Today is September 1st and for those of us who are Potterheads it means it’s going back to Hogwarts day!
I got the amazing chance to grow up along with Hermione, Harry and Ron and learn about friendship, love, loyalty, courage, resourcefulness, determination and even more about myself.
The years I spent with them helped me go through a lot of personal problems and self-esteem issues and it might not be important for a lot of people out there, but for me and for those of us who love the series it meant the world to be a part of it.
Even more so, whichever book helped you, encouraged you to be a better person, to love yourself, to love the characters and the story; whichever series kept you awake to the early morning hours or late night hours, is HOME too.
As Fangirls we don’t have one life, we have many.
As Fangirls we don’t have one home, we have several.
As Fangirls we don’t love halfway, we love completely.
And yes, what we read, what we watch, what we listen to, what we write, what we draw, what we animate and what makes us believe in different worlds, might be in our heads, but as the great J.K Rowling said:
If you’re a Potterhead, let me know which house you’re in!
If you’re not, tell me which series means HOME to you. I love getting to know new places I might get to call home.
Until our next trip together!
