Q & A – This week: 6/2017

We have now made it to week six in twentyseventeen. I feel the new year was not that long ago, but at the same time it’s been a while. Either way, here are this weeks questions.

⚡ Is there a job you’d want to have, were you a part of the wizarding world?
– I would like to be a teacher at Hogwarts, probably in charms or muggle studies.
Did you know, I’m a teacher in the muggle world as well? If not teacher I would
try my luck as a journalist. Not the Rita Skeeter kind, but a good and fair one. 

⚡ Which shop in Diagon Alley or Hogsmeade would you like to visit?
  – Of course I would visit every single one, but if you had to pick one, like a
favorite…ooohh…For the first time visit, it would be Ollivanders. But if I was a
regular in the wizarding world, I think maybe Flourish & Blotts, the book store.
One, because I love books, and two, I could read about all the magical things
and learn so much! Still, I would love all of the shops, like Wiseacre’s Wizarding

              Equipment, Honeydukes, Weasleys’ Wizarding Wheezes, and so forth. 

⚡ What is your quidditch position?
– On the stands. I would fail all my flying classes, on the simple fact that I would be
terrified. I can do rollercoasters, but heights are terrifying to me. And to be on a broom,
high above the ground..not gonna happen. If I had to pick a position I think I would say
beater. I could swing a bat from time to time. Catch and throw balls while riding a
broom needs a little more coordination than I have whilst on a broom.

⚡ Harry Potter this week?
            – I recently bought the two-disc special edition of all the Harry Potter movies, so almost
every day this week I have been watching some Harry Potter, either movie or bonus
features. It’s been a blast. And I’ll keep watching next week as well. While watching
movies I’ve been knitting. I started way back in January, but I’m a slow knitter. I’m
making a scarf, and soon it will be as long as I am!

How was your week? Any Harry Potter in there?           


Harry Potter Theme Party – pt. 3 (Quidditch)

After “school” it was time for quidditch. My brother and I had a huge project of making brooms for everyone, and it was a lot of fun to finally use them. I will show you more on how we made them in a later project. We borrowed some ideas from muggle quidditch on how to make this work, and made rules that we though was quite good. In the beginning of the match it was a bit try and fail, but eventually everyone understood the rules and mastered the art of flying on a broom.

Tell you what, quidditch is a lot of fun, but also quite a work-out session if you play properly. We played two matches, but was in need of a long break in between.

Tomorrow I’ll tell you about our trip to Diagon Alley. Stay tuned.
