REASONS I AM IN FACT HERMIONE GRANGER

aka I HAVE BECOME THE WOMAN I SET OUT TO BE IN MY CHILDHOOD. In honor of The Battle of Hogwarts ✨🏰
  1. I'm definitely a know-it-all
    Hermione has a big brain and she owns it. I'm so glad I had a role model who trained me to be unafraid to speak out with confidence (though I still sometimes cringe at both of our show-offy moments).
  2. I have great friends
    While Hermione has the Golden Trio and I have @squad, we both have a lifelong set of friends who have rocked our souls. (I don't think I'm planning on marrying any squadlings, but hey, who knows...)
  3. I am passionate about social justice
    ...sometimes to the point of confusing/annoying my friends. I also have to constantly double-check myself to make sure that my savior complex isn't getting in the way of making effective change.
  4. I clean up surprisingly well
    😏
  5. I am unafraid of confrontation
    No, I haven't actually punched anyone in the face, but I will come find you if your music is too loud during quiet hours. I will call you out if you say something insensitive in class. I will invest time and energy in the fights that I deem worth my time. (Sometimes, this gets out of control. As in I invent arguments when I'm bored and get mad at the imaginary offenders who have actually done nothing wrong.)
  6. I love books
    ...my favorite date possibly ever was to an independent bookstore in my state's capital. I will buy pretty copies of classics I already own. I will end you if you return a book with pages bent. In other words, I'm a total book dork.
  7. But really, though:
  8. I am a witch.
  9. I go to Hogwarts.
  10. I taught Harry Potter most of what he knows.
  11. I single-handedly made smart girls the most BA girls in children's lit.
    BECAUSE HERMIONE GRANGER IS SUCH A FRIGGIN HERO AND I LOVE IT
