So, I thought I would start off the year with an existential crisis…


Ok, so I’ve decided to compile a list of pros and cons of going to Hogwarts




Magic is obviously the main reason everyone wants to go to Hogwarts


Umm…that’s it?

Like, why else do people want to go to Hogwarts?

The teachers?


The Quidditch?


And so now, we move into the cons.


Magic is HARD


Like, it takes them ages to learn how to make a feather float!

Hogwarts is dangerous


They actually have to do work

In SO many books/tv shows/movies/etc. they never seem to have to do any work…but at Hogwarts?


Like, seriously. The movies seriously under-represent how much work they have to do.


And they have to write with QUILLS! And INK! And they have to write massive-long essays BY HAND!

Like, I can barely type an essay on my computer, which brings my next point…

There is no internet/computers/technology of any kind

Snape text

Like, guys, this means no twitter, no youtube…and no Google!!

So, they have to write these massive long essays, by hand, with quills, and they have to do all the research without Google!


Like, how do they even? I suppose it wasn’t so bad back in Harry Potter’s day, because it was the 90s and computers/the internet weren’t quite such a big thing, but these days?

In conclusion

So, I guess as much as I would LOVE to have magic, going to Hogwarts doesn’t seem as great as everyone says.

What about you guys?

Do you want to go to Hogwarts? Even though the lack of internet/modern technology in general would make it 10x harder than muggle school? Let me know.
