Hogwarts

School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

Life Challenge

 

Here's the basic plan:

I've 'mapped' the Hogwarts school subjects to categories of life goals. For each challenge, I will choose at least three of these to work on; one has to be related to fitness, one to food/diet, and one to other life goals. As I progress in these challenges, I will then have a chance to earn OWLs and NEWTs in each subject, by completing a major milestone.

(To see how I've mapped the subjects to life goals, open the spoiler)

Spoiler

Food

  • Herbology: clean eating
  • Potions: cooking

Fitness

  • Flying: running 5k
  • Transfiguration: warrior-y things (weight training, etc.)
  • Defence Against the Dark Arts: druid-y things (yoga, meditation, etc.)
  • Apparition: scout-y things (running, swimming, walking, etc.)
  • Quidditch: adventure-y things + sports (tennis, hiking, adventuring, etc.)

Life

  • Charms: sleep habits
  • Magical Theory: reading + self-help
  • Astronomy: performance (singing, theatre, magic, etc.)
  • Ancient Runes: writing
  • Muggle Studies: travel (+ photography)
  • Alchemy: finances
  • Care of Magical Creatures: charity and giving
  • Divination: My Epic Quest

Career/PhD

  • History of Magic: writing, reading, background research
  • Arithmancy: numbers, researching my text (qualitative or quantitative), spending time in the office

 

Challenge #1

For my first Hogwarts challenge, I shall be learning to fly! That, plus some Potions and some Charms.

Since the clocks changed on Sunday of last week, it's been pretty easy getting up on time. But I have been feeling poorly all week—mild stomach-aches and general yuckiness—which I've been using as an excuse to eat out (or in, as the case may be) and to skip running. I did cook yesterday, so this week is already off to a better start Potions-wise, and I'm planning to run tomorrow for sure. I figure if I can force myself to do it at least once, then it will become easier to maintain.
