How to use on, in and at when talking about places

I need to make a confession.

For many years I used to get the prepositions of place (on/it/at) all wrong.
And every time I tried to learn them, my head would spin and I’d get confused by all the rules.
It’s always goes something like this:
Use AT for x,y z
Use ON for a, b, c
Use IN for w, t, f
Just couldn’t remember it.

Until one day I sat down and tried to make sense of it. Instead of learning the rules, I worked at understanding the system behind it. And surprisingly enough – I figured it out! Much simpler than I thought it would be.
And I’d like to share it with you today.

ON IN AT – Prepositions of time: stop memorizing start visualizing.
