Dear Spartan,

My sleep schedule has been super wonky for the past few weeks.  After school, I’ll scroll through Instagram and watch YouTube for about an hour, then I’ll feel exhausted and take a nap.  Usually I’ll only wake up in time for dinner.  At that point, I’ve already lost 4 hours of my day!  After eating, I do my school work, but I find that I get even more distracted by texts from friends at night.  I usually end up going to sleep at 2 AM and feeling super tired the next day.  I do get the recommended 8 hours of sleep a day (mostly due to the naps…), but I don’t like staying up so late.  How can I fix this problem and stop procrastinating my work until late at night?
