Right now I'm doing our project in our subject but the problem is I'm the only one who's making it, and my classmate were grouped by friend so I'm a leftout also one of my classmate so that means we're only two, while they're 5 or more and we're 4 group including us pair. The problem is my partner didn't help me and also I'm doing my thesis, and another project so too sum it up I'm doing all three by myself.... I really need some advice on how to handle things I'm almost at my limit... ?(????)

Well i too had gone through this sort of situation before. When i was the leader of my group i made it a point to distribute the work or project among my group members so that none of them are left out free to move here and there and that every individual can contribute to the project equally. This will reduce the work pressure on you.

but my problem is, I don't have groupmates and so I'm a 1 man team. I can't contact my partner for almost a week and I also said it to my proff. she said to me that, she don't care if I still have my groupmates or not as long as you can finish your work then there's no worry about. sigh*

Usually in this situation,I will write a detailed report to my boss and explain to him what I have to do and what kinds of problem I will face,and get his support,at least, get his understanding. By the way,Why my reputation is just 2?I just find out my reputation in mylot and it is just has 2 score,this really let me down cause I am such a good guy...

Wow that's a tough one. Well, if it seems like you're going to have to do things on your own might as well go on your own when you turn in the project. Why don't you, for the last time, email or text your partner, or whatever that can be proven later on that you initiate the contact tat if he/she will not help out as a project partner should, you will just go and submit the project by yourself alone. If it remains unacknowledged for a day or two, then continue working on your project the way you want it. It will somehow help ease your stress when your state of mind isn't wandering about other people who should be doing this or that, because you only have yourself to mind and you have full command on how to proceed with the project. Stress is part of our lives, whether we're in school or work, or home. We can't dodge the factors fueling this but we can surely live thru it without losing it. :)
