    Sleeping is the best thing about my day, I don't know about you. Besides eating, of course. You should sleep. It's fun. Try it.

    Studies show that teens need at least 9-10 hours of sleep everyday. Now I'm being a bit of a hypocrite when I say this since I only get 7 but you do need sleep. At least get 7 or 8 hours. Since your used to sleeping so little you may think that you can function but you might function better and more efficiently if you get more sleep.

    Yup, I feel the same way. I've adapted to run on 2-4 hours of sleep, partially because it's a waste of time, but also because I can't fall asleep 'til at least one or two anyways.

    Well as long as you don't find yourself falling asleep in class then I don't see a problem with it. Different people need different amounts of sleep. The average amount of sleep most people are supposed to get is 8hours though so don't be surprised if it eventually catches up to you.

    NO NO NO NO NO.

    Chinese and Korean can wait. You're only fourteen, sleep is definitely one of the things that you cannot survive without. It'll catch up to you if you keep doing this.

    You need to sleep to get through the day. If you wouldn't get any sleep, your heart would give out from exhaustion.
