    <-NARRATOR:-> Listen to a conversation between two students.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> I don't know about you, but I'm really looking forward to summer break.
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> I can't even think that far ahead...I've got so much to do before the end of the semester.
    I've been feeling pretty stressed out lately.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> Why? What's going on?
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Well, I just have so many assignments...
    I've got three major research papers to do-and they're all due basically at the same two weeks.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> Wow, three. That is a lot...and research papers take a lot of time.
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Right. And between my job and classes...there just aren't enough hours in the day to get them all done.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> Well, is there anything you could cut from your schedule?
    I mean, you're working part-time at an office in town, aren't you?
    Why don't you just reduce your hours there for a least until you get the papers done?
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> I guess I could tell my boss I need to cut back on my hours for a couple of weeks.
    Ah, but, I don't know, I haven't been working there very long.
    I don't want to make a bad impression by asking for time off already.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> What else could you do?
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Well, another option is...I could get an extension on one of the papers.
    I asked one of my professors about it, my history professor,
    and she said it would be OK if I handed the paper in a week late. So
    then I could just concentrate on getting the other two papers done first.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> Oh, well that's great.
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Yeah. Only, she said she'd have to take a few points off the grade for the paper, since it would be know, to be fair to the other students.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> Oh, that's a drag. So what are you gonna do?
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Uh, I don't know yet.


Briefly summarize the problem the speakers are discussing. Then state which of the two solutions from the conversation you would recommend. Explain the reasons for your recommendation.
