hey this is my first time making a thread in the asylum.... lately i just seem to be unmotivated to do anything. by that i mean, i don't feel like going to the gym anymore, i don't want to study the stuff i should be studying, and even when i'm doing something i normally consider "fun" it just doesn't seem like fun anymore. its all just becoming so mundane and less fun with each time. take for example, i want to go to brazil, so i've been studying portuguese for a while, and now lately....i just don't feel like studying it. as well as i'm studying to take CLEP exams this fall, on two subjects that interest me (western civ, & marketing) but again, nothing i do/tell myself makes me want to bother with it. even work is no fun, and i sort of have an extremely easy/fun job. i help run events for high school/college students in my area. and even then, its no fun. i find myself asking, what's the point anymore? why do i have to worry about a stupid western civ class? how is it ever going to help? and for another thing my social circle has diminished greatly, i'm home for the summer outside of the US so the likelyhood of seeing any of my fraternity brothers or friends from college is extremely small. is this normal? am i just jaded from everything right now? any advice as to how to deal with it/get around these feelings?
