I was expecting better responses than this, no offense. It's just so close to the end of the semester and I'm finding myself getting nothing done. Not improving in any way. It usually feels different but idk why I can't get anything done. Just have no motivation.

Imagine yourself working at McDonald's with no college education there is your motivation to do well.

Motivation comes from the self. If you want to learn a solid lesson from drum corps, here it goes:

"Figure it out."

my response may have seemed childish, but it really is my motivation. i dont care about how well i do; if someone is better than me, i want to be better than them.

its the competition that drives me.

theres this one girl in my algebra class that makes mostly the same grades as me. if they make a 105 on a test and i make a 104, i get mad.

other variations:

use your skills
try harder
I play and teach music (sometimes even band music!)

I work in music tech and licensing.

Music is an art and positive energy.

My mom told me If my grades don't stay up, I can't try out for drum corps next year. That alone is my motivation

That's also what drives me a lot too. There was this freshman in French 1 last year that always got higher than me on tests. Since I was older, it made me feel inferior and pathetic even though we both ended up with an A in the class.

Competition. I'm music ed and it's a tough field. Teaching is a dream job for me and I want to be good at it, along with feeling confident about getting a job.
