This Podcast is available on Apple Podcast, Google Podcast, IHeart Radio, Spotify and more!


This is not a word for word transcription.


I am taking a quiz on which house I would be in Hogwarts if I was attending the wizarding school!


Am I a Hugglepuff, a Slytherin, or a Griffindor, or am I a Ravenclaw?


So, I go to wizardingworld.com and look for the link, but when I go to the home page, I can't find the free sorting quiz! So, I'll go to my phone's link that I saved forever ago. Here's the link I saved:


https://www.wizardingworld.com/news/discover-your-hogwarts-house-on-wizarding-world


Click on Hogwarts Sorting Experience is underlined so that's a link...click on that. You have to make a Harry Potter fan club account, it's free don't worry! Once I submit the information, I'm all set!


A little about each house:


The Sorting Hat is one of my favorite characters-he's so grumpy and so fun!


His welcoming song tells some of the requirements to be in each house.


Griffindor:


"You might belong in Griffindor

Where dwell the brave at heart

Their daring, nerve and chivalry

Set Griffindors apart."


This song perfectly describes Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasely who were all in Griffindor!


Huffelpuff:


Notable members include Cedric Diggory, (the swoon worthy, handsome Twilight star, Robert Pattinson), Nyphodora Tonks (whose hair changes all colors) and Newt Scaminger (don't know who he is).


"You might belong in Hufflepuff

Where they are just and loyal.

Those patient Hufflepuff

Are true and unafraid of toil."


Some of the qualities I can do, but that patient one throws me right out of Hufflepuff.


Ravenclaw:


Notable members include Luna Lovegood (love her!), Gildroy Lockhart (preeny professor who has a hundred pictures of himself who writes a bunch of books of things he didn't do.) and Philius Flitwick (don't know him).


"Or yet In wise old Ravenclaw

If you've a ready mind

Of those in wit and learning,

Will always find their kind."


I would think Hermione Granger would fit in Ravenclaw really really well, but I guess the qualities of Griffindor, the brave at heart, the daring nerve of chivalry, edged out. But Luna Lovegood, I'm surprised to see her in this group too, but she did love to read about all things mythical and out of this world, so I guess this house suits her.


(Slythery) Slytherin:


Notable members include Severus Snape (love him!), Draco Malfoy, and Lord Voldemort.


"Or perhaps in Slytherin,

You'll make your real friends.

Those cunning folk use any means

To achieve their ends."


That is quite true of those slythery Slytherins. If you haven't seen the Harry Potter movies or read the books, don't discount the most horrible of characters.


If you haven't delved into the Harry Potter universe, please give it a try, it's amazingly imaginative and wonderfully creative and I highly recommend them!


I truly believe J.K. Rowling has achieved the ranks of the classics. Her books are timeless.


You can read more about the history of the houses, house ghosts and other links.


I'm not going to include the questions, so you can take the quiz for yourself, so thank you for joining me here, but drumroll please!!


I'm a Griffindor! Woohoo! That's the one I wished to be!! Awesome!!
