Unearthed from my Closet: Slytherin Pride

On June 26th, 1997, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was released.
On June 26th, 2017 Harry Potter celebrated its 20th Anniversary. 

That week we went to Universal Studios Hollywood to take the mini geek to Wizarding World of Harry Potter. She's never been and I'm always down for a adventure. Luck would have it that we schedule that trip that weekend. 

But I got a geeky confession for you. I haven't finished the series - in both book and film forms. 

I never got through Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I keep getting stuck in the same spot, bored and I just stop reading. Jaime has even given me the book on audio and I"ll listen to a good chunk and stop. 

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was my favorite book and I didn't like how the third film went so I didn't bother with the rest of the series. I was shown Goblet of Fire not too long ago and well, I spent the entire time rolling my eyes and hating Ron. Was that just me? Does anyone else hate film Ron? Does he get better?

But it happens in geekdom! No one is going to like everything and there are people out there who like certain parts of a fandom. That's totally okay! Thankfully the jokes about not finishing Potter have been small and mainly from my friends. I do want to finish the books because I heard they get a LOT better but I want to finish Goblet. 

But either way, I do like Harry Potter and I'm all about House of Slytherin. My friends will tell me things about the world of Potter and they all agree I belong in that house. 

And with that note, I totally rocked a Slytherin theme outfit to Universal that day.

I'll finish the books one day.
