Re: How Many Books Do You Read Per Year

I used to be able to read upwards of 50 or more books a year, including the books I had to read for school otherwise I never would have gotten that high. I've always had a ridiculously busy schedule. Now, I'm lucky if I get 30. This year I've read nearly that, and I'm hoping to get to at least 40.

Re: Book Reading Challenges

The Reading Quest was a lot of fun! The person running it said she would run another similar one when she had the time, so I look forward to it. If anyone has another reading challenge coming up that they would like to share, please do! It looks like there are a few of us who enjoy them! Of course w...

Re: No! Don't kill them! (Character you cried over most)

Hanna, you bring up such a good point about Sirius and Harry. Even though Sirius is his godfather, he really is family to him. I think what Harry doesn't realize at the time is that he really has a lot of family, the Weasley's, his friends, Professor Mcgonagall, Hagrid. There are so many others, but...

Re: Week 4-Awesome Awards

I have two awards on HOL that I want to earn more than anything, and they're both Roost Awards. One of them was an award that I decided in my first year that I wanted to claim, if only to beat Kyrie on points, and that's the Ravenclaw of the Year Award which is given to the Ravenclaw student that re...

Re: Week 4-Pets

I have had four pets total at Hogwarts, two cats and two owls. At some point my first cat, Mr. Mistoffelees, ran into trouble in the greenhouse. He ate something he shouldn't have and got very sick. It turned him into a rabid sort of beast, and before I knew it, the cat I had had for nearly four yea...

Re: September – Story

My first day of school this year was terrifying, or at least I thought it was going to be. I was up late worrying about it and happened to not get a lot of sleep. It had been over a year since I had been back to the school, so I was rightfully nervous, I think. However, it ended up turning out well....

Re: September - Photography

I'm not feeling creative right now, so this is a photo I took the other day for my instagram. Can't study without food, and I use notebooks for everything. Those are only my notebooks for bio. (Yes I use a wide ruled composition book. Don't judge.) https://s26.postimg.org/su3yvs5ix/September_Photogr...

Re: Week 3-Study Spaces

So I took the idea from Sachiko on using the Sims, however I only have the Sims 2 so my study space isn't as elaborate as hers is. I tried to make it as airy as possible because I like the feeling that I'm among the clouds. I also love being around books, so I included a lot of bookshelves, even som...

Re: Week 3-Extra, extra!

I suppose this is some self-promotion for my hopefully up and coming column on vegan eats (focusing on raw vegan recipes). This is only one of my amazing dishes that you may or may not see at some point, but we definitely need more articles and columns of delicious food. And did I forget to mention,...

Re: Week 3-Filling Your Free Time

At Hogwarts, I would probably spend most of my time in the common room curled up with a book or in the library studying. I may even go up to the astronomy tower and just lie down and look at the stars, that is, before curfew hit. I wouldn't want to be caught out of bed. I also think I may spend a lo...

Re: Vegans/Vegetarians Unite!

Hanna, it's nice to know of someone else that has issues with food. I got sick a while back and was in the hospital for a time and while I was there, they didn't have the stuff to cater to a raw diet, so I ended up having to eat just regular vegan foods during that time period. We found out that I c...

No! That photo was not needed. Major feels going on right now. Why did you do this to me? Talking about it is one thing, but when you post a photo like that...I can't even right now. :( But truthfully, it wasn't. Again, I see the plot point behind it now, it opened up a doorway to death for Harry an...

Re: No! Don't kill them! (Character you cried over most)

Oh my goodness! I agree with the unexpected part about Fred and Hedwig. I think with Hedwig I may have actually screamed. I forgot that she was in a cage in the book. I guess I preferred the movie version as well where she was flying free and defending him and that's what my brain remembered. Fred c...

No! Don't kill them! (Character you cried over most)

Throughout the Harry Potter books, there were a lot of character deaths, especially in the end with the Battle of Hogwarts. Quite a few of them hit me really hard, the first of course being Dumbledore. However, I was shocked to find that he was not the character I cried over the most. I was recently...
