Just imagine being a high school student trying to pull nothing but As and Bs and having to go to work as well.

Can you say stressful?

Some students work just for their own money in their pockets, but some actually work because they have to pay bills. It most certainly gets overwhelming and tiring carrying two very important responsibilities on your back.

So how can you make this less stressful on yourself?

  1. Organization

You can start off by making sure you are well organized with all your work and assignments. Luckily you have help. It is called your Chromebook.  You can keep up with all your assignments, email your teachers, and do research if needed. You don’t have to worry about turning in papers or being physically there.

  1. Your Support System

You can’t juggle life on your own, let alone school and work. You need people or just someone who is going to support you and motivate you to keep pushing.

“I think It’s important to have someone who will keep you on your toes and remind you your education is first,” senior Diana Moreno said.

  1. Balance

Make sure you have balance between the two. For example, on your days off, you can catch up on your school work. Or, on your break, you can take at least 30 minutes to finish any missing assignments.

“It is hard but what I do is I try to balance. Whenever I have a day off I catch up on all my work. It may be late but I do my best,” Diana said.
