If The 'Harry Potter' Cast Had Muggle College Majors

What major would our beloved characters choose in the muggle world?

Warner Brothers

Ever imagined what would all our beloved characters from Harry Potter would be doing if they were muggles like us? In the normal realm, all the characters would be going to regular colleges instead of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Based on the traits of their personalities as portrayed by J.K. Rowling, here is the list of college majors that would be fit the characters.

1. Harry Potter: Political science, criminal justice, law-related majors, sports

As everyone knows, Harry was born to be a leader and a hero who saves the world from the evil. Harry's significant traits that stand out throughout the series him being brave and courageous. Throughout the series, Harry has to make decisions and he knows what is right and what is wrong (for the most part). Harry becomes an auror in the end of series, which is the highest level of law enforcement.

2. Hermione Granger: Math, any science, pre-med, any research field

She is smart, studious, and hardworking. Granger's character is a know-it-all overachiever who can be annoying to the other classmates. She knows all the spells that are there to know which shows that she has a very strong memorization ability. She would be a perfect pre-med, biology, or really any science-related majors. Furthermore, she portrays immense skills in researching information from the library throughout the series which indicates that research is her thing.

3. Ronald Weasley: Marketing

Ron shows loyalty towards his friends and empathy throughout the series. Ron is trying to find who he is. His character develops through time as he matures towards the end. He is no longer just a sidekick, and he takes on leadership towards the end as he leads the trio to find Horcruxes. He is very good at chess that shows that he has a good strategic mind. I think he can do well in the business field.

4. Draco Malfoy: Business, chemistry, pharmacy

Draco has the ability to show no compassion and empathy. He gets good at advanced potions in the sixth book. He is competitive, cunning and smart. Draco would be a good fit for business-related majors where he could possibly become a good CEO. Also, he has a good understanding of chemistry as seen in potions class.

5. Ginny Weasley: Journalism, sports management

Ginny was also a quidditch player, and later on, she becomes the head Quidditch correspondent for the Daily Prophet. She possesses good leadership qualities, all of which make her responsible enough to be the head of journalism.

6. Neville Longbottom: Horticulture, plant science

Neville is a gifted student at herbology, which in the muggle world is mostly associated with horticulture or plant science. In the end, Neville becomes the professor of herbology, so it makes that in the muggle world he would definitely fit right in.

7. Luna Lovegood: Zoology, animal science, any creative or design major, natural history

In the series, Luna becomes a magizoologist (a wizarding naturalist) and takes care of the magical creatures. She also has a knack at artistic abilities where she creates a lion-shaped hat that roars and a flapping eagle hat. In muggle college majors, she would be great at design or something related to animals.

8. Fred Weasley and George Weasley: Business

Though they are not traditionally academic, the twins ARE clever. Both of them have an energetic personality, and they know how to talk to people. They were businessmen from the beginning when they started their own joke shop called as "Weasely & Weasely."

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

Bingeing a romantic comedy is always a good idea, and during this pandemic, these movies bring us one of the only elements of romance we can get. Through all the break-ups, obstacles, and struggles in our love lives, romantic comedies have always been there to make us laugh and keep us company while we cry.

While we love these movies for the beyond gorgeous male love interests, the female protagonists are still the ones we always remember. Although rom-coms are far from reality, it is always fun to imagine what our life would be like if a cinematic studio was behind our love life. So what does your favorite romantic comedies say about your dream guy?

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).
