You're killing me

As I type this, I’m currently stressing out over several assignments. For the past few weeks, I’ve felt overwhelmed with the amount of assignments I’ve had. God have mercy! I’m one person! When I come home, I’m tired and don’t want to do more school work. I want to go to bed. And at this point, since I’m a junior, you best believe the first thing I do when I get home is crawl into bed. How am I expected to get a decent amount of sleep, wake up at 6 am to get to school before 8 (or be counted tardy), stay at school and do more work in class, be assigned more homework, and then try to have a social life with my friends and be an active member in my clubs? This article is due today, and I’m typing it while I’m supposed to be doing a different project. Maybe I’m a little unorganized, lazy and a procrastinator, but I’m also sixteen and trying to enjoy my life. This workload has increased the past week since the quarter is ending Tuesday the 14th. I’ve been assigned a project in three classes, had random work given to me in order to fill in more grades, and taken four tests (two of which I did terribly on; I haven’t had time to study for tests due to all of the homework). I don’t know what it is about the 3rd quarter that makes teachers feel the need to really crack down on us and bring in a truckload of work. We don’t need it. Maybe if they would spread the work out better earlier in the quarter, we wouldn’t all have to feel overwhelmed. Wouldn’t it be nice?
