Favorite Characters in Fantastic Beasts

I had the privilege of getting to go to LeakyCon this year and sit in three panels with Dan Fogler, Jacob Kawolski and Alison Sudol, Queenie Goldstein. Two of them were solo panels and the other was a panel that included both of them titled Doughnuts and Strudel, and it was amazing. When I first saw...

Re: Where do you find your Energy?

Meditation and yoga are my go to relaxation techniques when I need to re-energize after a long week or even a tiring day. I spend a lot of mental energy every day just trying to keep myself appearing normal that most of the time when I get home, not only am I wide awake because my mind is on super a...

Re: So, What Are You Taking?

I had a really hard time picking out classes this year that fit within the scope of what I'm capable of doing for max points since too many long writing or research options are difficult for me. (I almost didn't make it though OWLS last year because of that, but yay, I finished them). I finally deci...

Harry Potter Gear and Magical Meets!

I know there is already a topic on Harry Potter merch, but this is more on gear and carrying gear with you or wearing it out places like when you go to school or work. Some people are absolutely into the cosplay or Harry Potter everywhere thing, and I'm starting to get that way myself after experien...

When the Universe is Made Up of Music

I recently read a book called The Violinist's Thumb by Sam Kean and in it, he describes the makeup of DNA which everyone who has made it through high school biology is familiar with. Something that I have heard about before but never really looked into is scientists composing DNA melodies by transla...

Re: Inspirational Literary Characters

I finished Destined another House of Night novel by P.C and Kristen Cast recently, and there is a new character that has been introduced that I find inspiring in a way. Aurox comes into the picture as a tool of Neferet, a gift she says came from Nyx but really she received from the White Bull with a...

Re: Getting to Know You

As a follow up to my above post, I also read The Violinist's Thumb by Sam Kean. Perhaps this is an even better book to understand more about me. As the last one focused on the periodic table of elements, this one focuses on genetics and specifically our DNA. Once again, Kean goes through explaining ...

Re: Presenting Author – Mark Twain

I also recently read The Adventure's of Tom Sawyer . I grabbed the copy my library had, and it's a newer version written specifically for younger readers while still not abridging anything. In other words, the language that Maxim was discussing has been taken out. I was aware of such things before s...

Re: Inspirational Literary Characters

This may be a strange post for some as the novel Before the Storm by Christie Golden is based off of a MMORPG called World of Warcraft. However, I still consider the characters literary as they are written into 18 novels, at least 2 novellas that I know of, and of course comics. I have read many of ...

LeakyCon 2018

I was so happy this year to be able to attend LeakyCon 2018. I got back home late last night after an incredible weekend of Harry Potter greatness and getting to see some awesome Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts cast members! Alison Sudol and Dan Fogler were there and they were incredible together ...

Re: Giving a book another chance

I keep coming back to the House of Night series and while I have been disappointed with the last few books I read, Dragon's Oath , a House of Night novella set between Awakened and Destined was quite good. I was intrigued to learn more about Anastasia's and Dragon's relationship and honestly with th...

Re: Playing Boardgames Online

I also play online board games from time to time. Chess is a favorite as it requires me to develop strategy which keeps my brain happy. I also play checkers and monopoly, but the latter is rare. I do like playing against bots in order to give myself time to develop strategies, but playing against re...

Re: Getting to Know You

In order to understand my love for science, one should read The Disappearing Spoon by Sam Kean. I am in awe with this book which is a non-fictional account of all the elements on the periodic table and their history. There are fascinating stories that are told, some I had heard and others that were ...
