How to balance Penn Foster studies
with work and or family demands
Many people have struggled for years trying to balance their studies, their workloads and living by family demands. Now that I have learnt how to balance my Penn Foster studies, work, and my family this has become very easy for me. I am a 24 years old female that lives at home with my mom, sister and two brothers. Also I don’t have any kids which I think makes it much easier for me to concentrate on my studies. Currently I work at a law firm here in the British Virgin Islands which gets real busy on certain days and on a regular day it’s not that busy.
To help me balance and organize my studies in a more organize form, I bought a daily planner. This daily planner comes in very handy and I would advise anyone to make use of it. With my daily planner it helps me to write down assignments that needs to be handed in at a certain time, also helps me to remember task and meetings at work that needs to meet a certain time frame. Last but not least it helps me to remember my family and friends engagements, birthdays, gathering etc. I love the idea of doing my Penn Foster degree online it allows you to take your time and go at your own pace. Rather than having to attend the school in person. You would have to the opportunity to plan your semester classes with your work schedule. Some work places allow you to leave to and attend your classes while some employees don’t. Sometimes you have to take all your classes at the end of the day when working hours are completed. Having to go straight to school after a hard day of work can be very frustrating. Most of the times you are not focus while you are in the class room. There are times when you are so tired that you don’t even make it to class. So now we have worked from 9:00am to 5:00pm in the morning and classes at the college from 5:30 to 8:30 and still have to go to go home to deal with your family this is where balancing your studies comes in.
