Is there something wrong with the study spaces at CBS or am I just losing interest?

Monday morning, 10 o’clock to be exact, while sitting on the second floor at Solbjerg Plads and trying to concentrate on my books, I find myself being distracted by the smallest things around me. I wonder if there is something wrong with the view or is it just me?

At CBS, especially at Solbjerg Plads, one of my favorite places to study has always been the second floor next to the window. This is where I normally feel that I can concentrate. Looking at the view helps me feel at peace. However, lately I have been experiencing a few challenges with concentration during my study time. Am I losing interest in my studies or is there really something wrong with the study environment?

Looking internally, I think I am losing a bit of interest in my subjects this semester; maybe due to the fact that I am almost at the finish line and I’m at the end of my patience. Hence my excuses about the place by the window at Solbjerg Plads. It’s an indication of my underlying emotions about this semester.

Is it a smart move to avoid my books already at the beginning of the semester? I don’t think so. Which is why I must remember why I started this program and where I am going with it. Although it is quite common to feel like this, dwelling on those emotions are not going to be beneficial by the end of the semester.

Here’s a question for you: How do you feel about this new semester?

Often one must ‘suck it up’ and fight through a ‘boring’ semester in order to reach the finish line. Unfortunately, this is what we all have to go through. Days are long, dry and sometimes stressful, but slacking during the semester due to boring subjects is not going to make me pass. I must AT LEAST pass! Otherwise, I will be forced to go through another boring and unpleasant semester, because of my poor choices that were based on temporary emotions.

    Layoffs break the crucial trust between organisation and employee

    CBS is laying off a number of employees soon, which will affect our university in different ways. When employees are fired without having done anything wrong, it shatters the trust between the organisation and employees, while also taking a toll on productivity, according to a CBS expert. Layoffs also affect the ‘survivors’, who are forced to adapt to a changed workload and the loss of cherished colleagues.
