LOOK AT WHAT ARRIVED IN THE MAIL TODAY!!

My very own Hogwarts acceptance letter! This is, what, 7 years late? Can I still be a first year at 18? I’ve been waiting like hell for this when I was 11. If only I can drop everything right now, leave the university and fly straight to Hogwarts, I would. My dream of being a witch in JK Rowling’s wizarding world never ceases and will always be there.

Okay, so I know that I’m only kidding myself with this. This did not come from Hogwarts, this came from my friend. She made me one and sent it through mail just because she misses me. It’s awesome, though. It looks very legit and all with the parchment paper she used. I really love her so much. She knows I’ve been having this Harry Potter withdrawal ever since the last film ended. This is so nice and it was immediately added to my Harry Potter collection, together with the 7 books, 8 DVDs, 3 shirts, 2 rings, and 3 necklaces. I’m still hoping to get my hands on a time-turner, though. Plus, when I get my own job, I swear I would go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios, Florida. I cannot die without first visiting that place.
