DEAR ABBY: Me and my friend are struggling with balancing sports and homework at the same time. What could we do to stay organized and get through the week with good grades? BEST FRIENDS
DEAR BEST FRIENDS: It’s wonderful that you and your best friend are into the same hobbies. Use your common interests to help each other. Start encouraging each other to study and work hard. Use your time together to study together. I know it’s not always what you would want to do for fun, but instead of just hanging out, plan a study session! Hold each other accountable- remind each other about upcoming assignments and tests. you can even use the time in a vehicle traveling to different sport events to ask each other review questions. The bible says that where 1 is weak, 2 are stronger. Be the type of best friends that makes the other one better!
