Cynthia Chen Posted over 1 year ago Reforming the education system to incorporate new findings about children Ahh, I should have looked more into Gardner's theory to realize how old it is! It's new to me as I just learned about it in class ;). With the sleep issue I think it may also have to do with my major, graphic design. It's a lot of practical work that has to be perfected, taking a lot of time. And to stand out from the many other graphic design students trying to get jobs requires me to put in more time as opposed to those who would sleep more or use time for non-school activities in order to develop a better portfolio. I definitely try to make my time as productive as possible, don't worry! I am also, sometimes regrettably, one of those perfectionist students. Thank you all for your responses, it's really interesting to hear other opinions about ideas swirling in my head. I actually came here on a school assignment, but will be frequenting these forums more as there is some fascinating things being discussed.
