I appreciate you adults out...

I appreciate you adults out there acknowledging the unfairness that teenagers must submit to on a daily basis (otherwise known as school). I go to a magnet-type highschool, which is supposedly a highschooler's best bet for getting into a good college, but very few students over the age of sixteen at my school get more than six hours of sleep a night. I myself usually get around five. Frequently, I wonder how directly hours of sleep correlate with hours of solid productivity. Or perhaps it's that, with fewer hours of sleep, your productivity time is bound to be scattered so liberally across the day that it's unlikely you'll find the five minutes that you're best able to complete a specific task.
