I have seti set to keep 5 days worth of work but when I want to do another project it automatically sets its project for the same 5 days and I'm stuck with tons of work I could never process in a million years. How can I set 5 day for seti and only get 1 work for another project?

You cannot do it that way, you will have to work with the Project Resource settings in the Project preferences. The Connect to and Additional Days of work settings are Global settings, they'll be that way for each project your BOINC is attached to. But by regulating the resource share, you can tell BOINC which project is more important than the other.
Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest that in many ways, you can be considered an alien conspiracy!

If "1 work" means "1 day of work": 5+1 = 6 days total
so you have to:
1) Set total days to 6 here (or/and locally in BOINC Manager if you use local settings):
2) Using the "Resource share" setting of each project spread/divide the days as you wish (5 to 1):
on SETI@home preferences:
set "Resource share" to 500
(on the "another project" site leave (or set) the "Resource share" at 100)
("Resource share" numbers are not %, you can use very big numbers as 1000000
In the above example you will have:
for SETI@home: 500/(500+100) "time units"
for "another project": 100/(500+100) "time units"
But if the computer is attached to more than 2 active projects their "Resource share" numbers add to the total number of "share units":
3) Wait enough time (weeks) for BOINC to be able to respect your "Resource share" settings.
