Time Issues

Image is from January 2, 1905 and is an example of unclear data.

To be honest, this class is not what I expected it to be. I did not expect to be learning how to code things or doing xml or anything that involved technical skills. While learning the skills is not difficult, it is difficult to find the time it takes to complete the assignments. I try to set aside time to complete pages and to edit the text, however I can never find enough time. For me, this is a huge issue because I am super obsessive about my grades and I am actually concerned about not receiving a good grade in this class. I do not face any technical issues, just time issues. Thus far I have completed the first three pages of everyday , the only issue in the pages that I find is not being able to read the data for financial tables. The data is always written very small and it tends to be smudged and I hate it and it gives me a headache.
