    I am having a crazy time

    Hello,

    I would really appreciate it if somebody could clear up the meaning of "crazy time" for me.

    Judging from the context in which it was spoken, it meant "hard or difficult time".

    I wanted to confirm it from a teacher.
    If you were to define such crazy time, which word would you choose.

    Thank you all for your time and consideration.

    It would depend entirely on context. On its own, "a crazy time" doesn't have a specific meaning.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: I am having a crazy time

    A: I am having a crazy time.
    B: It is always a crazy time with you.

    Here, A is working at 2 jobs and couldn't balance them. She said "crazy time" in an explanation to her boss for not showing up in time who was giving her hard time for it.

    Re: I am having a crazy time

    In that context, I would take it to mean that person A has a lot to do, has a lot going on, is very busy, lots of stuff is happening so everything is a bit "crazy". The dialogue alone wouldn't tell us anything though. The only reason I have been able to give a definition of it is because you went on to give the context (two jobs that she can't balance).
