ALL ABOARD!! Toot toot!! Except like a train horn, more of a waaaaah waaaaaaahhh. A nice manly train noise. DO YOU KNOW WHAT DAY IT IS?! It’s September 1st and that means it’s time for us all to gather our trunks and our owls to prepare for another year at Hogwarts. If you are looking for me, I’ll be at platform 9 ¾ waiting for the Hogwarts express to take me back to my one true home. My favorite place. Hogwarts.
Every year on September 1st I started re-reading or re-listening to all the Harry Potter books. It really gets me in the Fall spirit. Give me Harry and give me a PSL (pumpkin spice latte!) and all is content in the world. Really. What more do we need than Harry Potter and coffee. The answer is nothing. Since September 1st falls on a Saturday this year I won’t be starting my HP ritual until Monday. It’s good to start things on Mondays. So, this coming Monday I will be going back to Hogwarts. My literal favorite place. & of course, I will be listening to the Stephen Fry version and we’ll be searching for the Philosopher’s Stone, because I don’t settle for second best.
A lot of you have probably figured out by now that I have a HUGE obsession with Harry Potter. I get tagged on Facebook all the time about Harry Potter stuff, my desk at work is COVERED in Harry Potter stuff, I have a Harry Potter tattoo, my wallet is a Harry Potter letter from Hogwarts, I’M LITERALLY WEARING A GYFFINDOR QUIDDITCH SHIRT AS I TYPE THIS. That’s how Harry Potter I am. My coffee mug that I drink out of in the mornings says, ‘Don’t let the muggles get you down’. My cat is named Albus. I have the deathly hallows mark on my car. I’m wearing an owl necklace with a tiny envelope which holds a tiny letter to Hogwarts. I DON’T FUCK AROUND WITH MY FANDOM. If my husband wasn’t so stubborn my daughter’s name would be Hermione. I literally cried when Alan Rickman died. Not just Snape the character, the literal actor. Not even kidding. Harry Potter is the shit. I’m never going to stop loving this. Ever.
Who else will be joining me today (or Monday) in re-reading Harry Potter? I do this every year. It’s one of my favorite things. Especially book 3, The Prisoner of Azkaban, and book 6, The Half-Blood Prince. Those are my favorites. My favorite places, besides Hogwarts of course, are the Burrow and 12 Grimmauld Place.
My least favorite book has to be Order of the Phoenix. Harry is just so freaking whiney in that one plus the bitch Dolores Umbridge… ugh. I hate that bitch. I understand why Harry is so whiney but he wastes all his precious time with Sirius being a whiney bitch. Buck up Harry. You wanted to be in the wizarding world and you are doing it. Stop being a wet blanket.
Man just seeing this bitches face gets me fired up….
I hope you are all partaking in #BacktoHogwarts and always remember, Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if one only remembers to turn on the light ❤ #hpswoon
