have you seen my motivation?

I feel like I’m living in one of those “have you seen my child” advertisements that I get in the mail from time to time. I’m always sorry and sad that someone’s child is missing, and I sincerely wish I knew where they were. And it’s the same case with my motivation. I’m really sorry and sad that my motivation is missing. I wish I knew where it was.

We’ve had accounting quizzes two Wednesdays in a row so far, and I can’t find the motivation I need to study…I need desperately to find it. Perhaps I will take out a milk carton advertisement. (On a side note, there’s a children’s book called “The Face on the Milk Carton” by someone…I don’t remember the author’s name). 

Winter break was probably too long, I fell into patterns of sloth. I did go to the gym every day, but the only studying I did there was to read magazines as I did cardio and watch people around me as I lifted weights. I need to get back into the groove again. It might have something to do with grades from last semester. At UMD, “+/-” grades are awarded, but don’t factor into your GPA calculation. So you might receive a B+ and a B-, but it’s weighted the same way as a B. I worked pretty hard last semester in the hopes of getting As, but found a B+ or two instead…and I might as well have just gotten a B. That “+” is just a tease. It just tells me I was close, but not close enough…a taunting sort of flirtation.

I’d better go off and find my motivation now.
