The End of Semester Stress Fest

So many group assignments, so little time to complete them! I can barely even keep track of which group is doing what for each class. Luckily, there are many different types of people in this world, and each person usually takes on a role in their group.

I find that in each group there is a leader; someone who sorts out who does what and when the group meets, the person who does all the writing, the researcher and if your unlucky, the person who does as little as they can get away with. Because of all these different types of people, I am glad that most of our classes allow us to rate our group members. If someone is slacking, they don't deserve to get a higher mark with the rest of the group.

Working in groups really gives us a good idea of what the working world will be like. If we are going to become advertisers and marketers, we are going to end up stuck with a lot of group work. We will most likely have to work with a marketing team. If we aren't prepared for this type of work, its going to come as a real shock to us when we enter the work force.

Needless to say, I will be very happy when all these group projects are over. Five at once is a little hard handle, but it is better than having a lineup of exams. This way we are not on our own, each student has at least 2 other pairs of eyes to look over their work for mistakes, and having a stress fest is much more fun when your with your friends!

Here are some easy stress relief tips! I also recommend not procrastinating. Just get what you have to do over with!
