Where's my motivation?

Today is supposed to be a pretty long day for me and I can't get motivated enough to do anything. I've been up about a half hour or so and the only thing I've really accomplished is I've gotten dressed. I'm moving out of my apartment today so I can go home for the summer. School is over, so it's time for me to pack everything up, put it in boxes and go home. It's just I hate doing this every year, as it does get old after awhile and really don't want to do this all over again when August comes and I move in again. How do you motivate yourself? I usually just get up and start going even though I'm really not into doing it. It's usually the only way I can get anything done, regardless if I want to do it or not. Does music work to motivate you or do you do something completely different?

I hate packing and moving as much as everyone and to get motivated I do turn on my favorite music loudly as I can and then start packing as the music starts to flow about in the air it goes a long way in helping me stay motivated long enough to get it done. Or you could always enlist the help of a few friends to help in the packing and then maybe help them pack as well.

Sometimes we bored to do the same things. But I think this way: the more quickly I do this the more quickly I get out of this. And it work for me lol. Do what you need to do quickly and you will feel good after that. good luck
