8 Reasons You Need A Hufflepuff In Your Life

They are a little underappreciated, don't you think?

8 Reasons You Need A Hufflepuff In Your Life

1. They're Just

Hufflepuffs are centered people with level heads. They usually try to seek justice for most situations and try to hear both sides to a story before making any judgements. They have patience and they treat everyone equally.

2. They're Loyal

Hufflepuffs are loyal. Period. Who stuck around to fight in the battle against Voldemort and his army? That's right...aside from the Gryffindors, several of the Hufflepuffs stepped up to the plate, even if they knew it meant risking their lives.

3. And They're Particularly Good Finders

Newt Scamander proves this to us in "Fantastic Beasts" and his magi-zoology skills. Besides chasing down a niffler throughout the entire story, he managed to keep track of and take care of several magical creatures. The same correlation can be made with many scenes throughout the "Harry Potter" series.

4. Their Mascot Is a Badger

Yes, a badger. It might as well be a honey badger though because of their spirit level. Regardless, it's pretty dang cool.

5. The Hufflepuff House Includes Some Cool People

This list includes just some of the well-known individuals: Cedric Diggory, Pamona Sprout, Helga Hufflepuff (founder), Nymphadora Tonx, Fat Friar (the house ghost who is quite a character), Newt Scamander, Eddie Redmayne (yes, both), Hannah Abbott (Neville's wife), Teddy Lupin (Son of Nymphadora and Remus), Rupert Grint, and Matthew Lewis just to name a few.

6. There's A Coalition For Better Treatment Of Hufflepuffs

Yes, this is a thing. Eddie Redmayne, a Hufflepuff himself, is a spokesperson for this coalition. You can watch his little speaking gig regarding the matter in the video above! You go, Eddie!

7. JK Rowling Believes Hufflepuffs Have Great Spirit

JK Rowling herself believes that Hufflepuffs are awesome and are genuine people,. She states “In many, many ways, Hufflepuff if my favourite house.” on the matter followed by what her daughter believes on the matter: “I think we should all want to be Hufflepuffs.”

Enough said.

8. They're Accepting Of All

And I mean it. Most Hufflepuffs are open-minded and accept everyone into their hearts, no matter the scenario. They are noble and this is one of the many reasons why they make such a wonderful friend.

So don't be hesitant about those Hufflepuffs, go friend one today! And if you call within the next few minutes, we'll throw Eddie Redmayne in the deal! (Kidding....although wouldn't that be nice?)

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
