Want to have a good laugh? Go ahead! (Part II)

Ciao! I didn’t know till today that the funny bone is an actual thing! For those of you who don’t know, it’s actually the ulnar nerve (yes, it isn’t even a bone) that runs from your neck to your hand. At the elbow joint, though, it’s only protected by skin and fat which means that…

Want to have a good laugh? Go ahead! (Part I)

Ciao!It’s the exam season here in India, and everyone in grades 10 and 12 is super tense about their board exams. Feverishly studying through the night, reciting chemistry formulae while eating, having nightmares whenever they do sleep… it’s a tale of horror. In these dark times, we need a bit of happiness, a little relaxation….

Old English In A New Box

Hullo bookworms!! I recently discovered my most favorite chapter in my English text book: Julius Caesar. It’s more like an excerpt, actually. We’ve got Julius Caesar’s murder and Marcus Brutus and Marcus Antoniuss’ speeches. I’ve always liked reading Shakespeare, so I was thrilled when I found out that we had a part of Julius Caesar….

My Fictional Bucket List

Hullo bookworms!! Ever since I started reading, I’ve wanted to be: a witch, a demigod, a Lannister, a Shadowhunter, Divergent and a Queen of Narnia, to name a few. Basically, anything other than a mundane Muggle. Sadly, I haven’t gotten my Hogwarts letter, haven’t been claimed by my godly parent and I haven’t even found…

Harry Potter Quiz

Hullo Potterheads!! MY EXAMS ARE OVERRRRRR!!!!!! Since I was getting bored (with no studying to do), I decided to quiz you all on my favorite subject- Harry Potter. There are 3 levels to this quiz, with varying difficulty levels. You can pick one or choose to do all three. These aren’t exactly the easiest questions,…

Magical Theory: Spells

Hullo Potterheads!! Welcome to my first Magical Theory lesson! If spells from Harry Potter sound like Greek and Latin to you, never fear (they’re more Latin than Greek, though). So read on, it’s time to brush up those rusty languages! Alohomora Meaning- One of the first spells in the series,  the word is supposedly from…

All the Times Harry was a Stupid (and brave) Gryffindor- Part II

Hullo Potterheads!! I’m sorry I haven’t posted for so long, I haven’t been able to think of anything at all. Writer’s block 😦 On top of that, I recently discovered that I had to complete a project and submit it within a week. You might want to read my previous post again, if you’ve forgotten…

All the times Harry was a Stupid (and brave) Gryffindor- Part I

Hello Potterheads!! Happy 31st July to you all! Now, I’m a clever and ambitious Slytherin, so I don’t see the point of of Gryffindor tomfoolery, but, even I have to admit, Harry was a particularly brave wizard. As (Harry’s)birthday treat, I’m going to describe every time Harry acted (stupidly) on his impulses (his entire life,…

Quidditch in the Muggle World

Hey guys!! Guess what I read in the newspaper today? The Muggle world (which I’m obviously not a part of) has finally discovered Quidditch (I mean Quidditch, not football)! It’s about time, too. The Muggles had no idea what they’ve been missing out on. Okay, so maybe this is a slightly improvised version of my…

Some Captivating Classics

Hey guys!! I’ve always heard classics are extremely long and extremely boring books, so I tried reading a few. To my surprise, they aren’t that bad at all! Even though the story might be a little slow, the plot is usually very interesting and it reflects the era which the writer lived in. So today,…
