  • Music:

You should have seen those sunrises, with your own eyeses.



  • What sort of profession in the wizarding world would you choose and why?
    I think I would chose something in potions. I like working with the tangible and it seems to be one of the few tangible arts in the wizarding world. Normally in the wizarding world, you wave a wand and say an incantation and things happen. You have so much more subtle control with potions.
    I'm also a teacher in my life, so I think I would to teach at Hogwarts too...

  • If you could teach one class at Hogwarts, what would it be and why?
    Potions, perhaps? Haha, mostly for the reasons listed above. Either that or History of Magic because I teach history in real life.. it's my favorite subject, and I would make it alot more interesting than Binns!

  • 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?
    Probably not. I think that would be way too much stress and scrutiny on me. It would probably make me very anxious and nervous all the time, and that's no way to live.

  • If you could choose your animagus form, what would it be and why?
    Probably a dove or some form of bird, because then if I needed to escape, I could just fly wherever I needed to go. The people I love are scattered in different places so that would make it easy to go see them.

  • What HP character do you identify with most and why?
    This is tough for me... I guess a combination of Hermione and Ginny. I'm a planner and I'm a worrier like Hermione is but I'm not quite as intense as she is about doing homework, etc. I feel like Ginny let her feelings about Harry stay inside of her for a long time because she was too scared to speak up. I can be like that sometimes, but I can also be very bold. I think if it was an older boy who was also regarded as a celebrity, I would be a lot more shy. Ginny seems shy around people she doesn't know but is very friendly around those who she is comfortable with, and that is definitely me.

  • What would you see if you looked into the Mirror of Erised?
    Myself married to the most perfect man for me, as well as many people admiring me for my work, be that teaching or something else. A lot of times I wish I was a famous singer even though I probably wouldn't be able to handle paparazzi following me around and people gossiping about my life.

  • If you won a million dollars, how would you spend it?
    - Pay off college loans - I just graduated from college and I don't like the idea of being thousands of dollars in debt lol. The sooner I can pay it off, the better.
    - Get apartment of my own - I'm living with my parents right now because I can't afford to live on my own. It's ok here but I really want to be able to live by myself (or with a roommate) instead of having to rely on them.
    - Get new car - My car works decently but it's really old.. so I'd like to get a new one haha. I really want a Jetta.
    - Go on a semi-nice vacation somewhere I've always wanted to go - I love to travel but I hardly ever have the money for it, so if I won a million dollars I would want to go to London and the rest of Europe, or Hawaii.
    - Save the rest - The rest would go into savings and I would try not to touch it haha.

  • What was your ideal job as a kid? Has that changed? What is your ideal job now?
    I really wanted to be an actress or director as a kid. I still would love to do that but I really have no experience in it and I wouldn't know the first way to break into the business, and I don't think I'd end up cutting it in the industry anyway LOL. Right now I'm a teacher and I like my job. Ideally I'd like to be a counselor, either at a school or maybe a drug counselor. I love to help people work through their problems and I love to talk to people.

  • 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?
    I would create a spell that would enable the person to create music from their wand... just by using your mind and your wand you would be able to bring in different instruments, change sounds, etc. Sounds kinda weird I guess haha. I would call it "Museopartum" - a little whacked out Latin there haha.

  • 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?
    A needle, coming to take my blood haha. I have a maaaajor doctor phobia. And after "Riddikulus" i think the stem of the needle would break off... or perhaps flowers would sprout out of the needle.

  • What do you look for in a friend?
    Honesty.. loyalty.. someone who likes the same things that I do, because otherwise what would we talk about? Someone who I can have great conversations with and of course someone who I can have fun with.

  • What trait most annoys you about other people?
    People who are very anal retentive about things. People who try to control every aspect of someone else's life. If you want to control every aspect of your own life, that's fine, but don't subject your views/desire to control on everyone else's lives.

  • What do you think are your top five abilities or qualities?
    - Intelligence - I'm a pretty smart person I think, and my intelligence has helped me achieve a lot in life.
    - Humor - I think I'm funny, who knows if I actually am haha. My friends tell me that I'm funny, but I have a very direct sense of humor, so I don't usually make a lot of jokes around people that I don't know, because I don't want to offend them.
    - Creativity - I like to come up with different ways of doing things or creating things. I also love doing art, particularly in Photoshop.. after years of practice I'm actually getting pretty good at it haha.
    - Understanding - I find that I'm able to put myself in other people's shoes more easily than some people might be. Even though I may not have experienced what that person has, I feel like I can relate it to something in my life and thus understand the person's feelings.
    - Helpfulness - I always want to be helpful. I'll do anything to help out my friends, or even to help someone I don't know that well.

  • What do you think are your top five weaknesses or worst qualities?
    - Excessive worrying - I worry A LOT about things that are beyond my control. It's something I'm working on in my life right now. I just try to tell myself that if I can't control it, I need not worry like crazy about it.
    - Procrastination - I tend to wait until the last minute to do things. Sometimes I work more efficiently on that deadline though. You know something has to be done so you really buckle down to do it because you only have so much time left.
    - Expecting honesty from people but not always getting it - I always EXPECT people to tell me the truth but I've lived long enough to know that not everybody does. It's disappointing to me because I'm a very honest person - that doesn't mean I don't ever lie, I just like to tell it like it is.
    - Laziness, at times - When I have my days off of work, I prefer to just hang out around the house in my pajamas. Obviously if there's something I have to do I'll go do it, but if not... I'll just relax haha.
    - Bad eating habits - I eat JUNK. I don't really like fruits and vegetables so I hardly eat any of them. I know one day this is going to catch up to me so I'm trying to change my eating habits.

  • Define in your own words the following key traits:

    • Courage: The ability to stand up for what you believe in despite what the repercussions might be.
    • Loyalty: Standing by a friend or idea because you believe that it's right.. no matter what others might say.
    • Intelligence: This isn't confined to just books and facts.. there are so many kinds of intelligence. It's being brilliant at whatever your thing is: math, playing an instrument, building a bridge.
    • Ambition: The desire to better yourself, but not the desire to do step on whoever you need to in order to get there.
