Creating friendships is one of the most important things in life, especially when you are going to be surrounded by them for a long time. Being on a team is like having a big friend group; however, sometimes you may not get along with all of them. The choice is yours when it comes to finding lifelong friends, but once you have found those friends you’ll be set for life.
