Today I am back at Uni for the semester.
I find that at the beginning of the semester with no clear goal I am working towards (assessments not announced yet, no exams any time soon) it is difficult to get into the swing of studying.
I need a problem that I am solving to be able to start working. I need a goal. Otherwise I feel aimless and the time feels wasted and the effort feels half hearted.
I think this applies to more than just my university work.
