Take the Soy Sauce(打酱油)

When it came to the end of today's lecture, many classmates started to choose their teammates for the mobile-cloud project. I felt a bit lost when I realized that I still didn't form my new group yet. The IOS guys should be very popular and they should have already been booked ahead. As the programmers normally tend to form groups with technical guys, there might not be enough programmers left in the end. It would be good to form a group as soon as possible. Unfortunately, I didn't take the good timing for grouping. I am still not over with the FB app yet. However, many groups have already formed. I do feel a sense of insecure. Who will I be working with? The cruel thing is the that stronger people will tend to choose to work with strong team members. What if there are not enough programmers in the team? That's almost impossible to get things done.The fortunate thing is that the people in the class are really astonishing. But I'm also not that confident on my programming skills. I do feel I was taking the soy source in the Facebook app group as I really didn't contribute a lot to the team. Hopefully I'll finish strong but the deed is that I am still pretty weak. Jiayou la!

  1. The cruel thing is the that stronger people will tend to choose to work with strong team members.

    Personally, I actually like this outcome. I think it's a fair outcome. People just keep in mind why they are in this course and that's to learn something. Ultimately, if you get not quite as good a grade as others who are better than you, it's a fair outcome. You have to learn to focus on your own development and see how far you can push yourself. Comparing to others is really not very helpful in general. :-)

  2. Thanks Prof. Ben. I agree with you. It's really about reaching out for our own potentials instead of others'.
    I didn't concern that much on the grouping now. Learning is more important. Every group can make great work if they determine to do so. Cheers:)
