O.W.L.s, Fashiolista & PinterestTuesday, June 26, 2012
Mugglenet recently released a section in their site where Potterheads like me could take the O.W.L. exams. The test period ended also last Sunday, June 24. I was actually disappointed with myself for not taking all the subjects on time. I wasn't able to take Potions, Divination, History, etc. Here are my grades though:
The tests were pretty darn difficult. First few questions were easy, but it gets harder each number. I even asked myself if I read the books thoroughly to forgot those details or it has been a while since I read the books.
I was even scared what 'Exceeds Expectations' mean. I thought it was a failing grade. Jeez. What happened to me? I think Gilderoy Lockhart casted a memory charm on me to forget these. As I checked my Harry Potter files on my phone (yes, I have a list that I need to update), I learned that it was a good grade to achieve from O.W.L.s. As you can see I had an O for Care of Magical Creatures. Thank God, I read Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Newt Scamander two years ago which made me familiar to the creatures. I also found Transfiguration way easier than Defense Against the Dark Arts. Things were made easier when I took Charms first. It made me familiarized again with the spells that were also asked for Transfiguration.
I am happy with my grades. It was like being in school again that I need to review again plus it was time-pressured. I hope Mugglenet will open O.W.L.s again so I could take the classes wasn't able to. Imagine how difficult N.E.W.T.s will be compare to O.W.L.s. Definitely mind-boggling
I also gave in to Fashiolista. It is sort of my inspiration board for outfits. If you want to mix and match similar or pieces you have, use fashiolista so you can see the outcome properly. I love seeing pretty things. This addiction started with Tumblr.
I also have my Pinterest now so you can see my moodboards, from Harry Potter to books, to fashion, etc.
You can follow me on both, Fashiolista & Pinterest, and I would gladly return the favor. Just tell me in the comment box that you followed me and leave your links as well! ♥
