Dear Damaris: Swamped

Dear Damaris,

I’m overwhelmed with work for college. I keep procrastinating while working on applications and scholarships. On top of stuff for college, I have other responsibilities at home, at work, and I want to have some sort of social life. What do I do?

Sincerely, Swamped

Dear Swamped,

It is hard to juggle everything at once! I suggest investing in a planner that you will use religiously. Map out everything you have to do, and make a to do list. Think about what is most important to you and what has the closest deadline, then complete those tasks first. Reward yourself with a nice dinner, a gift card to your favorite store, or some Whitey’s after completing your daily tasks.

Sincerely, Damaris
