Sheeteah Blair’s bleary, watery eyes focused on the accounting homework in front of her at a high-top table at Nashville State Community College.
She’s hunched over the book at about 7:30 a.m. in September. She’s been awake since before 4 a.m.
Sleep comes when Blair can manage it. A quick nap on the couch after a long day at work and school, for instance.
Sunday through Thursday are the worst days during the start of Nashville State’s fall semester.
