Juggling school, work, and time for your friends can be very difficult but luckily I have thought of some ways to make it a bit easier. So many people stress so much because of this task but they don't know it can be very simple. Ever since I started working I got really behind in school I would be stressing every night because I worked late nights and got so much home work. When my boss would ask me to stay late I would say yes because I didn't know hot to say no and I was scared to get fired. I also never had time for my friends. I knew I had to figure out a way to make time for everything and not stress because of it. So I thought of some ways to stay on top of my school work and still have time for my friends and so I can keep my job.

The number one thing is to be organized. Keep your school materials organized and in one place. Mark upcoming deadlines on your calendar and start school projects early to allow sufficient time to complete them in case other things come up in the meantime. Go through folders and get rid of papers I no longer need. Having all of those extra papers that you got back a month ago in your folder will make it heavy. It may bend and tear. But worst of all, you won't be able to find papers when you need them, I would hate when this would happened to me. Get any supplies that you may need and don't have. Being prepared is important. Even if that certain item wasn't on the supply list, you should get it if you really feel you need it, such as a portable pencil sharpener. I bought a planner that I thought I wasn't going to need now I put everything in it from my school work to when I have time to go out with my friends, it has helped me so much.

Another thing is to create a flexible schedule. Some parts of your schedule are going to be inflexible, such as class times and work days. I usually would work night on weekdays and days on weekends, so on weekdays I couldn't do homework and on weekends I wanted to go with my friends. Fit homework and studying in when you're not in class or not at work. Build a routine that you can stick to, but are able to adjust if other important things come up. As a working student, I have to be ready to adapt to new assignments, unexpected errands, and sudden work crises that need to be addressed immediately. I try to make enough studying time in my schedule so that if something comes up, I can shift it into another slot during the week. I used to procrastinate a lot I always wanted to go out
