I've never been a fan of group projects. I know how to be a team player and how to do my job well. If appointed team leader, I strive to do the best for my group and to earn a great grade for our group. If the group consists of my friends, it'll contain a lot of laughing and junk food eating.

After this assignment it made me ponder... "Am I fit to be a manager?" This was my first REAL time dealing with different types of people around my age. I tried the best to lay out our essay strategy to the group, explain why I chose this certain path and distinguish it among the rest of the class, plan out what needed to be done and hope that execution would go well and finish in a timely manner. Everything went awry as I stayed up constantly editing and getting it proofread, basically putting a lot of effort to make sure communication was sound and getting to the right people. Apparently no one cared. No one responded to anything I did, except for one guy for which I was grateful. But it just seemed like they depended on me to pull up the slack and ride on my back for the f!cking grade. After the ordeal I realized I was not entirely approachable and thought, "I'm not very nice as a manager, in fact, I think I seem a little stand-offish and condescending." But thanks to mysticariadne, if I let one little undergrad class get to me, especially one that did not offer much for me to learn from and where I get unfortunately get stuck with a bunch of apathetic dopes, well then I wouldn't really make it far when I do finally go out into the real world. I did evaluate that I did not do so well in the controlling function of management but I guess I'll just use it as a building block until then.

So now I'm just reflecting on the laziness of 2nd year students. It amazes me that they are still here. I'm not being arrogant and I know people want to have fun and that homework + reading constantly does get to you but there's a limit. Coasting off of hard-working people is not acceptable... but yet it is life and what people in this world do from time to time.

I recently finished a management group project, which I have to say, is the worst turn out for a university-level group project. Eight people for an assignment is ridiculous. Four, yes. Eight, no. Now I'm not getting cocky and saying that just because it's university level that the intelligence of my team mates are below par. Work, especially work in college should be done meticulously and not copied off Wikipedia.com

Hello LJ world!

Hmm.... well it's kind of silly to start an LJ without actually even posting on your own journal. I'm not much of a blogger as I used to be when I was younger. I'm more of a community poster/contributor. I'm a big-time random pairing person... I like to write fan fics since I can't draw to save my life. Not really the best a fan fic writer could be but I'm practicing, and hopefully I'll be better in the future.

I'm an avid Legend of Zelda fan. I can play those games all day. Seriously.

I have a butt-load of new ideas and in progress stories lying in my files so...... something will come up soon...
And yes, I've got Snow's Requiem (final chapter) all planned out. I'm just working out the kinks.... so watch out ^_^

Later days.
