Blog Post 8

Wow I can’t believe it’s mid-term already. It seems like yesterday this semester was just beginning and now we’re half way done. Now that we’re half way thru the semester I have gotten better with a lot of things. My blogs have gotten longer and stronger, I’m no longer a big procrastinator, and I stay on top of my work. I have learned to manage my time a lot better. I do all of my work first than I attend to my social life. I use to have a hard time doing that. I use to put off homework just so I could go hang with friends or whatever and I had to learn the hard way that that wasn’t the right thing to do. With this class you have to learn to manage your time wisely because if you, you’ll probably end up not passing this class.

            Even though the semester is going by pretty fast, it has been a great semester so far. I’m doing well in all my classes; I’m doing a lot better with my procrastination. I just hope to finish this semester out with a BANG!

After working on the wiki project alone last week, I have come to realize that I actually like working in groups better. The part of the project that I wasn’t hard or anything, I think I just had gotten used to working with other people. When I’m working by myself, I lose focus very easily; my mind is always wondering somewhere else. I’m very hard on myself and most of the time I think that I’m doing the project wrong. I have a fear that when I’m working alone that the project isn’t going to be right or something like that and I’m afraid that I’m not going to make a good grade on it. I think working in groups is much better for me, just so I won’t be so hard on myself and so I won’t be thinking that the project isn’t going to be correct. I guess I’ll have to get used to working alone because our next project we’re working alone on this project. I’m kind of afraid of working alone on this project as well. Like I said before I’m very hard on myself and I’m thinking that I won’t do my best on this project, but I know if I have any questions one of my classmates will help me.

We are doing another wiki project this week and this time I’m working alone. It feels strange working alone because the last couple of weeks we have been in groups. I use to be hate working in groups before I took this class, now I actually like it. My problem this week is that I’m not in a group and I’m afraid that I won’t my best on this project. I think that I have gotten so used to working in a group, that I’m afraid my project won’t be its best because I’m working alone. I mean I know I can produce a good project alone, but it may not be as good as the people that are working in groups. Sometimes I need motivation for me to my work and being in a group was my motivation, but now that I’m working alone I have to be my own motivation and get my work done.

            My challenges this week is working alone and trying to do my best on this project. I know it’s not a hard project, but I know that I ‘am able to do it. So I hope do a good job on this wiki project. I also know that if I need help with anything that anyone of my classmates will help me.

I’m really excited about our group Wiki project. I think since just about the whole class is working on the project now, it’s going to turn out really good. I think each group had did a really good job on their Wiki project, but as a class I know we can make them better, and get them to good article standard. I hope our article can meet good article standard and make Mrs. Sasser proud of us. Our fair use article wasn’t what it was supposed to be. We didn’t put what was supposed to be in the article. Since the whole class in now working on it, I know that it will have everything it needs to have in it. It made me feel really good today when everyone came to the library to work on our articles. That let me know that everyone really cares about this project and wants to make a good grade. I was very nervous when we were first given this project because I didn’t know what to expect from this project. I thought it was going to be very hard to do, but since I have started working on it, it’s actually very easy. I just hope the article turns out very good and meets good article standard.
