It’s been almost 11 years since the last book and seven years since the last film, but there’s just something about Harry Potter that just keeps us wanting more.
So much so that J.K Rowling eventually launched Pottermore in 2012, Quidditch became an actual sport (sadly we still can’t fly), and the LEGO game adaption saw critical acclaim. We can find the wonderful fauna through the Fantastic Beast series or visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Lego just announced a new 6,020-piece set based off of Hogwarts Castle) and you can wave a magic wand while learning how to code.
While us Potterheads resign to the fact that we may never ever get our letter from Hogwarts, or its other magical school counterparts, here are 7 ways Harry Potter made our Muggle lives that much more magical.
We don’t always have our sh*t together, but it’s okay.
As much as we curate our Instagram page and Instastories to look like we’re always having a ball of a time, the reality is we don’t have it all together like we wish we did. The Potterverse goes to show that even with magic, you can’t uncomplicate things as much as you’d like. Sometimes, you just gotta roll with the punches and emerge the victor. Dumbledore says in The Prisoner of Azkaban: “Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”. So don’t worry if you spilled coffee all over your chic, all-white ensemble or had your bosses scream at you the entire day and basically calling you a Squib—you will come out stronger and better.
