....so that I could properly employ the usage of a time turner to read all the material I've been given.
No, but really. In all of my core classes aside from math, I've been given HEAPS of pages to read. And what's worse is they want you to THINK while you read it and scrutinize every little detail so that when the AP test rolls around it'll be as easy as girl with daddy issues.
I'm lucky that I'm a fairly quick reader, however reading that much information in a short amount of time has given me headaches. I read in 20-25 minute blocks, and then I switch to another form of homework like math problems or looking at paintings for Art History. I wish I could take leisure breaks, but if I did I would have to lose the hour I've allotted myself to read all of your wonderful blogs. Also, to my fellow seniors in honors classes, it's nice to know that I'm not the only one on the verge of a mental breakdown, hugging my textbooks and rocking back and fourth as I try to verbalize the meaning behind Hawthorne's Young Goodman Brown.
At least I can find solace at the end of the day. I have studio art with my wonderful art friends, and then Art History with equally wonderful, but quirky people. And then I go home and do homework.
