10 Life Lessons Harry Potter has taught me…

  1. That I would really struggle to chose between owning an owl, a cat or a toad.
  2. That ‘muggle’ clothing is actually quite confusing to outsiders.
  3. That an invisibility cloak is possibly one of the coolest things you could own and that Harry definitely doesn’t use it to his advantage (does he not want to see Cho in the shower?)
  4. That ‘happiness can be found in the darkest of places, if only one remembers to turn on the lights’.
  5. That I must always be suspicious of my pets, just in case they turn out to actually be humans at a later date and do their best to murder me.
  6. That love really is the best magic of all.
  7. That if you’re a witch or wizard you can eat and eat and eat and do no exercise and still not gain any weight (Halloween feast anyone???) but sadly the same does not apply to me.
  8. That I should never follow handwritten instructions in a book, even if they help me with my next essay. You can’t trust anyone these days.
  9. That ‘being unfailingly kind’ is a trait ‘people never fail to undervalue’ (thank you Dumbledore).
  10. That being in a friendship group of 3 causes immeasurable amounts of problems, especially if two of you fancy each other!
