Why your Hogwarts house does not matter/ Why we are all divergent

So this blog post has been a long time coming and I have wanted to write this post for the longest time. So this post will come in two parts:

1. Why your Hogwarts house does not matter
2. Why we are all divergent 

So let's get started with the first part...

Why your Hogwarts house does not matter

So when you see this post title you may think that I have gone slightly mad but it terms of a new Pottermore quiz, I say new it is not that new anymore, it is quite relevant. When the Pottermore test resurfaced, a couple of months, my twitter feed went crazy when people discovered they were no longer in the same Hogwarts house. So was I one of these people? No, now I am going to tell you why. I am a Hufflepuff, I know I am a Hufflepuff so when I took the test again I looked for the answers that were most Hufflepuff in nature. But does this mean I should be in Hufflepuff? No, at the end of the day the Pottermore test is an algorithm, it's decisions are universal for everyone, meaning that specific answers will have consequences and it can not tell you what you know to be true inside. To be honest, this means that I can just beat a computer and any quiz for that matter, and even though this could mean I am slightly a Ravenclaw, we can all be more than one house, I mean even Harry Potter could be in Slytherin it is just that he did not want to be. So to conclude, even if you did not get your ideal house on Pottermore, this does not stop you being the house that you want to be and that you no one is completely one house. 

House Pride for the win!

Why we are all divergent 

Most of us know the story of Divergent, a girl fits out of the crowd because she fits more than one faction. Similarly to Harry Potter, the whole "What faction would you be in" has risen from the story. But this is weird because the whole point of the story is people who only fit one faction are considering to be unnormal. So thinking about this does this not mean that we are not all divergent. We all are special in our own unique way having different qualities. So thinking about this, we all having qualities which means that we are not just one thing. 

So, go be your special divergent self!  

Do you agree with me? Do you change Hogwarts house than on Pottermore? Do you think we are all divergent? Leave them in the comments below. 

See you soon and thank you for reading,

Turning 21?

You see I have put this blog post for such a long time but tomorrow the inevitable will happen and I will turn 21. I don't know why I decided to add and to keep a question mark in the title because it's not like it is going to happen it will but maybe it's because I just don't feel like it. Queue all the age is nothing but a number talk but I  guess that this is not what this blog post is going to be about. 

Being 21 has always been the number that I have aspired to, the one that has been in the back of my mind for the longest time. When I was 18, I knew that at 21 I would be in my final year of university, which I am, and that I would graduate this year and on to the future. But am I right?

I feel like so much has changed it want this magic number must be, given the bears with keys in their hands as if a sign that this would be the time that we would get keys of our own and would gain so much independent. But this is it, it is just a dream. 

That's not going to happe…

Book Summary:
Six girls, six boys. Each in the two separate bays of a single spaceship. They have six minutes each week to seduce and to make their choices, under the unblinking eye of the on-board cameras. They are the contenders in the Genesis programme, the world's craziest speed-dating show ever, aimed at creating the first human colony on Mars.

Even if the dream turns to a nightmare, it is too late for regrets.

Book Review: 

I was excited to read Ascension as Hot Key were describing this as Love Island in space and much like the rest of the UK, I have been hooked by the show that has just finished. This description is so accurate bu…
