I know, it seemed like an absurd amount when I put it down on paper, but it's about right. But keep in mind this was only for last semester.
During swim season I get about 8 hours of sleep a night. That is 112 hours when I'm awake, and 46 hours are only about 40% of that time.
Since I'm home schooled, I have more time to put to my extra curricular activities Also, 15 hours/week of it is on the computer, which is relatively flexible and easy to do in the evening.
ex - school work generally takes 7:00-1:00, between 1:00-7:00 PM is a couple hours of college homework/ECs, then swim practice 7:00-9:00 and my computer work until 11:00 PM. Which is why I have cut down on some of my activities this semester, and I also thankfully don't have swim team. Last semester was a little rough
EDIT: hpa, I think 46 is the average American work week.
Hmm...I'd say during cross-country or track seasons I do about 3 hours a day of running. I do tutoring which takes up 2-3 hours some days. Student Council planning takes some time. I'm not doing as much right now as I usually do, so I'm guestimating 20ish hours total.
It's probably more like 43ish because some of it is compressed during swim season (10 weeks). Otherwise it's more like 35/week. But I wasn't too surprised when I calculated that number because swim season = no spare seconds. (Therefor spring semester = more sleep semester) :P
Lolcats, I admire your dedication to start @ 7. I'm homeschooled, too, but I start at 8.
Haha, you should have seen how much I overslept during break.
Yet I've read the horror stories on here which make me feel very lucky to get 7-8 hours!! :P
