It's okay to feel frustrated and confused due to all that stress because if you were completely relaxed, you wouldn't consider your studies and projects as significant. However, sometimes, the frustration can make you feel like you want to give up... that you simply can't finish it in time. Don't let that happen because not giving up is hard... though giving up is harder. Instead, use all that stress and convert it into energy for you to focus on your studies plus your side projects :)

Sorry to hear that you are sad and frustrated but everybody goes thru these things once in a while. All you have to remember is to make sure to write down everything that you need to do and manage your time. Time management is what we all need, so do not fret and I myself is in the same situation where in I have so many things to do and would like to accomplish everything as soon as possible.

Hi sublime: I agree with you and i also want to add that sometimes in our life we just see the problems we have but i think there is always a solution to our problems but in a moment it's possible that we can not see anything to do. We have to relax and think about this clearly to find what to do. I love to manage my time according to what i have to do on my day and it really works for me, it puts everything in order. Thanks for your answer. Hope you are having a nice day. Merry Christmas/ Happy Holidays. Take Care. -Alvaro.

i know it is busy to be a student. i usually burn mid night oil to finish my project. Moreover, i will refer to my friends or lecturer for any uncertain of the project. my friends help me a lot. therefore, i am able to concentrate on my study after finish my assignments. my last word is work hard and do not give up. it is a responsible for student to work hard.

I know where you are coming and how you feel but I think that you will have to make time for both venture since both are equally important .Consequently I think you should make a timetable in which you designate 40 percent of the time to the studies and 60 percent to the studies .That way you will get fo finish the project quickly without neglecting your studies adn then be able to focus on your studies

Hi, I would think of outsourcing. As you mentioned, the project needs to be done soon and working, and you need to study. It's quite hard to be doing it all alone. Do you have friends who could help out in the project so you can have ample time for your studies?

Hi smiley: It's really stressing and the only thing i can tell you is that I live the same life you are living right now... too much stress here because of my university obligations and that i have to work at the same time until January 17th. It's hard but I would advice you to make a list of priorities and start with it. Thanks for sharing with us your feelings. Good luck with that. Hope you are having a nice day. Merry Christmas/ Happy Holidays. Take Care. -Alvaro.

Plan the remaining days to be productive, do things one day at a time and not panic and get pressured...just relax! step by step you never notice that you're already done as long as you do it one at a time. Godbless, you can do it!

hi! i understand what you feel. I'd been like you a year ago. Don't be confused in everything. Just relax do the first thing you have to finish first then follow the others.. Or write your priorities so wont forget the things you need to do everyday. It's really effective ..Try it!

To begin with, I should say that, wen one feels... "I am confused",,,"I am confused"... then its obvious that even if he/she is not actually confused, he/she will be, coz its a scientifically proven fact. Rather than that, just feel that you can do it, and try to makeup your own time table for the next few days wisely and make sure that you stick with it... I promise you that you will succeed GOOD LUCK!!!

Hi, Smiley! I was once a student and a full time employee. It wasn't easy especially when there were projects to complete and we were required to do full research. As you must at least spend a few hours on your study, I guess it's important to know when is the best time that your brain works better so, it will be much easier for you to manage your time. I also think that by doing a checklist always help. You will know where to begin and which one needs more attention first. Just take time to smell the flowers to de-stress yourself. Good luck!

first u need to organize your thought process,by putting the more important thing upfront first and get it out of the way,then move on to second important and so on and so on,so it starts with the mind organizing
