Harry Potter was my Childhood
An era has ended. I don't want to fill this post up with all my personal ramblings about Harry Potter. In basic terms, I love Harry Potter. I read the books around 7 or 8 and now that the movies are all out, I'm 21. I've waited at midnight, I've read the last book in a day, I've watched A Very Potter Musical, I've drank butterbeer, I've listened to Wizard Wrock, I've read (and written...I'll admit it) fan fiction, I've collected various HP merchandise, and I've loved it all. It's been a wild ride. I grew up with these characters.
I've laughed, I've cried, and I've quoted. I'll miss it. It'll always be part of my life and I'll always re-read the books and re-watch the films. Whenever I have kids, I'll read them these stories and share my own. I'm very thankful for J.K. Rowling for writing this series and for all the actors and crew and people that made the films come alive for us all.
I am so happy that I could grow up with this series. It'll never be the same after this. No more waiting for the next book and wondering what will happen next. Everyone else will have the seven books laid out to be read one after the other. I'm glad I got not only the story but the EXPERIENCE.
And now, I'm going to share some more amusing Harry Potter photos that I have found around the web. I like to call these Harry Potter meets Pop Culture.
