Decrease the time spending on having fun, but increase the time on study and seek suggestions from those excellent studetns to improve the efficiency. Good luck~
Answered by TB | Jan. 18, 2023 15:06

Best way, keep concentrating on your studies and give it your top priority. No matter the outcome the result will give you opportunity in all fields. If you don't study the opportunity will decrease which will cause you more headache. Even if you do not know what you want to become or do, if the results are there you can decide later when you get the results because you might run into a situation, or experience more life which will dictate what you want to do as a passion. Sometimes passion does not lead to money but satisfaction of work. Sometimes if you go for money the job you do won't make you happy but the end result with money will overcome your happiness. Find the balance.

I am a wood rat. Should I sell our house now or later?
I’m not sure if we’re making the right decision. To sell our property now, and build our forever home - which we have already paid a deposit on the land. Or should I wait to sell until the end of the year? And then we have another property which will title next year - which we’ve already paid deposit for.
Should I be more cautious? Or are we making the right choices as we do want to move out of this property and build our forever home.

If you live in Australia, don't sell and keep. Value of housing will only increase and will never decrease.
Financially if your capable of keeping it and getting another investment properly do it, if not then stay in that house until you can to build your wealth.
