So my life has revolved around Harry Potter for the last 6 weeks. It feels like I’ve been locked inside a room for months and now I’ve been forced outside into civilization with no idea of how to interact with anyone. Even reading another book feels weird. You may think I’m joking, but I would actually make an effort to somehow include Harry Potter trivia into a conversation just because it was all I knew for 6 weeks.

Again, this is my third time reading series so it’s not like my eyes were barely opened. I was already really into it before, but this time I just for some reason got out of hand. For example, the day after I finished Deathly Hallows, there was a Harry Potter movie marathon on TV and I forced myself to watch every one. Not because I enjoy them, which I do. But because I wanted to see every detail the movies left out from the book while the memories were fresh. Yea. I’m THAT friend.

I’m still debating whether or not to write a separate post about the series. A part of me does because I already know what I would write about. But the other part of me has lately been very unmotivated with this blog. It’s not the reading that’s a strain. It’s never the reading. It’s the writing. A part of me doesn’t see the point in continuing. But at the same time, I know I should see myself finish at least one project.

Times like this I ask myself, WWHPD.

What Would Harry Potter Do.
