Today, I’m here to rant!
I had the most annoying week last week.
Two words; G R O U P W O R K
So in my public speaking class, my lecturer grouped us into different groups and asked us to write a speech presentation on the topic he gave us. My group topic was Citizen Journalism and the Practice Of Modern Journalism.
I have come to hate group assignments with every being in me. I’m the type of person that prefers to work alone because I don’t really do well with other people’s opinions in my school work.
And the worst part of group assignments; when you’re the only one who is active and putting effort. But in my case, only two and a half people were active members out of 7! Yes I meant half
Imagine my frustration
And alsoooo if I am told to write a presentation on a topic, I really hate internet copy and paste work.
And guess what, that’s exactly what these people wanted to do.
Oh Lord. O ja mi lara je (insert that Funke man meme)
You can’t give me an internet copy and paste work to submit that would cost half of my grade (Please I reject any spirit of carryover)
And even guess what, I’m the speaker LOL
I really don’t even mind being the speaker since I aced my public speaking speech presentation last semester (i made a blog post about it which you can read here)
So I guess I’m getting good at this public speaking thing. Stage fright semi-gone
So how can my group members give me Internet PDF copy and paste and expect me to read it and present it.
The lecturer even hates stolen internet work.
I know what most of you are thinking; mama just get it from the internet jor no dey stress yourself
It’s not like I love to stress myself. I’m a strong advocate of the babygirl lifestyle till I die, but I really cannot read and understand PDF work, it has to be in my own language and understanding so as to be comfortable presenting it.

So I literally just presented now. I was shaking but it still went really well. Thank God
