groupmates

Mga Uri ng Groupmates.

Nerdy One - Ito yung leader o yung taong matalino sa grupo, maaring hindi rin matalino pero masipag. Ito yung kapag sinabing leader eh alam mo na halos siya na ang gagawa ng report, group project niyo.

Yes Man! - Yung ka grupo na Oo lang ng OO pero naka headset naman, halatang gorabels lang sa mga sinasabi ng leader sa grupo, ito yung mga madalas na naka dorm lang. Ito yung mga tao na madaling kontakin sa oras ng kailangan, pwede maging side kick. Kasi madalas na grade concious ang mga ito.

1000 Reasons Man - ito yung ka grupo mo na lalake na alam mong batugan, ito yung mga maraming dahilan. Yung tipong kapag nagsabi ka ng schedule eh magdadahilan agad ito na hindi makakapunta. At kapag nilipat mo ulit ang schedule eh sasabihin niyang may pasok siya sa mga oras na yun. Ito ang mga ka grupo na masarap ihulog sa third floor.

Biglaang Lakad - Ito yung mga tao na biglang hindi susulpot sa araw ng meeting, yung biglaang may nangyari, biglaang may lakad, biglaang nagpasama yung nanay, biglaang nagpasama yung lola sa ospital para mag pacheck up. Nagpasama yung Lolo mag jogging at yung walang kamatayang Family Reunion.

Makati ang Pwet - Ito naman yung mga kagrupo na gusto na lagi umuwi, hindi mo alam kung gutom na o gusto lang maglaro ng DOTA, paano ba naman mawawalan daw siya ng pwesto at may pustahan pa daw sila. Kung babae naman, nag hihintay na kasi yung boypren niya para sa Date nila sa pinakamalapit na Hotel, este kainan.

Wala lang - Ito yung saling ketket, yung parang wala lang sa grupo. Yung parang naiwan ang utak sa bahay nila, wala sa sarili. Banggag, yung mga taong nagtatanong sa huli kapag pauwi na ang lahat.

Supervisors - Ito yung mga akala mo kung sino, wala namang na cocontribute sa grupo. Wala namang ginagawa, yung naka upo lang, parang saling ketket lang din. Pero kapag tinawag mo naman sila eh may atensyon pa rin namang na cocontribute.

Anak ni Mayor - Ito yung mayayaman na kagrupo mo, yung gusto nila wala na silang gagawin. Pero sila yung mag papa print, sila na lang yung magbabayad ng mga gastusin na ginawa ng grupo. Kulang nalang ata pati merienda mo eh ilibre ng mga taong Anak ng Mayor. Ito rin yung mga tao na itetext ka lang kung ayos na ba at tatanungin kung ano pa ang babayaran niya.

Kanina habang nagprapraktis kami, may mga magaganda at pangit na bagay ang nangyari, at dahil dun nakabuo ako ng labing-isang uri ng groupmates.
  1. Leader- Sila yung laging gumagawa ng settings, time, at plan ng group. Sila yung laging may idea. Sila yung laging nasusunod kasi sila yung in-assign ng teacher.
  2. Idea Giver- sila yung mga artistic, laging may idea at plan. Sila yung laging kasama ng leader kasi lagi mutual ang iniisip nila, at pareho sila nang layunin na magkaroon ng maayos at magandang outcome. Sila yung taong lagi pinag-aagawan.
  3. Followers- Sila yung tipo ng groupmates na sunod ng sunod lang. Kahit anong sabihin ng leader okay lang, kasi minsan ayaw niya nang kumontra kasi baka magkagulo lang, o kaya naman sumusunod na lang sila kasi yun na lang ang matutulong nila.
  4. Quiet- sila yung laging present pero absent ang presence, sila yung mga nasa gilid lang at may ibang mundo. Sila yung tatanungin mo kung anong sinabi mo dahil hindi sila nakikinig. Medyo related sila sa mga Followers, dahil sinusunod lang nila yung mga sinasabi ng Leader.
  5. Late Comers- Sila yung huling dumadating, sila yung may magagandang idea kaso hindi nasusunod kasi hindi sila yung leader saka wala silang karapatan kasi nagawa na yung plano at mahirap magsimula ulit. Sila yung mga taong nasasabihan ng “Dapat kanina ka pa nandito para kanina mo pa nasabi”.
  6. Nuisance- in tagalog “asungot”, sila yung panggulo lang, sila yung mga maiingay at laging hindi sumusunod. Sila yung mga pasaway.
  7. Joker- medyo konektado sila sa mga Nuisance, pero in a funny way, sila yung mga gumagawa ng segway para magpatawa. Sila yung dahilan kung bakit entertaining, hindi boring at ang sarap panuorin ng presentation.
  8. Antagonists- ang kontrabida, sila yung laging may reklamo at against sa leader, may iba silang idea kaya ganun, o kaya naman hindi nila gusto ang idea. Ganun pa man, sila yung nakakatulong para maiayos yung presentation kasi sila ang nakakapansin ng mali at hindi magagandang bagay.
  9. Explorer- sila yung after gumala ayaw pa umuwi at gusto muna magbahay-bahay. Sila yung tumatakas sa mga gawaing bahay o kaya naman walang magawa sa bahay. 
  10. Always absent - 
    • Mga may strict na parents at laging hindi pinapayagan, dahil baka gumala lang daw ito, o kaya naman masyadong secure ang parents na baka hindi safe ang lugar na pupuntahan nito.
    • Mga tinatamad, sila yung mas gusto pang magDotA/computer kaysa pumunta sa practice, sila yung laging walang alam at walang interes sa presentation. Sila yung laging hindi alam ang partisipasyon at nag-aabsent na lang sa araw ng presentasyon.
    • Mga busy o kaya naman may excuse letter, yung mga hindi makakapunta kasi may work, may review, may pupuntahan, at iba pa. Sila yung mga text ng text ng “Sorry hindi ako makakapunta, babawi na lang ako sa susunod”. Absent man sila, nagpapakita pa rin naman sila ng interes at may natutulong parin sila sa group presentation dahil alam nila yung gagawin nila with the help of text and internet, at maaga silang pumapasok o pumunta sa araw ng presentation para paghandaan ang part nila.
  11. Rich kid- sila yung mga kaklase mong sagot ang bahay ng pagprapraktisan at ang meryanda niyo. Sila yung may mga WiFi sa bahay, at may gadget pangresearch at selfie. Sila laging sagot o nagaabuna sa mga group expenses. 
Way back mem'ries during our System Analysis and Design (SAD) subject.

In partial fulfillment to our Bachelor Degree, it is a must that we have to take the subject SAD. It so happened that before that, we already planned who’s gonna be our group mates. But then, suddenly, all changed. Supposedly, we are 5 in a group. Me, Jay-r, Julie, Clifford and Jon. But then, 3 of them changed their schedule for that subject. We talked to our professor if we could just stay as a group but she said, we cannot. Sadly, me and Jon have to look for another set of group mates.

At first, I was nervous and I just came to the point that I felt no hope in finding our group mates. //Of course, I should consider their ability also. Because I don’t want that group working not as a group.// So I took Vincent and Rhona with us. Then, all was settled.

Vincent was the one who gave the idea of doing an Inventory System in Philippine Commission on Women where his mom is working. Gladly, it is a relief for me because we don’t have to find another company. So we decided working on that system.

We had our company visit and it was cool. We travel and not knowing exactly where that government agency was. But then, we successfully arrived on the place. Here are some of our pictures taken during our company visit and interview, at the same time.

Ms. Lazaro, Head of Supply Section.

It was really hard. I did the documentation, they did the coding, and other stuffs. But all turned out really good during our defense. Though there are some revisions, gladly we passed. :) I’m super happy.

We received a grade of 1.5 for that subject.

Mga pasaway kami kasi sinita kami nung kumukuha kami ng pictures. Kasi naman, bawal pala lumapit talaga sa Malacañang. Kahit tumapak lang sa gutter nito. Hahaha. Sorreh naman po. Hindi namin alam e. Now we know. :)

Kapag may taong gustong sumali sa grupo mo pero alam mong tamad siya.

Ano nga ba ang magandang gawin? Ano nga kaya ang tamang diskarte para dito? Siguro sa una maari mo siyang tanggapin? At sabihin mo sa kanya ang mga bagay na ito.

  • Kuya/Ate kaya na naman namin ito, pero dahil nga sa normal na estudyante lang rin naman kami at nilagay namin ang sarili mo sa katayuan mo, eh mahirap nga maghanap ng ka grupo, pero sana po hindi ka tamad.
  • Kuya/Ate wala na ba talaga sa ibang group? Ok na naman kami eh, may naka reserve na kasi sa slot namin. Try niyo po sa iba, baka pwede pa. Sorry po ( kung sobrang ayaw mo talaga)
  • Kuya/Ate papayag kaming sumali ka, pero we have the right na tanggalin ka kapag hindi ka na tumutulong at puro dahilan ka na lang sa amin ha?
  • Kuya/Ate hindi po pwede dito yung ambag ambag lang, yung kami yung gagawa pero ikaw magbabayad lang? May pera din naman kami, so hindi namin kailangan niyan.
  • Kuya/Ate ok lang naman, pero sana alam mo na groupmates tayo, ibig sabihin grupo nating gagawin ito at hindi individual. Iisang grade lang ang makukuha natin dito, kaya sana po wag tatamad tamad.

Marami pa eh, siguro naman kapag nasabi mo yung iba diyan eh mahiya na ito sayo at siya pa ang maging pinakamasipag sa grupo. Minsan pakita mo na palaban ka, yung tipong parang kakainin mo siya ng buhay. Hirap kasi kapag medyo malamya ka o kaya naman sobrang bait-baitan eh baka abusuhin ito at akalain niyang ok lang lahat ang pinag gagawa niya. Nasasayo naman yan eh, gusto mo ng matinong ka grupo? Maging matinong leader ka.

This photo was taken when we first had our overnight for our Systems/MIS. Jan adopted me and Joy for 2 days and 1 night. I have a crazy group!!! =)))) There was never a dull moment working with them. Although I admit we always make fun of each other and yes, most of the time tease each other, we still manage to finish tasks on time (hurrah for that! :D). We, as a group, have a goal. To finish this semester remarkably. :) WE CAN. WE WILL. :)

Iba't ibang uri ng groupmates.
Masaya tayo tuwing merong groupings para sa isang project o kung ano pa man pero sa umpisa lang ‘yan masaya dahil merong mga groupmates na may kakaibang pag-uugali, ang ilan sa mga ito ay ang:
  1. Leader-leaderan - Hindi naman siya ang leader pero kung makapag-utos ng kung ano ang gagawin akala mo kung sinong magaling.
  2. Free rider - Swerte na kung umattend siya ng first meeting niyo o kaya'y nagtetext kung saan ang meeting pero hindi naman sisipot. Wala lang, walang ginawa pero may grade.
  3. Atribida - Lahat na lang kinontra, ikaw na lang kaya ang gumawa?
  4. Ningas kugon awardee - Wagas kung makavolunteer na siya ang gagawa ng ganito ng ganyan pero pag palapit na ang deadline, walang maipasa.
  5. Sipag king/ queen - Ang katambal ng mga free riders, sila na ang masipag at sila na gumagawa ng lahat. Nung nagsabog ng kasipagan eh sinalo nila lahat.

Sino ka sa kanila? 

    My internship groupmates and I went on our first out of town trip to Laguna. It would have been more fun if we had the whole day to spend, but we had clinic in the morning. Good thing though, traffic was pretty light. We arrived around 9 in the evening.

    We cooked food which i’ll post later. Had some alcohol and abused the karaoke machine from arrival until we left 7 in the morning. Had so much fun! I actually just had 20 minutes nap before leaving again for Manila.  

    Oh Groupings

    Our professor asked us to answer Belbin test which was already formatted in Microsoft Excel to generate our preferred team roles. My results are shown below.

    Honestly, this is the first time I’ve seen the results (as in right now while I was typing this blog haha). I’ve never checked it until I saw that there were two tabs. The results really reflected how I work with a group of people. Actually, I was laughing when I shared my results with my thesis partner. There were really times that I was indecisive in crunch situations (hi sir haha) and really averted friction (ayoko makipag-away :D ).

    In my honest opinion, I think this was the best grouping I’ve ever had in terms of meeting new people. Everyone’s really contributing to finish the activity assigned to us. Some of my groupmates finished their assigned task days before the deadline. It’s like each one of them knew what to do. Moreover, I don’t feel so old with my groupmates (hahaha). They were really really approachable. It’s not hard for me to blend in especially I’m not really part of their group because of our batches. And they were understanding when I could not go to our meeting or could not pass the group’s deadline (bumabawi naman po ako haha).

    This is the first time na hindi ako nagworry sa mga deadlines and homework. I am really an over thinker in terms of doing assigned workload. Sometimes, I tend to do things not assigned to me. But hello group 2, hindi lang halata pero I’m so thankful that you were my groupmates in this subject. Thank you for making my CE 132 experience extra special! :)

    ‘Twas my birthday yesterday and alot of people had already gave me presents. I mean small gifts, not that appliances or anything. Lol. But today, when we had our dinner at the mid of our shift, we went at the Riverside (street food galore). First Ryan Bang and Jason Abalos crossed infront of me without even noticing it. One of my classmates even screamed at me saying I have those two infront of me. I just laughed when I realized it (Stupidity at its finest) And while we’re about to eat, my groupmates brought out this cake and sang me a birthday song, merrily. I was so shy that all of the people at the area were smiling at me, saying happy birthdays and even synchronized singing with my groupmates. I’m so touched. They’re the sweetest! The cake was good, even better with the shredded dark chocolate in it.

    Group Work

    I’ve never had so much fucking problems working in a group. I’m a communicator so I will constantly communicate with my group mates letting them know where I’m at and what I need help with. I will tell them if I’m slacking somewhere and whether or not I’m going to make the deadline we’ve set up. I have my email constantly open, waiting for something. My discussion box open all the time ready for any kind of discussion. I have my phone on me constantly, and I will get back to you within five minutes if I’m not busy, and if I am, I would let you know I am busy and that I would get back.

    I am a person that will get back to someone immediately when it comes to group work.

    But what pisses me off right now is that I had to tolerate with two people who are the worst at communicating with me. I know that we have our own different writing style, we have our own way of doing things and what not, but seriously. I have managed to set my life schedule aside in order to work on this damn paper that is due today, and yet, they weren’t even willing to work together. I have made the effort in telling them that I am free on these days and that I do not mind the drive out, especially since it’s a paper that we need to ALL CONTRIBUTE TO. But nope. Every meet that we set up, or TRY to, never happens. And this Saturday, they both fucking bailed on me. One to fucking busy study for a final, and cannot take a fucking few hours out of their time to come out and edit the damn paper. Another TOO TIRED from work, and can’t fucking manage to get out there for a few hours to EDIT the fucking paper. WHILE I, had a fucking family thanksgiving dinner that I had to help prepare for, and YET manage to drive all the way out and meet up for the meeting, only to find out that they rather study and sleep because they’re too tired. Yes, I understand work is hard and you need rest, but REALLY! What kind of communication is there when this is for a FUCKING COMMUNICATIONS CLASS!

    In my years in school and doing group work, this is by far the worst group ever. Hell, last semester I’ve had the worst schedule conflict, and yet, my group mates and I MANAGE to set time aside and meet, even if it was 9 o'clock at night. They were able to communicate with me FINE saying they weren’t able to meet, yet there were still other group mates that manage to meet up.

    I don’t know. This group, for this class, the worst. Communication was horrible. HORRIBLE! I Love the class and the professor, but I just can’t stand my group mates.
