Random thing I totally forgot to mention: so in Cognitive Psych on Friday, we were in groups discussing these articles that we had also discussed on Wednesday, and my group only had one question left to discuss so we finished really early while everyone else was still discussing. So we had a bunch of time just sitting around waiting for everyone else to finish up, and somehow (I have absolutely no idea how, and it totally wasn't me who brought it up. And I had never met or talked to any of the people in my group before) we ended up discussing how much better Harry Potter is than Twilight but how the epilogue of HP kind of sucked and how it was pretty much J. K. Rowling screwing over non-Harry/Ginny and Ron/Hermione shippers. And I brought up Harry/Hermione, but someone else entirely brought up Harry/Draco, and another person brought up how J. K. Rowling's intention was probably "Haha, now no one can write fanfiction for immediately after book 7!" It's always really weird to me when people in real life know what fanfic is! But I found that really amusing, particularly since one of the people discussing this was a football player. That was pretty much the most fun part of my Friday.

I've been thinking a lot about grad school and what the hell I'm going to do after I graduate. Thoughts about post-college and careers and such )

Anyways, on a lighter note, I've seen this meme going around, and I think it'd be fun to do! Comment with any of my fandoms (you can list any that are in my info, and if you think you remember me talking about another fandom recently that isn't in there (especially if it's a new fandom since I haven't updated my info in a few months), you could ask that, too), and I'll tell you, for that fandom, my:
- OTP
- Runner-up
- Honorable mention(s)
- Crack pairing(s)
- Ship everyone else seems to like, but I don't

Now I should really start studying for my German test and try to get some work done before Wind Ensemble.

I spent the past week rereading all the Harry Potter books. This plus going through season 3 of Buffy on the weekends with my parents pretty much makes me feel like I'm in middle school again. It was pretty fun rereading HP. The first two books have gotten kind of boring (mostly because of how simplistic they are compared to the later books), but it doesn't take long to get through them, and once I have, there are no books I hate. Originally I remember not liking HBP much, but each time I read it, I like it more. And I've only read DH once, so I had forgotten a lot of stuff in it.

Rewatching Buffy has kind of been the same way. I remember a lot less from season 3 than I do 2, and even 1. Season 1 I think I rewatched most recently (since I got that last, I think. Or maybe I got 4 and 5 last, but I haven't gotten to rewatching 5 yet, and I didn't watch my DVDs of 4 after I bought them for some reason) and 2 is my favorite so I've... thought about it more, maybe? Or rewatched reruns of those eps more, maybe? But for some reason I've forgotten a lot about 3, even though it's my second favorite. It's loads of fun, though. We're going to get to Lover's Walk and The Wish this weekend, which I'm really excited about. I love those episodes.

I think I'm going to start rewatching Angel on my own, too. Mostly because I've been planning to for over a year, now, and everytime I watch Buffy or Leverage (because of Christian Kane) I get the urge to rewatch it. Plus, I've only ever seen seasons 1 and 2 all the way through. I've seen nearly all and know what happens in the episodes I haven't seen of season 3, but I've only seen a couple episodes from seasons 4 and 5, and it feels weird to call myself a fan of the show when I haven't seen so many episodes. Actually, I've still only seen like half of season 7 of Buffy, so I should probably get around to doing that too at some point. But I'll get to that in my Buffy rewatch with my parents, and I'm not as excited for that season anyways.

I only have about a month before I have to leave for school. While there are definitely things I miss about school, I'm starting to feel nervous and apprehensive and such about next year. I don't know. I wasn't very optimistic about last semester and that turned out a lot better than I expected, so maybe it won't be as bad as I think.

Ok, so now for stuff not related to Harry Potter. (Ok, mostly.)

I got my Macalester e-mail and found out my first year course. Unfortunately I got my third choice FYC, The History and Evolution of the Earth. It's kind of more my fourth choice just because my fourth was Intro to Psych and only reason I put it fourth was because I wanted the other section of it more that wasn't a FYC. I don't know, the class sounds interesting, and it's a residential course like I wanted, but... it's geology. And the professor is my advisor and I don't really have a great interest in the field. I really, really wanted that film analysis class. sigh. And the history class I put for second would be fine too, because history is actually something I would major in. Oh well. I hope the rest of my schedule is more what I wanted. If I didn't get into that intro to psych class I'm going to be really upset.

On a happier note, I got my Macbook on Thursday! I love it so far. It's been hardest to adjust to the smaller text sizes, but I think I'm ok with it now. And it always sucks to find out that programs I took for granted before only work with Windows and not Mac. I obviously had heard that before, but I didn't realize how many it was really true of. I bought Paintshop Pro for $70ish just 6 months ago, and it doesn't work on Macs! gah. So my choices are to either buy Photoshop for $700 or buy Parallels (and I guess I would have to buy Windows XP as well?) for $80. Yeah, pretty obvious which route I'm going to go. Besides, Parallels will be useful for a lot more than using PSP, so I think it'll be worth it.

The one HP-related thing, I did finish all 6 books by Friday night. It was a good thing I reread the sixth book, because I forgot everything that happened in it, except I guess the stuff that I was spoiled for before I read it, which would be the Snape stuff and all the relationship stuff. But I forgot about Scrimgeour and Slughorn and even the Horcruxes. Seriously. And some stuff like that I would read and be like "Oh, yeah, I remember that," but there was plenty of stuff I would read and wouldn't remember at all. It was kind of cool, like reading it for the first time again.

I saw that the first two episodes of Dexter season 2 have leaked online, and I'm trying to resist. I guess it's easier for me than those who watched it when it aired since I only finished season 1 a few weeks ago. I probably wouldn't be resisting if I had been waiting for months for the new season. But yeah, I think I'll leave it until it airs. And Dexter reminds me of the Emmy nominations, in which I'm slightly happy about some of them (Jenna Fischer! I wasn't expecting her to get nominated, and I'm so happy she did. She really deserves it), but that's mostly overshadowed by the fact that Friday Night Lights and Dexter got no major nominations. I was sure that if they both wouldn't be nominated, at least one would be for something. I mean, I watch House and Heroes (I can't comment on other shows nominated instead like Boston Legal and Grey's Anatomy because I don't watch them), and I enjoy them, but no way are either of them better than FNL or Dexter in just about any respect. Hugh Laurie, maybe, but the show as a whole, not so much. And I love Masi Oka and Hiro to bits, but I don't really feel he deserves his nom. Oh well. It's not like I expected to be thrilled with all the nominations.

Um, what else? I've watched a couple of leaked pilots so far (Reaper, Chuck, and Pushing Daisies), but I think I'll comment on them in a separate post later. Or I'll get lazy and forget. Haven't really been doing much today. It's like I have no idea what to do now that I'm done with Harry Potter. I'll have to figure something else out.

So I finished Harry Potter last night at 2 AM (I didn't get to start reading it until around 7 PM because of Alex's party) and I typed this up then just because I was afraid I would forget all my first impressions and stuff and also because I wanted to type it up before I saw anyone else's opinions because I was afraid they might diminish my love for the book (because I really, really loved it). But since I wrote them at 2 AM and I had only gotten about 3 hours of sleep the night before, they're pretty incoherent. But whatever, here's my reaction to the book. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Spoilers, obviously. )

Ok, so I think in retrospect, the third is still my favorite. I just can't not love that book more than any other. So my ultimate order is 3, 7, 5, 4, 6, 1, 2. I think. Part of me still kind of wants to put 7 first, and third seems too low for the 5th which I ended up loving more than ever on this reread. But whatever, it's not like it really matters. That's the gist of it, in any case.

I feel all excited and anxious and happy right now. This week is a good week:

1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows! This is slightly diminished by the fact that Alex is having his birthday party on July 21st (;lksjafd!!! He should know better. Sadly I don't think he reads Harry Potter) and it starts at 11 AM and I pre-ordered the book on Amazon so I probably won't get it until after I leave and I won't be able to start reading it until that night or the next day. Also, my mom just told me I have a dentist appointment at 10:30 that day. So I won't even get to his party until about noon. Still, it's coming out, and I'm excited for it.

2. Macbook will probably arrive sometime this week! Ok, it might not come until next week, but there's a good chance it'll be this week, and I'm looking forward to it.

3. TB test on Thursday. Not so much something I'm looking forward to, but I'll be relieved when it's over.

4. I got a checking out and applied for a credit card on Saturday! The debit card should arrive sometime this week. I mean, I had the Visabuxx card before which is like a debit card except only your parents can add money to it, so I was able to order things online and buy gas and such before, but this is cooler because I can add money myself and it's my account and they can't look at what I've bought and judge me for it.

5. Not so much this week, but in general, being more social. There was OotP and then Mrs. Bentley's thing and yesterday I went to dinner with people and then the Shakespeare in the Park thing was too crowded so instead we rented Shakespeare in Love and watched it at my house and that was fun, and there's Alex's party on Saturday which I am a little disappointed about just because of Harry Potter, but it'll be fun to see everyone, and I think Emma's going and it's the first time I will have seen her since graduation since she's been in Europe most of the summer so far and yeah. And I haven't seen much of my other friends either until this past week, so it'll be nice to see them again. I think it's starting to hit me how much I'll miss them.

6. Ok, so no more about specifically why this week is awesome, but more how I'm excited in general: going camping with my friends from August 5-8. It's going to be beach camping in Malibu and it's going to be a lot of fun, I think, and I'm looking forward to it.

7. Instead of flying up to school, we're going to take a road trip and leave 10 days before I need to get there and visit a lot of the west/midwest, which is cool because I haven't seen much of this area except for California (obviously), Tuscon, and Las Vegas. So it'll be nice to see the other parts. And I had wanted to go on vacation this summer so yeah. It'll be fun.

I don't know how much I'm going to be on-line this week just because I'm terrified of spoilers for Harry Potter. I was spoiled for absolutely everything in HBP (everything from the major stuff at the end to all the relationships in the book) and it was partially my fault but this time I don't want to be spoiled for anything. It shouldn't be too hard as I still have books 4-6 to reread so that should take up most of the week.

Went to the midnight showing of Harry Potter on Tuesday with a bunch of friends which was a lot of fun. And I really liked the movie. When I first came out I was just like "Well, that was better than I thought it would be" but the more I think about it, the more I really loved it. It's my favorite so far of the movies (well I've only seen the second half of Chamber of Secrets. And I totally hate Prisoner of Azkaban which I think is a very unpopular opinion but I love the book so much and I don't think anything could have lived up to what I hoped for it to be like. I think maybe if I rewatch it I would like it better. But at this point the 5th is totally my favorite). Of course they had to cut out a bunch of stuff, but that's to be expected, and once you get past that I think they did a good job of capturing the tone of the book. And it's just shot so beautifully. The cinematography is excellent.

I've been starting my reread of the series and something jumped out of me. Spoilers only for the first book. )

Anyways, I've been spending a lot more being social this week than I have since graduation. There was the Harry Potter thing and then Wednesday there was a small party-ish gathering thing in the band room for Mrs. Bentley's resignation which was nice and on Sunday I'm going to dinner with some friends and then we're going to watch Taming of the Shrew for this Shakespeare in the Park thing. So that'll be fun.

I ordered a Macbook (my graduation present) yesterday! I'm excited for it to come. I've never had a Mac before so I'm hoping I'll get used to it and like it and such. Hopefully it won't break down as frequently as my past few computers have (although those were all Dells and I've heard Dells are the worst).

Less happy and exciting, I'm getting a TB test on Thursday since it's required for college. If you don't know, I absolutely hate going to the doctor and needles. I'm so terrified of needles, and I swear I must have a much lower tolerance for pain than everyone else on the planet because I just cannot handle shots and blood tests and such. Everyone always says it won't be as bad as I think, but then it always is (or it's worse). I at least feel better that I have an appointment set and I won't just be worrying knowing I need to make an appointment before August 1st, but having no idea when it will be.

AP scores came in the mail. I got a 5 in Calculus BC and 4s in English Lit, French, Physics B, and Chemistry. I'm slightly disappointed that I got a 4 in English just because I thought I had done better than that but I did think the multiple choice was pretty tough. I'm very happy about the rest though, especially French (since that means if I do send my scores, even though I said I wasn't going to, I've tested out of the language requirement), considering I didn't study at all for any of them. I'm very surprised about Physics and Chem since I skipped several free response questions for both and BS-ed answers and such. But whatever, not complaining. Now I just need to decide if I'm going to send in my scores or not, because the main reason I decided not to was because I didn't think I could get a 3 or higher in French and it was the only requirement I could actually test out of. But I did, so. Yeah. I'll think about it.

I watched Dexter and Skins over the weekend and I loved them both. I'm not going to make huge posts about them like I did about Friday Night Lights, 30 Rock, and The West Wing, but I thought they were both great. Dexter was just so well put together and I'm afraid a second season won't be able to live up to the first one, but I'm hoping I'll be proved wrong. And Skins I didn't think I'd really like much after the first episode because it didn't really seem like my type of show, but I ended up falling in love with a lot of the characters (particularly Cassie and Sid and Maxxie) and it was just a lot of fun to watch, so I'm looking forward to the second season of that as well.

Tomorrow I'm going to the midnight showing of Harry Potter with some people. It should be fun. It'll also probably be good for me to get out of the house, since I haven't been outside for more than like 5 minutes at a time since Warped Tour, and that was over a week ago.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do next. What I really feel like doing is rereading all the Harry Potter books, but I want to do that closer to when the 7th book starts and I can finish books 1-3 in one day and 4 and 5 in like... 3 days I think and 6 only took me one day I remember, so I'd want to wait at least until this weekend. Plus, Jackie still has my fourth book (I should ask her to bring it tomorrow night. And I should remember to bring the $95.06 I owe her.) so I kind of want to wait until I have that back for sure.

Photos from the Photo Meme )

I did remember one comment I wanted to make after going through the first 5 books: I've never shipped any of the characters in Harry Potter (mostly because I started reading it before I knew what ships even were). But after this last reread, I paid more attention to the hints, and I can't believe that I didn't notice how blatant Ron/Hermione is. I mean, I noticed Ron's jealousy in Book 4 during the Yule Ball, but that was kind of it, and I just kind of... ignored that, I suppose. But reading through them again, it's really obvious that Ron has feelings for Hermione. Don't know about Hermione, but I definitely don't see anything between her and Harry. Pure friendship, is all. There's definitely something between Ron and Hermione, though.

Yeah, I suppose that was it.

Ah, it seems my concerns about the new Harry Potter book not coming until sometime next week were unfounded. I checked the UPS tracking thing this morning, and the book is in Aliso Viejo right now, which is 10 miles from where I live. And according to my mom, it's the center for all UPS stuff in Orange County, or... something like that. So, it should be arriving tomorrow. Awesome.

Also, I finished the 5th book this morning. I had some comments I was going to make about it and the other books, but I don't really remember what they are, and I don't really feel like going on about it now. Still, looking forward to tomorrow, when I should be getting my book.

Today is a very blah day. I was planning on redoing my walls, but I kind of don't feel like it right now. Eh, maybe in an hour or two. I should make some icons, as it's been awhile since I made an icon post, and I have a few small sets completed, but... I don't know. I think I'll wait until I finish a small Buffy set, and then post the sets I have done. I get in and out of icon funks, where for a few weeks I'll do nothing but make icons, and then the next couple weeks I just have no motivation to make any icons at all, and I'm definitely in a no motivation funk right now. Hopefully I'll feel more inspired towards making icons in a week or two.

Look what I spent 2 hours last night doing! )

Two days until the new Harry Potter! I'm getting kind of worried that mine won't come when I thought it would, though. =/ I mean, originally it said on the Barnes and Noble site that if you ordered it before a certain time, then it would come by Saturday, which I did. But I chose Standard Delivery because I didn't want to pay extra (meaning it comes in 3-8 business days), and I'm afraid that means it won't come until sometime next week. Man, that would really suck if that happened. I've been looking forward to it all week. Oh well. Just have to wait and see.

Also, Emmy nominations are in )

Painting's all done. Just waiting for the paint fumes to go away before the birds can come back. My mom said that we should be able to get them late this afternoon, though, so yay! I'll post pictures of the newly painted rooms once the furniture's in the right place and the stuff is hanged back up on the walls and so on. Right now it just kind of looks like a jumbled mess.

All right, now that I have a digital camera, I can do the photo meme thing! Which means, anyone who feels like it should comment to this post and let me know something (or somethings - request multiple things, that's fine with me; any excuse to take more pictures with my camera!) you want me to take a picture of. Then, in a post in a few days, I'll post all the pictures that were requested.

Finished Book 4 last night. I think that's definitely my second favorite. It's really close to Book 3, but there's something about Book 3 I love more than every other book. I'll start Book 5 sometime later today.

Couldn't fall asleep last night for some reason, so at 1:30, I decided to start my homework for SAT class. After doing a bunch of pages of math by flashlight (I wasn't supposed to be awake) and without my glasses/contacts (both were in the bathroom), I quickly became exhausted, and fell asleep around 2:00. Of course, now I'm completely and utterly exhausted. sigh. But at least I don't have much more to do for SAT class today. I just need to rewrite my essay, but since he graded me a 9.5-10.5, there really isn't much for me to correct.

All right, get commenting so I have an excuse to take a bunch of pictures. And if you know any other memes like this that allow me to use my digital camera a bunch, let me know. :)

Guess what! )

So anyways, I was feeling kind of bad about my SAT diagnostic test scores, but it turns out that everyone in my class did worse on the reading. There was an average drop of 30-40 points, and I dropped 50, so it's not too terrible in comparison to everyone else. And I also found that I was the only person to get a 12 in the class, so that made me feel better about myself. Plus, our instructor asked us if there was any disruption during the test and we said that the 24 hour fitness below us was playing music so loud we could hear it, and also the timer that told us when each section was over and the 10 and 5 min marks kept beeping randomly, so we'd think the section was over when it wasn't. He said that could've contributed to the drop because it messed with our concentration.

Wow, only 4 days until the new Harry Potter book. I'm actually getting really excited for it, which is surprising. I usually don't look forward to the new Harry Potter books that much, but this time I am.

Ok, off to finish book 4.

The SAT diagnostic test didn't go so well last night. =/ The essay I wrote was a lot worse than my last one (not nearly enough examples), and I was having a harder time with a lot of the questions. Oh well. It's not like it counts for anything, it's just to see how much you've progressed. And, apparently, I haven't progressed much at all.

Today is my parent's 30th anniversary. Crazy. My mom brought it up this morning, that we'd be going out to dinner and such, so I finally asked her about the digital camera. She told me to ask my dad about it, because I could probably get him to buy it for me (...which is true. He spoils me a lot more than my mom, mostly because he's guilty about not being around much when I was younger). When I told her it's only $80, she seemed impressed, and told me to mention to my dad how cheap it is and that if I use it like 4 times, that makes up for all the money I'd spend buying disposable cameras and getting the pictures developed. So, anyways, hopefully by tonight, I will have a new digital camera.

SAT class once again today. Joy. It's not that I don't like the class, it's just... if I had a choice between doing work and thinking for 3 hours or staying on the computer and possibly making icons and reading more Harry Potter, ...well I think it's pretty obvious what I'd choose. Plus, while it doesn't feel like it takes that long when I'm there, 3 hours is a pretty large chunk of the day.

Watched Queer as Folk 509 )

Edit: They e-mailed me the scores of the diagnostic test I took yesterday. Somehow I managed a 12 on my essay (perfect score). That's insane. Of course, I was right on the rest: I did worse on the reading (640 compared with a 690 last time), and my overall score was worse (2010 compared to a 2050). And I did a lot worse on the grammar (63 instead of a 72) which is surprising, since I was doing really well on that in class. sigh. Oh well. At least I did well on the essay! And I did improve upon my math score by a little.

Had a tenor sax lesson this morning. Blah. Not fun.

Painting's started. Last week he did the textures on the wall, this week he's actually painting stuff. My mom's office is done, and it looks really nice. It's this light greenish color, and it sounded bad to me when she told me about it, but I think it looks really good. I'll take pictures if I end up getting my digital camera.

I had this plan to talk to my mom about the digital camera at lunch today. I figured we'd go to Golden Spoons for lunch since it's right on the way back from my tenor lesson. It'd be good because neither of us would have anything to read so we'd have to just talk to each other, and I could bring up that. Unfortunately, it failed, as my mom told me we were going to pick up food from In-n-Out. sigh. Oh well. There aren't any other really oppurtune moments to ask, so I think I'll just wait till Tuesday. I mean, we're having dinner together first, so I figure I can bring it up then. Plus, if I bring it up while we're actually at the Spectrum, it'll seem less out of the blue, I think. I kind of wanted to ask beforehand just in case my mom would be all "Well, we still have the old one, see if it works" because if it actually did work, then... I could just use it and not cost my parents any money and not feel guilty for getting another. But I looked for it last year sometime where I had last seen it, at the top of the closet in the family room, and it wasn't there. I don't know if it was put in the attic or given away or what. But whatever, I'll just ask tomorrow, I suppose.

Oh, and I told my mom about ordering the Harry Potter book. She was just like "Oh, that's cool," and when I explained I was letting her know so she wouldn't think I stole her credit cards, she said "Oh, I would never assume that. I would be curious, but I'd ask you about it first." But yeah, anyways. It should come on Saturday, according to Barnes and Noble's website. I keep thinking July 16 is Friday, not Saturday, for some reason. I need to get it straight in my head. blah.

I finished the first three Harry Potter books yesterday. Man, I really love the third. I don't know what about it it is that I love (perhaps because I absolutely love Sirius and Lupin, and I love Harry finally having some sort of parental figure who really cares about him), but everytime I read it... blah. It's totally my favorite out of all the ones I've read. Started #4 this morning, but I probably won't finish it for a day or two. I have the SAT diagnostic test tonight from 4-8:30, and SAT class from Tuesday-Thursday, plus going out tomorrow after SAT class. I should be able to finish both 4 and 5 by Saturday, though. I'd be very surprised if I didn't manage to.

Because of the painting starting, my mom took the birds to the vet yesterday to board them. Can't come back till the paint fumes go away, which won't be till Friday at the earliest. Awwww. I miss my birds.

All right, that's all. I think I should review some stuff for the SAT diagnostic test and then I'll probably read some more Harry Potter.

I finished the essay due for my SAT class. Didn't take very long, either. Less than an hour. The prompt was pretty easy, too. I'm satisfied with it.

I found this Barnes and Noble gift card on my desk last night that can be used online (I believe my dad gave it to me for my birthday, last January), so on a whim, I pre-ordered the new Harry Potter book. I was wondering how I would get it, since I have no cash (well, $3, but I'm thinking it'd cost more than that) and I don't know when I'd even be able to get it, and... yeah. And with the last book, I waited like 6 months to get it (yeah, I'm not that big of a fanatic of the books. I really like them, but I'm not into the fandom, and I don't care about reading them immediately, really) and I didn't want to wait quite as long. But then there was this card! The book wasn't even the first thing that came to my mind with the card, but I went onto the Barnes and Noble webpage, and it was the first thing on the page, and I instantly thought "Oh, wow! I could just buy it with this card!" So, I did. ...I should probably tell my mom about this before it comes, though, or else she might think I randomly stole one of her credit cards to buy the new Harry Potter book, and yeah. That would be bad.

I really, desperately want a digital camera. I've wanted one for awhile, really, but I'm always too afraid/guilty to ask for one. The thing is, I have one. Or had. I don't know. I was really into photography in 6th grade and somehow became the school's digital photographer (um, that sounds more prestegious than it is. I took like 5 pictures, and I don't think they were ever used anywhere) and I all of a sudden wanted a digital camera like the one I was using, and my parents actually got me one for Christmas, but it was totally different than the one I had used before and I couldn't figure out how to use it, so... I never really bothered. I used it, like, once. Plus, back then, I didn't really use the internet much, so I didn't really have a use for one. Now I could actually figure out how to use one and I'd have a use for it. And I wouldn't have to buy all those disposable cameras everytime I wanted to take pictures. I mean, in the long run, it would probably save my mom money (particularly because I don't even want something "state of art" or whatever. There's this one at this site I was looking at that I'd be happy with that's only $80).

So, on Tuesday, is my parent's 30th wedding anniversary, and my mom told me that we would go out to eat at the Spectrum together, and after that we could go shopping. I don't know if this means it's just an oppurtunity for me to buy things (...um. I have $3. Not much will happen with then, in that case) or if my parent's would consider buying anything, but if they would, I was looking at the Spectrum website and there's this store there called Ritz Cameras, or something. And they sell digital cameras, including the one I was talking about that's only $80. I think I could possibly convince my parents to get it for me (I'd even offer to like do the bird cages all summer to pay off the cost, if my mom wanted me to) but I'm still too kind of guilty to ask. blah. I'll need to work up the nerve sometime soon. I'd like to ask before we actually go so it's not a total out-of-the-blue thing.

All right, now that I've actually pre-ordered the new Harry Potter book and I know that it won't be another 6 months before I read it, I think I'll go ahead and start rereading them. I've been meaning to for awhile, actually, since I haven't read them in like a year. So yes. Off to do that.
