I'm not quite sure which direction to take my degree in, while I am focusing on this specialization, I feel like there is more I could do?
It's exciting to hear that you are focusing on more! Languages can always enhance a resume, but can also involve a large time sink. Instead, it might be useful to learn the language of DATA. A statistics course of the basics will be impressive no matter your field, and even if you hate math, I can reassure you that the focus is on making the computer do the number work and you just interpreting!

I just can't focus on the tasks at hand! I keep getting distracted. How can I stay focused?
While there are multiple methods one that can be tweaked for your needs is the pomodoro method, combined with locking down your browser and possibly phone, for 25 minutes or more, and planning in breaks between work.

I have a research project that involves seeing if fracking in the midwest is leading to an increase in jobs, my instructor told me I should revise this question, but I also don't know how to start searching!
You always need to look if your question is asking for an answer that is the right size for your paper, this could be a multi dozen page document, and so it might be worth narrowing down to location, or maybe the type of job. Government data will be likely a really good source since we are talking about employment rates! a quick google search for this topic typing in your topic and site:gov will start leading you in the right direction.
needs and Hanna will reply soon.
