When you have to complete a group project

But you’re the only one working on the project

Pretty much sums up high school for me 😅



  1. I love this
    Great post! I can totally relate to the feeling of being the only one working on a project. However, I’m curious to know – have you ever tried to motivate or inspire other group members to participate? If so, what strategies did you use? If not, do you think it’s worth trying or is it better to just go it alone?

  2. Ah, high school is a long time ago for me.

    But if I could go back in time, I would definitely start with dividing tasks, put it in writing, make everyone sign it and send it back to the teacher.
    Planning is half the job!

    Ideally everyone would get at least one task they like or are good at so that everyone can stay motivated to also finish the less desirable tasks together 😄


  3. Oh, the pain! Myself a loner [IT projects are rarely group efforts where the rubber meets the road: that great fiction called “program coding”] I suffered many “group projects” through college which left a bad taste for the “new” way of “learning.” Is that why I love writing, even when my readers can be counted on the fingers of one hand? I had to chuckle over your brief splatter of words across my screen. A chuckle rates a comment. And a “Thank you.”

  4. Hah, as a fellow engineering (albeit electrical), I can relate to being a loner.
    Always hated answering the question “do you like working in a team” during a job interview 😒 because no, I rarely do 😅

    I’ll follow you right back!
    If ever any of the drawings inspire you for a post, just let me know and I’ll link your post in mine for hopefully more traffic to your blog! 🙂

  5. Thank you sincerely for the invitation. I like your work. I’ll be honest and admit for a moment I thought you might be the one to illustrate a [parents: read with your children] book gathering dust. Two actually. One is [chuckle] a definite maybe, your style would be perfect. The other, I’ve precise ideas for how I want it illustrated, and that style is one most cannot master or even care to master. The idea, the possibilities, and your work will percolate in my grey matter. Thank you for your time and we may have an opportunity to “chat” again.
