What is up JHS?? It has been far too long. For those of you who do not remember me, I graduated from Johnston back in 2015, though I am sure that you have all been briefed on my historic presence in J-Town.

There are a lot of people who do not like group work, myself being one of them. The majority of group projects, I end up becoming a bossy person, just so we can get the project done or just do the majority of the project by myself. Many students share the same thinking as I do, when it comes to gro...
