Over the course of the past two weeks of tracking my sleep and dreaming, a few observations have been observed and a lot of analysis have been made. I have found that I slept an average of eight hours and ten minutes per night, with the minimum of approximately seven hours and a maximum of eleven hours. Within this two-week span I had built up a small amount of daily sleep debt, ranging fifteen to forty-five minutes a night, but I was able to make up the hours on the weekend, or throughout the week, result in no net sleep debt. In order to avoid having a daily sleep debt, I should attempt to go to sleep earlier as well as, try to relax a little before bed. I could also try and “stock up” on sleep during the weekend when I do not have a set …show more content…
The night that I had gone to see my parents I had gotten 11 hours of sleep, compared to the next Saturday, which I had gotten seven hours.

Koster was calling out our dynamics and we were doing them to the best of our typical ability when all of a sudden these two white vans come crashing through the field towards us. The van doors open and a bunch of other K College students pile out, it was very clear to me that they were an “Extreme Terrorist Group”. The other students were holding big assault rifles and demanding that we follow their rules and that we get into their vehicles. Koster had told these students “No” and to leave, the group then became very angry and shot the entirety of the men’s Cross Country team, besides one boy, Corey, who was standing behind me. This “group” then leaves and Koster is looking at us like nothing had even happened and told us to do “10 scorpions and 10 eagles”, we
