Is there a way you could speak with someone in charge of the program and tell them what's going on? I'm sureI'm really getting discouraged by this program and I feel like dropping out.
No matter how I manage my time, I always end up staying up super late and this amount of sleep deprivation is starting to affect my mental and physical health. It is now 5am and I haven't gotten a wink of sleep. I've been up for almost 24 hours straight and will have to do at least another 12 - 16 hours because I have so many assignments to complete.
Maybe if I had no pets and no life outside of school, I could somewhat manage but that is not the case obviously.
Why does school have to be set up this way? Why is lack of sleep glorified in post secondary education so much. The teachers joke about it like it's a normal and healthy thing. Being so sleep deprived that your cognitive function starts to stagger and you almost get hit by a car you swore wasn't there a second ago is neither normal or healthy.
I'm really asking myself if all this stress is really worth it in the long run. Yeah, I'll graduate in 4 years but my health will suffer and I'm not even guaranteed a job. Especially being a female of colour. It just feels like all odds are against me.
they would work with you.
