I was wearing my Hufflepuff shirt today and an employee of store I was shopping in said to me "A Hufflepuff! Not the best house, Slytherin is better." I rolled my eyes and replied "Jk Rowling's favorite house is Hufflepuff." and walked away. I'm so sick of the Hufflepuff hate.

I mean I don’t know if that really counts as hufflepuff hate but good for you showing your house pride!!

Hi excuse me, do you or any of the other Ravenclaws on this blog have experience in skipping a grade(or grades)? If so, would you be so kind to tell me is it a good or a bad idea, how did you manage to do it and what about leaving your friends? I know this blog isn't exactly about it, but I thought this is one of the best places I could ask. Thank you~ (if you don't answer I fully understand and sorry to have bothered you ^^)

I honestly have no experience with this because it’s not really a thing in the uk, but here’s things I think you should consider

  • missing out on experiences, depends what grade you’re skipping I guess but are you okay with missing graduation, prom etc
  • being younger than everyone else, particularly when it comes to drinking, clubbing etc
  • might be easier to get scholarships? 
  • if you’re staying in the area it’s definitely possible to keep up with your old friends, it’s just a bit more effort
  • are you moving into a grade where everyone will already have established friend groups? if you’re moving into e.g. senior year it might be harder to make friends than if you’re skipping straight to uni
