Small life update: I’m actually a Slytherin?

Okay, so, don’t hate me, but I had to delete my previous Pottermore on the account of it being “too distracting” for me during my board exams.

So, I went the on the website again recently, to get a new account, with a whole new house, wand, Patronus, and Ilvermorny house. I’d love to share all of them right now but I don’t think it’s as interesting, because I’ve already done a similar thing for a time when I was in Hufflepuff (and that post will need editing lmao)

Rest assured I am never deleting my Pottermore account again. This is my identity and I love it.



How about a posting schedule?

Hello to everyone viewing this blog!

This is a question I’d love for you all to answer. I really like blogging, though I’ve only been doing seriously for about a month or so. I have so much to do at this point in my life that it’s really impractical for me to blog as often as I would like, because I’d be falling behind on a lot of work while I’m lost in the world of words. (Brownie points for that alliteration, please!)

Anyway, I was wondering what you guys thought of a posting schedule. You see, I write whenever I feel inspired. And I obviously can’t force myself to get inspired every Sunday or every Tuesday. Nor can I let go of an idea I get at the wrong moment (for example-when I’m writing a test).

Do you guys think it would be restrictive to limit my posting to a few days of the week? It’s the most practical thing to do but taking that decision would break my heart but I also don’t want to be behind on all my work and aaargh! I mean, I would be devastated because I really look forward to my blogging time.

Are any of you facing the same problem at the moment? What do you do about it? Let me know so we can be upset about it together, and hopefully work out a few solutions to feel better even though we’ve taken this horrible decision?

Also, I know that the best thing for me to do wouldn’t necessarily be the best course of action for someone else to take- of course, a lot of things are are subjective- but I want to know if this is generally considered a good idea. Any thoughts?

Pokémon Go…and why I probably can’t play it.

Warning: Long post ahead.

Aaah! Gotta catch em all! Pokémon!

Being someone who has grown up with Pokémon, I can definitely say that I was extremely, extremely excited when Pokémon Go was announced. A game from an anime I love to watch? Catch these critters in real-time while walking around? Sign me the hell up!  I was convinced that it was going to be a whole lot of fun, albeit the fact that the craze would probably die down after a few days, as it does with a whole lot of Pokémon games.

Sadly, armed robbers had already started using the game as a way to lure players in to traps with the help of the geolocation feature. That would have allowed the robbers to anticipate the location and affirm the isolation of their victims. Added to that, one can add a beacon to a Pokèstop, which would draw more players. Way to be party poopers, guys.

Guess what month it is!

So, it’s July, and I’m sure the people of the United States of America celebrated the fourth of this month with immense pomp and festivity. And that’s all that July’s about, right? The most exciting thing about July is American Independence Day and that brings you ’round to a month of patriotism.

But July is also….(wait for it)….(wait for it)….America’s National Ice Cream Month!

Yes, dà jiā, yes. There is a month for that.

I hope you will enjoy your stay!

“Where’s mum?” I asked my older brother Collin.

“Uh-I don’t know, Ade. I think she’ll be around soon.” he replied.

Well, I wasn’t feeling any better. I hoped that they would soon find a way to rid me of my fatigue. I hadn’t eaten in days. I just didn’t feel like it. I wanted to know if they had found something out. I prayed it wasn’t something crazy, that I would get better soon.
