"High school, it seems, has changed. It has become competitive. Young men and women — 13 to 18 years old — must work more or less tirelessly to ensure their spot at a college deemed worthy to them and their families. So rather than living their adolescent lives — lives brimming with desires and vitality, with vim, vigor, and brewing lust — these kids are working at old age homes, cramming for tests, popping Adderall just to make the literal and proverbial grade. And for what? So they can go to a school that puts them in debt for the rest of their lives. School has become a great vehicle of capitalism: it quashes the revolution implicit in adolescence while simultaneously fomenting perpetual indebtedness."

somnesia - n. The act of forgetting or refusing to sleep. The feeling of dread upon realising how late it is and knowing that you’ll be tired all day tomorrow, even if you go to bed right this instant. The weary eyes and cloudy thoughts that come with sleep deprivation.
