Hi there! I completely understand the stress you're going through. My own child faced a similar challenge during their senior year. Here are some tips that might help you manage your time effectively. First, create a schedule that includes all your commitments, both academic and extracurricular, as well as your college application deadlines. Make sure you allocate sufficient time to each task and stay organized. Second, break down your college applications into smaller tasks. For instance, you could work on your essays for a certain amount of time per week, and then move onto other components like recommendation letters or filling out forms. By doing so, you'll make progress without getting overwhelmed. Third, consider reaching out to your teachers, counselors, or other support systems at your school. They can provide valuable guidance and help you stay on track. Lastly, don't forget to take care of yourself. Make sure you get enough sleep, eat well, and take breaks when needed. Remember that it's a marathon, not a sprint, and maintaining your well-being is essential. Good luck!
