Anything is Possible
Does anybody actually like studying? I sometimes tell people that I do, but it's not completely true. I enjoy: Learning, feeling efficient and accomplished, channeling my inner Rory Gilmore. But I would much rather be laying on the grass, watching either the clouds or the stars go by, listening to The Shins and channeling my inner Manic Pixie Dream Girl than working through 200 pages of Aristotle.
Anyhow, there is always stuff you can do to make unenjoyable things very enjoyable. Like listening to a podcast whilst driving through traffic or watching TV to divert your attention from the slowness of time on a treadmill.
Can studying be made fun? With the right music, eats&drinks, incense or aromatic candles, maybe. With the right stationery, even Aristotle can be something to look forward to.
But in the end, you just have to push through it. Breathe in and breathe out. Know that nothing good in life comes for free.
