All About Me!  
Name: Ella
Age: 16
Location: Utah

Why did you join Hogwarts Home?:

I’ve been pretty much a lurker in the Harry Potter community for some time now. This is my way of jumping in and getting involved.

Also, sorting communities have always interested me. I decided on Hogwarts Home instead of others because it’s still growing and it seems “safe” in the way that the members don’t seem like they’re in it just to flame people. In my time as a lurker, I’ve seen a surprising number of sorting communities that are simply flaming grounds. Nobody here was extremely rude so I joined!

Why do you think you were put in Ravenclaw?:

I’m always analyzing and daydreaming, my brain’s never at rest. I love books and I like to think of myself as logical. I pretty much have all the traits, and also a few more : )

I’m a Ravenclaw inside and out!

Where are you going to be active in this community?:

One of the things that interest me about sorting communities is the classrooms, so I’ll definitely be active there. I’ll also participate in the house cup activities and the sorting.

My goal here is to make new friends, so I’ll try to be as active as I can be.

Tell us about yourself!:

I’m in High School and see a tutor one on one each week for my studies. I recently applied to volunteer at a botanical garden because I’m infatuated with flowers and would like to know how to actually grow them without them dying within a week.

I’m also an entertainment junkie. My favorite television show with always be Buffy the Vampire Slayer, although Arrested Development is also a favorite. Since those two shows are over now (damn you FOX!) I watch Veronica Mars obsessively every week. I could write essays and essays on those three shows, but I won’t scare you guys away.

I’m not as in to movies as TV, but I’ll watch Love, Actually every time it’s on HBO and I own Garden State for when I’m home sick and eating chicken noodle soup.

I’m obsessed with all things Jenny Lewis, so naturally my favorite band is Rilo Kiley. My favorite singer is Tori Amos because she is a genius.

So yes, my life consists around television and music. I’m so thrilling, as you can now see.
Mood: awake
Music: Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins - The Big Guns

welcome, fellow Ravenclaw!
I'm always daydreaming too... one day a friend told another friend (who repeated it to me) that I looked as if I were "in my world" lol
I love Love, actually and Garden State!
oh and I'm still waiting for my country to air VM because everyone keeps telling me it's so good... grrr...

My mom always tells me I'm "off in my own little world" whenever I'm thinking or rambling on about something or other. It's become some sort of inside joke between us. *rolls eyes*

I usually can't watch a movie more than once or twice, but Garden State and Love, Acually are just so good. I never get tired of them.

Also, Veronica Mars is amazing. I really hope you won't forget to watch it when your country starts airing it.

Any Buffy fan I like immediately! I have a strange and twisted love for that show.

Heh I saw Tori Amos a few years ago in concert. She was AMAZING! I still can't see how such a tiny thing can have such a big voice.

Welcome to the Common room!

Yes, Buffy the Vampire Slayer tends to bring out the strange and twisted in people. I watched it for the first time when I was about nine or ten and I was never the same ;)

I saw a Tori Amos concert in August. I was sitting kind of far back, but my trusty binoculars didn't let me down. I was blown away.

I'm glad to be in the common room! It seems like a nice place to be :)
