Being back home and working the 9 to 5 has completely destroyed my motivation to do anything else. I get home from work being so tired and exhausted and I end up doing nothing. This must be what it feels like to be an adult, to have a fulltime job, to wake up early in the morning and come home feeling exhausted, and I have to say I hate it. I hate living like this, going to a job in an office and sitting in front of a computer all day.
I have lost my motivation to do all the things I wanted to do this summer, for starters to do most of my reading for my dissertation plus read the novels needed for my first semester modules. I am so far away from achieving these goals that I don’t even know where I would start. There’s also the pile of books on my desk, both French and English that I wanted to read this summer. To improve my friend and English vocabulary, and also for pleasure.
I feel like this summer has gone on so fast. I’ve been home for two months and all I remember doing is working, nothing else. I have decided to get my motivation back. To do more than just work, to remember all the things I wanted to do and start doing them. This is why I’ve started buying some of my books for next year on amazon. And I’ve also started reading on the tube to work, and after work, I now go straight to the library to so some dissertation research for an hour. I can’t wait for the feeling of motivation to return in order all the things I wanted to do. Instead I need to get them done and the motivation will follow.
August here I come.
