As you guys know, I’ve been reading the Harry Potter Books and there are some magical transportation that I would love to take on a joy ride. If, in real life, you’d like to hire a car, why don’t you check out the car rental company Turo!
5) Hogwarts Express
All Harry Potter fans wished they had received their acceptance letter from Hogwarts. The Hogwarts Express transported Harry to one of the only places he called home, Hogwarts, and even though there might not be there much magical about a train, I would really like to experience the ride to Hogwarts.
Even though I know I won’t be able to see Thestrals, they strike me as very interesting creatures. Being only seen by people who’ve seen death, I’d love to fly up to places on these invisible but amazing creature.
Everyone knows that Harry Potter’s favourite mode of transport is riding a broomstick. Flying came quite natural to Harry however, I believe that broomsticks might not be might my favourite magical transport due to my fear of heights and I’d imagine it can be quite uncomfortable on your backside. However, the thought of riding on a broomstick and playing Quidditch excites me!
2) The Knight Bus
The Knight Bus sounds like the most fun magical transportation in this list, the ride may not be as smooth, however I love the fact that you can ride the Knight bus in muggle streets without muggles having an clue that a triple-decker bus is travelling over 100mph!
1) Flying Ford Anglia
Literally being just a flying car, I can visualise myself using the flying Ford Anglia to travel to any destination, school, work etc. Not only can you avoid traffic but with the invisibility button (working), no one would be able to see you. I think I would experience the smoothest ride on the flying Ford Anglia and I can say goodbye to waiting for trains and Bus’s!
I hope you guys like my list, please tell me what other modes of transport from pop culture you’d like to ride and don’t forget to check out the car rental page by Turo.
I’m so glad that my mock exams are over, overall I found them OK and we have to wait until February to get our results back. It’s going to be like how we’d open our results in the real results day such as our grades are going to be in an envelope. I think that people who do Biology are going to our marks back in class however, we are going to get our actual grades in February. The mocks especially Psychology was harder than I thought it would be and AQA (the exam board) are making the exam seven harder than ever before. I’m happy that I don’t have to revise for a bit until my Easter mock exams!
I have finished reading the first 3 Harry Potter books and I’ve enjoyed reading all of them but Pisoner of Azkaban is my favourite, it’s soooo good and I think JK Rowling is a genius!☺️ one thing I’ve noticed is that Prisoner of Azkaban is the most dissimilar to the movies so far but, Prisoner of Azkaban is my favourite film as well. I’ve read the first 3 chapters of Godblet of Fire and I like so far. I love the Harry Potter universe and a couple of weeks ago I did the quiz that puts in you in one of the four houses in Hogwarts and I was put in Gryffindor which I’m quite proud of!
It’s hard to imagine that I’ve got only got 5 months left of sixth form until I leave school and go off to uni. I’ve had so many memories at this school…
This week has been a little harder to go through mostly because of coursework and some of my peers have been making life hell for me. It turns out that I am more behind than I thought on my critical investigation which is an essay about an tissue or topic in the media. I only have 2 weeks left to complete it and I also have 2 weeks left to hand in a rough cut of my opening sequence to my documentary. I’ve actually nearly finished the opening sequence of the documentary, I just need to find the right music and record the voice over.
I find it really sad how some people try to put you down and degrade you just to make themselves feel better about themselves. They just think they’re better than anyone else and feel like it’s ok to treat people how they want. I don’t know if these people realise that what they say hurts and what they’re doing isn’t actually banter. Why is it that when you’re trying to do work and mind your business they have to come and ruin your day? One boy in my media class, who I never talk to, shouted at me across the class aggressively to do something and said it as if I was a 5 year old, that’s not even it! He turns to his friend and laughs like he’s just proven himself or by making me feel like I can’t do something.
I watched Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them on Sunday and it was brilliant! I’m a huge Harry Potter fan and I think J.K. Rowling is genius. My favourite character is Queenie because she is so nice, caring, compassionate and she has the coolest power of Legilimency! This is when you can not only read people’s mind but also know their past and secrets.
I’m just glad that this week is over, I have no homework to do but I have to do some revision for my mock exams in January. I’ve also got offers from 4 universities now which is great! I hope you guys have been having a better week than I have, please comment below what you’ve been up to!
This week has actually been really good, mostly because I’ve been rewatching all the Harry Potter films with my younger cousins. This was their first time watching Harry Potter and it was great knowing that they love it as much as I do! We are watching the fifth movie: Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix right now so I hope they don’t cry too much when Sirius dies😢 I love Harry Potter so much and it was a great experience when I went to the Harry Potter studios and got a tour for FREE because I was doing work experience there. This year, I’m doing voluntary work at a local primary school.
I am nearly finished with my personal statement and UCAS application which is due for mid November so, I still have some time to finish that off. I’ve completed a lot of my courswork for media studies and I’ve confirmed what I’m going to be doing for my practical production which is an opening sequence of a documentary about how the representation of ethnic minorities in the media has affected young people. I’m going to get my friends to be in it and ask my Aunty if she would allow me to interview her about the worries she has on how the media are representing black people and how this might affect her young daughters growing up. I am quite excited to start filming, I have 10 weeks to plan and shoot the production and then 9 weeks to edit it. I promise, when I’ve finished making the documentary opening, I’ll share it with you guys😁
I’ve been listening to a lot of Kanye West and Solange this week and I’m in love with Solange’s new songs ‘Don’t touch my hair’ and ‘Cranes in the sky’ which I might feature on Music Monday this week. I hope you guys have been having a good and productive week. Please comment what you’ve been up to and I’ll see you guys on Monday!
