I love the vibe of student projects

January 11th, 2007

"Alright, how about we meet again here, tomorrow at 10am?"

"How about 10:30?"

"10:30 it is." *hammer falls*

These meetings just make you feel good. There's no pressure, no stress, it's just chatting. Not a lot gets done, it's mostly discussing the workload, dividing it up, making decisions that have to be made in the group. Then you mix it in with cracks about the teacher, about the assignment, it's fun.

Once you get home that's when the real work starts. Research, writing, designing.. But it's project work, there's freedom, room for improv. You get feedback, but no one is bsing you about not following some arbitrary rule that makes no sense. Not until the teacher is assessing the work.

    I hated those meetings, in my experience they always lasted too long. Ten minutes of actually discussing the work if you were to dissect the meeting, and 50 minutes of chatting about bullshit that I don't care about.
    Of course I usually had the misfortune of being in a group of people that I didn't click with so it was just plain torture. Once I had a nice group, that was alright. But meetings... not my thing no matter what the circumstances.

    Yeah, I totally agree. Except in student projects :-) Those meetings have a good vibe to them and even if they last 3 hours I don't mind it.

    Well that's good, cause meetings definitely set a tone for the project don't they? So much easier if the meetings are enjoyable
