Recommended listening: Thinking of Me – Olly Murs
I am thoroughly surprised I haven’t written a blog post about this sooner, to be honest. I mean, it IS a big part of my life. I mean a really big part – so much so that I own an endless amount merchandise, own a RP* Twitter account, RP on forums, reread the books and replay the films time and time again and think that I’m a witch and that I should be in Ravenclaw or Slytherin because of it. You’ve probably caught on the end of what I’m going on about now, right? If you haven’t, AVADA KEDAVRA.
Harry Potter is my childhood. There I said it even though it is the most clichéd thing to say because everybody says it but truthfully, it is — and I will miss it like crazy. The excitement of a new book or film coming out… gone. I love Harry Potter like a fat boy loves cake. It was one of my inspirations to join the writing world because of the magic JK Rowling created. Oh god, I sound like such a sap being all gushy like this. I can’t help it, though! I’m still in Post Potter Depression [PPD], I spend endless amounts of time liking all these HP Facebook pages, watching YouTube videos and reading HP fanfiction. Don’t hate me, ’cause you ain’t me…
Now let’s move onto something else that is supposedly keeping Harry Potter alive, not that it ever really died but you know. This motherfucking Pottermore business. Do you know, I stayed up until MIDNIGHT, like a fool, because I thought that it’d open that time for registration but alas, no. It decided to open at 9AM [BST], so I’m here all clicking up on this stupid quill and registering only to receive my email 3 HOURS later and then telling me that I may have to wait several weeks for my Welcome email. They’d be sending them from mid August to end of September. IT HAS NOW BEEN 5 DAYS SINCE MID AUGUST AND HOW COMES THESE MOTHERFUCKING BITCHES WHO REGISTERED ON FUCKING DAY 7 HAVE ALREADY GOT THEIR EMAILS AND I HAVEN’T?! Le stress on my life. I totally think that it should have been first come, first serve — so the people who registered on Day 1 should have gotten their emails first. Right?!
Le shake my head, big time. I’ll just sit in the corner with my Draco Malfoy wand forever wishing that I was a witch. Waiting for my Hogwarts letter since 2003. Word.
