Astrology + Hogwarts Classes

My friend Max and I were talking about the classes we think we’d be best in, and I just had to create a masterpost.

Aries: Defense Against the Dark Arts
I know how absolutely cliche this is, but it’s just perfect for Aries. Not only are they learning something fast-paced, they’re learning something practical. It appeals to their quick-mindedness, but also their desire to succeed.
Taurus: Study of Ancient Runes
I feel like Taurus would just be extremely fascinated by the history of the wizarding world, and would enjoy something antique and interesting like Ancient Runes. 
Gemini: Alchemy
Alchemy is very complex and mechanical, and I feel like a Gemini would be so intrigued by it. Since it’s a specialized subject, they would probably have to take in and learn difficult information quickly, which is perfect.
Cancer: Potions
Potions really suits Cancer, because while it’s pretty mechanical, it can also be a very intuitive art. They would be mesmerized by the actual process of creating and by the possibilities of future potions.
Leo: Flying Lessons
Risky, fun, competitive… Leo all around. They would love the adrenaline rush and work hard to be best in class.
Virgo: Herbology
Herbology is very tedius, earthy, and time consuming, which I think is just perfect for Virgo. My Virgo mother is always planting trees and working in her garden, so it seemed the perfect fit!
Libra: Charms
Why wouldn’t Libra be charms? It’s absolutely perfect for them. It’s entertaining and clever, yet could be used in the real world.
Scorpio: Transfiguration
Transfiguration is difficult and transformative, which just screams Scorpio to me. Plus McGonagall teaches that class, and I think all of the Scorpio students would just adore her dry humor and toughness.
Sagittarius: Care of Magical Creatures
It always irritated me that Hermione and Harry seemed so uninterested in Care of Magical creatures. You are literally seeing creatures out of books you’ve read. I think that Sags would have a natural affinity with animals, and would love learning about them.
Capricorn: Arithmancy
This class is tricky, time consuming, and all around challenging, but fascinating. 100% Cap.
Aquarius: Astronomy 
Aquas would love how this class is informative and scientific, and yet somewhat enigmatic and dreamy. I always associate Aquas with space, so this was an easy fit.
Pisces: Divination 
Pisces would just be all about crystal balls and tea leaf readings. They like the superstitious and subconscious, so they would have a natural affinity for it. I bet a lot of Pisces would end up as Divination professors, fortune tellers, or seers.

For all of you HP nerds out there, I hope you enjoyed this as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Things my family taught me:

-How to wash clothes: cold water, detergent and oxi-clean, fabric softener, put it on whatever cycle the fabric says on the tag. Listen to the tag for two washes, then it should be safe to test other cycles, as long as you’re willing to take the risk.
-Check the washing instructions before you buy the clothes. Only buy something you need to wash on delicate if you love it so much you’re willing to do two loads of laundry just to have it.
-It’s okay to have a pajama day once a week or so, but always take a shower and put on clean pajamas at the end of the day (if clean pajamas are available)
-Add a little bit of vanilla to pancake mix, and use milk instead of water. They’ll taste like they’re made from scratch.
-Quick healthy meal for one: take a slice of bread, cut it into cubes. Mix two eggs with a pinch of salt and some milk, cook the bread in butter in a frying pan, add eggs. Scrambled eggs and breadcubes. It’s also sensory-friendly!
-Find time to do what you love, even if it just means drawing for ten minutes in the middle of the night.
-Have an animal at every opportunity.
-Marinate steak in soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and red wine.
-if you can’t have an animal, go over to your local shelter and spend as much time as you can with the animals there. They’re all starved for attention.
-Seriously, wash your clothes in cold water. That way you don’t have to check if it’s safe to wash them in warm or not.
-wash bedsheets (and towels) in hot water. It kills any possibility of bedbugs.
-Always put your keys in the same place. Ours is a dish on a table right when you walk in from the garage.
-Vacuum at least every other week. Don’t let dust settle, you’ll be sneezing up a storm.
-Macaroni and cheese is a perfectly acceptable meal
-have a day job as a backup plan if you’re trying to get your start.
-when you feel like crap, take a shower and use the fanciest soap you have to clean yourself. Sing, cry, plot in the shower. It’s your safe haven.
-good food is the best way to get everyone happy and smiling.

All of In The Flesh in Google Drive format.

It’s just easier to use, especially if your internet is as slow as mine!

Just a note though, please please don’t reblog this. Just send the link and let people like it. If it gets on Tumblr’s radar it could be really bad for me. They’ve shut blogs down for more innocent things. Thank you!!

helloo everyone!!!
after having my studybr for now 3-4ish months, i have seen many many many masterposts with tips for new studyblrs and i decided to make one myself after reaching 3.5k recently c:
i’m hoping to make this short and sweet so if you have any other questions to do with making a studyblr, don’t be afraid to ask me privately!!

urls:

  • one of the first things people see/notice about your studyblr and any tumblr in general is your url.
  • many people like to use their name and add “studies” or “study” or something to do with learning at the end as their url
  • however the above option may not be available for you since you have a pretty common name so finding something unique is important
  • incorporate something you like to your url!! like maybe you like cheese, your url could be ‘cheesystudies’
  • i personally chose to use a word which is to do with studying (academic) and added an extra letter based on how the word is pronounced, so for myself, i added a ‘h’ to make ‘acadehmic’ 
  • remember short and simple (unlike my masterposts lmaO)
  • also i like to think that your url is your identity here, so like people know me as acadehmic (i hope) and people know popular studyblrs from their urls

themes:

  • a great, easy to navigate theme is very appealing for many and is one of the ways for people to find resources etc.
  • i personally love the theme makers:
  • a tags page is v important for those who post things as your followers may use your blog as a resource blog and it would make their lives 100x easier when looking for things
  • i like to include a faq page so then my followers can go there before asking questions in case i have already answered their question there and then i don’t have to answer the same questions over and over again

ok i’ve made the blog… what now?

  • make an introductory post!!
    • tell everyone your name, age, what you are studying, what you are interested in, who inspired you to make the studyblr and why you made it!
    • an introductory post is a way for others to have a small insight to your blog
    • make sure to tag it with #studyspo #studyblr and even tag studyblrs and their tracked tags as you may not have many or any followers yet so you need to get your blog out there and known!
  • post original content (woooooo)
    • please don’t repost, reblog!! (its our hard work)
    • post whatever you are interested in, whatever you are studying in ways that you enjoy
    • take pictures of your notes, your studyspace (area you study in), your revision guides, or even take photos of the library you’re studying in!!
    • make masterposts and printables hehe
    • share your knowledge and tips, for example if you have learnt spanish or chinese for 10 years and am almost fluent and have picked up on some apps or tips and tricks, share them with the community!!
    • you can take part in the #100daysofproductivity!
  • tag studyblrs in your tags!
    • many studyblrs track tags and they will reblog posts if they have been tagged with their specific tracked tag
    • mine is #acadehmic (i check everyday and reblog everything as long as it relates to studying)
    • your favourite studyblrs probably track a tag so go check out their blog and find out what their tracked tag is!
  • interact!
    • message your favourite studyblrs or any studyblrs and develop friendships with people!
    • some people like to host blog awards or blog rates, join in or make your own!
    • join some study networks such as @studyblrindex c:

my masterposts:

try not to focus too much on the aesthetics and aiming for pretty notes, if it helps you to make pretty notes then make them but as long as you are studying, you are a great studyblr!

again, i have rambled on and on in this masterpost but i hope i hoped heh
studygram : acadehmic
