An unfortunate side effect of the International Baccalaureate program. In order to finish the requisite amounts of work, sleep is often neglected. This produces symptoms including, but not limited to: red eyes, yawning, falling asleep in class, excessive bragging about how hard you worked, lack of motivation, napping in unorthodox places (hard floors, etc.), and occasionally in a highly intellectual mental state (allowing many in-depth observations and an ability to understand complex concepts). Sleep deprivation is also a common tool for bragging, with the more sleep deprived participant being declared the victor.
Student 1: I've got some hardcore sleep deprivation. I had to do three hours of calculus homework, finish an English essay, and I have a chemistry test next period.
Student 2: That's nothing. I had to finish my history IA, TOK essay, biology worksheets, and the math homework. I didn't get to bed until 3:30.
