Hi everyone! Today I am going to teach you all on how to not be a bangang antarabangsa when it comes to group assignments. A thread;
1.When you form a group, keep in mind that you are collaborating with different people whose goals in university may differ from you. Some are probably scholarship students who are riding on their results to sustain themselves. Some may have have parents trying to make ends meet-
-just for them to be able to attend university. Do not screw things up for them just because you are privileged enough to be born with a golden spoon.
2. If you are added to a group, reply when necessary. Do not act irresponsible by just reading and letting people know you are alive. No one would bother you if you do not have a task to accomplish. Saying “Sorry, I didn’t know there was something to reply to” is the most-
-selfish thing to say because your input is important, regardless if it is your responsibility or not. If you want to say something as silly as that, you might as well keep your lip service for yourself.
3. Do not act dumb. There is no such thing as stupidity. This is not the episode of FRIENDS where Ross and Chandler are trying to get the couch up the stairs that can’t accommodate its size. If you are in that class, given the same assignment as your acquaintances, you are NOT-
stupid. You may be a bit slow but that’s okay because all you need to do is work a little harder than the rest. YOU DO NOT GET THE GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY TO ACT DUMB JUST BECAUSE YOU ARE LAZY. If you really do not know how to do something, you can always ask.
4. I repeat do not act dumb.
5. When you are given a deadline to meet, you MEET THE FKING DEADLINE. You do not wait till the date you are supposed to pass your work up to your group members to say “I am sorry but I could not find any information”. If you ever pull this on anyone, do not complain when they-
-throw a brick to your head. You are not only being selfish but you are also the biggest cashew nut in the world. I am all for last minute work and procrastination in uni, but this is just crossing the line.
6. If you are not fluent in the language you are supposed to hand your work in, you can always tell your group members so that you all can work accordingly. Do not keep silent and hand in work like-
-“A former salesman who has even working since 2010 until 2016, his name is Cori Fisher” on the day of your actual submission. What am i supposed to do with the fact that his name is Cori Fisher? What are you trying to tell me?
7. Respect people’s timing. If you promised someone something at a precise time, fulfil it and not play fool of their time. Everyone has their own business to attend to. If you think you are the only one that has plans planned out, grow up. Emergency situations excluded,-
-everything else is child’s play. Everyone has 24 hours in a day. What makes you any different from the people in your group?
8. You are in university. You earned the right to be here. Act accordingly and be kind to the people around you. If you need help, ask. Do not be shy. We are all learning and we grow even better when we have people guiding us. I appreciate effort, do not get me wrong.-
-However, costing others what the grade they deserve because you can’t care less or because you are not confident enough to voice out is not fair for them. It is 2018. We all support progress.
If you made it this far, thank you for coming to my TED talk. I hope you have learnt how to not be a bangang antarabangsa.
