I remember that in Year 4, my judo trainings were filled with our Year 5 seniors complaining about the dreaded Project Work. From the intense work to the horrible group mates… well, I can’t say I was anticipating it, coming into Year 5.
Just a short disclaimer: My PW experience definitely does not reflect everyone else’s, because of different group mates and of course, different teachers.
Now that PW is pretty much over (with just OP and I&R – the two least group-ish components – left), I can say, with quite some pleasant surprise, that PW was not quite as bad as I had expected. Of course, it’s largely due to my luck in being allocated some great group mates.
They say you learn to understand yourself better in group work and certainly, I have come to understand what I don’t like and what I probably shouldn’t do.
