Okay. First things first, if you are a Potterhead who has not yet been sorted into your Hogwarts house, I demand that you do so immediately.
Now that we've gotten that out of the way...
I took the quiz on Pottermore a couple years ago and a little to my surprise, was sorted into Hufflepuff. You see, I've always loved writing, loved reading and thrived in academia. It seemed like a natural fit that the sorting hat would deem me a Ravenclaw. As I read on, however, I realized the Sorting Hat (and my sister who repeatedly told me I wasn't a Ravenclaw) knew me better than I knew myself.
I realize that doing the amount of research I did about Hufflepuff House is fairly ridiculous (and reminiscient of a Ravenclaw), but what can I say? I'm a card-carrying Harry Potter nerd.
I love that I belong to the house that is inclusive. That is filled with genuinely good people who don't feel the need to boast of their accomplishments. I love that it is the house grounded in the "earth" element. That its members are inspired by the natural world (Newt Scamander, Professor Sprout). I can't say I am always this person, but the values of the Hufflepuff house are values I try to model in my own life.
What's your Hogwarts house? Do you feel like it fits you?
