Life Lessons From Harry Potter

Most people know the story of Harry Potter, the boy who lived. Through the books and the movies we have learned some pretty important life lessons.

1.) Friends will always be there

In the beginning you meet the characters Harry, Ron and Hermoine and throughout the stories their friendship just gets stronger. They have survived through Dementors and Death Eaters, Dolores Umbridge and Horcruxes. These 3 will always have a bond that can never be broken.

2.) Bravery

All of the characters in the books were all brave at one point, you kind of have to be when you go to wizard school. Harry has courage when he faces Voldemort or when Neville was brave when he broke the rules. Each of us are brave in our own way whether it's little or small.

3.) The element of surprise

People can surprise you. Judging a book by it's cover is something we don't take too seriously sometimes. The books showed us that we shouldn't judge a book by it's cover. For instance Hagrid is a really tall half giant and he can come off as intimidating when really he's really nice and caring.

4.) Asking for help

Most of the times we don't like asking for help because it makes us feel weak and unintelligent. Harry Potter has shown us that's it's okay to ask for help. For instance Harry doesn't like asking for help. Whether it's during the Triwizard Tournament to even asking a simple question. Also Hermoine doesn't like asking for help sometimes either. She assumes she knows everything when sometimes she doesn't.

5.) True love

Love is a common theme that is brought up multiple times. These stories have shown us that true love will always last. Whether it's Lily's love for Harry when she protects him or Snape's love for Lily. True love will always be.

Those are some life lessons from the Harry Potter series. Reread the books and see if you can find anymore life lessons!

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
