So, I got into Pottermore (along with Matt Benyo, Nathan Bou, and Brother Chan). We had been looking forward to our acceptance emails for some time now and they finally came Sunday. Of course I was at the DIA so I was clinging to my phone as Matt Benyo texted me about it. We were all being jerks to each other about the sorting and Matt kept saying I was going to get into Hufflepuff and I was all like NO WAY blah blah blah. Well, he got into Slytherin and I was really nervous about my sorting, but guess what, I GOT INTO SLYTHERIN TOO. Brother Chan got into Gryffindor and Nate got into Hufflepuff. I wanted either Slytherin or Gryffindor so that works for me. Monday and Tuesday I revolved my nights around the amount of time it took to brew potions because these potions work in real time. One of them took 95 minutes. 95 REAL LIFE MINUTES TO BREW. So, I'm sitting here like, alright I can go out, but I gotta be back in time to take care of this potion. It's ridiculous, but I have successfully brewed like 3 potions and earned house points. I want to duel Matt Benyo, but wizard duels are down. For those of you reading this that are feeling jealous; don't. That website sucks. It's broken almost all the time because so many people are trying to access it. Pretty much the only time it works is between 2 and 5 am (and it breaks then too). I think it's an interesting idea, but it needs to be fleshed out more. I was addicted it to it for the first couple days, but now I'm kinda meh about it. I think if everyone was into it, I'd be more into it. It's just not as fun after you get through all of the chapters and you're sitting there by yourself brewing potions.
