29 Things No One Tells You About Being A Harry Potter Fanatic

Harry Potter and Never Being Able to Move On.

1. You’ll never stop waiting for your Hogwarts letter.

But don’t worry, it’ll come this year.

2. You’ll spend the rest of your life rereading the books.

3. And they’ll get better each time.

4. You’ll name ALL of your pets after Harry Potter characters.

And maybe (most likely) your children.

5. You’ll never really get over the death of Dobby.

At least he died a free elf.

6. You’ll never stop wishing there were just one more book release.

7. Or just one more movie premiere.

JUST ONE MORE.

8. You’ll spend copious amounts of money funding trips to the various Harry Potter studios around the world.

Take me to your Forbidden Forest.

11. You’ll spend an insane amount of time looking through the Harry Potter tag on Tumblr.

THE MUGGLE FEELS.

20. Every year on Sept. 1, you will feel a ping of sadness at realizing you’re not on your way to Hogwarts.

Maybe Fred won’t die this time???

23. And you’ll slowly become highly sensitive to someone calling you a Muggle.
