The Wizard


1. What kind of wood is your wand be made of? Go to the Celtic Wood Chart and find which according to your birth date. (This is similar to the traditional horoscopes.) Then copy-paste the description here. Bold traits that describe you very well and strike those that do not apply to you whatsoever. Then provide a brief commentary on how accurate you think these traits are in the scope of your nature and personality.

July 21st -"The 'new moon' Holly individual is more inclined to become involved with the dreams and ambitions of others by providing both financial and emotional support. While this is indicative of an unselfish and sympathetic nature, it can lead to a blind optimism which may be personally damaging. The 'full moon' Holly individual is more committed to his or her own dreams and ambitions. Such people are likely to become the founding members of societies or business corporations while still retaining a sense of history and tradition. The 'full moon' Holly individual, however, is frequently hypersensitive to personal criticism and may be forced to retreat periodically from the world. "

Practical, capable, steadfast in the face of adversity, cautious, logical, efficient, good business sense, prefers to assist rather than lead, supportive, protective, possessive, strives for perfection, loss of confidence and direction, exhibits large amounts of guiding principles,sensitivity to personal criticism, tends to influence things a great deal, usually behind the scenes, word is literally a bond and honour in guiding principles,  constant need of attention and affection, demanding in a close relationship, exhibits a miserly attitude, not known to be a risk taker, solves difficult problems through the use of simple logic, attracted to banking and insurance,strong willed,trustworthy, great reserve of physical endurance, much spiritual contentment,  excellent eye for a good deal, collector of "artifacts", affectionate as a mate, overly protective, not inclined to wander, tends to have a number of close friends of both sexes, appears to lack a sense of humour,dislikes laughing at the expense of others, can be reclusive, requires a quiet place in which to take respite from huge responsibilities.

The description under holly is not like me at all, apart from the last part that says that about being hyper sensitive to criticism, it's not that I care what people think but I just hate being criticized:/
As for the traits there are a lot which are nothing like me there.Looking at the traits I've bolded a lot of them show a strong willed person with a strong personality which is how I am described a lot by friends and family. Some of the traits that I've bolded although seem to be a contradiction are true, my character is very complicated and sometimes I think I am two extremes in one person.

2. How do you think you would use magic? On a day to day basis? Over your entire lifespan?
To be honest I would use it for little things such as housework and other things I didn't want to do, I would also use it for finding things. I am a terribly messy person who can never find what I am looking for, so Accio would be the answer to my prayers! I would definitely use magic to create new spells and potions that n one had ever heard of. That is the type of career I would pursue if a witch.

3. What are your strongest personality traits? Your weakest?
Strongest: Determination, creativity, resource-fullness, courage.

Determination - I'm a very determined person I would say that is my main character trait, if there is something I want I won't give up until I succeed even if it takes forever, even if it is something that could cause me harm or whatever I just keep on until I get it.
My determination has been the thing that has kept me alive through some real hard times in my life, funnily enough it has also nearly gotten me killed on a few occasions :/

Creativity - I have a very vivid and surreal imagination, most of my hobbies are creative ones such as writing,drawing, sewing, making things and designing stuff. It is something that gives me no end of pleasure and always keeps me busy especially when I'm bored or sick. However I do have a short attention span and always try to do multiple things at once.

Resource-fullness - I am always able to talk my way out of difficult situations and am always the one who ends up solving problems with careful words and ideas. I am crafty I admit and most of the time can get myself out of trouble, which I suppose is something you learn when you get into as many difficult situations as I do, although I have the knack of getting myself out them I also have the knack of getting myself into them :/
One thing I am blessed with is the knack of turning people's words around thus getting them to say what I want or admit something. My nickname at school was the "class lawyer", a career I would have loved to pursue if only it didn't involve all that darned studying!

Courage - I am not afraid of anyone. The only person I fear is God. If I believe in something then I will stand up for it, even if no-one else agrees. I'm not afraid to be true to myself even if it means I'm different to everyone else (which is the case a lot of the time) I have different beliefs and tastes to most of my friends but I never pretend to agree with them or be someone else just to liked, as the saying goes I'd rather be hated for someone I am than loved for someone I am not. Also I'm the type of person who will always defend the underdog, the person who can't stand up for themself.

Weakest:

Temper - It's awful, honestly it's always getting me into trouble and I lose it much too often and sometimes over little things, when I go into a very bad temper I am prone to aggression even towards myself. Seriously I know I have anger issues.

Competitiveness - I always have to win, even if it's just a playstation game and I'm playing against the computer I will play all night if I have to, to beat the other opponent, then I'll try and beat the score. I always want to be the best and this sometimes is tiring especially as in some things there will always be people better than yourself.

Untrusting - In the past I have been betrayed by a lot of men, and once even by a person whom I considered to be a close friend, it taught me not to trust ANYONE 100% however it also makes me miserable as sometimes even though I want to trust a person , I find I am physically unable to because I am afraid of being betrayed again.

Worrier - I blame this trait on my imagination being so vivid. I worry about anything and everything that can and will go wrong, this would be the first trait about myself that I would change as it causes me a lot of misery and sleepless nights. Sometimes I find that I am actually inventing things to worry about.

4. If you could solve world hunger by killing one person would you? Explain why or why not

I would love to say no, definitely not but I would be lying. To save world hunger would be wonderful, firstly for the obvious reason all those starving kids and people would be fed, watered and have better lives, also for the recognition, imagine the fame that would bring.
Also the action of killing someone would be something I could do if it was someone I didn't like, some certain people are nothing but scum that the whole world would be better off without anyway. So unfortunately I have to yes I would kill an enemy to save world hunger, if people think I'm making this up I assure you I'm being totally honest here.

5. Who would you say is your role model? Explain.
I can't really choose a certain person, however to me a good role model is someone who has had a difficult life and has come out on the other side, through bad experiences as a stronger person. Also anyone who comes from a difficult upbringing and manages to succeed in life at whatever they want. They are the people who inspire me and that is the person that I want to be, anyone who is like that is my role model.

6. How do you respond to confrontation?
I blow up very quickly, as I said earlier I am a very fiery person and can get aggressive quickly, sometimes my anger goes away as quickly as it came and I am am sorry for the way I handled things afterwards(that's normally when I get het up over a little thing)
If I am REALLY angry I will be aggressive, yell, swear, and all that jazz but my usual course is to say things that I know will hurt the other person, especially if I know that person's weak points, that is the way I respond to confrontation. The tongue is the most powerful weapon, it's true.

7. What values are important in your life?
Courage   - Simply because I hate cowards.  To have courage to stand up for what you believe in and be yourself is the best thing you can do for yourself. If you are always true to yourself then people can't really hurt you.

Determination - I know this sounds like a rant about determination but this HAS to be here, for all the reason I stated previously and more. This is a trait that I seriously doubt I could survive without.

Strentgh - Of the mind and body are both important to me. I like pain because I think that pain is something we all have to endure in this life (physically and mentally) normally before we can achieve something that will make us happy. I see this as something that makes the pleasure afterwards all the more great. " It makes something more special if you have to suffer first", helps you realise how lucky you are to have that something. I also like to push my body to limits to see what I can stand and make myself physically stronger. Strentgh of the mind is something that is impossible to survive without in this world. Some people who don't have it end up in bad situations and a lot of people I knew in my life who didn't have it committed suicide because they couldn't cope :( For me it works the opposite I think that the harder your life is the stronger you become but I guess it just depends on your character.
Also one thing I really fear is losing my mind, you know losing it totally and ending up in  mental home, at one point in my life when I was going through hell (also had aminor drug problem) I realised how near to the edge I was and vowed that would never happen and to be strong. For that I am proud of myself. That's another reason why strentgh of mind is so important to me.

8. If you were to face a boggart, what would it turn into? 
There are two things that it would turn into, the first is my mum dead because we are incredibly close and that is the thing I fear most in the world.
The other thing is an octopus, I have the most awful phobia of them and can't even bear to look at a picture of one.

The World


9. What makes a person respectable?
Well I hate people to judge me and the way I live my life so I don't judge others, after all it's not really up to me to determine who is respectable and who isn't. So this is just going to be what I respect in a person. Firstly(and sorry to repeat) but determination does it for me every time.There is nothing I respect more than someone who refuses to give up on their goals/dreams even if it seems impossible. Another thing I respect a lot is when a person isn't afraid to be true to them-self or to stand out from the crowd(I guess Individuality is a good word), I admire people who are upfront about who/what they are and pull no punches. Even it means not conforming or being disliked and thought of as "bad", "wrong" or "weird".

10. Which of the basic elements do you identify with the most: Earth, Air, Fire, or Water?
At first I was going to say fire because of my fiery temper and passion for things, but after considering it I decided Air(wind), as it represents my moods. I am a very moody person, can be calm and breezy one minute and in a bad/ depressive mood the next in other words stormy. The way the wind changes is really something I can relate myself and my mood swings to.

11. Do you believe there can be a truly selfless act?
I know this is going to sound awful, but no. As Joey once said in "Friends' even the most selfless act makes you feel good about yourself, thus making it not completley selfless. Savvy?

12. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you choose and why?
Apart from here? lol, not that I'm gloating about my country we lack a lot of things I don't deny that but I could never live abroad, I miss it too much when I go on holiday. Yes, I'm patriotic. However I'm going to answer this as if I could live anywhere BUT here. I would say either Japan - because I love everything about that country, culture, cartoons, fashion, guys -EVERYTHING really. I also think it's a beautiful, mysterious country with a lot of interesting history and love anything oriental. Another place would be Scotland - that along with Japan are the two countries I want to visit. Scotland is beautiful and have always had a thing for the place and the accent!

The Reader


13. Have you read all of the Harry Potter Books? If yes, which book is your favorite and why? If no, which book is your favorite so far and why haven't you finished the rest?
Chamber of secrets, for so many reasons but mainly beacause I thought it was the most mysterious of the lot, I love the mystery and suspense how right up until the end you don't really know what's going to happen, also I like the characters of moaning myrtle, Gilderoy and Tom Riddle also I thought that it was one of the darkest books , the nearest one to verging on horror. Also the atmosphere was great eerie,mysterious and I love how we learnt more about Voldermort's past. Half-blood prince follows because I enjoyed learning about Snape's past.

14. Who is your favorite character in the HP series? Why?
Severus Snape. I loved him from the beginning even when it seemed that he was a bad guy. I always knew that there was more to him than met the eye, some type of mystery. He is one character who is not all bad/all good, there are so many levels. In a lot of ways her also reminds me of myself. Hard childhood, determined, held on to his past and was unable to move forward and also his sarcasm. Sarcasm never fails to make me smile and is one of my own offerings, that's just my humour and also it can be great for putting some person I dislike in their place. Nothing beats making someone speechless without a comeback.

15. Which character is your least favorite in the HP series? Why?
James Potter and Peter Pettigrew. James Potter because I think he was a bully who felt he could only get attention from the girl he admired by belittling someone else.
Peter Pettigrew because he was a spineless coward who couldn't even be true to himself let alone his friends. He said he sold his friends, Lily and James to Voldemort because he was afraid, if he had any strength of character at all he would have thought of some other way to get out of selling them to Voldemort, got away from Voldemort himself and not betrayed his friends, I think he was an excuse for a human being.

16. If you were a part of the HP series, what canon character(s) would you be friends with and why? Which character(s) do you think you would not get along with?
Hogwarts during Voldemort's era the Hagrid, we share a love of animals and I just like him in general.
Hogwarts in the 70's Snape definitely, I can identify my teenage self with him as a teenager, also I was always friends with loners and different people at school.
Hogwarts - Harry's era I would definitely be friends with the Weasley twins, I am mischievous like them and like playing tricks (not ones that hurt others) and am always up to mischief and inventing schemes.I would have a blast with them inventing new supplies for their shop ^__-

17. Choose a quote from one of the HP books. ANY quote. Be sure to cite who said it and explain why it is your favorite. 
 "The mind is not a book, to be opened at will and examined at leisure. Thoughts are not etched on the inside of skulls, to be perused by an invader. The mind is a complex and many-layered thing." - Severus Snape.

It is completely true, no two ways about it. The mind is the most powerful and complex thing of all, as Severus stated it's also a many- layered thing and it is ultimately what makes us the person we are. Our opinions,most choices and general way of thinking are all controlled by ur minds, even things we're not aware of that lie in our subconcsious. The mind just fascinates me in general.
