      [Journal Entry] I'm Not a Fire Wizard

      One of the most highly anticipated initiation procedures when a student transfers to Ravenwood is deciding which school of magic they belong to. Ultimately, it is a choice to become a wizard of a particular magic. But some would say that it's more of an internal inclination or destiny itself that draws a person to a specific magic to be learned, rather than a choice.

      For me, I picked wrong. When I first came to Ravenwood, I was so consumed by the idea of practicing pyromancy. Simply put, I wanted to have fire powers. I wanted to be able to burn my enemies and have the ability to physically obliterate any opposing force that crosses paths with me. Fire to me meant being strong. It meant being passionate, and having a powerful voice, and playing a big role. But little did I know that these fantasies and imaginations I had in my head were all impractical and never going to happen.

      When the time came, I chose fire. It was a really easy decision for me to make at the time, and I remember thinking that it was the most obvious option. All of the other schools to me didn't interest me as much as fire did. Fire was the most entertaining to me, and that's what I wanted.

      After a few months of studying fire magic and learning how to cast a few spells, I realized that fire was not the school for me. Well, technically I didn't -- Professor Falmea did. Professor Falmea was great, don't get me wrong, but there was something that she said to me in a conversation we had over me failing an exam that really stuck with me. She told me something along the lines of "You demonstrate a great amount of effort, but aren't succeeding, likely because this school is not meant for you." I was obviously offended by this statement, especially because of how hard I had been working. She suggested that even though I was working hard, it wasn't enough to succeed in a school that I wasn't born to be apart of. She also mentioned that every year there are a few students who don't fit in with her fire classes and are sent back a year, and that it was totally normal. I asked her if leaving the fire school meant that I'd have to restart my learning cycle with the new incoming group of first-fear magic students. She told me that I would have to restart, but it would give me more time to decide which school I actually belonged to.

      Another reason why I was frustrated with having to be held back a year was because I thought I was at risk of being expelled from Ravenwood from failing the Introduction to Pyromancy 201 class. However, over a discussion I had with Headmaster Ambrose, I learned that it's actually super common for this to happen! This reassurance made me feel better. But what would I do for an entire semester while I waited for the new incoming group of first-year students to begin classes for a new term? Well, I took that time to discover which school I really was meant to be apart of! I practiced gardening, crafting, Monstrology, fishing, and made some friends.

      The next year, I had to attend orientation all over again with the new incoming students. I skipped a few of the orientation workshops since I had already been to them the year before. It was a really impactful learning experience for me. I guess the lesson I learned through this is that patience is key to enjoying life to the fullest!

      Thank you for taking the time to read this (I doubt anyone is). Have a great week!

      That was truly well written, and captivating.

      One must be true to one self, or regrets - like gravity - will pull at you all your life.
