THE TERRIBLE GROUP PROJECT (Story Time)


Hey guys, my name is Cypher Den and this video is sponsored by Wix You can check Wix by clicking the link in the descriptions down below to get started on making your very own website today Group Projects no sane person Likes group projects and I’m convinced the teachers give out group projects as a weird sick form of torture You have to work with people that you’d never talked to in the first place and some people that you never even knew existed Everyone has different and contradicting ideas that can’t be settled by beating someone with a bat There’s a high chance that you’ll have to be a good percentage of the project Well the other half of the group writes their name and say they helped by blinking and somehow you’ll be graded as a group No matter how much or how little work you did in the first place cause-cause that sounds completely fair I personally don’t even mind group projects anymore Since I’ve fully accepted the fact that I might actually have to sacrifice myself Along with my firstborn child for extra work whenever I work with a group of freeloading monkeys Most of my college courses has been torturing us to do group projects back-to-back to numb us- I mean, I mean prepare us for the outside world. So at this point it was even really a big deal anymore Not everyone that you’re gonna work with it’s gonna be completely terrible group works can go smoothly when everyone’s on the same page Regardless you get used to the different type of people that you end up with when you have to work in groups The leader, the person that needs to make sure that every part of the task is done Taking the role of the leader even though there was no appointed leader in the first place. They are high key a control freak That doesn’t listen to anyone’s opinions other than their own but safe to say nothing really gets done without them Aka the one who’d text you during in the middle of the night asking you how you are? Where you are? And what you’re doing Right now? Like they care about you but really just wants to know if you’re getting the project done and Don’t be shocked. If you find a GPS on you at one point throughout the project. The M.I.A (Missing in Action) This is a kid that never shows up to class You’re not even sure if they’re alive or not, but safe to say they show up once in a blue moon Then again, you don’t even know if they’ll show up on presentation day So you don’t even trust them with a task cause that’s just straight-up gambling. The extra baggage These are the ones that you want to slap some senses into because they literally offer little to no help to the group They’re usually super lazy and could care less You can task them with breathing and they’ll somehow still have an excuse and start suffocating halfway through a sentence The artsy one this is generally where I fall into this is the one and only time that we get chosen first for anything. If there’s anything that needs to be drawn or made to look pretty. Give them glue and markers and they’ll make anything look presentable, but fair warning, don’t touch the art. They might just bite your hand off. The volunteer speaker. Usually and I say usually that the person that voluntarily elects themselves as speaker Assumes that they don’t have to do any work at all because they have to speak in front of the class All right. Nice work everyone. Lets first some person look good. In fact, I hope my presenting your-I mean our work. But if the teacher asks anything, you guys got it, right? The clueless one. They don’t even know that they are part of your group. They just kind of stare into space and exist. So with that said I had a group project for storyboarding class in college This is one of those long haul group projects Which pretty much takes up the whole semester and you have to do a presentation in the end I ended up working with Kermit, who was very outspoken and pretty much had an opinion on everything Ghost, who rarely talked and usually never showed up for class and Coconut, who barely spoke English so there was a little bit of a language barrier and Then there is me and I’m not gonna say that I’m the perfect groupmate because I’m not and then know for a fact that I’m probably the worst choice for a Speaker. On the other hand, I can make things look really pretty with an 80% chance of burning things by accident Okay. Yes I accidentally burnt one of my projects and almost burned down my kitchen But it’s okay because we got an A. The first couple of weeks of our projects were brainstorm weeks We usually had an hour from class where we brainstormed our stories. Every week, we would present our ideas to our professor . We’ll name him professor X because this bald head was legit brighter than my future. The first week the group threw around some ideas Kermit took the role of self-appointed leader and didn’t listen to anyone’s input then went to present his brilliant game changing when One-of-a-kind ideas. Safe to say professor X shut down Kermit’s amazing Disney show ripoffs. The following week that decided that every week We’ll all come up with ideas for our stories and we’ll come back and present the top four ideas. That way we can all split up the workload without having to meet up after class on top of our already busy 7 plus classes schedule, also if someone can’t make it, cough cough ghost cough cough, We’ll still have work to hand in. So we had this group project Down packed for about 5 weeks or so. Ghost already missed a couple weeks, but everything went smooth as butter Well one day I couldn’t make its class because ya girl had a job interview at Apple You know I really had to get a job because I’m pretty sure my inside was slowly disintegrating from eating nothing but Doritos and coke also We had to buy two hundred plus dollars worth of mandatory books for each class that we only used like once or twice One of my professors even made us buy his own damn book like why is that even allowed? My interview was super last minute So I ended up missing my class, you know, either miss a class or try to get a job. No brainer, right? Plus we’ve already had a system. So my group was gonna be fine. Yeah, that was my first mistake So after my job interview I want to get lunch with my friends and I got an email from Professor X pretty much stating how irresponsible I am for missing the class I’m pretty sure that I’m allowed to miss at least two classes per course and I’m sure that other people miss class before but okay as I read on it said how Irresponsible I am for missing the class when I was responsible for the group’s story for the week If I can just email the group’s files to the professor and since I didn’t show up to class that I will get points deducted from my grades because I let the group down by taking responsibility for holding on to their work and not showing up and I will get, hear this, a big fat zero on my assignment even if I send in to work So I can learn to be more responsible for my actions Um Excuse me See, I’m usually not the type of person that gets heated, but boy I was heated I mean I had my work that I’ve done 100% by me with no help from my group whatsoever. But if I hand it in Imma get a big fat voluptuous zero Plus points deducted from my grades. How does that even make sense? I just missed one class and upon further research, AKA my other classmates spilled mad tea during lunch. Hey, yo Professor X just emailed me What happened in class. Oh Your group completely threw you under the bus. It was a train wreck, Kermit went up and it was a Complete and utter mess. When everything went to shiiiiiii Girl they just ended up blaming you on everything and I mean everything So with this newfound boiling tea of information I rewrote my story ideas just so I can write my name in big giant letters. Cause this bish did all the work and I ain’t about sit down and then my work get points deducted and get a big ol zero while my group gets a mother trucking A for breathing Oh Sweetie. No, I’m not about to be anyone’s scapegoat for their own laziness. No, uh-uh We don’t play. So ya girl send an email to her professor explaining the situation And I kind of went on a rogue mission here, if I’m going down with this trainwreck of a group project I’m dragging my whole group down. Thanks for throwing me under the bus, but we’re all going down together fools, you know like a group. Sadly Professor X wouldn’t let me change groups and still gave points to my group for Doing absolutely nothing other than breathing but I didn’t get points deducted or a zero But Professor X also ended up knowing what was up, you know? I need you best bet that I went through the whole semester with a smile. So heard y’all did really Well last week. Want to tell me about it? I still somehow ended up with a good chunk of the work after the fact so each and every week I plastered my name on anything I’ve ever done and I was really obnoxious with it every single page every single drawing then I worked on had my name on it up until presentation day. No shame whatsoever We even had sample characters that we gave back to the class on Presentation day and yeah on the back of every single printout. I had my name on it. I did 90% of the group work, 90% of the slides and presenting Yeah, the whole class is gonna know and in hindsight Maybe it was hella petty on my end But I’m just not about backstabbery.
