I do not like school I never have because we you don't have freedom to do whatever and the work is pretty annoying. This story is about when I had to do a project for a group but I did not finish it so it made my group and family members feel disappointed when people are disappointed in me I feel like I could have done better than I did. When I feel like that I could have done better I would usually try harder to do well.

One day we were in social studies class and the some of the other kids were able to pick their groups because they were here the day before. I was not so I was put into a group. The group I was put in was pretty good I had a little bit of work done for that group I felt comfortable with those people but it didn't last. They had to present and I didn't have enough work to present so my teacher put me in a new group. The new group I was put in was good but I didn't really know what to do.

I don't usually care if I do my school work but when it affects my group I feel kind of bad that I can't help out with anything. I didn't know what to say when we're presenting or if I even should. Someone in the group asked me before we had to present, “Jon, what are you going to say?”

I responded “I don't know” Even though it bothered them there wasn't much we could do at that point. So we just presented anyway and my group did what they had done and I just watched. I knew because I didn’t have any work ready my grade was not going to be good. I definitely knew my mom was not going to be happy. My mom has always told me that I have to want to try to do what I need to do.

I got home and I had to tell my mom about what has happened, I told her “I didn't get the work done for my social studies assignment” She responded with “Well only you can want to succeed.” I didn't say anything back. I felt agitated I don't like when I disappoint my mom because she always says that I don't try at anything.

When I have to do work I attempt it sometimes but when I need to do something for a group I try to do what I need to do. With this scenario I did not get my work done and it had a negative effect on my group. In result I was unable to present and my group was unhappy with me along with my mom. From now on I try to do my assignments and make my mom proud.
