How-To: "Kill" yourself by not getting enough sleep...

I'm just wondering if anyone else in high school (specifically junior year) is frequently pulling all nighters to get their work done, and essentially "dying" from the process. I am in serious sleep deprivation now, and I'm pretty sure that my eyes are going to implode....

Recently, I've been getting anywhere from 3-5 hours of sleep per night. (Excluding the 3-4 all-nighters I pulled). I really think there's been a decline in my performance, and today is the day that I'm going to get back on track. Unfortunately, I have three tests tomorrow, and I need to study. In math, there'll actually be a few questions dealing with chapters we haven't gone over yet. :(

Wow, your math teacher is mean! I agree though, sleep is a serious issue that schools should take care of. Set a maximum work load, or decrease the day length.
You have to remember that I'm in the top classes, so it's an entirely different situation for 95% of the students, really. I know a couple of people who don't have any homework at all more than one day a week.

It doesn't help that I'm in tons of clubs, intramurals, etc. Nor that I usually don't get home until 8 or so.

By the way, stop posting your comments -16 minutes ago! :P Do you think changing my system time would fix this? (I'm fairly sure that my time is the correct one, as I sync it obsessively with the atomic clock).
i never have homework and im in grade 9
I'm a freshman, too. Point being?

I didn't have much HW as a freshman, even though I was in all the advanced courses. Just wait until Junior year, if you make it... From how it sounds like it's going, I think you might be dead by then.... Ledzeppie, don't be surprised if you aren't sleeping for days Junior year... especially if you're in all APs
I'm going to take the advice of royalestel and go to bed now. :P (10:47 over here).

You guys are sissies! You've gotta pull the all nighter! Haha, just playin'
i'm fine with all-nighters, but i usually start to get drowsy at about 4 in teh morning. Once the sun's up, tho, i'm fine
