My Perfect Childhood
by Ruth Casey
I remember being took to the cinema for every Harry Potter film. I didn't love it all back then, just liked it. But then when I was about 9 I decided to read the books so that was when all the films were out apart from Half Blood Prince and Deathly Hallows.
As soon as chapter 1 I immediately entered a world that I could call home. The books were, or rather are, amazing and are the best I'd ever read and I regret not having read them before.
Ever since then I have been a hardcore Potter fan and I collect all the merchandise and posters. In fact, anything to do with Harry Potter or says Harry Potter on it, I will buy it.
I am a self confessed Harry Potter nerd. I cried during Deathly Hallows Part 2 at the Prince's tale because I can relate to it as, like Snape, there is someone in my life I have always loved from the first time I saw him. I have been to the wizarding world of Harry Potter at Universal Studios and as soon as I was inside I felt at home, where I felt that I truly belonged there.
But it's not always good...
Since quite a lot of people know about my Harry Potter obsession I tend to get called the Harry Potter freak or just freak, whatever. I get bullied because of it and I was ill in hospital with appendicitis on the night of Deathly Hallows premiere so I couldn't go and I couldn't go to the midnight screening of Deathly Hallows because I was ill then too.
Even after July 15th the magic hasn't ended and never will, Harry Potter is forever in my heart and made my childhood complete...<3
long live the greatest story of all time ...<3
