Hey there! It's completely normal to feel overwhelmed when thinking about balancing schoolwork and college applications. I've been through this process with my own child, and I can share a few tips that worked for us. First, create a schedule to manage your time effectively. Dedicate specific hours to your schoolwork and college applications, and stick to this schedule as much as possible. This will help you stay organized and prevent procrastination. Second, break down larger tasks into smaller, manageable chunks. For example, instead of trying to finish an entire college essay in one sitting, focus on completing a certain number of paragraphs or words per day. Third, prioritize your tasks based on deadlines and importance. This will ensure that you're addressing the most urgent tasks first and not getting bogged down in less critical ones. Finally, don't forget to take breaks and give yourself some downtime. It's important to maintain a healthy balance between work and relaxation to avoid burnout. Remember, you're not alone in this journey, and many people have successfully navigated through this process. Stay positive and reach out to your support system if you need help or encouragement. Best of luck to you!
