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!
