Harry Potter

So Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is 20 years old……………..

20 Years of Magic

 

Can you believe that Harry Potter and the Sorcerers’ Stone/ Philosopher’s Stone is 20 years old?? Me either. Because that means I am getting older. I was 7 when the first book came out and probably got it that summer for my birthday. ( I am not entirely sure when I got it because since then Harry Potter has been as much of my life as watching NCIS) Since then I have found my literary doppelganger – Hermione, who also showed girls that it is ok to be the smart one. I know I went to at least one midnight release party for a book and saw one movie the day it came out. I watch at least one of the movies when they are on Freeform/ ABC Family. I am part of the Harry Potter Generation, No shame whatsoever in saying that. The hashtags alone tell you how well loved this series is; #HarryPotterForever #20yearsofMagic #HarryPotter20

Not to mention countless fan Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram accounts that help us to live the magic – because it will never really end.

Thank you, JK Rowling, for writing a series that would help me get through some tough stuff over the years and  for showing me its ok to be a smart girl.

Since its this big anniversary they are reprinting the books but this time in house colors. I already ordered mine and am waiting for it comes. I got a Ravenclaw Blue and Gold hardcover coming and may get a Slytherin one because that’s the other house I got sorted into on Pottermore. Also on Pottermore, they launched a worldwide book club that is going to go through all 7 books and talk about major themes in each over a Twitter chat by @wwbookclub, with the first one today (Friday) at 4 pm BST, which is 11 pm EST. The first topic is Muggles and the magical world.

‘“I hope you’re pleased with yourselves. We could all have been killed – or worse, expelled. Now, if you don’t mind, I’m going to bed.”’

Harry Potter was and will continue to be a big part of my life and many other millennials . PS I hate the word Millennials and how it stereotype’s us. That is a post for another day though.

To Inspire 
To Remind 
Describe Me 

To Remind

To remind to that I am my own worst enemy. Its not others who have a tendency to question your ability, It is yourself. So stop overthinking it , second guessing yourself and just do it. 

To Inspire Me
Its easy to forget this and judge people prematurely not only that we all have days in which we all believe we are bad, But we must remember we are what we decide to act on. 

Describes Me
INTJ , Me in a nutshell,

Blogtember Challenge- Guilty Pleasures or, #RepublicanGirlProblems

My guilty Pleasure is easily Lilly Pulitzer, even though I  only buy it on sale.  And by sale I mean at her twice yearly #afterpartysale. I love it because it is so nice cherry and bright. It just makes me happy when I wear it. And her clothes are so comfortable and fit me perfectly and I don’t have to hem them, which is a blessing because I am 4’11” so lots of stuff doesn’t fit off the rack

Told ya I have a Tusk In the Sun Obsession. I also have the 2015-2016 agenda. 

Another Guilty Pleasure of mine is watching Harry Potter movies because no one else will watch them with me. This is because i end up quoting the entire movie. Yeah, its bad when you have I believe 5 out of the 8 memorized. 
 And watching CSPAN , hey someone has to do it. And here are some memes about CSPAN and Rand Paul, because he is interesting and has done some cool stuff in the Senate. His whole view of the Federal Reserve and and how there needs to be less regulation is what i believe in. So yeah. I also have all three of his books.
