Yes, it's true, school is damaging to your health. It affects us in many ways, some of them positive, but most of them being negative and nasty.
Firstly, your physical state. You have to wake up at unspeakable times that you never would dream of waking up at - like NINE! After several weeks of this rigorous sleeping schedule you become tired, worn out, and begin to function at unreasonably low mental levels. You constantly are fueling yourself with any food that you can come upon to make up for the power you are missing from sleep. You drag yourself through life and avoid any situation that might suck up some of your dwindling energy. It is now that the Psychological damage becomes apparant. You are so tired that your brain is not working at it's usual speed, and this will first become noticable as you try to take notes in class or do homework. A series of odd things will start happening such as: You think you have written the numbers "432" and look back later to see you have written a random word that has no meaning; You try to respond to simple questions such as "What is your name?" and "Where do you live?" and find yourself struggling to remember. It is around this time that you will start to feel yourself nearing an emotional breakdown. Kindly inqueries such as "How are you?" and "How was class?" turn into ugly taunts in your blurred mentality and you start to lash out at loved ones.
It is at this point that you promise yourself that you are going to start going to bed early, finishing homework when you're supposed to, and try to regain some of your previous sanity. However, you soon realize that no matter what you do, this feat is not entirely possible. Why? Because school is evil. That's all there is to it.
