Harry Potter

The Harry Potter fever is starting to get on to me...again! 2 weeks to go until the screening day of the last movie in the series.  Harry Potter has been a part of my growing up years.  I can still remember the days I spent reading all the books in the series.

I almost missed the 12mn New Year fireworks because I was engrossed reading the 1st to 3rd book.

I read the 4th book while studying for the final exams during college.

I printed a "leaked" copy of the 5th book, and took it to a photocopy center near our school to have it "hard-bound".

I took an early break from work when the 6th book was released just to make sure I am able to get a copy on the 1st day, read thru the night and cried my eyes and heart out when Dumbledore died.

I reserved a copy of the 7th book and read it in about 3-4 days because I wanted to find out how Voldemort would die (oh, yes I'm pretty sure he is the one who dies).

I watched all the movies, most of which during the 1st screening day.  I bought a lot of Harry Potter stuffs.  A lot of which I never got the chance to use.

And now the book series has ended and the final movie will be out in a few days.

Feels like a part of me is yelling, "Grow up and move on!"

Harry Potter was a part and will always be a part of my younger years.  And this is something that I deem worth sharing to my daughter and other kids to come.

Harry Potter...the Boy who Lived...see you on July 14!
