My favorite pastime is sorting celebrities into Hogwarts Houses
Obligatory disclaimer at the start of this post: Trans rights are human rights. JK Rowling is a garbage goblin and her narrow minded viewpoints are very pure-blood adjacent. Like, gross.
Harry Potter was an important part of my childhood. It provided an escape from real life when I needed it, expanded my imagination, helped me navigate loss, and gave me something to talk about with other nerds when I was feeling socially awkward at a party.
When a new book was released, I was the b*tch at Barnes & Nobel with a scar drawn on my forehead, waiting for the clock to strike midnight.
Cut to present day: I am officially a millennial stereotype, making my love of Harry Potter a main personality trait far past an age that is socially acceptable. As a gemini, I vibe with both Slytherin AND Hufflepuff depending on the day, my outfit, my mood, and whether or not I'm on my period. (For three days a month I'm just straight up Voldemort, just ask my husband. But, I digress....)
Hat to head though, I am a Badger Babe. Go Puffs!
Now that I've concluded Chapter One of an autobiography you certainly did NOT ask for, let's get to the reason for this post:
My favorite pastime is sorting celebrities into Hogwarts houses. So, for no particular reason in no particular order, here are some random celebrities and their houses:
-Ravenclaw: Emma Watson
She is smart, witty, competitive, and creative. She is well spoken and uses her voice to share ideas and advocate for important issues that affect both Wizards and Muggles, like climate change and gender equality. (Now let's hope she uses that beautiful brain to learn how to do a passable American accent. But that's a post for another day....)
-Hufflepuff: Khloe Kardashian
Of all the Kardashians, Khloe is often the one playing peacemaker, standing up for the underdog, and trying to hear both sides of a story. Khloe is affectionate, nurturing, and loyal....sometimes, to a fault *cough* Tristan *cough*
-Gryffindor: Pete Davidson
This is the man behind the phrase BDE. He's bold, reckless, and, when he believes in something, goes all in. While he is slightly chaotic and impulsive, his heart is usually in the right place, even if his brain is not. And, like Harry, he has no business being as confident as he is and yet....
-Slytherin: If we're being honest, MOST people on reality tv are Slytherins, but let's go with Spencer Pratt for today's activity.
He values family above all, and demands respect and unwavering loyalty. He is resourceful, clever, ambitious, and, well, willing to do what it takes to get ahead. In short, he understands the assignment. And, while he probably wouldn't be a Death Eater (taking orders isn't really his vibe), he would DEFINITELY be selling Pratt Daddy Crystals at Borgin and Burkes.
So fellow Potter Heads, comment some more celebrities below and let's sort them!
