    I'm 18 years - oh 19 now 19 & 4 days to be precise big_smile
    I'm a university student doing my mech enginnering (1st sem). I write on elance and for another client who found out about me through one of my elance clients. There's continuous writing, studying (I maintain a GPA of 9.5 for now and wish to keep it that way). I also find time to do some research and update my hubs. I may not publish many but I keep tweaking my present hubs and I get a good trickle of google traffic - just about 50 a day, that's good for the number I have and none of them are high traffic guys.

    So what should I do? Any tips? I've got my exams from 27th of Dec sad

    Finish your studies first!! Don't neglect them!! You never know when things could change and you could find yourself unable to earn online! Meanwhile use your studies as something to write about - combine the two - publish your assignments if you can make them a little more commercial or link them to other students needs for materials etc..

    What are you studying anyway?

    So many years studying and you are asking what to do? You should go and finish your studies, later you will be happy when all is done, and then you come back here and will be a lot less stressful. Good luck to you.

    Study for your exams and go hub and writing crazy once you're done. You should have a break between your finals and the next semester.

    I JUST finished everything for this semester and next semester starts at the end of January. So until then, I'll be putting up textbooks for sale on ebay, editing old hubs (and other articles on other sites), putting up new ones, and of course keeping with my personal self-learning studies.

    Is that 9.5 a typo or does your school use a different method of grading? Most universities (in the US) use a 4.0 scale as the highest, so a 9.5 would be impossible.

      I'm in India we have a grading up to 10 so that's my average. So that is 95% of the marks..
      Yes, I gave up writing any new hubs - actually  I wanted to write for the weekly topic, may be next time smile
      I get 20 days holidays will try to write atleast 50 hubs then big_smile

        That sounds reasonable.

        Studies always come first, but once they're off, ain't no restrictions.

        Also, I didn't know that about India. That's interesting (and so much simpler). So in my scale that'd be roughly a 3.8, very impressive and definitely not something you'd want destroyed from too much online work.

    When I'm in school, everything else takes a back seat.  Hardly even have time to eat and sleep.  Hubbing and freelancing would be completely out of the question.

    o i hate this word because it seems to oversimplify
    but prioritize...
    choose what MUST absolutely be done that day....
    work from the critical down your list
    make lists
    check off what you do as you do it
    it gives one a great sense of 'o, look how much i have done'
    you will be amazed at how much you actually are getting completed each day

    and....J U S T    B R E A T H E!!!!
