Shameful to sleep?: I am not sure if I understand this situation. You definitely need to sleep at least 8 hours a night, or you won't be able to learn anything whatsoever. So that is a starting point. You are 16 years old. The optimal amount of coffee for you is none. You can pull the all-nighters when you go to college. A cup in the morning is ok. Time management is key.
