For the first month of rehearsals, I literally stayed away from every upperclassman. And then, the very last month of rehearsals, one of the older kids starting talking with me. From then on, I became really close friends with every single person in the cast.
Now, I'm really glad that someone took the first step to talk to me. I really regret, however, not getting to know everyone else earlier on. Because of my own unwillingness to make new friends, I missed an opportunity to have great friends.
