i'm involved in this group project for my pharm class which consists of separate 8-minute powerpoint presentations. yes, it's theoretically a 'group' project, but really i see it as each man/woman for him/herself. i also see it as really, REALLY not a big deal, because a) it's an 8 minute long talk, for god's sake and b) it really doesn't matter what grade i get in my pharmacology class anyway. no one is ever going to care.
i'm not saying i want to blow this thing off -- in fact, i think i was the first person to do a draft of my slides -- but i also don't want to spend hours going over it and i don't really feel like listening to everyone else's presentation more than once. am i mean? also, i'm annoyed because i volunteered to compile everyone's slides and this bratty girl went off about how 'ugly' arial on a white background is.
she wanted a fancy font on a marble background, but too bad for her, i'm the compiler. and i really like arial on white.
i'm not a bitch, really. and i'm not anti-'teamwork.' last year was all about teamwork -- but it was also all about fulfilling your individual role on that team (in my case, the role = inquisitive and enthusiastic bystander / scutmonkey) so that the team could survive. in my experience, work done individually usually comes out better and is more efficient. well, whatever.
