Getting Up In the Morning


At night I always try and do what everyone tells me " deal with it as it comes and not worry about it as much " so I tell myself ' I'll worry about it tomorrow ' even though this hardly ever works and I'm always thinking of every repulsive direction that the next day could go in. So the next day when the disturbing sound of the alarm goes off the realisation kicks in, that I can no longer just deal with it tomorrow, it's in about 1.5 hours time. I lay there for the little time I have and think about all the ' friends' and revolting people, and explore every aspect of what school brings, the fake friends, work, teachers everything and the left over scum of bullies ( that is the majority of my class ) and begin to get angry that this is what I'll have to do for the rest of my schooling life ( a long time, years ) and from what I've heard it's the same with work. I honestly want to be retired before I've even started my GCSES or had any form of job. I try telling this to everyone ( that ...more

I actually like exam week because it's a good break from the normal class time, and I usually get done with homework pretty quick. I like going to gym class because then I can actually wear shorts! The people at my school might be annoying but my best friends make up for that. :) Everything in school I can deal with to a certain degree except for one thing: getting up in the morning. Literally no matter how hard I try I can never get more than 7 hours of sleep on a school night, which is not good for my health or my learning ability. Everyday when the alarm goes off I count down the days to the weekend. If school started at 10:00 in the morning, I would actually love school and look forward to it!

I agree with whomever said "Okay this is ridiculous, I am waking up earlier than my parents wake up. It's a waste of time, and everyone claims to say that we don't go to bed early or we just are using devices, its because we at least need like hours of sleep", we just need more sleep! Adults go to bed at like midnight or later, and then they wake up after us, and their like 'Why are you so lazy and tired? Oh, I know! You were on electronics last night, weren't you? You stayed up, right? " Well news flash- you guys are on your electronics or iPads or whatever too! We sometimes go to sleep before them, and wake up before them, and yet we are still tired merely because of how our bodies work! (Why can't school be just 30 minutes later? )

I have to wake up at 6:30 (there's no way I'm sleeping at 8:30, that is ridiculous) if I have any hope of catching the bus. It seems so intensely counterproductive to have school start this obscenely early when teenagers aren't even neurologically wired to feel sleepy until 1 AM. I feel as though half of my problems in life would disappear instantaneously if only school started at 8 or 9. Besides, a lot of really important growth is happening in the teenage years, the fact that I'm losing about two hours of sleep a day is detrimental to my health. I should file a complaint... - keycha1n

My dad has a terrible temper and would pour water on me or slap or even blow a foghorn man I hate it. its ridiculous I have nothing to look forward to, so whats the point? If you want to get rid of me there's other places for me to go. talking about school should always be interesting well it isn't. unless I went to a school that actually met my interests then I would get up because I would be excited to go and have something to look forward to everyday. when mom says time for school I wouldn't sarcastically say "yay"

Every school morning I always wake up in a bad mood when I know I have to get ready, see a bunch of people I hate and do a bunch of things I hate. I hate that I have to wake up at the same time every day to go to the same place every day and see the same people every day. I can't stand this dull stressful routine, I need more exciting things in my life than this. Forget this stupid school of government-filtered education and corporate testing systems. I'll quit and teach myself twice as much, and things that I actually want to learn about.

In the US, most people wake up around 5-6am to get ready to go to school. I don't know any other country that does this! I'd say, my performance would be better if school started at 9:10am instead of 8:10am. An hour can make a hell of a difference!

I hate getting up in the morning. I always tired and never able to stay awake. Right now I failing in school because of this. I think school retarded. I knew all the answers to a test but since I couldn't keep my eyes open I got a zero for not being" active enough" as she said. So when I protested by saying she was treating me unfairly. She told me to go to the principals office. So I got suspended a day just for being to tired to do a test. School hates me and I hate it. If anyone agrees this retarded respond to my post. thanks so much

I wake up for school at 5:00 EVERYDAY which is not good news since I am not a morning person and I am so tired and it doesn't help when my mother is over here screaming my name and my Sister is over here taking the very warm covers off of me so I can freeze I mean why do we have to go to school with teachers who yell at u and people that u just hate and wanna kick so hard because they are dumb. We shouldn't have to do this.

I know it's the worst. Everyday I wake up at 6am to go to a place I don't even like. I mean I know it helps us in the long run for work. I just hate that student have to wake up super early just to go to place we don't like, see people we don't want to see, and listen to annoying lecture don't even prepare us for life. Like to get a job you still have to go through college because it doesn't prepare you for your career. Not only that we don't even get paid to do it.

You don't know how much I would pay my parents just for 30 more minutes of SLEEP. Honestly, I'm a great student but I always think of my bed when I'm at school. Teachers should give us beds. It's the LEAST they can do after making us learn uncountable things. And another thing is, my bed is so comfortable! I love my pillows, covers, etc. I would LOVE school to start later. - davakoh

Damn it, you wake up at the ass crack of dawn, or even before the sun is up. Who's idea was it for 12 year olds to wake up at 7:30?! You do this all for just an "education". You're sleeping, it's an awesome dream, and then... "BEEP BEEP BEEP! " it ruins your dream. Plus, it's so annoying that it won't stop until you slam your fist onto the "snooze" button. So, you're cozy and warm... AND THEN YOUR PARENT OR YOUR GRANDPARENT... barges unto your room, rips the blankets off of you, and says "Up up up, time 4 school." Then, you're freezing cold again. THEY SOMETIMES RIP THE BLANKETS OFF OF YOU, THEN GRAB YOUR FEET AND DRAG YOU OUT OF BED! You ignore your parent, pull the blankets up again, they walk back, and rip it off you again. Then you drag your own ass, out of the warm bed into cold, cold air. Have your clothes thrown at your face, snarf down your breakfast, and then get your bum to school, then see people who judge you and gossip about you, have 7 hours of boredom, get more work ...more - XxDJPartyGirl1034xX

I was having a dream about fat dogs (the perfect dream) and I was so warm and cozy dreaming of fat fuzzy dogs playing with me- I was a fat fuzzy dog too! But then I felt cold and my mom said time to wake up. My purple fuzzy blanket was on the floor and I was mad. WHY DO FOURTH GRADERS WAKE UP AT 3:00?! I NEED MY BEAUTY SLEEP! THE BULLIES WILL GET TO ME, LIKE ALWAYS.

I'm in the 6th grade, I'm almost 12 and I have to wake up at 4.30 am. Don't believe me? You wouldn't know that unless you're all stalking me. I woke up at 4.30. So early, the sky is still quite dark. I took a shower, get dressed, have breakfast and wait for the bus. School can get intense in social and education at the 6th grade until high school - MLPFan

If there is any part of a school day of that is bad it is the morning. Because when ever its very cold I want to stay in bed or when I'm very sleepy but no! My mom forces me to wake I when I don't she picks at my damn zits in my back. When she does this I always need to tell A. Stop it it hurts and B. It's not good as zits hold bad germs and other things that can infect a person.

It is the worst! Going to sleep at 11 or 12 because of homework and yet you have to wake up at 6 am 5 days a week. We rely on coffee or energy drinks to get us through the day, but it doesn't work all the time. We are deprived of our sleep and that isn't good for our physical and mental health. Studies have proven we need more sleep but we can't seem to find time to get it. :/

I wake up at 4 in the morning everyday because either we have something that day which I my mom thinks it's so important, or she most likely takes forever to get dressed. I take 10 minutes getting ready. And if I don't get up when my parents call me, my mom decides to get water, rip off all of my covers, then sprays that water everywhere on me. It's not fair!

I hate getting up in the morning for school, especially on rainy days! It feels so cold and your eyes are shut and are not willing to open. It feels totally tiring at school! Why do teachers say you have to get good sleep when they tell you to come on time? WORST THING EVER!

My mom has an early job which means I have to wake up very early for school and I feel horrible every morning and am not happy to come from bed to school with rude teachers and people I don't like and then I come home and am exhausted because of 8 hours at school plus waking up early and I can't wait until summer because this is killing me

It makes a lot of sense to simply push back school times. At least in middle school and high school, considering our brains are literally rewired to sleep later during adolescence. Honestly, this is a critical time of growth for me, why permanently stunt my growth, both intellectually and physically by making me wake up so early? - keycha1n

I always sleep early as 8:30 or 9PM because when I woke up in the morning I'm still sleepy and exhausted and if I late I was so hurry take a bath eating and preparing and some of my stuff was left in my house including some books and notebook especially my money to buy a food snack

This is just the worst. Like why couldn't school start at like 9 or something then end at like 4 that would be. I have to get up at 6:30 and I arrive at school at 8 and school bus picks me up at 7:20. Like why can't they make it easier for everyone. Teachers included cause I don't think teachers enjoy waking up at 5am just to get to school

Several studies have shown teens minds during puberty go through a shift in their biological clocks, causing them to get tired later at night and properly function later in the day. Even though students clearly perform best past 10 Am, schools continue to start earlier and earlier.

GOOD LORD I HATE THIS! You are dreaming about something and your sleeping peacefully under your covers until... TIME FOR SCHOOL! Your dream is interupted and your still tired and you are forced to eat breakfest and get dress and go outside and wait for the bus and your cold. WHY CAN'T SCHOOL LAST FOR ONLY 3 DAYS!

In my school, I have to wake up at 5 In The Morning. Why would anyone put that as a rule. Tomorrow is Saturday. Saturday that is supposed to be a time to kick back and relax, Turn into a disaster. Why? Senior Student Tryouts! I have to wake up so early like in Weekdays. I hope it gets easy to ace. I hope I get a one hundred (highest grade) - MLPFan
