It’s inevitable: if you’re a student in any sort of literature class, you’re going to be assigned something to read eventually. As someone who loves to read, you wouldn’t think I would mind this. But for some reason whenever a book is assigned to me it instantly becomes less appealing.
This frustrates me to no end.
Even if I was looking forward to reading a book beforehand, if it is assigned to me I will immediately lose some of my interest in it. I often regain it once I get through a good portion of it, but until that point it’s like trudging through sludge- really difficult and just plain unpleasant.
Maybe it’s my inner rebel finally showing its true colors. Or perhaps its simply the fact that I automatically associate homework as something terrible.
Does anyone else struggle with this? I’d love to know that I’m not alone!
