Have To


Now that I have to write (for the OU Course) and I have to programme (for my new job) and I have to do all sorts of other stuff, all the enjoyment I had in doing them seems to have drained away.

I want to do things for the joy of them!
How do I find that again?
Help, please?

Yeah, yeah, I know – get a life – right?

  1. You should draw like Meg did today when she didn’t want to write. I remember that awesome doodle you did a while ago, with all the concentric lines. Otherwise, hopefully you’ll have a better day tomorrow. πŸ™‚

  2. I’m going to offer a small bit of advice, something that has worked for me in the past. I’m a commerce student, and I loved math. Until I didn’t understand it anymore. And slowly, “let’s do math!” turned into “ugh, I have to do math.”
    What I’m trying to get at is, things might seem better if you stop looking at them as chores and start seeing them as things that you enjoy doing. πŸ™‚
