During my school years, I was always a perfectionist and
a workaholic. Sure, that meant straight As in all subjects... but it also meant that I had no time for hobbies or extra-curricular activities. If I knew then what I know now, I would have done things a bit differently.
With that in mind, let's tackle this week's discussion!• Free-time at Hogwarts:CLUBS:
→ If there was a Dueling Club
, I would probably be involved in it, as it would help me improve in both Charms and
Defense Against the Dark Arts.
→ I love
stargazing! Astronomy Club
with Professor Sinistra? See you next Wednesday at 9:30 pm!
→ I believe that Charms would be one of my favorite electives, if not my absolute favorite. Therefore, I'd definitely join the Charms Club
, especially if it taught spells not learned in class!
→ Ancient Runes would probably be my favorite elective, since it's the closest thing to Foreign Languages that they taught at Hogwarts. As such, I'd probably join the Hogwarts Ancient Runes Club (H. A. R. C.)
→ In one of the Harry Potter films, we see a poster for the Magical Creatures Club
, which promised to show students more than 40 creatures a month
. That's a lot
of creatures! Count me in!
→ I really enjoy singing, so sign me up for the Hogwarts Choir
→ In my 5th and 7th years I would probably be involved in all sorts of homework/study groups
to better prepare for the O.W.L.S. and N.E.W.T.S., respectively.
→ Hogwarts Dance Academy
. What do you mean that isn't a real
Hogwarts club? Professor Flores will hear about this!HOBBIES & INTERESTS:
! You'd never get me out of the Hogwarts Library. Ever.
All those books with moving pictures, and wizarding publications... Additionally, I wouldn't let a day go by without reading the Daily Prophet
. Yes, even Rita Skeeter's articles, just so I could moan about them!
→ Wizard photography
. I am really into photography in real life and, seeing as photography is a lot more interesting in the wizarding world, I'd probably be the next Colin Creevey. Say cheese!
. This is another of my real life hobbies, which could only be more interesting in the magical word... Though probably not as relaxing! *Cringes at the thought of Mandrake screams*
→ I enjoy sewing quite a lot in real life. Even thought it's not quite the same thing, knitting
is known to be a pretty popular hobby among witches and wizards. If I had gone to Hogwarts, I probably would have gotten into it, instead of sewing. After all, the end result is the same: owning a cute garment that you made yourself!
→ I absolutely love
board games, but I don't think they are very popular with wizards. Aside from wizard chess
, that is! Even though I'm not the best chess player in real life, I'd probably be really into wizard chess, for lack of other games of the sort.
→ Exploding Snap
to kill time in the Common Room? Yes, please!
→ Seeing as collecting Wizard Cards
was all the rage, I'd probably jump on the bandwagon too.
→ Talking. With. The. Portraits.
Seriously! I don't understand why students aren't seen talking to the portraits more often! They have been at Hogwarts forever
, and probably know all its secrets
→ Doing everything in my power to become a Prefect
, and eventually a Head Girl
. And then probably stressing out over all the extra responsibilities!!THINGS I'D PROBABLY AVOID:
. I've never been one for group sports. I'm sure I'd cheer for my House Team as much as the next Ravenclaw, but that would be the end of my involvement with the favorite sport of the wizarding world.
→ Quidditch related clubs
, such as the Chudley Cannons Fan Club
and the Hans Fan Club
. Again, I barely follow sports in real life, and I can't imagine that it would be any different in the wizarding world.
→ Art Club for Ravenclaw.
Ok, I'm reaching here, but bear with me. We know
there was an Art Club for Gryffindor
, so I'm assuming
other Houses had them as well? That being said, I wouldn't join, simply because I can't force myself to make art or be creative on cue. I can only draw/paint/write when inspiration strikes.
→ Slugs and Bugs Club
? Ermm... I think I'll pass.
→ Rat Race Club
. As much as I think rats are adorable, I don't think I'd be interested in seeing them race.
. I have terrible
aim and I hear that the gobstones spit a putrid liquid at the players when they lose a point? YUCK!• Free-time at HOL:HOLLERS;
→ One of my goals for this year is to earn 200+ hoots
→ I really want to give it my all in the Book Bingo
→ I also plan to participate in the Monthly Book Discussions
, as well as to submit to the Monthly Writing Prompts
→ I plan to participate in at least one activity in each Common Room
, aside from Off to School (because I've already done that!)
→ I hope to be especially active in the Common Rooms which are the least active
.LIBRARY & ART DEPARTMENT:
→ I would like to submit at least one of my creations
to either one of these. NEWSPAPERS:
→ I have already submitted
for the next issue of Alte
, the Ravenclaw Newspaper.
→ I plan to make at least one submission to each of the newspapers
→ I'd love to witness how Quidditch works here at HOL. Who knows? Maybe it's the sport for me after all
... (I like trivias!)SCHOOL-WIDE EVENTS:
→ I've been hearing much about these, and I'm interested in possibly becoming involved
once I know more about them. Apparently, Off to School is one of them, so I already have! Hehe!HOL CHAT
→ One of my goals for this year is to make at least one good friend, and HOL's chat channel is the perfect place for that. ♥
... Did I leave anything out?
