Hi Sarah, it’s definitely a challenge to juggle all three.

You want to prioritize what is important to you at this very time. You certainly want to focus on school and make sure you get good grades. When it comes to work- if you can do part time that’s one of the option because you do want to have substantial time to do your college assignments.

What I did- I took early bird and late night classes- and I worked near by college during the day. Of course- I did have a part time job and left time during the week and the weekend to study.

When it comes to your personal life- which is also important and you want to take break to care for yourself and enjoy your life- remember it’s about adjusting your habits. Maybe going out once a week on a day when you don’t have a lot of school and work and doing something where you don’t stay up all night. Like a movie night or a show or just getting together with friends and dining in/out.

College life is a great new beginning and you certainly want to make the best of your time but you also don’t want to get drained and overwhelmed with everything-so pausing, taking a break during the day-getting involved in some sport activities where you have time to distress and rejuvenate your energy.

So, just keep in mind- your friends will be there, school is what you don’t want to lack on, work is important but find something where it’s close by and you don’t spend a lot of time traveling. So, time management -write it all down and see how much time you have for all of your daily activities and don’t forget to take care of yourself daily-even if it means you have 30 minutes to Knapp or sit at your favorite coffee shop and read a book.

Good luck

Sergei’s Answer

You don't. You have to make tough decisions. I'll give you some laughably tragic personal tails. I had to break up with a couple of my girlfriends while in college, and one I really liked and she is now getting married. I went out a total of 5 or less times throughout college to get through engineering school, all of which I lost money or was scammed. I worked on robotics / invention projects in my spare time, with the little money I did have, which caught on fire and I had to re-buy the parts, but I had to in order to gain experience. We have to know our limits but it's good to push them to see what they are. School, and life in general, is not about learning it's about discipline, stress and time management and what you really value at the end of the day; period. Sounds like rent and school are the most important right now. But, still go out by setting limits and alarms, make connections (which are most important) and apply your skills outside of you school(job or a hobby) and you will be successful. Grades are important but just get what you can and move on. Then, when you have a steady job, you can change your priorities to work and your social life. Life is about knowing which decisions to make, how quickly, and when. Hope that helps.

You can.

But first, you have to have the commitment and the desire to work, go to school, and enjoy life. Prioritize what's important and set goals for yourself.
