    tenses

    Hello everybody. I've got a question about tenses.
    1) Is it right to use the present perfect continuous in the following sentence?
    "I'm a student at Manchester University. I'm studying Physics. Everyone thinks that students have an easy life but I've been working hard all the time. As well as my studies, I have a part-time job in a pub. (etc...)
    2) In the previous text, if I add "My friends and I are enjoying life in Manchester, but it isn't all fun", can I also say "enjoy"?
    Can you help me?

    That's fine.
