Maybe it's because it's 4am, or maybe it's because there's a Harry and the Potters concert tomorrow, but I'm feeling awful sentimental about Harry Potter at the moment. I need to write her a letter, even if I never send it. It just needs to be written.

I'd only really start a youtube channel, so that I could make friends with some awesome youtubers who I'm subscribed to. I think I've gotten written responses from most of these people, and they all strike me as really into the community, which I find really endearing, plus they're just really interesting awesome people, whose videos I love to watch. So, these are youtube people whom I'd like to befriend.

Now that IB's almost over, I guess I can see what I've gained from it?

  • A ridiculously awesome and nerdy group of friends (BAM!)
  • Kind of gained a social life? Funny how that works...
  • I'm better at writing essays ...hopefully.
  • I don't gripe over grades so much, now that they're so low.
  • Improvement on oral presentations...again, hopefully.
  • A love for the UBC koerner library, and MICROFILM! :D
  • I know a lot about early 20th century women in Britain, specifically in the years leading up to and during the first world war... which I'm kind of really proud of.
  • I'm still taking a science and math course, which might be useful later on in life...

These verses are so amazing, that I've had to physically stop the song and play them over again in order to bask in their magnificence

  • "I'm a grape, I'm a sweet necterine, my skin gets stuck in your teeth." from Boston Girl by Givememotion
  • "Because the way that we listen is defined by our ears." from The Fermi Paradox: A Song by nerdfighter, Hank Green.
  • "All they say are words, all they say are just words." and "Maybe there's a reason I freak out, when I look down and all I see are black keys" From Just Words by Givememotion
  • "She tied you to a kitchen chair. She broke your throne, and she cut your hair, And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah." From Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen

but then I did....

  • Garou -God, his voice is amazing.
  • Hugh Laurie -His character (House) may have something to do with it, but it's mostly the eyes. They are gorgeous.
  • Draco Malfoy -He's an arrogant jerk from the very first book, but Tom Felton plays him so well, and he becomes such a complex character nearing the end of the series that I can't help but be attracted.
  • Jean-Baptiste Maunier -He was 14 when "Les Choristes" came out. So I don't think it's right for me to find him attractive. All the same, his voice is that of an angel, so I feel that it's justified.
  • Voldemort -Well, he still isn't attractive, but in A Very Potter Musical he was played amazingly by a really attractive guy, Joe Walker, and so I'm hooked.

It's fairly easy to blow my mind, still thought I should make a list

  • The size of the Universe
  • The number of deaths from Concentration Camps in the Holocaust, how they got away with it, and the lack of morality involved.
  • Freedom Riders, risking their lives for the suffrage rights of other people. Amazing.
  • The size of a blue whale's heart.
  • If the Earth was the size of a pool ball, it would be more smooth (including mariana’s trench and everest)

  • I stay relatively active.
  • I worked pretty hard to get to the level of fitness that I'm at now.
  • I'm enthusiastic and friendly.
  • I'm not easily put down.
  • I can be relied on to keep secrets (At least I think I can be...)
  • I try to acknowledge when I am wrong.
  • I'm learning to take criticism in a positive manner.
  • My eyes are a nice colour.
  • My eyelashes are long and thick.

  • JK Rowling. Undeniably the coolest person in the world. I have only two words for you: Harry. Potter.
  • Stephen Fry. He writes, acts, podcasts, and he's the voice for the british Harry Potter audio books.
  • Hugh Laurie. Not only is he the most awesome doctor in the world, maybe second to Doctor Who , but he's an amazing british actor with great comic timing.
  • Cassandra Clare. Her character Jace may be my soul mate. For that, she is amazing.
  • Alison Sudol. Her voice is beautiful, the name of her band is based off of Shakespeare, and her lyrics are the most amazing I have ever heard.
  • John Green. I love his books, and his youtube videos. He's insightful, witty and very nerdy.
  • Natalie Tran. She's very popular on youtube, and I adore her videos. She's incredibly, awkwardly, awesome.

Today, on facebook, a bunch of my friends took a "What house are you in?" test, which resulted in "At least I'm not a Hufflepuff" comments. This reminded me that I'm getting sick and tired of all this crap about it sucking to be a Hufflepuff, hence this list. So if you're on the hating-Hufflepuff bandwagon, I hope this can convince you otherwise.

  • They're loyal. I'm starting to get severely annoyed with people not appreciating the awesomeness of loyalty. I'd much rather be considered a good person who'll stand by my friends through thick and thin than someone who cares about my grades more than anything else.

People seem to complain about the fifth book more than any of those in the Harry Potter series. Some claim it to be the point of decline for the books, many detest the angsty protagonist, and I feel the need to defend poor little fifteen year old Harry. So here's why JK Rowling's characterization of Harry Potter in OotP is perfectly reasonable:

  • He just witnessed his parents coming out of a wand, people who've been dead for basically his entire life, and who he used to spend hours staring at in a mirror.
  • He was attacked by soul sucking, depression inducing wraith like figures, who tend to bring back images of his parents' murder, and then nearly expelled for defending himself.
  • His most beloved parental figure (Dumbledore) is ignoring him.
  • He witnessed the most evil wizard in the ...
