I work as a medical transcriptionist from 7 in the morning until 3 in the afternoon. Then i started going to school at 4 in the afternoon until 9 in the evening. It's quite difficult but i can still manage my time and i believe that if you only have the will doing it,even it's hard surely you can.You just try to enjoy what you are doing.

oh yes. i have been through a similar thing. i have been working along with studying for the past 2 years now. i come back from college and quickly get ready and leave for work. i hardly get time to eat even. but whenever i am at work, and i get even 15 minutes of rest, i either utilise it in the recreation room to play a game or study a little matter of my course. so this way, i get relaxed n feel re-energised during work.

I am a Biology Major and I am in my junior year already. Since I attend a private school with a tuition of over $20,000 I absolutely need to rely on financial aid. However, I used to juggle two part time jobs along with school, but I realized that my grades were slipping, so I quit one of my jobs. In the 17 hours a day that I am awake, I devote about 10 hours to my studies, three or four hours for work, and whatever is left I usually go out and "chill" with my friends. It's tough, but i've kept my grades phenominal, and I am so proud of myself.

I am a 40 year old nursing student. I have 2 part time jobs. One is on call. I am married, have 3 children and a grandchild. Some days all I want to do is cry! I can't get to my studies or don't have time to visit with my granddaughter. I take a deep breath and swallow it, and pray that I can keep up until I am through. It must be working, because I've recently made the National Honor Society. I have 2 months to go!
