9 Reasons Being A 'Hufflepuff' Is Actually Superior

9 Reasons Being A 'Hufflepuff' Is Actually Superior

There's Bravery and Power In Being Soft

So you just found out you're a Hufflepuff... CONGRATULATIONS YOU LUCKY WIZARD YOU!

You are officially a part of the only house that doesn't get places by being a total jerk or through overstepping your boundaries... and that's pretty damn cool if you ask me. Hufflepuff is the most underrated house to be in and here's just a glimpse as to why:

1. You're Known For Your Kindness

Yeah being a sneaky little shit isn't an honest way to live your life and you know and embrace that. You're known for being "the nice guys" and you wouldn't be able to fathom it any other way (P.S. Nice does not equal boring).

2. We Have The Fewest Dark Wizards

Of all the house we keep our cool the most, you don't see us turning into dementors left and right... I'm looking at you Gryffindor with your Peter Pettigrew.


I think this one goes without explaining, and yes The Rock is really a Hufflepuff.

4. We're The Golden Child

J.K. Rowling, the queen herself, on several occasions has admitted we're her favorite. Even the sorting hat has mentioned us as "ideal." Those odds are pretty good.

5. We Are Loyal AF

We will do whatever it takes to protect not only our own, but any living thing that is good and true. You won't catch us with a two-sided personality or switching sides.

6. Newt Scammander (Eddie Redmayne) Is The Man

He is a Hufflepuff pioneer paving the way for the rest of us as he gains popularity. He's a total badass and it's about time people realized we aren't a force to be reckoned with, even in our gentle, seemingly quiet states.

7. We Aren't Show-offs Like Our Counterparts

We do everything with grace and dignity and we do everything with 100% heart. We do it not for the glory, but because it's just simply the right thing to do.

8. Our Common Room is Right by The Kitchen

Need I say more? We love to eat and being friendly means you're usually buddy-buddy with the house elves which also means more food.

9. We Don't Discriminate

House Elves, Pure Bloods, Mud Bloods, Warewolves, we love everyone just the same.

Needless to say, I understand we all root for our houses. However, Hufflepuff is and will always be the ultimate house. Always.

5 Songs to Add to Your Playlist This Month

Spring into finals week (and the summer) by "cleaning up" your playlist


Here are some fun, fresh new tracks to check out as you finish out the rest of the school year and help you get out of your "music comfort zone!"

“Patience” by Tame Impala 

Genre: Electronic/Alternative

Tame Impala FINALLY released new music (!!), and this track is absolutely stunning. With frontrunner Kevin Parker staying on brand with the band's psychedelic, seemingly ethereal style, it sounds like a combination of 70s soft rock and waves of modern-day electronica, with Parker's voice drifting in and out in a kind of otherworldly, mellowed-out manner.

“Harmony Hall” by Vampire Weekend 

Genre: Alternative/Indie Pop

Vampire Weekend is also releasing an album, entitled "Father of the Bride", on May 3rd. From the looks of it, this track relates to the theme of marriage/weddings present in the album's title, and it is a fun, upbeat song that I have been listening to a lot in the morning as I'm getting ready for class! Ezra Koenig's voice is so unique and can cover a broad range, and I highly recommend listening to some of the band's other work as well ("Step" from their 2013 release "Modern Vampires of the City" is one of my all-time favorite songs!).

“Ready to Let Go” by Cage the Elephant 

Genre: Alternative/Alternative Rock

So many great artists are (finally) releasing new albums this year, and Cage the Elephant falls into this category. This track is an absolute banger and doesn't stray much from the band's style in that it includes a lot of loud guitar and dynamic vocals. Like Vampire Weekend, Cage the Elephant has been around since the early 2000s, and I highly recommend checking out some of their earlier work as well (big fan of their most recent album, actually!)

“Apple Orchard” by Beach House 

Genre: Indie/Electronic

Beach House is one of my favorite bands of all time, as I find a kind of an ethereal, beautiful sadness in the dreamy style of instrumentalist Alex Scally and lucid vocals of singer Victoria Legrand. This track is from their 2006 self-titled debut and is probably one of my favorite songs they've ever released. The lyrics are poetic and perfect for the post-finals enjoyment of spring weather, in that they preach relaxation and restfulness, and the song's electronic rhythms echo the essence of spring as well. If you like this song, then I highly recommend checking out the band's other albums as well (Depression Cherry is one of my favorite albums of all time).

“April Come She Will” by Simon & Garfunkel 

Genre: 60s Pop

No spring playlist is complete without a little Simon & Garfunkel! This song is a classic, its timeless, poetic lyrics capturing the epitome of the coming of spring and all its glory. In fact, I consider the entire album (entitled Sound of Silence) to be perfect for the pleasantness and feelings of renewal/natural revitalization associated with the coming months, so be sure to give it a listen if you haven't heard it before!
