Our group meeting was a bit harried because we both thought we were working independently until Friday of this week. And although I was not prepared for this development, I am excited to meet someone new, with a great deal of similarities. We are very much of the same demographics and it is nice to be partnered with someone who understands my perspective.
We had two lovely conversations, which delved into our personal and professional experiences, our academic backgrounds and employment history. We exchanged information with the plan to have one formal day to meet, but with frequent, informal check-ins through email and text.
We will work together using GoogleDocs, and we generated several ideas about our project and how to proceed. While I am a bit apprehensive about the level of new technologies used in this class, I am excited to work with my group mate. I think we will get along fabulously.
