Hi there! I can understand how overwhelming it can be to balance school work and college applications. It's great that you're reaching out for advice. My child went through a similar situation, and here are a few tips that helped them stay organized and manage their time effectively. First, create a schedule or calendar to keep track of important deadlines for both your school work and college applications. This way, you can allocate time for each task and avoid last-minute stress. Second, break down larger tasks into smaller, more manageable ones. This will help you feel a sense of accomplishment as you complete each small task, and it'll make the overall process seem less daunting. Third, try to maintain a consistent study routine and avoid procrastination. Set aside specific time each day for school work and college applications, and make sure to stick to this routine. Finally, don't be afraid to ask for help from your teachers, counselors, or even friends and family if you're struggling to keep up. They can offer guidance and support to help you manage everything. Good luck!
