    Every personality test I've ever taken,

    everyone I've ever met.....they usually say the same thing. I'm disorganized and am usually late, and I can never meet deadlines. It is so incredibly hard for me to focus and get my work done. It's junior year of high school, and I have so much work, and I know it's so important...

    I am an architecture student, in the last year of the bachelor program. Lately I have been feeling so depressed to the point that I have no drive or motivation to produce any work. I feel so let down and discouraged, isolated and helpless, uninspired and dried out. I don't feel...

    Everything Seems A Lot Of Effort...

    Today I feel particularly bad, so this wont be very long. I just never feel like doing anything. I never leave my house or get up before 12 because there is nothing worth getting up for.

    Life Is Meaningless

    Life is a blank canvas. We paint our own meanings. But I don't even feel like touching the paint brush.

    As my experiences accumulate

    and my understanding of life grows, my motivation escapes me. Not to be misinterpreted as lazy, as it is not the lack of action that plagues me, but the lack of decision. I, like many, understand that the range of potential for any experience is dictated by countless...

    Everything's draining the life out of me. Soooo much work, so many complications, my body is exhausting itself trying to fight off every piece of **** that flies at it, and my mind is trying to process every bit of work that is left to do. Yet with so much still left to do, I'm...

    I always find these fleeting moments of

    inspiration, where I feel that the world is so vast and I can literally do anything I want if I put my mind to it. It's a great feeling, however, this feeling never lasts. I wish it would last.

    I Am My Own Enemy

    As the years went by, I started to notice that good things don't always happen to me. Then I realized that it wasn't "the universe." It was me. All this time, I was what got in my way of achieving things that I want. I don't often do things that are good for me (like exercising...

    It's driving me crazy.

    I wish I could get my head around this awful lack of will I've had for several months now. DAMN ME TO HELL. Someone just needs to give me a good telling off, no?

    I stay at home, no job,

    no social life (besides 3 strained friendships) I'm married but there's not much between us lately. I have no motivation to do anything! I'm always tired and drinking coffee. Life is such a bore. Sometimes I feel like I'm just waiting for it to end. I envy deathly old people.

    These few days, I've been feeling out of sorts.

    I had a period (lasting for close to a year) of a real lack of motivation last year, and since then I'm much better, but I still have such episodes. I look up self help websites, quotes, anything that might open my heart up. I talked to a friend, but it only helped for a day. I...

    Motivation for me comes in very,

    very short bursts that are few and far apart. This messes up my hope for a music-based future, a thinner future, and an outgoing future. It's often what makes me upset.

    Serious Lack

    Unless there's something to made of it, I really can be sooo unmotivated. I just won't do whatever it is that I'm lacking motivation in.
