I’ve always sorted myself into Gryffindor. However, the reason for that has changed. Ten years ago, I would have said it was because I was brave and fearless. Now, I think it’s because I’m willing to face fear, but not fearless. Six years ago I faced fear when I almost lost my son to a drunk driver. My son survived, and he’s okay now. However, I know now that I am NOT fearless, but I can and will face fear. And I think that makes me a truer Gryffindor than I ever was before.

At first I thought I was a Gryffindor because I thought that Gryffindor was the coolest house out of all four houses. Also, I felt like it would be the most comfortable and homely one because I already knew so much about it because of Harry. However, a few years ago, I felt like I was more likely to be in Ravenclaw because I loved school, had good grades, and was a good student. That changed a little bit over the past few years because school has become increasingly more difficult, and I like high school less and less. However, I still think I am more a Ravenclaw than a Gryffindor because I still like the idea of school, even if I don’t like high school that much, and I am really excited for college. Additionally, one of my favorite colors is blue, and one of my favorite characters is Luna Lovegood, a Ravenclaw. Lastly, I believe that Ravenclaw is for people who are not merely book smart; it is also for people, like Luna, who are clever in many unique ways.

I would sort myself into gryffindor because I’m a gryffindor at heart. At one point I might have thought myself to be a hufflepuff. But I’m not. I would never be a syltherin just for the simple fact that syltherins are gifted at magic but usually use it wrong. Never considered being a ravenclaw. So I’m a gryffindor at heart and always will be!

I’ve always wanted to know everything. I was never the kind of girl to wish for one million crayons or the chance to become a popular singer because, well, those things are very, very, very unlikely. But, if there’s one irrational wish I’ve ever wished for, it’s to know everything. It is for this reason that I was sure that I would be a Ravenclaw because in my strive to know everything, I’ve become quite clever. But, you see, I think I’ve become too smart for my own good and made myself, for lack of a better word, arrogant. And not only am I rational, intellectual, and rather arrogant, I am also bold and tend to have more of a fight resoponse than a flee response to bad situations. So, as I’ve come to realize myself for my lovely faults, I’ve realized that, despite my other notable traits of cleverness and loyalty, I’ll always be a Gryffindor.

How wouldn’t want to be in Gryiffindor? House of the brave, and couragous. I automatically put myself in that house when I was younger in hopes that I would be more like the characters. It seems that as the books have grown and new characters have began to arise, it seems like I forgot there was 3 other houses. I’m not brave, evil, or have a love of cooking like the head house of Huffelpuff. I have always loved the wisdom of life, and I think I would be suited well in Ravenclaw Tower. A true Edgar Allen Poe in the making. (note: Raven joke)

I would sort myself into Gryffindor, and that hasn’t changed at all!

I have and still do sort myself into Ravenclaw. Even at eleven, I always had a thirst for knowledge. Sure I have a Gryffindor house tie, but that was because I wanted to be with Harry and his friends. Not because I felt any affinity to that house. I am know, and always will be, a proud Ravenclaw!

I too, at first, would have said Gryffindor…I think I do possess some of the qualities of Gryffindor…and perhaps at the age of 11 the hat may have considered putting me there. Now I think it would place me in Ravenclaw. Now that I am out of college, I learn about things I want to, and find it very enjoyable. My nose is often in a book, when I have the time.

When I was eleven, you could say I was a real Ravenclaw. Always top in class, eager to learn about anything. But as I grew up I think I became more of a hufflepuff. I’ve grown to be friendlier with people and I don’t lose my patience easily.
It is only now that I give mysef a thought about the underestimated house of hufflepuff. Not all hufflepuffs are like “chill let’s get some more butterbeer”. Actually I find it more honorable to work hard than to be brave or smart. OK so I’m a real coward…what’s wrong with that?

At first of course I wanted to be a Gryffindor like everyone else but not only because Harry, Hermione, and Ron were in it, but because my older sister is in that house. I look up to her a lot so of course I want to be with her. But I know that I would either be a Hufflepuff or a Ravenclaw. Hufflepuff- I am very diligent and hard-working, and I am loyal, and people are always commenting me on how I am always smiling and turning something bad into something good and I am respectful. Ravenclaw- I am intelligent and clever, but thats not why I would be a Ravenclaw, its cause I love learning and finding the truth.
