it is on my classmates, too. We high school students shouldn’t have to be so stressed all the time, after all it is the weekEND.  Shouldn’t we get a chance to just relax?
