Teen’s Perspective on Projects

by Sam P. | February 3rd, 2012 | Teen Perspective

Whether you really like them or not, projects are frustrating. Me, I typically like them. I actually just finished one in science that was an egg drop project. You had to keep an egg from breaking when it was dropped. It was quite frustrating. So I decided to write about it.
Whether you are a straight A genius, or a student that probably won’t even make it into college, everybody has their breaking point. And whether it is having to write a report on your project, doing the project, or having to ask for help on it — that’s mine — everybody has a point where they just want to lie down and scream and cry, or smash their head into a wall.

You can’t let projects get the better of you; it’s not worth the energy. It doesn’t matter how much you just want to smash the project and start jumping on it, you can’t. All that will do is cause more frustration. And then you will just have to start again from square one, and do everything all over again.

When you’re at the maximum point of frustration, the best thing to do it step back, take a deep breath, and ask for help. It doesn’t matter how much you don’t want to, you need to. When you are frustrated you can’t always see straight. And when you can’t see straight, you will most likely ruin your project in hopes of, what you think is, salvaging it from its depths of ruination. Little do you know, it was already fine before and right now you are just making it worse. And, if you ask for help, the person helping you could give you a better idea or perspective on your project, and help you succeed. And isn’t that what everyone wants to do with their life? Don’t you want to succeed? I sure know I do. So whether it’s science, math, or Spanish, remember that when that huge cloud of frustration blocks your view, you probably need someone to help you find your way.
