Groups Suck

Sometimes The Curtis should just stick to his gut feeling about things.
About a week ago I was given an assignment and given the option to be independant or be in a group. I selected in my mind to be independant, but everyone else paired up. The instructor (Betsy) made the suggestion that I join “the Guys”. I hesitated to accept, but found myself crushed by the pressure of instructor suggestion and internal non-resistance.
The group situation is making me so stressed out, no one is communicating with me and I don’t know what to do with these people. I feel like I have to organize everything for them to get done. I feel like I would have had to do less work if I would have been by myself.
