• Chapter 6: "Sirius Black"

"So do you have a contraption, then?" he asked eagerly.

"A what?"

"A Muggle contraption!" Sirius cried. He looked almost manic now, his eyes wide and eager. He leaned forward hungrily. "With the rubber wheels and the noisy banging whirring things and the chairs inside that Muggles ride about in!"

or, Things I'd Like to Be Reincarnated As. Please note that this isn't being very serious.

  • Born into a family that might not be wealthy, but has enough money as to where they don't have to struggle too much. Hopefully learn good financial advice from the get-go.
  • Born into a family that isn't violent.
  • Born in a time where there isn't as much discrimination as there is now--maybe racism, sexism, homophobia, etc., doesn't even exist.
  • Born into a colony on Mars or some other planet.
  • Born into a spiritual family.

    • I would fly in and above the clouds, and be able to admire the sunrise in a totally different way.
    • I would use flying to visit various destinations, visit all the states, and maybe go to different countries (depending on how hard it is to fly long-distance).
    • I would fly to really tall trees and enjoy them, hide from the world.
  • talk to animals
  • breathe under water
    • I would dive into rivers and oceans and explore unmarked territory

  • I do typically drink at least one glass of water a day, but I would prefer to drink much more than that.
  • I start things and don't finish them--I want to be a lot better about that, and actually complete my projects.
  • Stop limiting myself or boxing myself in. Stop thinking that I can't do X because of Y.
    • Granted, I have gotten a lot better about this--but still.
  • Not working long enough, or at least as productive enough.
  • Not having a lot of patience with jobs just because it's not what I want to be doing. Because, y'know, things happen and we gotta work anyway.
  • Stop procrastinating so much--but again, I have gotten a good bit better than what I once was doing.
