Re: Task 6: Tips, Tricks and Trepidations

My advice would be: don't be afraid to come back. If for some reason life gets in the way and perhaps you're not as active this year (or next year, or the year after that) as you would have liked, remember that HOL isn't going anywhere. The community here is so positive and welcoming that it might f...

Re: Task 2: First Impressions

Bella walked slowly into the Great Hall, and paused to take in the grandiose mix of colors and clean, neat layout of all the different booths. Bella had been away sick from school for a few years, and although all the buildings looked the same, she couldn't help but feel something was ... different ...

Re: Task 1: Name Badges

As I just created a new signature in August, I'm going to also use it as my name tag! My name tag features a blue, slightly fuzzy/pixelated background which is actually one of the first long exposure night-sky images I took with my new camera! You can even see a few stars. The color scheme is mostly...

They also generally have a few other things mixed in like orange peels and such. There used to be a lovely tea shop a short drive awa...

Re: Coffee Shop Orders

I used to go to Starbucks WAAAAAAY too much. My go-to order was a Matcha iced latte, light ice, soy milk with an everything bagel, warmed, with cream cheese.

I also really enjoyed Matcha frappucinos, seasonal frappucinos and basically anything with whipped cream. It's my 2nd favorite food :lol:

Re: Summer Vacation ending ...

I've been doing a form of muggle camping. Instead of apparating into a forest, we've parked our camper in a public campsite and told ourselves we were "getting back to nature and roughing it." Same here, sort of! A muggle friend was going on vacation so I'm looking after their cat while they're gon...

My favourite series would have to be The Obernewtyn Chronicles by Isobelle Carmody. Definately tops the Potter Series (although I haven't reread them in a while)

I also like the House Of Night series by P.C and Kirsten Cast

I only recently got Sims 3. I don't have any expansions but I love the game already! I turned the aging process to slow because I don't want my sims to get old and die.. Well I do, but more slowly! Next I'm going to try and have a kid. Oh the joys of virtual parenting.. And I only used the money che...

I currently don't play an instrument but I've secretly always wanted to learn to play the violin. If anyone knows where I should start (whether I should buy myself one or just get lessons etc) that would be much appreciated!

Hey Laurie, I've never played either of those versions before.
I didn't know you could kill monsters! What else is different about that game?

Yeah, I've kinda gotten bored with the game now, because I still haven't gotten married.
And yeah running around collecting all the grasses and stuff is tough because theres not enough bag space!

Hmm, I don't have a Gamecube but I think 3D faces would be super cute!

I chose Popuri :) and so far i have her on Red heart but i dont have all the stuff from the shopping network yet.

And I've never playing A Wonderful Life, but by the way you describe it i'd be better off buying an old gamecube and getting that instead! It would probably be cheaper too ...

I'm playing FOMT at the moment on my computer's emulator. I'm totally addicted! I remember playing the PS version but that was a loooong time ago, i'm sure i liked it though.

Once I save up for a DS ill buy the DS version if its any good.
