  3. Family and Personal History: Breanna Trevelyan is a successful lawyer, who specializes in criminal law. She's a hard worker, since she came from a rather poor background, and had to work three jobs to get herself through university. She met her husband in a cafe where she worked at. George comes from a richer background and according to him, it was love at first sight (not so much for Breanna). He invited her for coffee and a beautiful relationship blossomed that day, much to the chagrin of George's parents, who wished for their son to become a renowned surgeon and marry a nice girl they picked for him. Only half of their wish came true. Maxim was born at home in Cardiff, Wales. By that time, George fulfilled his wish to become a surgeon and Brenna was employed by a rather big law firm. Then, George packed up his family and left for England after he was offered a job at Oxford. Once at the great university Mr. Trevelyan had begun his job as a professor. While at home, Maxim was being taught in etiquette by his mother and all other subjects that Breanna thought her son should know. When Maxim turned 11 years old, he received an odd letter. It was an acceptance letter to Hogwarts. His parents while taken by surprise, but embraced Maxim's new found ability with great gusto. George, especially, found his son's 'power' to be the coolest thing he'd ever seen. He'd even thought of Hogwarts as if his son was going to a superhero academy. Maxim has a very good heart. It is actually often that he does what his heart tells him to do, than what his brain says. It may be dangerous at times and foolish, but he tends to listen more to his heart. He's very caring and loving towards all living creatures and plants, though he usually has some clashes with people because of his clumsiness. Another Maxim's more pronounced characteristic is that he is very witty. He comes with small smart comments whenever he feels like it, and sometimes they tend to bring him in bad situations with older students or professors. That part of him is not very well-mannered. He's also a talker. He talks a lot and actually blabs about everything – even if he is in the company of a person, he does not like. The only time when he is quiet is when he is nervous, scared or sad. It rarely happens however, since Maxim is usually in a good mood. You can really call the boy naive. He is not only that, he is idealistic, and he believes that every problem in the world can be solved with love and friendship. Like most boys Maxim is very messy. His room is floating with books, dirty socks and clothes. He does not like to clean up and always delays this gruesome task until his mother tells him to do it with one of his death glares. His friends and family will always be a weakness for Maxim. He does everything he can to keep them safe and happy. He would willingly to risk his life for them if the situation called for it. To all of his closest friends, and people he is fond of, Maxim is fiercely protective. He has a code of conduct for himself. He's respectful of most people, especially women. He has a keen eye for details, he has a gift for remembering a person's normal gait, and notices when it's off. He's also very observant when he chooses to be. He has an ability to keep calm in situations that would have most other people hyperventilating. He does indeed feel fear in these situations, but he normally chooses to set that fear aside in such situations. Maxim is a little small for his age, but that doesn't stop him at his endeavors. He sports a slight tan, but most prominent are his freckles that adorn his face. He has blue eyes and blond, short and slightly curly hair. His build is athletic, mostly due to running around, playing all sorts of sports with his mates. When Maxim is off having adventures, he is dressed in comfortable, but functional clothing. The exact pieces depend on what he is doing, but mostly consist of think undergarments and socks, and then cotton short and long sleeved shirts and pants. He also carries extra pieces of clothing in his backpack, just in case he ever gets lost (and he does, sometimes). Maxim also never sets out without a survival kit that carries basic items such as first aid kit, matches and some other Muggle items.

  7. For me, I have a sticky notes tab on my computer that I always have open. I'll write down what I need to/want to do, both HOL and RL stuff in the order that I find would give me a good mix and then as I work through them in a day, I'll take little breaks to keep myself energized. Most of what I do, I can listen to music while I complete them which keeps my mind interested while I work. I'll also take little breaks to play a quick game.... which I probably shouldn't be doing when I have other things to do, but it does make for a nice break when I'm able to focus myself back on what I was doing. Even if I have an enormous stack of things I need to do, music is definitely something that keeps me from getting overwhelmed. Like Sky said, breaking things down into chunks helps a lot as well. I have an essay I'm working on now that I'm writing in little bits because writing is not something I personally enjoy when the topic doesn't interest me. I'll put on my sticky notes: 1. write paragraph one 2. something interesting 3. edit paragraph four 4. something interesting.... and on like that. I'll do that for pretty much any long task I have. It helps to keep me interested and motivated because I know what I have to do next and am able to realize that whatever I'm doing, I'll get a break soon.
  8. Duck (I think it's obvious, Dario , you need to update your signature to say 'Brought to you by Zee's inability to play Duck, Duck, Goose properly' for a week)
  9. New bedsheets. Yas. I'm thinking of something that has milk.
  10. I slap Dario for being a joy in my life.
