Rewind & Review #64


~My biology class stressed me out. Can't wait until I actually have a break from schoolwork. I know I won't regret taking biology online but, at the same time, it's making me incredibly cranky.
~Sunny took a bad turn last weekend. We took him to the vet on Monday. He was not quite 14 and we'd had him for not quite 13 years. I'm glad he's not suffering anymore; I just wish he'd had a few more years. Coming home from school for breaks is going to be awfully lonely now.
~Pottermore launched a sorting quiz for the American school, Ilvermorny's houses. I was sorted into Wampus first, and then when I created a second account, Pukwudgie. First of all, those are pretty ridiculous names (oh, look, it's the Slytherin in me showing). Second, I feel like the questions that led me to Pukwudgie more accurately reflected my personality (there were some different questions), but I still don't know if I agree with these sortings. Maybe it's because we know so little about the personalities and interests of those in the Ilvermorny houses, as opposed to the Hogwarts houses. I think I'll stick to being an American student who goes to school in Great Britain, thank you very much. It would be fun, though, to get sorting quizzes for the schools all around the world.
