How to Survive Group Projects…for Someone Who Hates Group Projects

I HATE group projects. As in pure, seething hatred. They’re just so awkward! There’s always one person who does no work, but who no one will confront; one ridiculously annoying know it all that tries to control everything; and, in the end, one uncomfortably read aloud PowerPoint presentation. The second a professor says we’ll be working in groups, I’m literally filled with dread.

Unfortunately, group projects are unavoidable. I managed to go without any last year, but I”m sure my luck will run out soon, which is why I’ve formulated a simple must-do guide to group projects.

      I really don't want it to be this way, but as written by ahoytherekatie, I really like to do a good job and if they want to contribute I think they should take part in the discussions.

      I might seem like a bitch, and I even might be, but I try not to
