In the beginning, when the project was first assigned, my group was all really enthusiastic about the project. We all wanted to get A’s on everything and not let eachother down by always being on time to group meetings with all of our work done. As time went on, though, we became less and less enthusiastic. We just wanted the project to be over with. We still came with work completed, but with less enthusiasm.
As a group, we agreed the project had been dragged on for such a long time. We were so tired of reading about fish in India. We were even joking around that we were starting to break one of the rules on our constitution: “always come to group meetings with a smile on your face”.
We found the pros of group work was that we could bounce ideas off of each other. But groups work was also really frustrating at times. Especially when we were writing the paper. It was hard to combine our ideas, and that made the process slower. It was extremely frustrating.
