I'm in Oakland Community College, and the classes are waayyy to hard. I don't know how people can handle the stress. PLEASE HELP ME



I totally feel you. I feel like it's been helpful for me to just take everything a day at a time. I get way too overwhelmed when I think weeks out. I just set some daily goals and if I can do some of those and survive then I consider it a successful day haha good luck!!

I've found it best to write down everything I need done for the week with the deadline next to it. Have a rough estimate on completion time. Now, order everything based on due date and time needed to finish. Also consider, if you're crunched on time, which ones you can just not do. If an assignment is worth merely 2%, just leave it for last. Getting a diploma/degree sometimes isn't about the work, but moreso managing stress and workload.

You can do this :)

If you can, perhaps try finding a tutor that can help you out with some of the classes. Sometimes, it can help to have someone else who is not a teacher but rather a student who has already taken the class.

Ahh I'm sorry I don't have much advice. Try meditation maybe? Works wonders for some. Hope it gets better
