Life is pulling Buffy in all directions and it never ends; every day is the same. Up in the morning and off to school, training with Giles during free periods and at the end of the school day, then home and a mad rush to get homework done and have something to eat before heading out on patrol. If she’s lucky she might be able to spare enough time to stop by The Bronze and hang out with her friends for a bit, but she’s just as likely to be too busy battling vampires or demons to put in an appearance.
She trails home in the early hours, long after her mom thinks she’s in bed asleep, sneaks in the window and falls into bed for a few short hours’ rest, only to get up the next day and do it all again. This is what her life has become, round and around, like she’s trapped on a carousel that never stops.
The weekends are no better; there’s still homework to do, more training, and vamps work seven days a week so she has to do the same. Who does she need to talk to about getting a day off?
