School time changes have advantages
I put in many late nights of studying after band practice, church and other extracurricular activities. There was so much to do that many nights I barely had time to eat dinner before holing myself up in my room to read textbooks, write papers or study for the next exam.
I went to school at 8:30 a.m. and finished class at about 3:30 p.m. Most days I had some sort of extracurricular or church activity to fill at least a couple more hours of my day.
