Free Time

During the week students are almost always on the go. Between homework and after school activities, some students have little to no free time.


First, the teachers should give less homework. Some teachers give the normal amount of homework, but if all of the teachers give you the normal amount of homework, then the time needed to complete the homework jumps from 30 minutes to 2 hours. In conclusion, teachers should try to talk to each other about how much homework (in total) they are giving the students (if they don’t already).


Second, students should use their time wisely. Not just go home and play video games until 1:00 in the morning then decide that they should do their homework. I like to do my homework right when I get home so that I’m not all stressed out later. I would also suggest not using all your time up on after school activities. Take after school stuff that you think would not fill up all your time but is also fun so you won’t regret signing up for it.


Having somewhere to write down what homework you have and in what class really can help! I know that this free time problem only increase as you move up in grades, so manage your time wisely!

Anyone who knows me might know that I can’t stay up late talking or moving around, but I could stay up until 12:00 reading a book or something. But even if I do go to sleep early, I still wake up late, and when I do wake up early, the mornings are almost terrible. My brother is an early bird and wakes up way before me. During the night I study, if I have a test the next day, because for some reason I don’t concentrate as well when I study during the day. Once over the weekend I slept in until 12:00 in the afternoon! It was such a surprise to me that when I went upstairs I didn’t believe that it was 12:00 even though my family was telling me that it was.

So tonight I’ve been doing homework since 5:00 PM and now its 8:20 PM. I didn’t even have homework in all subjects, I had to write a story about weather in science, about 20 problems for math (3 pages), this blog post, and study for a test. I didn’t even have time to go to JAM tonight (its a church thing). Not to mention I still have to proof read my science homework. I’m estimating I will finish by 8:40 PM. I know a lot of people have problems with homework, but what about the people who have things to do after school? For me some nights I could have 30 minutes of homework while other nights 3 to 4 hours of homework, and i’m not even taking a language!
