Agrippa (A Book of the Dead)

Today’s exercise that we did in class kept me on my toes, but like Alexandria, I’m not sure how I felt about it. On one hand, it was engaging and interactive. On the other hand, it was very stressful waiting to see if anyone would speak and trying to make sure what we were reading didn’t scroll up and away. I think it was more about the interactivity of the piece rather than what it was about, but that’s just my take on it!

Annnnnd We’re Back!

Break is over and I’m ready to hit the ground running! Unfortunately, I’ve come down with a bit of a cold, presumably from all of the traveling I did during my time off and small shared spaces on planes and trains. But! That won’t stop me! I’ve fared worse!

I’m looking forward to the new lessons about technology and programming, because that’s a skill for Muggles I’d love to have and one that isn’t taught here at Hogwarts. Regardless of whether I choose to live a Muggle or Witch lifestyle after leaving Hogwarts, I’d still like to learn about digitalization and such. Knowledge is everything, after all.

It’s strange to think that I’ll be out on my own very shortly. It’s quite frightening, really. I have all of this knowledge about so many different subjects, but still feel like I don’t know all I need to in order to make it. I’m trying my best not to worry about it, but anxiety is a funny, torturous thing.

Magic and Technology

Last night, I had the pleasure of chatting with one of my Hufflepuff friends, Zoe. I’ve always expressed my frustration on here at the lack of technology at Hogwarts, but she helped me understand just why that was. I know a lot of things, but I don’t know everything, but Zoe always fills in my blanks! She explained to me that the reason technology doesn’t work in the Wizarding World is because magic and technology interfere with one another. That makes sense. It’s still frustrating, but upon consideration, I don’t think I’d trade anything for magic. Technology included!
