Re: Does Magic Last?

I didn't read any of the books until a decade after the first one had come out: in the summer of 2007 I was working in a very boring New Mexico town that normally went to bed at 10 PM. Then, one Friday night in late July, I saw a party two hours after the town's normal bedtime... and didn't realize ...

Re: Summer Quidditch League 2017

I'm looking forward to seeing whatever QB comes up with for SQL! (I really hope to see another Snitch tournament; the last one was ugly for me.)

Re: Cursed Child Movie?

I don't think he's needed; after all, he didn't play baby Harry, so why should he need to play 40 year old Harry? (Especially since we'd need to wait to 2026-2029 for him to be the "right age"). Plus, with a new Harry, we might have a chance to properly match his eye color!

Re: Revival of Quidditch Pickups

Despite the bots acting up last afternoon (to the point that Parseltongue was required to tame them), last afternoon's Quidditch events were a rousing success. We had ten people show up, of which seven (including all four houses and at least one brand new player) actually played in at least one of o...

Re: Revival of Quidditch Pickups

Last evening was a chilly, dark, rainy night (fraught with chilly mist) with Dementors circling the pitch. Despite that, we still had representatives from three of the four houses come out to play: Prof. Arielle Lemoyne Kendra Givens Prof. Tarma Amelia Black Will Lestrange We began with a round of &...

Re: Share your spring moments

Spring's been a bit weird here: February was warm enough that a 90s song by Sophie B. Hawkins could have been played nearly every day ("it felt like springtime on this February morning") and the flowers started thinking it was spring. Then came a Pi Day snowstorm in the middle of March and...

Re: Revival of Quidditch Pickups

Upon reflection, 8 PM HOL may not have been the best time for a weekend pickup match. While 3 houses were represented, we had a fairly low turnout.

Re: Snow Day!

We got 3 inches in my neighborhood which gave me the day off. So I slept in, worked out, and went to a cafe which was listed as having one of the tastiest hot chocolates in Virginia (and it did). Then I caught a great view outside, did a bit of Quidditch, and made it out onto an island 3 or 4 miles ...

Leadership: random thoughts

During my time in HOL, I've had the chance to take on a few roles with strong leadership elements (even if I've never been the "person ultimately in charge"). I've seen all sorts of types of leaders and leadership styles both here in HOL and in real life as well. As such, I pose the follow...

Re: Questions

I was looking at Assignment 2, which the syllabus says is due on March 31 for the spring term (and October 31 for the fall). However, the assignment itself gives a different due date: "Due - Oct. 31/Feb. 28". I assume the March 31 date is the correct one? Otherwise, the first two assignmen...
