all day my eyes were crossed
The only class I CAN’T STAND is Created Projects. Our assignment? A 5 minute or less interpretation (skit, movement piece, whatever) of the following phrase: Journey of Excellence
I’m the oldest one in my class (26) the next is 24 and 23 and the rest are 18 and 19 and a couple of 20 year olds. A total of 27 people in my “class” and we are broken into groups. All. . did you read that?.. . ALL that’s A. . L…L… the ideas we as a group of 9 can apparently come up with are the kind you came up with in Jr. High Drama class or High School when you only had one hour to put something together than perform it. it’s old, its juvenile and if their idea isn’t picked they pout. They WERE POUTING FOR THE PAST 3 DAYS. no one can agree and if you go with majority rules then that ONE person has to make it MISERABLE FOR EVERYONE ELSE by pouting and constantly saying what they DON’T like about whatever and then sitting down and sulking and separating themselves from the group. THIS DOES NOT HELP.
As a group, compromises must be made. Sacrificing an excellent idea for an idea that will move the group forward one positive step is something you’re gonna have to deal with in “real life” and they would KNOW THIS IF THEY WEREN’T 12. . . (deep breaths)They would know this if they came to “college” with open minds, a little more “life” experience and if they left their yearbooks “senior best” page on the shelf in their room. I can look at some of these people and just KNOW “best personality” “friendliest senior” “prettiest girl” “class clown”. What I have to do is look at them and remember I am somewhere different in my life than they are. I need to put in my efforst only as I am, not as I was or think i’m going to be. Does that make sense?
(another deap breath) I feel better now. Thank you, I appreciate you listening and being a soundboard. I know that I need to be patient and worry about myself and my health and what *I* bring to the table and the best way to survive is to live well, be positive and remind myself that I am where I am, and they are where they are.
