Elephants are so adorable :D
I have recently had to stay up late to complete multiple essays and to study for multiple tests. However, I have noticed a pattern; there is only a maximum amount of work I can do before my brain, legitimately, cannot do anything else. I cannot organize thoughts well enough to even write a simple paragraph!
So, I wonder whether students who consistently stay up later than, ehh, 11 and have to wake up around the 5 to 6 time range are actually accomplishing something while doing homework. Are they—or we— even being productive? Sure, anyone can fill out a worksheet at two in the morning because the answer is in the textbook, staring you in the eye. However, when it comes to heinous, incessant studying and assignments lsuch as writing formal papers in the wee hours of the morning, is it really productive? I know when I read my paper that I wrote at three in the morning—after an accidental three hour nap—, the content of the paragraphs was circular and nothing of real substance. Even though I thougt I was making progress this morning, it was more like a regression compared to the rest of my paper, which was written at a decent hour of the evening, like 6:20.
Wouldn’t it be better to just go to bed at a reasonable time and maybe wake up thirty minutes or so earlier so that your brain isn’t strung out, sleep deprived?
Maybe a lack of procrastination would help in this situation, but sometimes a full schedule and a busy week leaves a person no choice
Summary: sleep is absolutely wonderful! Homework, stop interfering with my sleep! ;)
April. *sigh* Well, what can I say? The weather, it is gorgeous. BUT, you see April, there is so much work and so little time. There is so much work and only so much motivation. But, you know, whatever. At least the sun is shining :)
