So it doesn't help that I'm ill and my room is freezing, but I'm wondering what the point to getting a degree is. I enjoy my subject but I feel like I can learn more, and enjoy it more, with my books at home. But I know if I went home I'd have to get a job and that depresses me too. The idea of working every day in a field that means nothing to me fills me with dread.
I guess I just wish society was different and less about business and money so we could all enjoy our lives more and share resources. it seems everything is paperwork and doing things for the sake of doing things and ticking boxes or targets.
I haven't been moping - I was out and about yesterday despite being ill, but today I have had to admit defeat and centre my life around my bed.
I'm at Cambridge and like the lectures here. I can't imagine feeling better at another university academics wise, even if we do hear a little too much about 'world-renowned experts'.
