I’m a sophomore currently taking online classes at home. I’m a film major so most of the film classes in my university are cancelled. So I had to choose the courses I was not orginally interested in. Now I’m already one month into my study and am feeling extremely lost and depressed. The workload for online courses is much higher compared to in-person classes (more readings, essays, and reading reports). However, after putting all of my efforts in those courses for one month, I suddenly feel very lost today and I feel like I am wasting my time on the subjects I don’t like at all. I think I can benefit much more to do some internships or start a project by myself. The essays and readings are making me feel so depressed and I really wanna have a break to do something I truely want to do. So, I wanna ask: has anyone succeed in taking a break during the middle of a semester? Would you recommend me doing this considering I have already started the semester for a month?
