Day 1 – Sleep

Level 4

Day 1 – Sleep

  • 맛집영어 영어수강 영어교재 이미지


  • I am about to enter high school. There is only a week left in summer vacation and then I am officially a high schooler. I have two sisters who are already in high school, and they are so cool. They have so many friends, are tall and pretty. They are also so smart. I am worried I will look like a baby when I go to school.

    I have been worried about it for a whole month now. I have been having trouble falling asleep. My mom says I have insomnia. I toss and turn all night and just can’t seem to drift off to sleep. My mom gives me warm milk to help, but it just makes me have to use the bathroom. I finally am able to fall asleep around 2 in the morning. But this causes me to sleep in and miss breakfast. So, I get more worried about not being able to wake up in time for the school bus and being late on my first day of school.

    I have bags under my eyes from the lack of sleep and my busy schedule. I have academy lessons every day that don’t end till late at night and then the homework takes forever to finish. The topics we are learning these days are getting more advanced and I am having trouble comprehending what the lessons are about. So, I need to stay up later and research more examples and explanations of the topics till I am able to understand. I wonder if my regular schoolwork is going to be this hard as well. Will I be able to survive the academic level of a high schooler?
