I have a history when it comes to group work. All through my school career when we did group work, I would always end up organising everything, I know I am a hard working and organised person but I do not want to be taken advantage of, and I do not want it to seem like I am some tyrannical ruler. We had our first ‘group meeting’ which given that we sit right next to each other, it basically doesn’t stop, we always see what each other are doing anyway. It was decided that the common themes in our research were survival, both physically and emotionally. Immediately this made me start thinking of everything I’ve learned in camps, how to build shelters, how to dress wounds and treat small burns, what I need to survive, what if I started incorporating what I need to survive psychologically?
