Dad:I wish I could change the voice on this thing.
Dad:to a British guy, that sounds like this, (putting on a long face and mimicking a monotoned British accent) "turn right now, old chap" and when you mess up, "you putz, you missed your turn," and when you miss it again, "I can not believe you missed it again... You dummy. Let me out here, oh God, please."
It’s an awful time to start school. I know, I could be pulling an all-nighter doing a paper…but I’m not in college yet, so here’s me complaining.
I know kids that go to bed at like 3AM sometimes. Heck I stay up late too. 1:15 is definitely late enough. I’ve stayed up till at least midnight all week. They want us to be at the bus stop at 6:30, sometimes earlier, meaning that we have to wake up some time between 5:30 and 6. Over the summer, that’s when some kids GO TO SLEEP.
We’re teenagers. We don’t care that we could have gotten our homework done earlier and went to bed at 9PM to wake up at 6 and get 9 hours. No one cares about getting sleep when it’s 7 and your friends want to hang till 12, or when you’re up at 1 on Facebook or tumblr. The fact is, teenagers will never go to bed early. Normal ones, at least. So why do we freaking start school at 7:15? Honestly, why?
Sure, getting out at 2:15 is great, but if we started at 9, we could go to bed at midnight every single night and get 8 hours of sleep. That would be wonderful.
So cmon, CCS, let’s make a smart decision here and not make kids wake up 6 hours earlier than they’d like, so that they might not actually fall asleep in class, and learn.
