no one is as lucky as us

Does anyone else hate group projects as much as I do?

For some reason, my teacher decided that since there are only 5 people in our methods class, that we should create a lesson plan as a group.

Well, that part was easy, I mean, way easier than everyone having to come up with one from scratch.

Except now we have to teach it.........

Only three of us, though, since there are only 3 teachers willing to let us come.

Obviously I was one of the ones chosen, or I wouldn't be freaking out right now.

Since we did sections of the lesson plan on our own, not everyone has everything. Do you see where I am going with this?
The only thing I'm missing.......the most crucial item for the teaching part, is the PowerPoint.
I want to go over and over it in my head and out loud in preparation for tomorrow....BUT
the girl who did the powerpoint said she won't be able to send it out until late tonight.

We [me & one of the other girls] are freaking out. We feel totally unprepared. And our teacher is going to be sitting in MY classroom, watching ME teach, ME interact with the students, ME discipline. The other two girls will be observed by peers.

So you can see why I'm freaking out, right?

Not to mention the fact that ESPN is at my campus right now, getting ready to film a conference game...the only game I really wanted to go to. And now I can't.
Because I feel like it will cause me to fail tomorrow.

*sigh* I need a soda.

I also hate group work. You just have to depend on others a little too much, and they always seem to fall short just when the grade depends on it. You just need to relax and keep prepping :) Good luck - you're going to do wonderfully and completely impress your teach :)

i was talking to my uncle tonight and he was like "i figured you would be in Troy tonight" and I told him how sadly most of the people I know have moved on from that city but the one I know who is there isn't really into football.

And then you go and post this. Way to switch it up on me

Aww, this sounds tough. It's really hard when you have to depend on other people for something and they keep you hanging around. I'm sure you'll do great though, just stay calm and remember that its a learning experience. :)
