Unhappy Extremely stressed due to school .. - December 11th 2010, 02:33 AM

Hi, i'm new here and I don't really know where to start.. but this year i started university and i've been so stressed from it. Like I'm not a that great at school to begin with and i had a choice to go away from home or stay at home and go to a school near by and I choice a school near by. And i feel like im missing out on all the fun school things and making friendships that could last a long time. and i feel like all the travelling is really taking a toll on me. I want to move out next year but i dont have the finance to do it either.. and school is really stressing me out i dont know how to deal with the work load ...and i do ask for help when i dont get certain assignments but even recently this week i got an essay back and did really bad but before hand i got help from my proff and thought i did really well... and just very not motivated.. and all this stress is really affecting me a lot and I don't know what to do.. and i'm pretty on top of things i will get things done a bit before it is due and not leave it last minute but i'm still so stressed and I feel like im neglecting all my friends and not hanging out with them because of school and everything is just horrible

Hey there,
firstly welcome to teenhelp I'm sure you'll find everyone friendly and helpful.

Starting uni always causes some problems. The only advice i can really give is to try and time manage better- both your workload but also making sure you leave time for friends/hobbies etc. Maybe make a timetable? Spending time with friends is really important. Try setting aside some time, even just an evening a week or sundays. Just get some quality time and it'll help you relax.

As for missing out on uni fun things. Maybe try being more involved? join a sports team, or some society and just try and get a little more involved

Hope things sort out. Pm if you fancy a chat x

First off, know that you're not alone. I just started university this year as well and I've seen nothing but drops in my grades, haha. It's normal, believe me! Everybody's marks drop - some more than others. University is difficult and you really need to push yourself to do the best you can. If you're doing your absolute best, what more is there to do?

You think YOU'RE missing out? Haha, I've been in my room or at the library for about...six days now. Straight. I'm talking, studying for ~16 hours every day, leaving time for only eating (and I study while I eat) and sleeping. I'm pretty sure I study in my dreams as well, haha. I have finals coming up - two on Monday alone, and it's killing me. Honestly, the life of a university student = no life if you want good grades.

As for the traveling issue, try to get involved around campus. I live in residence so I don't have any related experience but I do know that you can still get involved with your school. I think it's SO important to get involved. I'm already heavily involved and it's making my time here much more enjoyable.

Good luck
