Yes that is me and my hair all over my face, I know it’s kinda stupid but I posted it anyway lol. And yes, that’s Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in paperback. My bestfriend gave that to me few days after my birthday last August – I know this will break his heart K. As far as he knows, I’m a pretty fan of Harry Potter books and that I haven’t read the last installment. I was. So there, there.
After two months, the book is now a hospitable place for pixie dust. I haven’t even read the first few pages.
And it surprises me that I have grown out my once deep interest for the book. During my early years, I would excitedly read all the Harry Potter books – I borrowed all the six books – without putting them down. I would really feel the rush, the emotions, and the thrill. I loved all the Quidditch games, and the characters, and the classes, and everything! I even had a list of all the spells that were mentioned in each book.
When the first Harry Potter film came out in 2001, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, my addiction to the books and movies grew as large as I could have imagined. I watched the movie five times in cinema houses and more than 50 times in VCD – the mother bought me an original copy, how sweet. I almost memorized each and every line! I spotted all the book and movie differences – that annoyed me so much that time, because the movie was far from what I have imagined it in my head (but oh well, the second HP movie was far more disappointing) – but there were awesome changes as well like when they altered the Quidditch pitch from a regular stadium to an open field one with spectators sitting on high towers surrounding the pitch. Also, most of my internet surfing time during those days were spent in Mugglenet.Com – sniffing on HP gossips and stuff. The guys are still up until now.
And oh how I love Daniel Radcliffe! And and how I thought I looked a lot like Emma Watson! Haha that was the most silly thought I had ever had in connection with the Harry Potter craze – that Emma and I were sisters in our past lives! I remember using her pictures in my social networking profiles. Tsk tsk.
Anyhoo, I can go on and on and on talking about Harry Potter and all the stuff I loved and knew about it but one blog entry would not suffice. And… what’s my point again? Ocrap I’ve almost forgot! What I’m trying to say here is maybe I don’t like Harry Potter anymore. Ouch.
Maybe, just maybe, I didn’t love it that much to make me hang on to it up until my adulthood. Or maybe it I’ve realized it wasn’t worth hanging on to anyway. Or maybe it was worth it but it wasn’t anymore. Or maybe I’ve just changed my priorities – work and blogging and makeup and managing finances is now more important than memorizing lines, collecting stuff, reading all news and gossips and stuff, and losing myself into that imaginary wizard-ing world.
Or maybe.. I wasn’t really talking about Harry Potter after all.
So what’s your share of the Harry Potter craziness?
