How can I balance work life, school life, and extracurricular clubs?
I want to do everything, yet it seems like there is not enough time to do all things at once. How can I be in clubs while working part time and also going to school ? #college #school
The best way is to prioritise. You will have to give up on something from time to time for instance when you have a big deadline or an exam coming up. I managed my time between studies, volunteering, friends and sports by making timetables to see when I had big projects due and worked backwards to give all my interests some time while still meeting my study deadlines.
Manage your time well, write to-do lists, use Google Calendar!
The transition from high school to college is a huge one, as you are moving into a much less structured life with many more decisions to make that you have never had to make on your own before that will have important consequences.
I have found a few sites that explain this better that I could, and I would like to share them with you. From my experiences, these are truly important things to consider. Best of luck - you can successfully face the challenge and thrive!
