Rant. Fucking rant.

Alright. Being in high school sucks. Everyone knows it. For a teenager, high school is probably, as of the moment, the period in which work is just shit on you like you don’t have friends. And also they expect you to balance a social life or else face the consequences.

With high school comes two things.
A) Puberty. Kids are no longer kids and sleeping schedules get thrown all out of whack. (It is scientifically proven that teenagers tend to need more sleep but chemical impulses in the brain cause later hours of sleep to be more common, naturally.)
B) Schoolwork. Much more schoolwork. And for advanced students such as I, teachers assume that the only class you take is theirs and that you have enough time to juggle 7 projects, a social life, a family life, healthy habits, and all the aforementioned homework.

What I am getting at here is that I don’t get enough sleep. I admit it. But my parents don’t seem to understand why I don’t sleep enough.

Those two blame it on technology. They blame every little shit on technology. And I can’t fucking stand it. I have the right mind to control my use of swearing on the internet, but they just push me over the edge on this topic. They show their ignorance by blaming technology for my lack of sleep. Don’t they understand that I have to deal with incredibly unfair amounts of schoolwork and I still have to deal with their shit?

I was recently “blessed” with a laptop. I say blessed because my parents treat that shit as if it’s a gift from God. Whom I have mentioned I don’t truly believe in. My parents saw that I use my laptop a lot. My main usage of this laptop? This blog and for Microsoft Office/Google Drive/Photo editing. ALSO FUCKING KNOWN AS WORK. I USE THE LAPTOP FOR NOTHING BUT WORK. My parents don’t understand that it is not the cause for my poor sleeping habits.

Hell, if anything is to blame for my not getting to school on time, it is my parents and a lack of technology.

They made me. Me, the boy going through a period of chemical imbalances that throw off my sleeping schedule.
Also not turning on the alarms on my phone to wake me up.

Because I haven’t been able to stay awake, what they’ve done is take away my laptop every evening. They pester me for it when I’m trying to fucking work. Just burst into my fucking room which you do anyway and take it. Hell, take my phone too. While you’re on the topic of restricting me of tech, take away my lamp and slutshame the shit out of Tesla and Edison for creating the bulb that would keep me awake for fucking ages.

Shit.
