Re: Discussion #4 - Values and Wizarding Jobs

My important values were Aesthetic, Theoretical, and Religious. I can agree on the Aesthetic and Theoretical. I like beautiful things and I ponder greater mysteries all the time while I’m zoning out. I’m not super religious though. Nor am I against it. I just find it odd that it was listed so high o...

Re: Discussion #3 - Intelligence

I got Music Smart. I completely agree with this. Music is the sound to which my heart beats to. I love it. My best stories come from concerts passed. I have near 3,000 songs on my phone with music ranging from Japanese to Celtic to Wizard Rock. It’s all over the place because there are emotions behi...

Re: Discussion #2 - Personality

I got INFJ (Introvert-59%, iNtuitive-47%, Feeling-22%, Judging-12%) It’s very true with my personality. I get told all the time how I’m really extroverted, when I’m actually dying inside because I would rather be curled up alone with my cat and good book. I may know a lot of people, it happens, but ...

Re: Pet Discussion #4

As much as I would love to have an owl, I’m so much a cat person that I wouldn’t be able to have an owl if I couldn’t also have a cat. The owls would have a place in the Owlery and be able to hunt and perch and eat and socialize with other owls. However, I would want a constant companionship that a ...

Re: Real Life Jobs

I currently work in a retail distribution center. It's really busy during the holidays but it's not bad. My favorite part is that while I am doing my work I'm in an area that allows headphones so I've been listening to audiobooks. I've made it through three ancient mythologies (Greek, Roman, and Nor...

Winter brings us cold white fluff from the sky and blankets the world in quiet beauty. Children wake up to hear that there is no school and joyous cheers resound from all corners of the Earth. The day is suddenly yours! There's a tv show you've been meaning to binge on Netflix, snowmen to be made, s...

Celebration Memories

This time of year is so jam-packed with different celebrations that it's a little hard to keep them straight. No matter if you celebrate Christmas, Saturnalia, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Yule...they all bring us together with friends and family and often times gives us a wonderful memory to cherish far long...

TV Show Revivals

I've been seeing a lot of nostalgia inducing series being brought back from the dead in recent years with sequel series or continuations. Girl Meets World and Fuller House are sequels to two of my favourite 90's shows and they are reviving Will and Grace and Friends with new episodes. Not to mention...

Songs to Live By

There are literally millions of songs in existence with more added each day. Each song has a message to it and everyone has those songs that are 'anthems' to their life. What are they? What are the songs that you live by? The ones that you can't help but always go back to and remind you of your life...

When the Mourning Comes

This is something I feel a lot of people who aren't avid readers don't get. For those of us that are, we know how easy it is to get sucked into a story. How easy it is to fall in love with a book or book series and become attached to it and its characters. It is a safe place for us, a world that we ...
