Everything starts here
Today I had a presentation with my group – this for the Riding for the Disabled organisation that we’re volunteering for. I, personally, was not prepared for the presentation, and had a few troubles opening up the website mockup that I did, but thankfully we had a screenshot and I still have the files uploaded to the university repository. I actually yakked on for about five minutes about the parts that I did for the project and I didn’t have a speech prepared.
It’s hilarious how I keep doing this. First, I run to the station in several minutes when it should take at least fifteen, and now I continue preparing presentations five minutes before I’m due to present, or I don’t prepare at all. I really should expect to die young. 😰
I think we all did really well as part of the group, and I’m going to give everyone in my group good marks for the peer review because they were that awesome. They were very cooperative. I am, of course, comparing this project to projects I’ve had in the past, for which I’ve had very lazy group members.
I recall one of my first group assignments in university – and I might have mentioned it before – but nothing really went to plan and we were quite disorganised, not to mention I didn’t really know the people in my group well at all; and as a result I wasn’t able to attend many group meetings, nor the important meeting where we did our interview that we had to film. I mean, my group members notified me that they were meeting… forty minutes before they were meeting. I don’t think that was fair; I mean, hello, I live far from university and you could really have been more considerate. Wah.
Anyway, out with the complaining. I’m still happy with the mark I received for that assignment considering I didn’t contribute much to the group.
This time around it all went well, and I have nothing to complain about. I think I’m mostly relieved because we were really falling behind last week but pulled it all together! We’ve got a group report due next week and we’ve got a head start on that… I wrote 1,200 words and as a group we’re only meant to have 3,000. I’m amused. :P
In other good news, I got a phone call from someone from the university to let me know of the status of my application for postgraduate study. Basically, I wasn’t approved for the Master of Interactive Multimedia (MIM), but instead for the Graduate Diploma. The only difference between the two is that the MIM has another six months’ worth of work – a digital media project. I still have the option to obtain a Masters degree when I complete the Graduate Diploma. :) I’m pretty happy about that.
I can’t believe I have three weeks of my Bachelor degree left. I’m excited. I just want to get it over and done with. I’m not sure what I’m looking forward to. I’m not looking forward to a break per se, but I’m looking forward to just finishing. I think I’ll like the feeling. /bounce I think I am also excited to have some time to work and to pull things together, catch up on shows I haven’t watched and just try new things overall. It’s going to be great and very relaxing, at least until I pick up studies again. But I’m looking forward to the change. I’m excited to finish my communication degree. /eee
Anyway, I’m inviting readers to ask me some questions. If there’s anything you want to ask me, feel free, especially if it might have a long answer. I guess some of you know me pretty well or will find answers by searching the website and browsing through old posts, but I like receiving new questions to answer. I will select some questions and answer them in upcoming blog posts so ask away. I’ll answer anything as long as it’s not too personal, and if it isn’t long enough I might just respond to you directly.
Also, don’t forget about the The “I Love” Project. You can still write a blog post about what you love and link back to the The “I Love” Project page. Let me know and I can add your blog post to the list. :D
