june 9, 2017 - what’s the biggest thing you learned last semester?
#ssn june challenge: week 1, day 4
i think the biggest thing that i learned this past semester was learning how to really do research and how to work with unfamiliar people. in my world music class, we were assigned a semester-long research project (you can read a little more about it here, and special thanks to my good friend @jinstudies for being part of it!), working together with randomly selected people in the class. sifting through a myriad of readings, asking the right questions, and formulating a truly solid thesis was difficult and stressful. i was fortunate enough that my teammates and i got along very well and we were successful in the end (we got an A on our final paper!), but i know that in the real-world workplace, you don’t always get to choose who you want to work with, and you won’t always get to be that lucky. you encounter all kinds of obstacles, and you may disagree on things every now and then, but you learn to deal with what you’ve got, compromise, and cooperate with others while kindly respecting one another. it may even seem daunting at first, but you will soon see yourself bloom and grow!
