It’s my first year at Lincoln and I want to get to know my classmates a little better, but my dance classes take up so much time and I never have any time to have anyone over. I love dance, and I want to join the company I dance for when I get older, but I also want to have friends that are not just outside of school. What should I do?
Dear Busy Dancer,
There are many ways for you to fit what you want to do in to your schedule. If you want to have a social life while still working hard at dance, you need to try to find time to fit it in. Take a look at your schedule, and see if you can find areas that you are spending more time in than you want to be. Cutting back on the amount of time it takes for many activities will open up more time for you to do what you want to. Also, try to find time in school to hang out with your friends and bond with them. Maybe you can hang out with friends on the weekend after dance. Be flexible about the idea of change, and try not to get to stuck into a routine that will make you afraid of change.
