Real Talk

I am a young women. I am described as skinny but I have rolls and areas of myself i’m not happy with. We all have areas of ourselves that we don’t like. I don’t like the fat on my hips or my stomach or my thighs.

However, I love myself. Rolls and everything else I am still me, my body is still mine. I have stretchmarks and scars but it shows my life and what I’ve been through.

I don’t want to have a daughter that grows up to hate herself and her body because our society tells them to.

You are perfect! No matter how big or small, how short or tall, what colour hair or eyes you have. You are unique and are the best you that you can be.

Wizard money in the real world

Wizard money

1 galleon (gold) = 17 sickles

1 galleon = 493 knuts (bronze)

1 sickle (silver)= 29 knuts

English money

1 pound = 100 pennies

American money

1 dollar = 100 cents

1 penny = 1 cent

Nickel = 5 cents

Dime = 10 cents

Quarter = 25 cents

Both English and American money are fairly similar in the sense that it is mainly in 1s, 5s and 10s. Wizard money doesn’t follow in the same pattern.

England follows the metric system now but before 1971 England followed the imperial system. That meant that money looked like the below.

1 pound = 20 Shillings

1 shilling = 12 pennies

5 shillings = 1 crown

1 penny = 2 half pennies

1 penny = 4 farthings (quarter pennies)

This system starts to look more like the wizard currency. This may mean that the wizarding world is still in their imperial system for money.

On the back of the two books J.K Rowling wrote for comic relief, ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to find them’ and ‘Quidditch through the ages’ which was shown as £4.99 or 1 galleon, 11 sickles and $3.99 or 14 sickles, 3 knuts. This was in the original uk released books.

Wizard money to English money

1 galleon = £4.93

1 sickle = £0.29

1 knut = £0.01

Wizard money to American money

1 galleon = $6.64

1 sickle = $0.39

1 knut = $0.01

(Conversions from wizard money to American and English money came from here )

Wizarding money in America is called Dragot and Sprink but instead of confusing things I’ll stick with the English wizarding currency for this post.

English wizarding money seems to be a sort of spoof on the imperial English money system.

Hiatus

Hello. If anyone was wondering where I was for last month and a bit I’ve been dealing with the death of my grandfather and moving house. I’ll be carrying on posting again and hopefully I will be more organised with my posts and they will become more regular again.

Thank you to everyone who continues to read my posts and follow my blog. I really appreciate it and hope that you enjoy more of the posts going forward.
