Hello, Harry!

You could say it was love at first sight. I was in my last year of college when I first laid eyes on Harry. There I was minding my own business when my uncle gave my little brother, Rap, a set of books. Little did I know my world will never be the same.

They were the first 3 books of the Harry Potter series. I read Harry Potter & the Prisoner of Azkaban first because my brother was still reading the other two. I couldn't believe that I liked... no wait, loved this children's book! I  mean, I'm supposed to be a teenager full of angst, cursing & hating my life. Instead, I was giddy like a little girl.

You see, I was transported to another world. A magical world to be exact. Where instead of a cellphone as a must-have, you get to have a wand; where your best friend is a giant & your pet is an owl. I always thought that my Chemistry professor was a "terror" but found out she's a saint compared to Snape.

Harry Potter is not just a book. It is a story most of us can relate to. It mirrors some of the things we go through and a place to escape to when "real life" becomes chaotic . I guess the child in me hasn't grown up yet but I'm glad I met a friend called Harry.

I swear, if Hogwarts was real, I'd be one of those trying hard to get in and enroll. But of course, I'm sure I wouldn't have to try hard really because I'd be receiving an invitation to study there...because I'm a "witch" (the good, kick-ass, kind-hearted type) at heart. And we'll definitely see each other within those Hogwarts walls and be bestfriends again. =)
Love you, Faye! Miss hanging out with you and Martha and the rest of the Chuas. Youfamily is like a second family to me (one of my many special second families). Dang, I'm eternally an adopted kid sa dami ng umampon sa 'kin hehehe

Of course we'll be best friends no matter what, where, when or who we'd become! I love you, too! Thanks for the comment. -Faye :)
