Anticipating The New "Harry Potter" Book

It's officially the year of "Harry Potter!"

Anticipating The New "Harry Potter" Book

While a lot has been going on recently, I’m sure all the Potterheads rejoiced at the good news this week. Last year, we found out that there was going to be a play that would follow Harry and his son Albus set after the epilogue. Unfortunately, most fans were disappointed to hear that the play would only be opening in London. Never fear!

This week, it was announced that the script will be sold in print in July for all fans to purchase. As expected, the preorders for “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” skyrocketed to the top of Amazon’s bestseller chart. With “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” also being released this year, I easily dub this year the year of "Harry Potter."

Like most of my friends, I grew up reading "Harry Potter," watching the movies in theaters, shedding tears for all of the fallen. Of course, like it is for everyone, "Harry Potter" will never be over for me. Obviously, I’ve already pre-ordered the book, and I will probably finish all of it the day I get it; I will go watch the movie the first day it comes out.

If you couldn’t tell, I’m beyond excited. However, there’s always the fear of being disappointed. When the series ended, fans carried on using their imagination, expanding the world that we had all grown to love. We’ve had years to come up with our own theories on what happened to Harry’s kids at Hogwarts and how our favorite characters are doing after the war. It’s pretty much inevitable that things are at least going to be somewhat different from what we imagined.

While I'm not looking forward to some of my closely held theories to be potentially invalidated, I've decided to go in without expectations and accept whatever happens. I trust J.K. Rowling to stay faithful to the characters she created many years ago, no matter how long it's been. Ultimately, the universe does partially belong to the fans, and we’re perfectly entitled to accept or reject whatever we want to. So, here’s to the year of "Harry Potter!"

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Every person, every couple celebrates Valentines in different ways, but there are a few things to keep in mind.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Ah, Valentines Day, a day of excitement for some and heart break for many. There are three kinds of people on Valentine's Day: the ones who make it a big deal, a little deal, and those who are single, but Valentine's Day can be fun for anyone if you have the right spirit in mind.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month.
