You know what I've hated since I started going to school way back when? And I mean wayyyy back when. Every student cringes when you hear the words 'project' and 'partners'. Not partner, meaning singular. Partners, meaning plural. Yes, I'm talking about group projects.
I hate group projects? You want to know why? It's because I'm the one that always has to do all the work for it. For example, I was doing a group presentation on Queen Elizabeth I. I met up with my group mates, we figured out what we were going to actually present (like, which parts of her life or what we thought needed to be focused on) and I started to find information. A couple of days before hte project is due I sent what I had made of a powerpoint asking what my group mates thought of it so far and if there was anything I needed to add.
I got nothing in response.
So I just continued to work, the day before and the morning of the presentation I sent another e-mail, still nothing. However, the morning of, I was up since 6 AM for a 10:30 AM class finishing it because no one was communicating with me. Come to find out when I get to my class that one of my group mates made their own presentation for another part of the project but never told me about it!!! They had spent that whole time working on their own thing and couldn't take the time to respond to an e-mail?
Bright side is for my Intro to Ancient History class we had to write a 750 word paper (2 pages or so, one sentence on 3 depending on the header) on Oedipus The King. Some people went above and beyond that, doing about 1000+ words for the paper. Today, our professor basically called them out by saying, "I assigned a short paper or about two or three pages and some of you exceeded that...long papers aren't always better than short papers".
It made me smile. Especially since mine was exactly 750 pages or so. Now, I'm not saying that he was saying the other papers were bad, I just think they either over analyzed the topic (Why is it a tragedy/what was the audience supposed to take from it) or couldn't figure out how to get to the point of their paper quicker.
Either way, I'm happy. I looked at a few more job possibilities as well as some for internships so we'll see how those go. Time for the weekend!
Loves anything red. Rock music, playing the guitar, drawing, writing, tattoos, and sports are some of my interests and hobbies. I like to laugh, I like to think I'm funny. I talk a lot...just a warning.
