Fangirling About My Favourite Things! ๐Ÿ™Œ

Hi everybody!!! ๐Ÿ‘‹

Today I’m gonna be ** fangirling ** about random things that I like!

Let’s begin! ๐Ÿ‘Œโœจ

Organising ๐Ÿ—’โœ

*screeeaaaamm* Organising is so fuun!!!! if you like it so much you should organise your drawer maya

It’s just grouping things togetherrr and it’s so satisfying and the end result is so prettyyy

I should really organise my bookshelf haha

Listening to podcasts ๐ŸŽง๐ŸŽถ

I mainly listen to one called Camp Half-Pod, it’s about the Percy Jackson books and it’s the only way homework is somewhat enjoyable.

I know I shouldn’t listen to them when Im doing homework because I’ll lose my focus but it’s just really nice to listen to someone talkinngg ahah

I mainly listen to podcasts when cleaning my room or revising ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Notes App โœจ

Woo hooo I use this almost everydayyy shoutout to the notes app its the bessssttt ๐Ÿ‘

well that was short

Books ๐Ÿ“š



Plants ๐Ÿชด

I don’t why but I really want a plant for some reason haha

Not a real one, I’d be really bad at taking care of it ahah (any plants reading, BEWARE) But a small, plastic one would be a really cute addition to my room (:

(I love these separators, too ๐Ÿ˜œ)

Okay, that’s all I have for today (because I’m running out of post ideas lol) bye bye everyone!!! *waves even though you cant see me*

1 Year Blogversary!!!!!

Hiiiii everyoneeee and welcome to my 1 year blogversaryyyyyy

is it blogversary or blogisversary?

Im so excitedddd ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ’•

I can’t believe that I’ve actually been blogging for a year! yo maya remember that time when you abandoned blogging for like six months  shut up maya

I dont actually have a very clear plan of what I’m doing, but I was thinking that I could look back on posts i made and milestones i reached, so lets start ^^

very abrupt lol

~First post~

In the middle of COVID-19, I had a completely random idea to start a harry potter blog, and literally the second I created a blog on WordPress, I started typing a post called ‘Harry Potter Music to Keep you Studying, Sleeping, Drawing and Relaxing‘, where I talked about a youtube channel called Ambient Worlds and tried to sound sophisticated and like an adult ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ

I guess it wasn’t that bad of a post, but compared to THIS post, I think I’ve definitely improved ๐Ÿ˜…

~First collab~

I’ve just spent a while reading some of my posts also trying to find a post to stop on and I found my first collab, which was with Maggie. It was really fun, although when Maggie introduced me to Canva, I made some… interesting designs, here’s my first sign off:

It’s… questionable? i hate it



When I got 50 followers, I decided to make an ‘assumptions about me’ post, and it was really fun to do! I didn’t expect to get so many assumptions!

And now I’ve just been looking at some assumptions I answered, and I read one that said: ‘you dislike star wars’ and I said that I’ve never watched it but i doubt theres any thing better than harry potter COUGH COUGH WELL MAYA I SEE YOU CLEARLY HAVENT READ PERCY JACKSON EIERBKVHERBNKELRB

*gaaasp* I found some wise adviceeeee in my posttt

If in doubt, consult Google.

Maya, 2021

actually you were pottahwand then  STOP INTERUPTINg ME  no

~100 followers//name reveal~

yayyy this was a fun but incredibly cringy postttt

i think thats literally the post summed up

*drops mic*

~*insert a bunch of random posts*~

*fast forward to this post*

Okay, that’s it for now!

See you next week!:)

New sign off, I really like it ^^

Edit: okay so i got a notification from wordpress that today (8th February) is my blogversary so \_(^^)_/

Hellooooo peopleeee

Today I’ll be using this spinny wheel the correct term is picker wheel, maya to find out what my Percy Jackson life would be like ๐Ÿ˜„

Note: My 1 year blogversary is on Monday, so there’ll be a post then and the usual friday post on the 18th (a week later) ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Hogwarts Pals! ~ The Crup

Pacing across the room, Gryffindor told himself, more than the others, determinedly,

“We’re going to go somewhere.”

“Forget about it,” said a person concealed behind a large book, “it’s raining, there’s no way we’re going out there.”

“You mean, there’s no way you’re going out there.” muttered Slytherin under his breath, smiling. Everybody went silent for a while, and all anyone could hear were the footsteps of Gryffindor and the soft pitter-pattering of the rain outside.

“Hey…” cried Hufflepuff excitedly, who had been staring out of the window, “I think I can see something! Guys, come here!” Slytherin and Gryffindor Apparated there immediately – Hufflepuff had a good eye; this was gonna be interesting. Ravenclaw, however, stubbornly remained in her seat and continued reading.

“Aww, come on Raven… please?” Hufflepuff whined.

“I… I think there’s a kitten out there!” Slytherin added quickly. Ravenclaw looked up from her book. She had a soft spot for cats.

“Fine,” she groaned (Hufflepuff yelled, ‘YAY!’), “let me see.” she added, with a stern look at everyone. She trudged away from the comfortable chair and tempting book, and Apparated to the windowsill.

“Hmm… there definitely is something out there. But, Hufflepuff, are you sure it isn’t a- a plastic bag or something?” she spluttered. Hufflepuff’s face shone with tears.

“B-but what if it is an animal? It’ll be freezing cold, and it might die without our help! Right, Gryffindor, Slytherin?”

“Of course! Don’t worry, I’ll go and check it out!” Gryffindor told them reassuringly.

“You idiot, it’s pouring cats and dogs out there! You stay outside for ten seconds, and see how wet you are,” Slytherin replied scathingly, “but if you really want to…”

“I do. And, anyways, Ravenclaw’s learned nearly all the spells in that book of her’s! She can dry me off! Won’t you?” Gryffindor added with a meaningful look at Ravenclaw.

With a flattered sigh, she replied, “Fine..

A puff of smoke appeared where Gryffindor was standing, and a figure appeared outside the house. He had Disapparated. The figure moved closer to a small creature, picked it up, and cradled it. It seemed to be a miracle that the creature recieved any warmth from him at all – the rain was lashing out now, buckets of water seemed to be pouring down on them.

“I- I’m back,” a shivering Gryffindor told them a few moments later, “we saw a Crup. there he is, see?” a small, bundle of damp fur was laying in front of the fire, feebly stirring. “He was unconcious when I found him, but he’ll be okay. Some love, care, and… guys, I think we should keep him for now..?”

Hufflepuff’s immediate response was ‘YES!’, and she started to repeatedly ask Slytherin if he’d agree.

“Sly, please, he’s so cute!!!”

“I’ll have a think about it.”

“Please, pretty please, I’ll take him out every day, I promise!”

“I SAID I’D THINK ABOUT IT!” yet the smile on his face was enough to tell that he was all for it. Ravenclaw, however, was lost in thought, stationary.

“Well,” she began, “we could, technically take him in. But… he might not be ours. Also, we have to have his tail removed, or the Muggles will start asking questions.”

“So… yes?” whispered Hufflepuff, red in the face with excitment.

“Not yes, not maybe. We’ll start putting up posters in Diagon Alley, but for the meantime, we can keep him, until the owners- I mean, unless he’s someone’s pet.” Ravenclaw added hastily.

“YAY!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH, RAVEN!!!” Hufflepuff hugged her tightly, and then hugged everybody else- she didn’t want to leave anyone out.

The next morning came suddenly, and the garden showed no sign of being tossed around repeatedly in the rain throughout the night. Everyone was awoken by the combined loud barks of the Crup and the yells of Hufflepuff.


All three friends Apparated to the kitchen, where Hufflepuff was playing with the Crup.

“Meet Philip!” she squeaked with excitement.

Philip? You really couldn’t think of anything better than- OI!” Gryffindor had clapped his hand over Slytherin’s mouth.

“Shut up!” he hissed, “Anyway,” he said a little loudly, “who’s gonna remove Philip’s tail?”

“I can.” Ravenclaw said coolly, “Let’s see… Diffindo!” she waved her wand in the air and the Crup’s forked tail was gone- instead he looked like a normal, Jack Russel terrier.

Heyyyyy people!!!!!

Sooo, baaaaaaasically, yay I think I found a substitute for aaaaaaaanyways I wrote this a while ago, and I had this * v i s i o n * that I’d make this * s e r i e s * that was * r e a l l y c o o l * yeah right

Uhm, long story short, I didn’t really like it after reading it, so I just abandoned it there in my drafts ๐Ÿ˜›

Absolute * a g e s * later, I thought that since I didn’t have any motivation to write a post, then why not just write an easy short afterthought thingymajig, and then * v o i l a ! * I wouldn’t have to work too hard! sorry for being lazy heh heh

I dunno, I’ve just been pret-tty unmotivated and I’ve just not really been into blogging. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Buuut I feel a lot better now!

or maybe its just my mood-

I think I just need a break ๐Ÿ˜…

Sooo, I’ll be taking a posting break next week! ^^

I’ll still be active with replying to comments and reading posts, but I won’t post.

It’ll only be for a week, though, so… dOn’T mISs mE ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ’… yeah right hEH

Also, I won’t be able to reply to comments or read any posts today or on the weekend, because I’m bUsY *cough i mentioned it near the end of my wrap up post heh*

*im so excited but so nervous but so scared what-*

Anyways, I hope you dont mind me just c a s u a l l y ending this post really randomly ๐Ÿ˜


random burst of p o s i t i v e

super old sign off ๐Ÿ‘

Oh, and I mighhhht do another Hogwarts Pals, buuuut I’m not sure, heh ๐Ÿ˜…

Ohh, also, a crup is a dog that looks like a Jack Russel terrier except for it’s two tails, that’s why Ravenclaw had to cut it off with a (painless) severing charm :] (so any muggles wouldnt notice) ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hey y’all!

Yes I was running out of ideas and yes I know it was a stupid idea to do this post

You do not know how much motivation I needed to take those pictures and put them in this post ๐Ÿคก

To be real with you, I just don’t have that much motivation for blogging right now :,)

woah that sounds like im planning to leave, let’s * l i g h t e n * up the atmosphere gawsh maya you are a drama queen

not as much as sIrIuS BlACk “mY hAiR”

take note that im in a mood for no reason and im listening to bohemian rhapsody and simultaneously having a party in my head, im not this bad usually-

Goodbye for today! ๐Ÿ‘‹

well that was abrupt-

i really gotta make a post where i just talk to that one voice in my brain

y’know, the one thats taking over the post right now

still abrupt maya-

Emotional Poems! ๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿ’•

Heyyy everybodyyy! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ‘‹

Todayyy, I’m doing some poems! Three, to be exact.

Now, these aren’t actual uhm, emotional poems. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ Nah… I’m pretty new to poem writing. I don’t trust myself to not embarrass myself. That… doesn’t make sense, Maya. ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ

Aaaaanyways, let’s start! ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ’•

Joy! ๐ŸŒŸโœจ

That leaping feeling, hidden away most of the time
Overshadowed by others who deem themselves better, and more commonly used
In the rare times it comes out of its home
I revel in it and rejoice
The world is joyful
Peace among the nations
No dying, no fading away
No hurting, no pain
Only joy.
Joy, and me.
Me and joy.
Twirling around in our own little world.
Oblivious to anything else.

Grief ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿฅ€

It blurs my vision, forcing me to see the bad, and only the bad in the world
It trips me up and pushes me into deep pits of sadness, anger and pain
It whispers in my ear anywhere and everywhere,
They’re gone, somewhere where you can’t retrieve them.
It hurts to meet, and I love the moments when it dulls
And though it may leave, for however long,
I always dread it coming back, swallowing another thing I love.

Fear ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ‘ป๐Ÿ‘พ

My heart skips a beat.
Is that creaking what it should be?
Or is it a monster?
That one from my dreams.
People tell me that it can’t be true.
But in the dead of the night,
I hear sounds.
Sounds no walking or dropping could imitate.
They come from my wardrobe.
The one at the back of my room.
The door opens.
I am faced with my greatest fear.

Well! I hate to end the post on such a spooky you wish, Maya ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ note, but it’s time to go for now. ๐Ÿ’– I’ll see you next time on the 27th! (Or… nearer? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ mYsTeRyyyy)


Thank You for 100 Followers!!! || NAME REVEALLLLL || RANDOM THINGS ๐ŸŒป






Wait, wait, wait! CUT! THIS IS NOT HOW WE START THE POST! ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ

Wow, how awkward is this I can’t wait to see the look on my face when I read this a year later ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘€ Shame I can’t teleport a camera into the future so I can see what I look like ๐Ÿ˜•

Aaaaaaanyways, welcome, everyone! ๐Ÿ‘‹ How are you today?

So, y’all know what you’re here for. Prepare for… uhm, quite a lot of things. This might as well be called an explosion of cringyness. Yippee. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘„๐Ÿ‘

Okay then, let’s JUMP INTO THE POOOOST!! ๐Ÿฆ˜ Y’get it? Kangaroos jump and- no, I’ll spare my future self and not be cringy in this exact moment in history. Oh, whoops. Just embarrased myself. ๐Ÿ™‚ Great.

Thank you, everyone!

No, really, I want to thank you all for what you’ve done for me.

This blog has LITERALLY changed my life.

Blogging is now one of my great passions, and when I read your beautiful comments, I can’t help smiling. I will forever remember the day when little PottahWand decided to start a blog. Even if I ended up changing the whole blog topic early on, it doesn’t matter. I tried. I changed, and I’m still here!

Okay, this is getting pretty sentimental, but one last thank you to YOU. You might not be following my blog, but I don’t care. The fact that you actually went onto this blog is pretty amazing. I’m very proud of this small patchwork of the big blanket that is the internet. Wow, a metaphor. My teacher would be proud. ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Peace. โœŒ๏ธ

Alrighhhhht! That’s my very short thank you- uhh piece of this post? I dunno. ๐Ÿ˜‚


Yeah, I’m really leaving my name reveal till last. But, wait, don’t scroll down yet! Unless you passionately hate cringiness, weirdness, and randomness. Oh, and I can’t forget about craziness, of course! Well, if you hate any of those things, then spare yourself and scroll down. *nods sadly* ๐Ÿ˜”


wow, I’m really getting hyped, aren’t i?





*googles some jokes because I’m not original*

Oooh, here’s a good one!

What do you call a blind dinosaur? *expectant waiting*




A prince was put under a spell so that he could speak only one word each year. If he didnโ€™t speak for two years, the following year he could speak two words and so on.

One day, he fell in love with a beautiful lady. He refrained from speaking for two whole years so he could call her โ€œmy darling.โ€ But then he wanted to tell her he loved her, so he waited three more years.  At the end of these five years, he wanted to ask her to marry him, so he waited another four years. 

Finally, as the ninth year of silence ended, he led the lady to the most romantic place in the kingdom and said, โ€œMy darling, I love you! Will you marry me?โ€ 

And the lady said, โ€œPardon?โ€






It’s time.

The big one.


No, don’t worry, I’m not gunna annoy you guys for long, just OOOONE last thing until my name reveal. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘…๐Ÿ‘

Why do books and movies have to rip out our hearts and tear them into a million pieces? Lets face it- we were all rooting for Carl and Ellie. ๐Ÿฅบ

NOOOOOOOOOO ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ






Alright, it’s time, y’all.

It’s my name reveal.


Wow, I’m so sorry I had to end your sorrow and tears for Carl and Ellie with this abrupt notice.




































My name is…
























My name’s Maya. ๐Ÿ˜

Yep. That’s the truth.

Heh heh. ๐Ÿ˜…

In case anyone pronounces it wrong (don’t worry, it’s happened a lot. ๐Ÿ˜‚) then, my name pronunciation in Ma-yuh, not May-a.

I’ve seen a few others Mayas in the blogosphere, so you guys can still call me PottahWand. To be honest, it’s grown on me. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Soooo… yep, that’s it! You know my name, you know that I’ve gone crazy but to be honest I’ve been crazy for most of my life aand you know that it’s, sadly, the end of the post! ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

I’ll see ya soon, guys! โค

Hopefully I’ll have stopped being so irrational and random by then…

Thank you to Eesh for making this sign-off for me! ๐Ÿ˜

New Schedule! (REALLY- NOT THIS AGAIN ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ)

Hey, guys!

I guess you can see what’s happening here. ๐Ÿ˜…

I’ve got a nEw sCHeDuLe! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

How eXcItIng is that? ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Haha, sorry, I just gotta. ๐Ÿ˜œ

This is like- my 4th schedule post?! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Aaaanyways, let’s get to the ACTUAL thing. ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ

My new schedule will be Friday. ๐Ÿ—“

As much as I LOVE posting twice a week, it’s kinda hard, and I spend quite a lot of time reading your guys’ posts. No complaints there – your posts are amazing! ๐Ÿคฉ And, well it’ll be easier if I only have to write one post each week. โœ๐Ÿ’ป

But, occasionally, I will post a proper post along with my regular Friday posts ๐Ÿ˜‰, since I don’t really want to make you guys wait a whole week for my AMAZING haha, sarcasm ๐Ÿ˜ƒ posts.

Okay, then. See you guys on Friday! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ˜Œ

Wow, I haven’t used this one in ages. nostalgia

Harry Potter Themed Wallpapers! (Ipad/Phone)

C’mon, you KNOW I had to make this post.

What an unceremonious opening. Well done to me.

Hello everyone!

Today, I’ve decided to make an easy post, and let myself pore over millions of Harry Potter wallpapers. Also, I’ll have to only put 6 (I was going to do 5, but then I saw this really cool Ravenclaw wallpaper that I thought I just HAD to include) wallpapers down per category, otherwise this post would be WAY too long.

It probably will be way too long, anyway.

I’m going to put this into a few categories, because I’m like that.

Ze Categories:

  • Ravenclaw
  • Slytherin
  • Gryffindor
  • Hufflepuff
  • Quotes

Okay! Let’s get started!
