This week in ap lit I learned how difficult teamwork can be sometimes. When doing the what is literature project I found myself having a lot of frustration with my group mates cause our work ethics and time management are very different. I found that I am someone who likes to use my time in class and get as much done in class as possible because I would rather use my time in class then my own time out of class. I learned that other people procrastinate, which don't get me wrong I do my fair share of procrastinating however I tend to procrastinate until the stress is too much and then I end up getting it done either early or on time. I also found it very annoying when I had my part done but I could not move on to the next step due to the fact that my group mates had not been working on doing their part.
Although, this situation really sucked I learned that if you are dedicated to your school work and projects you end up learning a lot more. For example I ended up writing the majority if not all of both of our papers, however I learned a lot more because I was forced to know the material of both in order to be able to write an essay on both topics. Although I wanted to let my partners do some of the work I felt as though I had to do it all because it was not getting worked on even though it was due in two hours. So even though I was awfully frustrated and annoyed with this project I learned to take control and earn my own grade and take control of my own future because i'm not gonna let other people ruin my grade or my learning.
