College Witchery: Home Stretch

I only have three more school days (today and next week) until I’m free. I’m feeling both dread and relief over this.

Have I mentioned how much I hate group projects? Because I do. I really, really do. So far, I’m the only person who’s worked on our magazine project since we left class on Tuesday. It’s due tonight by 11:59pm. I don’t know how (or if) the other people in my group are going to add their essays to it, because it takes a long time to convert an essay into a magazine article. I think it took me about an hour and a half for each of mine. That’s three solid hours of work.

People always say, “Oh, I can sit down and knock out three hours of work!” until they actually have to. I don’t think people realize how draining and monotonous it is to work on the same project for a solid three-hour chunk of time.

But, whatever. I got my shit done. At 11:45 I’m downloading the damn thing and submitting it, whether they have their shit together or not.

At least it’s not worth quite as many points as I thought. It’s only 75 points instead of 100. Even if we (I) bomb it, I can still manage a C, I think.

But, at this point, even if I fail, I think I’ll be okay. I’ll just be happy the whole ordeal is over. I can always retake the class next fall, if I need to. I might even take it with the same teacher, since I’d know what to expect… (insert maniacal laughter here) or maybe not.

I’m almost free. So close I can taste it.

    • Right?! Although, I talked to my teacher and THANKFULLY she was like, “No, you’ll get graded on your own work. The idea is for you to work together as a unit, but I also understand that you can’t force someone to do their work, so you’re only responsible for your own stuff.” HALLELUJAH because I’m still the only person with both “articles” in the magazine. -_-

    • Yea, I’ve definitely done some tweaking to it on my own, but for the most part I’m just like, “Hey, I got my shit done.” I can’t exactly write their essays for them. But, ugh, I am SO looking forward to break.
