Quote of the Week:

“It is a mistake to think that the practice of my art has become easy to me. I assure you, dear friend, no one has given so much care to the study of composition as I. There is scarcely a famous master in music whose works I have not frequently and diligently studied.” -Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

(I keep this in mind as I write and rewrite and research and reread my literature reviews, essays and discussion posts. Some things, well, they just take diligent study of how others made it work before you can make it work.)

This week I rejected any course work which was not the (absolute) bare minimum, choosing instead to extend my own Fall Break.  For the record: I would not recommend this strategy to others.
So, if you’re like me and looking for a way to enter back into the world of academia (which remains both terrifying and compelling), go for a walk. It’s (finally) Fall and everything is turning yellow and red and that brown color of deer. Organize your thoughts while in motion to once again enter the world as a student who does their homework regularly (which is a state of being I would recommend).

See? This color brown. It's a very particular shade. (Photo from

Save the Date:
Friday, October 28th

-CAT Films: Scare-a-thon

To the wizarding world of Villanova:
Tonight in the library, from 4:00-6:00 p.m., there will be a dramatic reading of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child which will serve to kickoff the WEEK LONG HARRY POTTER SCAVENGER HUNT. After assembling a #squad, you and your fellow seekers will collect points to be counted the following Monday, October, 31st (Halloween!), at YET ANOTHER HARRY POTTER EVENT IN THE LIBRARY.
As for tonight (one step at a time, folks), there will be pizza and butterbeer and trivia and at least one ravenclaw in attendance (hint: it’s me). Follow NovaSeekers on instagram to keep up to date and also for cute pictures of owls. Happy hunting!
