Day 31 Potter Challenge. ❤

How did you come by Harry Potter and fall in love with it?

So I grew up relatively poor, we never had the money to have anything or treats but my parents did try and take us to the cinema when ever they could afford it. We seen this film in cinema and my mum is a sucker for magic. She literally cries at anything magical. And we all fell in love with the movie, every year my parents made sure we could go and see the next movies. And it became a family thing. Then this year I came across the whole book collection in a Bootsale for £5 and decided I was ready to face my fears and read… Reading has always been a downfall because I read slow and I’m very self conscious, but I was ready and I’m not as slow as I originally thought. I’m on the half blood Prince and I’m finding I want to slow down because I’m won’t know what to do with myself.

Day 30 Potter challenge.

Favourite quotes.

So this is my number one favourite, I am Helga Hufflepuff, I want to go into education and in all of my placements I have never segregated any children based on ability or disability. They are all the same they all need the same care and attention. Inclusion is the beat thing for children is you put a less able child with a capable child, the less able with strive and do things you may never have seen before because they do NOT want that label. Never judge a child based on ability while they are still developing, because they will never show you what they are fully capable of.

Again… Abilities… I don’t even need to say why I love this.

image

Everyone has good and bad… Everyone makes mistakes, we should never dwell on that, we need to remember were all human cut anyone of any colour and we all bleed red. Never judge someone based on a mistake.

image

I have done stupid things based on fear, my anxiety speaks ALOT for that too. But i say terrible things when I am scared, makes no sense really but very true. We should always find out the big picture before judging.

Story of my life. ❤❤

Day 29 Potter Challenge.

Favourite magical creature. Why?

So firstly I HAVE to say the Welsh green, dragon, I must say this because it is native to my OWN country. I am very patriotic very proud of where I’m from. This dragon attempts to avoid human contact and breeds on small animals like sheep, which I can promise we have plenty of, it’s very placid and timid for a dragon. It’s ROAR is almost musical which suits it’s native land perfectly as we are known as the singing nation.

I also love the bowtruckle how fussy they are over certain trees, which helps the Wizard choose what tree’s are best for wand making. I just love how they look like twigs.

Day 28 Potter Challenge.

So the most underrated character in my opinion is Lupin. He is absolutely fantastic in the books, but the films really do weaken his role, his strength and relationship he has with Harry. You don’t really learn.anything about Lupin in the films, BUT the books… Wow that’s a whole other blog post. He is absolutely incredible in the books. I really wished he was portrayed better, this has nothing to do with the actor because I feel David Thewlis plays the parts amazingly, it’s the lack of influence he has within the films. Before I had even read the books Lupin was my least favourite character, after reading the book he is my favourite. I absolutely adore him. ❤

The Rules.

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and link to their blog.

2. Answer the questions that the blogger who nominated you has provided.

3. Nominate FOUR other bloggers

4. Create ten questions for your nominees and notify them of their nomination.

My Questions.❤.

1. The most beautiful book I’ve read, cliché I know, but I’ve only started reading again recently, is drum role please… The Fault In Our Stars. This book was beautifully written all the metaphors made the book so much easier to read, to feel, to imagine and to put yourself in their shoes. I love the whole story, it’s totally beautiful. ❤

2. So I’m from Wales, it’s a country next to England known for its singing, it’s rugby and sheep. I have recently finished college and I’m now a level3 childcare practitioner, I’m hoping to specialise in working with children with disabilities and mental health, especially autism. With autism on the increase I feel that so many people are still so uneducated and are quick to judge, yet I find autistic spectrum disorder intriguing the way these children and adults think so out the box it’s just admiring.

3. Five things that make me happy:

⚫ My son, he’s my inspiration, my happiness and my universe. You never know a love like it. He drives me to do better for myself. He has overcome his own problems in his little life yet there’s not a day he doesn’t laugh from his stomach or smile.

⚫My hubby to be, although he drives me insane at times he’s an incredible dad and an amazing partner. He makes me smile at the darkest of times.
image

⚫Harry Potter I love the books, the imagination, the words everything to do with Harry Potter. I love other Harry Potter fans. It has helped me through ALOT of times and has helped me with coping and seeing the positive out of negative situations.

⚫ The Walking Dead. So from magic to zombies. I know they are on totally different sides of the spectrum. But I’m a sucker for a zombie film, TV series, books (any good zombie books let me know) and I’m not going to complain when I get to look at Daryl Dixon played by Norman Reedus for an hour. NOM.

⚫ Finally my family, this includes my friends also, we are one HUGE family. I am so greatful for the amazing support network that I have. Each and everyone one of them know how much they mean to me. They know how to handle me, they’re not afraid to tell me straight which I like. Were so sarcastic and everytime new memories are made and cherished.

4. My favourite movie, I have a few but, the Harry Potter movies, the crow, dirty dancing and point break. Patrick Swayze was and still is my ultimate hero.

Favourite book, Harry Potter books. I love them so much. ❤

Favourite TV series, The Walking Dead. Zombies zombies zombies zombies. That’s all I need to say.

5. My current goal in life, is to get a job working with families in areas of deprivation, to provide a stable and happy life for our son and go to the Walker stalker convention and Harry Potter studios.

6. 3 places I’d like to visit…

⚫Norway is my number one place to visit, it is so scenic almost poetic. Looks beautiful. No pollution the sky is clear and the waters are so clear they reflect the mountain view around.

⚫Texas, we have family who we only met this year who live in Texas I would love to go out there and spend some more family time with them.

⚫Finally New Zealand, again its poetic so pretty, plus I really want to visit the shire. Who doesn’t want to see a hobbit house.

7. PIZZAAAAAAA… Oh my I’m salivating I need pizza, stuffed crust, cheese cheese cheese… *** urm let me just wipe the dribble from my chin.

8. 5 words that define me…
⚫ Tiny.
⚫ Quirky/individual
⚫ Tom Boy.
⚫ Tattoo’s
⚫ Assertive.

9. Something I want to change in myself if you would have asked me.this 5 years ago, it would have been a different answer, I had an eating disorder. But ask me now and I’m struggling I’m very content with my life and current situation BUT if I had to choose I would probably say my attitude, it can get me into trouble, also I take everything personally, but they are my qualities and I love them just as equally.

10. Love in my own words..
Love in my own words is happiness is being content with someone is laughing everyday till your cheeks hurt. It’s not worrying about what you look like because you’re accepted. You share similarities but you also vary in qualities which makes it more of an interesting experience. Love is an adventure so follow it and enjoy it. ❤

Day 27 Potter Challenge.

Favourite minor character and why!?

OK so this is a toss up between two, either Firenze the centaur or Olivander.

Firenze.

I like how Firenze isn’t afraid to stray from his pack to help Dumbledore. Firenze always sees the best in people, I do not know if situations change with him and his pack but they haven’t yet with me. He does have loyalty to his pack, but he also knows when others need help and isn’t afraid to go and help regardless of the consequences that may face him.

Olivander.

This is purely based on the films, he instilled so much magic, fun and excitement into the first film for me personally. My son loves the scene where he gets his wand for the first time. His voice is magical and I love him.

The wand chooses the Wizard my friend.

Day 26 Potter Challenge.

My favourite Villain and why!?

So I am going to base this on what I have read so far (Half Blood Prince) but my answer could be influenced by knowing the ending already, although I do not think so. But I’m going to have to say Prof. Snape, I know he does turn out to be a “goodie” BUT I loved him while he was the Villain we all thought he was and my love just grew when that wasn’t the case. I love how Harry’s famous status does not and has never affected how he treats Harry. He’s the only one that has never tolerated any of his lies and cheek. Although he’s miserable he’s made me laugh in EVERY book. He’s the oddball, he’s dark mysterious and a loner. I love Severs. ❤

Day 25 Potter Challenge.

My favourite student and why!?

Neville Longbottom. I absolutely adore Neville, he is such a misunderstood character, he is far braver than people think and he’s funny. The lack of confidence makes me want to grab him scruff up his hair kiss his forehead and hug him let him know he has the ability to achieve. He has been through ALOT with his parents and it makes me love his character more. He is also constantly bring reminded how he does not live up to his parents reputation, which is unfair because people seem to forget he is his own person. He really does not have the ability to seem himself as bring brave… Come on the boy fought in the battle in the department of mysteries and he destroyed the final horcrux also do not forget he stood up to voldermort and refused his offer to join the death Eater. He’s simply amazing. ❤
