7 days a week - September 8th 2014, 02:34 PM

Kinda need advice on some stuff because I'm worried about how I'm going to cope. It seems like I'm going to have to be at uni for 5 days a week, and I just got a job which means i'll be working all day for both saturday and sunday. I'm honestly worried I wont cope, because I don't have any space to do work at home anyway, without having the added pressure of working on my only two free days from uni. The problem is that it took me 8 months to find this job and now it all feels so pointless. I was so excited when I got it and now I feel like it's all for nothing and I don't know what to do. I can't handle 7 day weeks. I will never get a day to myself and I won't get much work done because I share a room with my sister who also has school work to do. I can't work with noise so the living room is a no go because the rest of my family are in there.

Obviously university is my priority, and so the job is the first thing to go should it need to. But I feel shit giving all of that up after 8 damn months of failed job applications. I'm in a state and I'm panicking a little bit. I just really could do with some guidance on what to do here.

Hi James,

I can't imagine being in that situation! That sounds really frustrating!

Since university is your priority, is there any way you can change your hours or shifts in your new job? Perhaps, to fit around your university timetable? Could you perhaps talk to your boss about how you want the job but feel that working on the weekend leaves you with little time for university work?

Also, was there a particular reason that you wanted the job? Sometimes people only want a job for the money. If this case, try finding out if your university offers jobs for students- these fit around your university timetable and pay you as well. If the job was relating to particular work experience you needed, you could talk to your university's careers service to find other suitable work.

Whatever happens, try to be organised with the uni and work balance as well as social life- you don't want to be all burnt out! And try checking out your university's library or a local library to do your work, if you find it difficult to work in the house.

Try not to stress!

Hope things get sorted for you soon!

Can you try to rearrange your schedule at university to pair less intensive classes with other classes? Also, consider staying an extra hour at a library to get work done. Many students did this to get quiet time, especially ones with little children who do not understand the concept of mommy or daddy needs to study now.

In all honesty, you are an adult now so you need to arrange your schedule accordingly. Many people do work and go to school and have very little free time off. It is about prioritizing yourself. Also, how many credit hours are you doing? Are you taking a reasonable amount or are you trying to overload yourself? Are you taking too many "hard" classes?

I'd try to see how both work before quitting one. I would also take the time and effort to find a quiet place to do work. After all, in the real world a busy office with cubicles won't make everyone quit working so you can do your work quietly.

I live in the UK so my course is already set out in modules; I can't not take some or switch them because my course has them set up already. I'm going to try I just feel so overwhelmed, especially since a week before I start I have to set up the shop and I'm doing 12-13 hour shifts every day.

Is there a quiet space at uni that you can do study? Often the library will have rooms or pods where you can work.


Feel free to email/PM/VM/whatever me if you want. I'll answer as soon as I can.
