"Some days, you feel like the world is against you. And everyone around you seems so mean and ugly. There are times I just burn with hate. In those times... I am ugly, too. I don't want to hate. I want to be kind, and waken the kindness in others." - Amy Jellicoe
I wanted to be Ravenclaw cause I like thinking I'm smart and I love logic puzzles and stuff, but Pottermore put me in Gryfindor which surprised me. But I am oddly and unnecessarily loyal. Like, if I've been following the same car on the freeway for a long time I begin to think of them as my friend and feel defensive if someone merges between us and I'm pretty sure that's not normal.
My school didn't have houses. We didn't even have homeroom.

Until a few weeks ago I didn't even know that there are really schools who devide people into houses. At schools here people are just devided into classes, which means in year x there is class Xa, Xb, ... depending on how many people there are. Sometimes in year 1 and 2 they give the classes names like colours or animals to make it easier to remember and more fun for little kids.

I see myself as Ravenclaw, though my sympathies were with Hufflepuff, form the moment the houses were first described, and I was a bit sad Harry didn't get into it.
Since I was at a boarding school (though not as a boarder) we had literal houses. They were called after various things - former headmasters, famous old pupils and whatever. Some were just old names of the house.
'The difference between the two sides of the schism is that one side puts out fires, and the other starts them' - Klaus Baudelaire.
I was at a boarding school, even as a boarder, so we had actual houses too, but there was just one house for year 7-10 and one for 11-12 for boys and girls each, and they just had normal house numbers so we called them the house numbers.
