8 Thoughts I Had After A Harry Potter Movie Marathon
Derek Hatfield

Harry Potter was embedded in my childhood without a doubt and I watched the first few movies at least twice. I loved the dynamic trio aka Harry, Hermione and Ron, and for some reason I always felt cheerful at the end of every movie. I was maybe 6 or 7 years old when I decided I wanted to read one of the books (which were very very long) but that didn’t work out. Still, the thought is what counts, and this just shows how passionate I was about the Harry Potter world.

I decided to do a Harry Potter movie marathon because I wanted to relive my childhood memories. These are some of my thoughts after watching all the movies.

1. The characters were BABIES in the first movie

Maybe I hadn’t realized this because I was actually younger than them when I first watched this movie, but now in my 20s I just can’t get over the fact that they weren’t even teenagers when they filmed the first movie.

2. I am so freaking old

You literally see them grow up when you watch all the movies, so you feel like you’re 60 by the end of the eighth film.

3. Harry experienced child abuse

I think I might have been too young to realize this, but Harry’s living condition at his uncle and aunt’s place was horrific. He lived under the stairs, there were locks on his “bedroom” door, and his uncle constantly threatened to starve him when he said “no meals this week.” That is straight up abuse.

4. How can Dudley, Harry’s cousin, be so spoiled

I was shocked at Dudley’s attitude. He was so spoiled that he got mad when his parents didn’t give him more gifts than on his previous birthday (37 to be exact).

5. Wow, Robert Pattinson had an acting life before Twilight.

I had no idea he acted before Twilight, so seeing him play Cedric was a shocker.

6. I admire Ron Weasley’s mom

She raised six children. SIX!!

7. The last movies are so dark

The first 3 movies were definitely happier? I just feel like they get a lot darker since a lot of people die.

8. Hermione and Ron are obviously meant to be together

I wouldn’t have guessed it when I was little because they pretended to dislike each other. However, you can tell how much they love each other since they were freshies at Hogwarts.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
