Is the hero going to learn some random, by rote spells?

I was thinking that the weather and the time spells might intrigue him enough, if he were feeling disheartened enough with his regular studies and the prospect of their ever being treated as if he had succeeded in school.

But then, that's slapping a gun up on the mantelpiece. Something has to happen with the spells. Unless I manage to write them as characterization, of how frustrated he's growing. At least, he's going to talk with another character about them.
