“It is difficult for a student to maintain a proper balance between thedifferent roles, the individual plays such as a friend, a student, aprofessional, a classmate and a responsible child.”If you’re interested in ‘balancing’ work and pleasure, stoptrying to balance them. Instead make your work more pleasurable.
