WIZARD MODES OF TRAVEL

Vehicles The Knight Bus- This was an excellent example. A special, magic bus, it could leap whole oceans at a time. The Weasley Car- It WAS a normal car… until Mr. Weasley bewitched it to fly. Eventually, it escaped and ran wild in the forest.  The Beauxbatons Carriage- The one in the Goblet of Fire... Continue Reading →

HARRY BLOWS UP AUNT MARGE

At the beginning of the third book in the series, the Prisoner of Azkaban, Rowling introduced Harry, as usual. Then Ron, who didn’t know how to use a phone, tried to give Harry a call, and the results were funny. He actually reminds me of myself, for I was always bad at using a phone.... Continue Reading →

The Prisoner of Azkaban

I was a delayed reader, but I finally learned how to read the Harry Potter books. I re-read the first one, then I completed the second one. Flushed with success and an increased vocabulary, I longed to proceed to the third one. I was eleven years old. My dad, however, had other ideas. “There’s too... Continue Reading →

YOU HAVE TO BREAK SOME RULES

I, like Hermione, have always been a very rule-abiding person. When I was little, I went so far as to turn myself in for punishment if I thought I did something wrong, then the teacher would say, “No, you’re fine. No, you don’t need a time out. No, you’re not going to be punished. Get... Continue Reading →

WE ARE WHAT WE CHOOSE TO BE

When I was once upset, I cried, “But all these thoughts in my head that distress me! I must be a terrible person!!” Someone else told me, “What are you doing that’s so bad?” She was right. Thoughts and actions are separate. Is it wrong to have bad thoughts in your head? Yes. What can... Continue Reading →

RIDDLE’S DIARY- SOCIAL MEDIA?

Perhaps my favorite Harry Potter book was actually the second one, “The Chamber of Secrets.” I’ve always been fascinated with hidden chambers, dark corridors, monsters lurking, and heroes in shining armor rescuing the fair maiden. Classic stories, made alive again!  Although the Chamber of Secrets has all these old and classic story plots, there are... Continue Reading →

THE FEARFUL GRIP

I know I said I wasn’t going to give any advice about this trouble, but this post sounds a lot like advice, doesn’t it? Yes, but I didn’t make up this advice. This is advice I’ve been given from books, parents, and an interesting video linked below. Since I found all this info interesting in... Continue Reading →

THE TWO-FACED GOD

I love exploring the art museum. The one I most often go to is the Kimbell Art museum in Fort Worth. Not only did I attend for a homeschool formal, but also on my own time. To me, there’s nothing more enjoyable than standing in church, nature, or an art museum. Of course, they are... Continue Reading →

CORONAVIRUS MEETS HARRY POTTER

When I heard how people were acting about the coronavirus- all the masks, toilet paper, and hand sanitizer, almost all of which do nothing to stop the virus, I said to myself, “Hmm, I feel like I’ve heard this somewhere before.” It turns out, I have.  In the Harry Potter books, Voldemort returned a second...
