Potterhead July is a Harry Potter themed festival run by aentee at read at midnight in which a lot of bloggers talk about Harry Potter, in celebration of the release of THE CURSED CHILD.
hello and welcome to potterhead july, everybody!
i was lucky enough to be participating in this amazing event -thanks to aentee- so i decided to get a little nostalgic and remember everything we’ve learnt from harry potter.
so without further do, here are (some of) the lessons harry potter has taught us (even though one post will never do justice to these books).
#1 always seek happiness, no matter how dark the path can be
as much as Harry, Ron and Hermione were having bad days (like, really really bad days), they were having good ones too. life is full of ups and downs, and that’s what makes it worth living. *shrugs*
“Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”
#2 your entourage shouldn’t define you
through the Harry Potter books (and movies), Draco Malfoy was dragged to the dark side by his whole family, and even though he had no choice, i’m sure he was a good person inside. am i wrong?
#3 however, your choices do define you
what you choose to be, to do, to have, it’s these things that truly defines who you are. anyone can see aspects of your personality by seeing your choices.
#4 it’s horrible not to know love
Voldemort did not know or experience love throughout his whole life, so he was a pretty bad person. so be happy that you have family, friends and books (or Wi-Fi) and all other things worth loving. be thankful you’re not Voldemort *puts one million hearts*
#5 or worse, Umbridge.
no but seriously, am i the only one who hated Umbridge more than Voldemort? i just wanted her dead. she was so mean to everyone and kept putting her own rules like she’s the one running Hogwarts. she was just such a horrible person.
so be thankful if you’re not Umbridge, because if you were… *pulls out knife* *stabs*
#6 we really need to sort out our priorities
i know that Voldemort being The Dark Lord and stuff is more important than Umbridge being mean to Harry, but… *sigh* priorities.
honestly, i would definitely kill Umbridge if i could, or worse, expel her.
#7 it’s LeviOsa, not LeviosAR
honestly, thanks Hermione for all the good lessons.
okay, okay, okay, sorry, back to the serious stuff.
#8 magic is real if you know where to look, and you probably don’t need a spell
magic stands when we get attached to something, or someone. magic stands in books. magic is where love is.
#9 and finally, “Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home”.
Hogwarts is home for all Potterheads, whether they are new or old fans. they always keep coming back to the books and reading them again and again and again, and watching the movies again and again and again. they keep coming back home.
what have you learnt from Harry Potter? tell me, i want to know!
