Are There Really 24 Hours in a Day?

Has anyone ever told you that there is 24 hours in a day? Have you ever thought about how much time you actually have? Have you ever explained that there truly isn’t 24 hours in the day?

I have been told by countless teachers all through school that I have enough time in the day to do my work. 24 hours to be exact!
Well the thing is I don’t have 24 hours in a day.

School takes approximately eight hours including my bus ride home.
When I get home it takes me about 30 minutes to use the restroom and have a snack. I need a snack because by the time I get home my lunch from four hours prior has worn of.
After my snack has been vacuumed up I start my homework. My standard homework only takes me about 30 minutes. However every week I have about two to the three quizzes and a test. Studying for all of this can take up to two hours!
On top of all of this, after school activities! Softball takes up two hours on the days I have it.
Don’t forget that I have to eat dinner, shower, and get ready for the next day taking me an average time of a hour and a half.
After all of this I am expected to sleep. Doctors say that a healthy amount of sleep for a thirteen year old is eight hours!

All of this added up is 22 hours and 30 minutes. Leaving me a total of a hour and a half to do whatever it is that said person wants me to do.

There are simply not 24 hours in a day!

    I agree with this point. And in the future it only gets worse. Luckily on weekends you have most of The Whole day to relax and do whatever you want. And three mounths of summer are wide open. In the end it all evens out.
