“You might have got the impression that there is a little bit more to Aunt Petunia than meets the eye, and you will find out what it is. She is not a squib, although that is a very good guess. Oh, I am giving a lot away here. I am being shockingly indiscreet." - J.K. Rowling.
If the reveal had been that Petunia was a witch ~ Several years after the war, Harry tracks his aunt down to confront her with what he witnessed in the pensieve.

Tutorial: how to make a study schedule.
- Make a reference sheet with separate lists for each subject. This reference sheet is used to orient your daily studying.
- List the material you need to study for each subject. Be more specific than you would be on a study schedule and make sure you put down everything you need to go over.
- On your schedule, highlight the exam dates and deadlines and put down any relevant information.
- Using your reference sheet, assign certain material to go through each day.
- If you haven’t been working on study material throughout the semester; schedule days before your study leave to work on study sheets for revision, flash cards, summaries, whatever you use to study.
- Take a day to gather your study material before your study leave begins. Like the weekend classes end or so. This will save you a lot of time when you sit down to study every day.
- Schedule your studying so that you start studying for the last final first, and the first final last. Make sure you start this early enough to give yourself time to revise for the subjects you need to.
- If you have a day between each of your finals, take the night of the final off and revise for the next exam the day after. If not, take the couple of hours after your exam off then revise for the next one.
- Schedule the harder/heavier material in a subject first, so that you work on that material when you have more energy.
- If you’re taking subjects that you have difficulty with, or subjects with a heavy workload; schedule catch up days. However, don’t let that encourage you to slack off. Try to stick to your schedule and only rely on the catch up days if you really need to, and if you don’t; then it’s a day off!
- Also, schedule days off… a day or if you can’t afford it, half a day. I can’t stress how important it is to take time for yourself, it’ll help you avoid burnout.
Disclaimer: this is the way I’ve been making study schedules since I started college. By no means am I claiming it’s perfect or that everybody should follow it.
I’m sorry I’m posting this by the end of the year when a lot of people are already done with exams, but perhaps it’ll be helpful for people taking summer courses now? And also for next year :)
One of my New Year’s resolution is to clean out my closet. I thought it would be helpful to research the best ways of making money from your unwanted clothing. There are many resale websites out there, but not every site is popular enough to help sell your clothes quick. So here are my top recommended websites where you can resale your unwanted clothes, accessories, shoes, etc:
- Tradesy - They take only 9% commission. They will pay for shipping and returns. If you plan on shopping there, you can save $25 OFF your purchase of $100 when you sign up here.
- eBay - They take 10% and any additional listing fees. You can list 50 sales per month for free. If you’re looking to sell men’s clothes, this site would be best compared to the others listed.
- Threadflip - They take 20% commission. You can have the buyer pay for shipping. They also have a smartphone app. You’ll receive FREE $5 store credit automatically if you sign up here (Limited to only the first 10 people).
- Poshmark - They take 20% commission but you don’t have to pay for shipping. Their smartphone app is popular. If you sign up through the phone app and use the invite code: BHXPR, you’ll receive FREE $5 store credit (Limited to only the first 10 people)
- Vinted - They take 19% commission. You can buy, sell, or swap your clothing. They also have a smartphone app.
- Storenvy - Completely free with no listing fees. The downside is that you will have to do your own marketing with this website since their marketplace is overwhelmed with millions of products. So even though it’s free, it may be harder to sell your clothes if you don’t do well on promoting your own shop.
If you’d rather not deal with all the work it takes to sell your own items, you should consider the recommendations below. All you have to do is send your unwanted clothes and shoes to these places for FREE. Then they will sell your items for you. With this you will get less money than if you would sell them yourself, but you don’t have to do anything. So it will save you time and effort.
- Thredup - This is my favorite online thrift store. You will get 10-40% commission on how much your clothes sell for. There is a calculator for you to get an idea on how much you’d earn. Thredup also accept kids clothing. So if you have younger siblings who have outgrown their clothes, this is a great option. You can also get $20 off to spend when you sign up for a new account here.
- Twice - This is limited to only high end brands. They give you an offer to buy the clothes you send to them. There is a calculator on their website so that you can get an idea of how much your clothes are worth. You can get a FREE $10 Bonus on top of your first sale when you sign up here. Or you can receive $20 worth of FREE clothes here.
- Local consignment shops - A few chains are Plato’s Closet, Crossroads Trading, Second Time Around, Buffalo Exchange and Beacon’s Closet. There are many other small local shops as well. So you’ll have to research based on your location.
And of course, you can always donate your unwanted clothes to charity. I hope this post was helpful. Feel free to reblog this post and add your resale sites if you have one so we can all check them out :) Good luck on your New Year’s resolutions!
