Mid-Month O.W.L. Check-In

bridgeIts Monday again–fancy that! So is it just me…I can’t help but hear pink frog lady Umbridge at the chalkboard spell out “O-W-L’s!” every time I write it out somewhere?! lol It makes me giggle but cringe all at the same time. Its amazing how she is almost a worse villain than Voldemort. She is just awful! I have heard people say they will never forgive J.K. Rowling for writing such a terrible character. I don’t know that I take it that far but she is absolutely dreadful. Anyway, back on topic.

We’re halfway through April (yikes!) so I figured that this would be a good time to check in regarding my progress in my O.W.L. exams! I chose 3 careers as a lofty goal for myself. I’ll be really happy if I fulfill a full one of them. But we’ll see. Never say never! My first career goal is Curse Breaker and here is how that is shaping up:

Ancient Runes(Retelling) …. Brightly Burning
☑ Arithmancy(Book written by more than one author) …. Lumberjanes Vol. 1
☑ Charms(Adult book) …. Girl, Wash Your Face
☐ Defense Against the Dark Arts(Reducto: book starting with an ‘r’) …. The Raven’s Tale
Potions(Next in series) …. Darken the Stars
☐ Transfiguration(Sprayed edges or a red cover) …. The Hummingbird Dagger An Anonymous Girl

Progress = 2 completed, and 2 in progress out of 6 total
My second career aspiration is Aurologist, and my final goal was Seer. Here’s my listings (and lack of progress)for those:

Astronomy(‘Star’ in the title) …. Lost Stars
Divination(Set in the future) …. Watchmen
History of Magic(published at least 10 years ago) …. Pippi Longstocking

Ancient Runes(another retelling…I’m really not that into retellings) …. The Sleeper and the Spindle
Astronomy(‘Star’ in the title) …. The Chaos of Stars
Divination(Set in the future) …. V for Vendetta

Yeah…haven’t even started those. I did go so far as to pick a couple of them up from the library! Yay for me! But that’s about all I’ve got.

How is your O.W.L. progress coming? If you aren’t in the magical readathon, how is your April reading so far?
