Happy Birthday, Harry!

“charleneajose”

If you’ve been a reader of my blog for a long time already, you would know how much I love reading (and re-reading) books. But out of all the books I’ve read, the Harry Potter Series will always be the one closest to heart. I have never read a book with so much fervor, so much emotion, so much feels, than with the HP series. I have so much love for it, in fact, that I’ve read every book four times for the past 21 years of my existence. 

And to commemorate the birthday of Harry Potter (and J.K. Rowling, you amazing woman you) I’ve listed seven memorable quotes in honor of the seven books that became a huge part of my childhood, as well as the lives of millions of readers around the world.

What is left of my physical collection. Don’t you just hate it when people do not know how to return borrowed books? (sigh)

Hello there! So let me tell you how my day went today. Mama woke me up this morning (she beat my alarm clock by exactly a minute haha) I then I took a shower, took such a long time in choosing what to wear (even though I’ll be in uniform) and was about to fix my hair when I suddenly felt a jump and that’s when I really woke up (and realized it was already 6am) Have you ever experienced that? When you’re almost awake, then decide sleep again for a few more minutes, and then all of a sudden you are doing things an awake person would be doing only you’re still dreaming. It’s so weird and I’d always panic because in those dreams I would either be always late for class (like, after lunch hour late) or be in a really scary situation (bathroom full of lizards. Ugh!) Fortunately, I wasn’t late (unlike my very unfortunate experience yesterday where I got stuck in traffic for over an hour - standing because the bus was full and get this, we haven’t even reached NLEX that time yet. I should really start talking to my parents about getting a dorm soon)

I got to school just in the nick of time (though being me, I would prefer being at least 15 minutes early. Nerd alert) Humanities and Literature came and went as always, we had a skit for Informatics and yet another quiz for Bioethics (that of which I got a perfect score!) When it was time to go home, I went over to Krizia’s for a while and went ahead to finish the project above. I actually started on it last night but I got too sleepy and I figured drawing while on a semi-conscious state was a bad idea so I decided to just finish it in the morning. So anyway, I asked Krizia to pass it for me because I wouldn’t be attending my classes tomorrow. Don’t get me wrong. I do not like cutting classes and I don’t even think about being absent (unless there is a valid reason, of course) I don’t even like being late. But we have a family outing tomorrow and would be away for three days and I simply cannot miss it. I did my projects and assignments beforehand to somehow make up for the guilt though. I feel like such a bad person! (Again, nerd alert)

So that’s about it. You can see the finished product from the photos above. Does it look familiar? You’re right. It’s inspired by my blog header! :D

I’ll be off to Puerto Galera tomorrow. I’m not sure whether I’ll go on hiatus but I promise to update as much as I can. Please don’t forget to follow me on instagram as well (@charleneajose) I’m either there when I’m not posting on my blog or on my Twitter.

By the way, tomorrow is the last day of my giveaway with R&K Manila. Get a chance to win fabulous necklaces! Click here to join now.

I hope you all had a great day today. Thank you for reading! :D
