I feeling a bit paranoid... it is as if I am fighting against someone who does not want me to win. I find it sad that it is then where i try to perform at my best. I know that the objective of an opponent but school was never meant to be like this... was it?

For example, for a school project i formed a group with Sotho speaking people and when we meet the dialect chances to Sotho and i am left out of the loop. I never liked group project because i suck at this social game... yeah life is really becoming like "Survivor". My inability to socialise has led me to struggle to find group mates for group project.
I have to take the blame, as i think it is up to me to reach out if i do not come out of my shell i tend to suffer in the end.

back to the group with the Sotho's well being a lazy person I chose to take the least responsibility in the group and opt to do the planning

Planning is not as hard as it sounds.. all planning can be cooked just list whatever has been done on a timeline, and lie as to when the undone work will be completed.
taking a laissez faire approach would backfire. Because their standards are quite low I too was subjected to their low marks... and you can tell on some1s face when they do not want to win.

Oh the paranoia part of the story... because i do not attend all group meetings and i do the least work i felt a little tension when i would pitch... and now they just ask for the work i did for them to keep. I think they are planning to kick me out. hence collecting all my work so they would not have something to present, as none of the can effectively use planning software. The last report they handed in gave us a below par score... and the one they were about to submit what looked below par a mile away report. Now I'm left burning the midnight oil tryna improve the document.
All my experience in the schooling system has taught me that presentation is key to all. If it looks good it probably is good.

The scene above was when Megamind :'D met Hal, in their last battle quote below
Megamind: You dare challenge Megamind?!
Titan: This town isn't big enough for two supervillains!
Megamind: Oh, you're a villain all right! Just not a SUPER one!
Titan: Oh yeah? What's the difference?
[Cue fantastic over-the-top lightshow]

But you do need some content too so i feel like I'm doing all the work.. :'(

Okay... Today not good

Obviously what could I have expected I allowed laziness to creep in, I dropped the ball. It's good I found the problem early, hopefully I can nip it in the bud (first time using that expression I've heard it so many times though)

Well you must be wondering "What am I on about" got more Mid-term results and they are not going my way...

Having shared academic hustle stories with a good friend a few weeks back I feel inspired to go all out, No sleep again today... Yesterday I had no sleep but was not very productive... Tonight I grab the bull by the balls

On an unrelated matter I have two articles in the pipes
