I haven’t posted anything here for a long time, but autumn is here and I feel as though I am waking up from a sort of heaviness that befell me in summer.
Now that it has finally gotten cooler, I feel like I can think again. During the last few months, it was so hot here in Austria, and especially in my apartment ( I have no air-conditioning), that I felt sluggish and unable to start anything new or think more deeply about my life. I don’t enjoy the current colder weather (yet) but I am so glad that I can think again. I have started reading much more, reading about and trying out methods of learning new things. This is important to me because I have always been curious and wanted to acquire knowledge, but never knew how to study and learn new things properly. On the contrary, I easily forget everything that I read, which is frustrating and eventually makes reading non-fiction books, although I do enjoy them, a waste of time. So my big project for now is to learn the best ways of learning and remembering new things, in a way that is efficient and enjoyable. I am really excited about it and I feel like it’s the right way forward for me.
How about you? How do you feel about this new season? What are you going to do with it and with the new spirit it brings?
