Using free / open source software or (slightly better) proprietary / closed software that you can get for free?

I don't know how to carry on. I wasn't able to finish any thesis this semester or to get any Credit Points otherwise. I feel like under water. There's no motivation to go on. On the other hand I'm still interested in my subject.
Is this modern academia or is it me? Did anyone experience the same difficulties?

Due to a lack of motivation I can't finish my thesis now. I'll wait till I've got a lack of time instead ... (Deadline, here I come again)

(I usually don't follow trends, but I think this one is nice)

I'm a grad student from Hamburg (Germany) and study Systematic Musicology. This includes social, physical, psychological, medical, aesthetic and technical aspects of music. It's annoying when people ask what instrument I play, because that's like underestimating my subjects. I'm also interested into gender/queer studies and other humanities.
I also like cats, anime, diversity ...

There's no difference to other fields like technology or research: There are many qualified female, trans* and non-binary people. Why can't we see them?

Why are there still so few desks with power outlets in the library? Come on, we living in the 21st century!

Hello world. I'm new to this instance ...
