Wed 6th March

Today as other OITC’ers led groups of students in boat building and ropes activities (including the blindfolded trapeze), I led a group in various team building exercises.  Included in this were the imfamous “Triplank” and obstacle course.  Though I still did not feel all too confident in my leadership skills, the group’s general optimistic and playful attitude greatly helped ease the stress of the situation (Neil also helped a ton by filling in when I couldn’t remember little aspects here and there).  I’ve led both small and large groups in projects and activities before, so I shouldn’t be getting so nervous, but hopefully practicing this will help me mellow out in these situations.  It was a fun day overall, with an end result of very minimal stress and a nice feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment.
