Rant: No Free Time

Natalie Chevalier, Staff Writer

Like everyone else, I love having free time, but during the hectic school year getting a break after a stressful day seems impossible. With six hours of school, three hours of after-school activities, and a heavy-load of homework, having time to watch TV or simply just lounge-around is a rarity for me. Even without free time, I still don’t seem to get enough sleep, leaving me just more tired and stressed out the next day. For a lot of us it’s the same strict schedule: school, activity, homework, and then sleep. We have hardly any time to just relax and find our sanity again. Can’t a kid get a break?
