I have been on quite the magical high after having watched the first two episodes of The Magicians. I felt the same way with the Chronicles of Narnia, when I wanted to climb through a magical wardrobe into another realm/fantasy land. I wanted to make my way to Platform 9 and 3/4 to hop aboard the Hogwarts Express.
Now I just want to attend Brakebills University, and learn how to produce magic with my fingertips with magic-minded folks like me. Well, guess what, you crazy, want to be magicians? You can, in a pretend sort of way, the same as when we tried on that fictional sorting hat, to see which house we would reside in at Hogwarts.
Fortunately, or unfortunately (as the case may be) an entrance exam is required to be accepted into Brakebills. They say tests aren’t painful, but tell that to a few of my fellow ex-paralegal students, because those tests were brutal! How hard can a test of my magical aptitude be if I aced a final in criminal law huh?
Well, apparently I am better at taking tests aimed more towards a law degree, rather than a magical one, because I flunked. Fortunately,and maybe miraculously, I was still accepted into Brakebills U, go me!! My acceptance letter was quite entertaining!
Despite the fact that I flunked, I have my first lessons next Tuesday, and I am looking forward to it. I was going to be sneaky, and try to take the first lessons early, but I figure I might already be on thin ice with the Dean! I think I will have as much fun at this university, as I did at my Alma Mater.
We had a mock civil litigation trial, and we prepared a last Will and Testament, so I’m down for a little Hocus Pocus! Yes, I know to be careful because “magic always comes with a price dearie”. Did you see what I did there? Of course you did, if you are a fan of another magical show!
If you want to take the exam to see if you have what it takes to attend Brakebills University, just click on this very magical link to see if you are accepted or not! Sound off in the comments below to let me know if you passed or failed the exam. Will I see you on Tuesday for our first lessons?
