What do you do when your unmotivated?
try to asses why i am unmotivated. usually it's because i'm trying to do something i only think i care about, rather than something i truly care about. if i absolutely need to do the thing im unmotivated to do, i try to find if there's a way i can satisfy the need in a way that is interesting
The problem is that I'm unmotivated to study for (graduation) exams for a major I no longer care about. I was thinking of taking a day or two off and truly unwind. Not sure if that would actually help.
What major are you uninterested in? I had a giant surge of negative motivation near graduation too.

Linguistics. It's not the major itself, but rather the department's approach. Very dry and all you do is memorize things. I took a Teaching Company Great Course on linguistics which kept me going for another year (that was last year.) The department is full of shit that my End of Study research was in Film Studies because some professors had fewer students than others.
That seems like an interesting major. What do you hope to do with it after graduation? Also, best advice may just be to push through, like the end of a long race, dig deep and bear it.
