You know how in school when a teacher say form groups and a set of tight knit friends always end up in the same group and there is this one outsider who has to join?
Well guess what. The outsider is me right now.
Now let me explain … The teacher was not going to be at class that day so she gave a student the work for us expecting us to form groups during class. Since we had the class last period, the student took it upon herself to put the class into groups, so that she and the rest of the class could go home early. That is how I ended up in this situation. And to make it worse she did not even tell me about the assignment. She walked right past me and told the other students in the class in the assignment. Only one student was nice enough to give me the work because if not I would not know what the crap was going on. Let me just put it out there that I do not have any problem with the person, like other people in the class.
Back to the group. I also do not have any problem with the people that I am in the group with. They are all really nice, intelligent people. And I am not saying that I am not intelligent. I am in fact intelligent, so much so that I am in the top 5 students of my class. By the way, my class is small. There are only 15 people, which is a good thing. The point is that I have no problem. I just feel like I am bursting their small bubble. At the end of the day, all of us know that we will pull our weight in that group assignment, so there should be no worry.
And to top it all off, the group assignment is a presentation in front of the class. I despise these things with all my heart. However, it does make me ready for the real world so that is a good thing. I just do not know how yet.
