stressed.jpg

I'm a 22 years old chemical engineering freshmen, just started college 2 months ago and since I'll be paying for tuition myself I decided to work part-time to save money for next semester tuition.
I started working at a call-center just 3 weeks ago. The job's easy, the pay's good, and the company adjusts my work schedule to my school schedule so that I work only 25 hours a week.
Even so I'm having a hard time adjusting because my homework load is always huge and I barely manage to finish it before deadlines. I've been stressed and tired as fuck for the past 3 weeks and I'm seriously thinking of quitting the job so I can focus on college, but if I quit I won't have any money for next semester tuition.

What do you think I should do? Should I quit the job or stay like this knowing I'm risking failing at least a subject? Do you think there's an easier way for a student to earn decently and pay school?
Please help me, I'm desperate and I can't ask anyone from my family for help or support.

would a summer job be able to cover tuition? do you have student loan options? have you tried looking for say, weekend jobs only? one that averages 16 hours a weekend like being a server, but will result in enough tips to compensate?

exhaust al lyour options before you just quit cuz quitting doesnt solve the problem

i hate to say it but schooling sucks these days - it is more of a system to make money rather than give people anything that will help them - it has become more of a hinderage than a help
like you - i couldn't afford college - so i started working full time
first with shit jobs in a gov office - stayed and did everything i was told - joined boards - joined groups lots of volunteering
ten years later i have a decent job in an employment office and now i have money to pay for an education which is what i am doing

Working as waiter was one of my first options actually.
Unfortunately most of the restaurants I asked for job have fixed schedules that force you to work 6 days a week. Call centers are of the most flexible companies in here and that's why I decided on working there, but stll I'm choking with college.

I think it depends on the country. In first world countries you'd probably have a bigger chance of nicely-paid job without having a degree.
In my country you're destined to work as waiter or cook with a shitty salary the rest of your life if you don't go to college.

How is the call center? I heard a guy in my class say he's a manager for one and they get paid $10/h. I could live with that.
I literally have no money and I'm tired of the 3 hour commute to uni

TALK TO YOUR COUNSELORS!
Check if your school has any positions available right now. If not, you can go and ask your counselor or even a professor if they know about a position, make it clear you want a work study, not a fucking free slave work internship.
