What sort of profession in the wizarding world would you choose and why? I would have to say, a Teacher -- at Hogwarts or somewhere such as inside the Ministry or overseas. I love giving people knowledge that I have and learning from then in return.
If you could teach one class at Hogwarts, what would it be and why? Well, it's a bit of a toss up between Flying and History of Magic. History can be an incredibly boring subject sometimes, but if the teacher's enthusiastic about it and makes the class that little bit more enjoyable, then the lesson isn't so bad and doesn't seem like an eternity. Flying would be fun to teach, although going by Harry's first one, accidents seem to happen a lot, and I'm not very skilled at working under a lot of pressure. Okay then, History of Magic with a bit more spice in the lessons ;)
This year, The TriWizard Tournament is being held once again and you're of age. Do you put your name in the Goblet? Why or why not? No way! As I said before, I can't work under pressure, and performing death-defying tasks in front of my peers, foreign schools and the Minister for Magic is not my idea of "stress-free". I'd sit on the sidelines, watch and cheer on my champion.
If you could choose your animagus form, what would it be and why? Most likely a fox. I've always admired foxes for their elegance and mystery shrouding them (or that's what I feel when I see one) and their ability to sneak around would be handy in certain situations. Of course, if you go anywhere near a chicken coop, you get shot at. Ah well.
What HP character do you identify with most and why? I know it's a cliche, but Hermione. She's thrown in the deep-end in the forst book by going to a new school where she knows nobody and in a world she knew nothing about until recently. She finally settles in and makes herself some friends and soon becomes firm buddies with them. I can identify with her on this level because I've recently moved to a new country and knew nothing about the culture or the land before I came. She's also book-ish and nerdy at times but can dress up and go to a dance if she needs to :D
What would you see if you looked into the Mirror of Erised? I'd see myself back in Australia -- where I was born -- with my friends and family. I want to see them all again so very, very much and I don't think anything such as World Peace or Family Unity or anything else I'll never achieve can come higher than that.
If you won a million dollars, how would you spend it? He he. I'd pay off my debts first of all. I owe some money to family members, so I'd pay that back with a bit extra to say thanks for everything they've done. I'd then put some aside for my trips to Japan next year and Paris the year after that with the school. Anything left over goes straight into the bank where I earn intrest on it :D
What was your ideal job as a kid? Has that changed? What is your ideal job now? Well, when I was about three I wanted to be a princess (but going on what happenned to Princess Mary of Denmark, nothing's impossible!) I've always wanted to have something to do with travel or languages and I've only recently decided that I want to be an air hostess, combining both my love of languages and travel.
If you were able to invent one spell, potion, or charm, what would it do, what would you use it for or how would you use it, and what would you call it? A potion to call back information for exams and such (even though it would be banned, I'm sure!) and I'd call it Ricordenir (a fusion of the Italian and French verbs, to remember).
If you were to face a boggart, what would it turn into? And what does it turn into when you throw the counter-spell, Riddikulus? An evil looking Doctor with a needle and scalpel in his hand saying something like, "this won't hurt a bit". Then Riddikulus would make the needles and scalpels jump out of his hands and chase him around the room.
What do you look for in a friend? Loyalty and trust. I've known people who can betray both and nothing cuts as deeply as that. They'd also have to be willing to be on the receiving end of some of my explosions after I bottle up too many emotions.
What trait most annoys you about other people? Prejudice, mostly. I couldn't stand Elizabeth or Mr Darcy until about half-way through the book! Even though we all have our own little stereyotypes that we like to give to people, it annoys me that some people can dislike a person simply based on what they think before they even know them. For example, just becuase I'm Australian does not mean I have a thick 'stone-the-crows' accent, knew Steve Irwin personally or think the stolen generation was the right idea.
What do you think are your top five abilities or qualities? 1. Creative: I love to make and draw things. Especially on the computer - I love fiddling in Photoshop. 2. Bookish: I adore books and literature so much I taught myself to read before school! There's nothing better than sitting down beside a fire with the cat or dog beside you and a damn good book to read. 3. Resourceful: I can make something out of most situations by looking for something else to do. This especially helps on snow-days. 4. Patient: I'm (mostly) able to listen to people about anything they wish to talk about for hours. 5. Yay! Last one. Umm. Musical: I adore music and many genres of songs. To be able to sit at a piano and just play a tune to relax or work out your stress is great therapy :D
What do you think are your top five weaknesses or worst qualities? 1. Panick under pressure: Urgh. I hate working in stressful situations, 'cause I'll always mess something up. 2. Bad temper at times: If something annoys me constantly, I don't do anything for a while, but then I explode and take it out on whoever's near. 3. Narrow-minded when it comes to change: I can't stand change when it comes and avoid it at all costs, even if I know it's for the better. I'm secure in my own world the way it is. 4. Can't stand healthy food: I'm awful when it comes to eating vegetables and other healthy food. I like fruit, but almost anything else, I nearly puke when I eat. 5. Never do what my parents ask: (ever! says my mum) I always use the phrase 'in a minute' when they ask me to do something like get off the computer or tidy my room.
Define in your own words the following key traits:
Courage: Bravery when one is called to be brave, evern though they may not want to.
Loyalty: To stick with someone through thick and thin, not staying for the fair-weather.
Intelligence: A person who uses their knowledge to the best of their ability and above others'.
Ambition: To strive for something or something you believe in.
