Tip for all my student readers: if you’re too lazy to use a bibliography creator like NoodleBib or RefWorks, let Google generate your bibliography entries for you. All you have to do is google the article/book title in Google Scholar, click “cite” at the bottom of the search result, and copy either the MLA, APA, or Chicago cite into your word document. 

Signal boost because omg how did I not know this in college?

Since registration is starting soon I figure this is ample time to remind the six people who look at my Tumblr that citing your sources is really important in college and that this will be your best friend forever.

If you’re in high school and want to go to college? Learn to source! You’ll be way ahead of the curve and it’s 100% more important than knowing what the hell a predicate nominative is.

I use http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/ to figure out how to cite for my papers, and it’s been quite useful for the three years I’ve been at this!

i literally will always be mad about how the movies presented beauxbatons and durmstrang. i wanted snobby french boys rolling their eyes at hogwarts food and durmstrang girls in thick robes looking up in amazement at the great hall. harry potter is above this kind of sexist bullshit

Fun fact: according to Pottermore, JKR says that Durmstrang was founded by a woman. 

The movies should have stepped it up.
