Ten Random Things I Learned from Harry Potter

I am a HUGE fan of the Harry Potter books by JK Rowling, to the point that I even took a college literature course on the topic my freshmen year. It has occurred to me that their are alot of random life lessons in the books, some of which I felt like sharing with the general population. So in no particular order

  1. Chocolate cures everything
  2. When a prophesy is made about you, instead of trying everything you can to prevent it from happening, let things play out and interfere only when the proper time comes.
  3. Don't bully other people, they might take it out on your son
  4. Be nice to the frumpy smart girl,she might become a hottie
  5. Even if you start out as a failure, you can end up a bad-ass if you work hard enough
  6. Don't apply for a teaching position that nobody has kept for more than a year
  7. Be careful who you trust
  8. Mothers are scary
  9. Nothing is as it first appears 
  10. Happiness can be found, Even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.
