goin' back to hogwarts

My life literally revolves around the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows premiere today. It's my friend Dru's birthday -- so, naturally, we're all going to see HP7 at the midnight showing and most of us are getting our costume on (that's my Hogwarts uniform in the picture up there!). To top it all off, I'm running a Harry Potter-palooza Party at the library today, and let me just tell you about what we've got going on: Quidditch tryouts. Wand-making at Ollivander's Wand Shop. Potion-brewing in Snape's Potions class. Getting sorted by the Sorting hat. Every Flavor Beans. Chocolate Frogs. Butterbeer. DIVINATION FOR REALS. 

I'm just saying, if I were a 4th grader, I think my mind would be blown. I'm just saying. 

Here's a sign I made for Sorting station:

I sorted myself just to be sure the Sorting activity worked, but I didn't need to. I get the same result every time:

The first few times, I was really mad because I thought Ravenclaw was super lame and I wanted to be in Slytherin. But I finally accepted my fate. Ravenclaws get shit done, okay? Check out what the Sorting Hat says about us:


You can bet that if I were in Gryffindor, none of this Harry Potter Party would even be happening, because instead of busting my butt getting everything organized and set up, I'd be running recklessly into dangerous situations just because Dumbledore asked me to. BURN.

And thus ends the dorkiest post I've ever written. 



  1. Ha! This post is amazing...I love your uniform. I hope we see pictures on the blog....


    Jen also gets Ravenclaw every time and I get Hufflepuff every time. And ya know what? I thought Hufflepuff was laaame, but I've learned to accept my fate and be a proud Puff. YEAH.

    I want to come to your party. *cries* WHY CAN'T YOU LIVE CLOSER?!?!?!?!?!?

  3. I like to think of myself as a Ravenclaw, but I've gotten Gryffindor and Hufflepuff on quizzes as well. The first time I got Hufflepuff, I was offended... but I then realized that I'm actually pretty proud of some of my Hufflepuffian characteristics... and now I haven't gotten Hufflepuff since.

    Whenever I get Gryffindor, I assume the test is rigged. I'm not brave. At all.

  4. In fact, I tought I would be best at Slythering too. But the result, doens't matter wicht text I do, always says Ravenclaw. So I just accept my destiny. And... it doesn't really means that we don't have some slytherin cunnig inside ourselfs!
