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, 

Amy

So if you could not see by the title of the blog post, it has been a year since I posted my first blog post. I can happily say that this blog has changed a lot in this one year, I mean the layout has not been dramatically altered but the content has. This blog has increased my passion for reading and has been a way that I can spread this with everyone in this community. This has led me to read some incredible books and interact with some great people and I can happily say that I feel part of the community. 

Due to this being the first year of the blog existing, I hope for this to be the first of many so to track the changes in my blogging life especially in terms of my reading life. So let's get started...

Female Representation in Harry Potter: A Transcription

So later today, in 2 hours I am going to be doing a presentation on Female Representation in Harry Potter for my university's Harry Potter Society and I thought some of you may be interested in what I had to say. I also respect that people may disagree with my views on the subject and understand that this is not the only opinion you can have. So here it is...

Hello, everyone. Thank you for coming! Today I am going to discuss female representation in Harry Potter books and films. The aims of this presentation would be to introduce you to the fact that female representation in Harry Potter may not be what it seems. So you may think that female characters are actually quite well done in the series but at some points, this is not the case. To look at this further I will be looking at characters individually as well as some aspects of the series in general. I guess that until I first researched the topic, I thought that of course, Harry Potter was going to have good female representation…
