If 10 Hogwarts Professor's Taught Actual College Classes

Since most schools don't have magical creatures, Hagrid needed a new job.

A few nights ago I had a dream I walked into the new semester and all of my teachers were...my favorite professors from Hogwarts? A little weird, but how cool would it be if our beloved Harry Potter characters actually taught all of our classes? There's only one problem though, I don't think many Muggle universities offer Divination or Defence Against The Dark Arts in their curriculum. So what would our retired Hogwarts professors teach? Well, here's what I think.

1. Rubeus Hagrid (Care of Magical Creatures) - Zoology

Who better to teach students all about any animal there is than Hagrid? Students love him for his laid back nature and hands on approach. The more exotic the animal, the more exciting his lessons become, though he'll always have a soft spot for reptiles and arachnids.

2.Severus Snape (Potions and later DADA) - Entry level Chem

Still bitter about not landing the advanced chem gig, Snape just torments helpless students trying to get their science cred or basic chem out of the way. Hope you don't need a helping hand.

3. Horace Slughorn (Potions) - Advanced Chem

Since we don't brew potions here the next best thing, of course, is the Chemistry lab. Slughorn adores hard working students, he even hosts study parties always with snacks provided.

4. Cuthbert Binns (History of Magic) - World History

Basically, everyone just catches up on missed sleep during this lecture. Listening to the monotone voice of Professor Binns while he discusses the history of world powers is enough to make anyone feel dead inside.

5. Sybill Trelawney (Divination) - Philosophy

If you do not have the sight (into the nature of truth and knowledge) or at the very least an open mind then there's not much that Trelawney can do for you. Passionate and just a tad eccentric, her class sure is never boring.

6. Flitwick (Charms) - Public Speaking

Pronunciation is key, just ask Hermione Granger. Flitwick just wants to make sure you charm your way into the minds of your audience and deliver the best presentation possible. He also directs the school choir, what a busy man.

7. Charity Burbage (Muggle Studies) - Sociology

All Professor Burbage hopes for is for students to realize they're all not so different from one another. When she's not in the classroom you can also find her organizing students to help other in need. (Sorry to hit you in the feels, but this scene though, you were friends Severus!)

8. Pomona Sprout (Herbology) - Herbal Medicine

There might not be any mandrakes to burst your eardrums in her classroom, but there's definitely not a shortage of plants will all sort of medical purposes for nearly any ailment. The hipster students love her, something about not trusting modern medicine or something like that.

9. Remus Lupin (Defence Against The Dark Arts) - Mythology

Really now, who better to teach mythology than someone who Muggles themselves believe to be a myth? No one would ever suspect a thing, and students would love him for the occasional canceled class. (After a full moon of course.)

10. Minerva McGonagall (Transfiguration) - Academic Advisor

To the surprise of some, this professor decided to turn up her teaching hat when she arrived at college. Filled with knowledge and wisdom, transfiguring lost and wide eyed students into successful graduates is kind of her thing.

So, what classes would you sign up for this semester?

I will always love you, Akon.

Something happened today that I never thought in a million years would happen. I opened up a drawer at my parents' house and I found my pink, 4th generation iPod Nano. I had not seen this thing since I graduated from the 8th grade, and the headphones have not left my ears since I pulled it out of that drawer. It's funny to me how music can take you back. You listen to a song and suddenly you're wearing a pair of gauchos, sitting on the bleachers in a gym somewhere, avoiding boys at all cost at your seventh grade dance. So if you were around in 2007 and feel like reminiscing, here is a playlist straight from the iPod of a middle schooler in 2007.

Warcraft 3: Reforged - A legend returns

One of the top 100 games of the century makes a comeback in an epic way.

17 years ago, the legion invaded the realm of Azeroth, forcing the different races of Humans, Orcs, Night elves, and Undead to make the most unlikely of alliances. There were those who fought for the light while the others wished to banish it. Night and day, the furnaces of Lordaeron burnt bright as the loyal dwarves of Khaz Modan hammer away the swords and shields that would aid the fight ahead.

17 years ago, the young orc warchief Thrall foresaw the fate of his people as meteors of green flames crash upon his lands. He saw the upcoming demise of his clanand ordered a mass evacuation towards a new continent where they shall be safe for generations to come. 17 years ago, the night elves felt a corruption within the Tree of Life, causing them to split into opposing factions: one fought in the name of the Goddess, while the other fought in the name of personal hatred. 17 years ago, a legion of undead came upon the shores of Lordaeron, plaguing the land and defiling the life force of the realm. That was the story of Warcraft, one that spanned continents and races only to join them together for a crucial battle of their history.

Warcraft was a monument to an entire gaming generation, ranked 2nd best game of all time by German games magazine "GameStar." Its fate, however, was ultimately sealed as computing technology became better and overshadowed the old giant. Plus, with the rise of gaming consoles and handheld gaming devices, PC gaming lost its appeal slowly, and games like Starcraft or Warcraft eventually faded into oblivion.

But over on the horizon, Blizzard Entertainment came to the rescue. Following the success of their previous release of Starcraft: Remastered, they decided to come forth with their next great project: remastering Warcraft 3.

Using a new and revamped engine built over the foundations of the old one, they have rebuilt the world we once loved. Adding to that are new, high definition voices and sound effects that they recorded just for this old game. For the blurry characters of old, the team decided to upscale and remodel all present units to give them the 2019 high-def treatment they deserved. For the old user interface (UI), the development team settled on one that resembled the "Starcraft: Remastered" interface, offering more room for players to look at the gorgeous 4K character models. Also, to fit the new continuity from World of Warcraft, Blizzard opted to alter the story by a small margin, showing promising changes to the revived game.

However, not everyone was hyped when the game was announced. Many gamers expressed disappointment at Blizzard's move of remastering old games instead of developing new ones. Many, feeling uncomfortable at the company's decision, took to the internet and into forums. Some fans expressed concerns over Blizzard's decision to retcon a game they hold dear Some are unhappy with the graphics not being consistent with characters: unit models look too detailed while buildings look cartoonish.

Despite all this, the general population loved the announcement at Blizzcon. As the game slowly reaches its release date of December 31, 2019, the hype can only go up from here. For those of us who can't hold their excitement, here's a video of the crowd's insane reaction to the announcement:
