A Geeky Gal has made a 30-day Harry Potter Challenge that she posts everyday. The lovely photo below is hers. I have decided to schedule this post for later since not everyone on my timeline is a Harry Potter fan and I’m afraid they might get overwhelmed by the bulk of Harry Potter blogs. With that in mind, I have decided to answer her challenges daily, however, will be publishing it as one post in time for Harry’s Birthday! YAY! You may want to partake so if you’ve got time to spare, here are the rules (click me).
Day 1 – When did you first read Harry Potter?
Day 2 – What is your Hogwarts House & is it fitting?

Day 25 – How would you feel if the wizarding world were to exist today?
But for Voldemort’s case, I am certain that he’s pure evil.
Day 27 – What do you think the moral message is in Harry Potter?
Day 28 – Rowlings’ Annual Apologies: What would you change about the series?
From Harry Potter Fandom: The Mirror of Erised is a magical mirror, which, according to Albus Dumbledore, shows the “deepest, most desperate desire of our hearts.” The name “Erised” is “desire” spelled backwards, as if reflected in a mirror. The happiest and most satisfied person in the world would look in the mirror and see a reflection of them, exactly as they were, for they would then have no one and nothing more to yearn or desire for that the mirror could ever show them. But of course, it is intrinsically inherent for human nature to desire something greater than one’s own self – meaning that an event wherein the mirror fails to carry out its intended purpose rarely, if at all, happens.
I won’t change anything drastic, but I will bring more story about the Mirror of Erised.
Day 29 – How has the Harry Potter series influenced your life?
How has it influenced me?
I am a fan. I thank God for HBO Max because the Harry Potter series is now easily accessible through that.
It’s influenced my choice of places to visit. I always check for an opportunity to see the Wizarding World, so traveling to a place where there’s Universal Studios would be a plus. It’s influenced me in a way that I easily feel drawn to people who like Harry Potter –books and movies. It’s like you’ll be an automatic bff if you feel like discussing HP with me & yes, I get turned off by fakers. I mean, those who claim to be a fan and know nothing beyond the main characters. I am that kind of fan. I know.
I am also very determined to introduce this to Brooklyn and I am glad that he feels interested about it. I mean, he’s chosen his preferred house already and look, he’s even worn the costume!!!
Lastly, the book’s a getaway for me in case I want to break free from the real world, I’d like to think that it’s a place where I can dream about all the crazy possibilities on magic and life as a non-muggle. I mean, in my fantasy, I am definitely not a Squib.
Day 30 – Epilogue: Did the original series get the ending it deserved?
I felt it lacked something. A longer one could have been better?
I wished Draco’s shift of allegiance had been more emphasized & part of me wished that Sirius had come back to life…
Ron and Hermione’s love team is something I liked the very first time their shipping’s been implied, I wish I can say the same for Harry and Ginny’s. Their sudden pairing had always puzzled me.
Pardon my last minute rants, it’s just a sentiment from a fan who wants more and couldn’t get over the fact that it has ended, hahahaha! That’s basically it!
