I... am a Hufflepuff.
I'm sure everyone is familiar with the Harry Potter school Hogwarts, and its four Houses: Gryffendor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin. Well today, I took the test online, and found out that I belong to the Hufflepuff category.
This is very saddening to me, as I always felt the Gryffindor spirit in me when I read the Harry Potter books - always felt the Gryffindor competitive spirit, always cheered on the Gryffindor heroes! Frankly, I'm in shock.
I wanted to be a hero, like Harry, Hermione and Ron - only to discover that my personality is more suited to the role of onlooker (key Hufflepuff characters include Professor Sprout, Cedric Diggory and Justin Finch-Fletchley - still, at least the Hufflepuffs have Nymphadora Tonks, who I love!).
As my mother put it when I broke the news, "Honey, maybe you're just not a world-saver!". Thanks, Mum.
Still, she did make one helpful comment, which was that if I was actually going under the Sorting Hat, I could always ask to be put in Gryffindor, just like Harry did!
If you're a bit of a Harry Potter nerd like me, I recommend taking the Sorting Hat Quiz and finding out which House you belong to. It takes about five minutes and it's really easy!
Meanwhile, I'm going to try to tackle my Hufflepuffle identity as best as I can!
