Harry Potter is My Life
(Sydney, NSW, Australia )
What does Harry Potter mean to me?
Well I read the 1st Harry potter book (Philosopher's Stone)when I was about 5yrs old, I am now 16.
I never use to be the kind of kid that actually enjoys reading & I still don't unless it is of course a Harry potter novel. The 1st book was truly AMAZING, it was certainly an experience.
From the moment I first read Harry Potter was the moment that my life started. Harry Potter to many people is a HUGE part of their life, but to me it is my LIFE or at least my Childhood.
Once I had finished the 1st book it wasn't very long after that the movie had been released in cinemas. I can remember sitting there with my eyes glued to the screen. Every time the date had been released for either the next book or movie I started counting down the days.
Harry potter has been a truly AMAZING adventure. I have LOVED every moment that I have spent watching, reading or even playing the video games of Harry potter. I live in Australia & went over to Orlando, Florida in 2011 just to go to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
I have about $700 dollars worth of collectibles, meaning, wands, T-shirts, Necklaces etc with plans to get a HELL of alot more. Throughout my life at Primary/Elementary school & even in high school I get teased about my OBSESSION with Harry Potter & get told to get over Harry Potter but giving up Harry Potter is like throwing away a Million dollars!
That is how much it means to me. Harry Potter has taught me: Courage, Love, Bravery, Friendship, Loyalty, Family & so on. To me Harry Potter is like a need.
We can't live with out oxygen & I can't live without Harry Potter, at least not yet. H.P. is like my special dose of Marijuana. It is a drug to me. I can never get enough of Harry Potter. I have watched the movies so many times that I say the words before they are even said in the movies.
I could probably read the book backwards & upside down & still say every word. I can hum every song from each OST, I know so much about Harry Potter that if I knew my school work as well as I did Harry Potter I would get A+ in everything.
I can relate to each character throughout the series in so many ways. Each movie/book is a different magical experience. I can't explain how much Harry Potter means to me in words because I don't think there are any words that I know of to use.
