    Overwhelmed but Managing

I seem to have a hold on everything and plan to get it all done this coming week. I am just feeling a little overwhelmed just because the semester is half over and I know a lot of things are coming upI hope everyone is...

    School

    2
    I'm a little hopeless about school. I know there are bigger things going on in the world and with people but I don't feel like I'm anything because I'm a failure with school. It makes me feel bad about myself and not confidant in my future or in myself at all. I do like myself and I do love myself but when I think about school I feel so depressed and like such a loser and the people around me...

    Caught Up but Still Behind

    2
    After taking a small break from a few classes last week, I am feeling a lot better. I feel caught up on all of my assignments and should be getting ahead on the ones i have coming up, but I have not. So now I am feeling like I am about to have 100 assignments coming at me. Luckily I have a few days off work, so I feel like I am going to have some time to get ahead, it's just a matter of actually...

    As far as the students are concerned, writing every assignment matters and they need to make their every assignment top quality to get better results. Writing is a very common activity for the learners of all levels. You have to deal with writing from school, college and university levels. It’s a challenge but can present good knowledge to students. Students can grow through their writing...

I am sorry that everyone seems to be struggling with university, especially graduating, I know the feeling, I am a senior, and still don't know if it will amount to anything in the end.

I really need to focus now. I just feel like 500 things are being thrown at me, but I need to take a deep breathe, take a step back, and remind myself that I can do this! Just trying to stay positive and...

    Stressed is an Understatement

    3
    I am in my final year of my undergrad, and I cannot wait to be done. However, I just signed up to take the LSAT (Law Scholl Acceptance Test) in December. I feel like I have no time to study for it, but I have to get a good score or I feel like I will let my mom down. I have always wanted to go to law school, so this is something I want to do, but its hard juggling all of my classes, work, and...

    Time Management

    3
    I am currently a sophomore in college, and one of my biggest struggles is time management. I often find myself waiting until the last moment to complete assignments and study for tests, which I think is why my grades are not great. I struggle to balance my time between my schoolwork (classes and intense homework load), my job, going to the gym, having time to exercise, and have a social life....

    Fighting mental illness and the school

    0
    It's been a long two years fighting a pretty dibilitating mental illness called schizophrenia. During that time i failed quite a few of my college courses. Things went from bad to worse when my grandmother passed away in the middle of the semester. I was overwhelmed and had no idea what disability services was at school. Nobody told me about it until after i had two bad semesters in a row. Anyway...
