I only ever learn from traditional novels in the Wintertime.
I have tried studying year round. After all, I prefer books and really do prefer to sit down with a nice novel. But I just can’t do it. I don’t know if it is because it is strenuous to sit still for hours on end when it is nice outside or if it is the fireplace that makes myself and others only want to learn from periodicals in the Wintertime. I recognize it is the fireplace though. There is something nice about resting in front of a fireplace and studying all night a nice book for days on end while the snow falls outside and the wood crackles in the hearth. That is an immersive experience that just can’t be replicated. Trust me; I have tried. One recent warm season I obtained a little fake fireplace from a discount store. It had a fake flame, fake logs of wood, and a real section heating system affixed. I obtained it because I thought that I could easily turn off the heating system area of it and still prefer the fake flames. I was hoping that this would clearly inspire myself and others to learn in the warm season weeks. It didn’t. In fact, the whole fake fireplace just made myself and others mad. The flames moved in a repetitive pattern, it actually didn’t make that crackling sound that I prefer so much, and it had no proper aroma. I ended up giving the thing away. So now I am satisfied to just wait until Wintertime in order to do all of our studying.
