Junior spring is one of the toughest seasons for rowers/coxswains.  You need to stay on top of your schoolwork since your grades and test scores are an important part of your college application.  Race performance is also important since this is what will get the attention of the college coaches. While you can take  some time for yourself during this tough season, your social life takes a distance 3rd to school and crew.

Remember that this is not forever-but if you have the goal of doing your best in school and at crew, you cannot have a wild and crazy social life as well.  Think about your goals and understand that you will have to compromise in order to give yourself the best chance at achieving what you want.
