    I hope we fall into line with the first ...?

    We are all have 24 hours a day. Some can manage them/their time; others cannot. I hope we fall into line with the first (group?).


    I want to say that I hope that we can manage our time the same as the first group. I couldn't find the exact expression there. Would you help?

    We all have [just] 24 hours a day. Some manage their time; others do not. I hope we fall in the first group.

    I'm sure you know the underlined part is incorrect, Odessa Dawn.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
