Random News: Problems for Hogwarts Students

Hello Lovely Readers,

There were some wonderful articles on Buzzfeed about the problems the students in Hogwarts would face and I thought I would share these articles with you! The first is 31 Problems Every Hogwarts Student Will Understand. This list is something students from every house in Hogwarts can appreciate. There are a lot of practical problems that the article points out, and the books never really address. Mostly though it has a great bunch of Hogwarts themed gifs that you will love.

Then we get into the problems students from each house face. The first is 15 Earth-Shattering Hufflepuff Problems. I enjoyed this list, even though this is the only house I have never been sorted into! I do know some very awesome Hufflepuffs, and I think they would appreciate this list. It isn’t always easy to be nice and loyal!
Second we have, 21 Personal Struggles Only Ravenclaws Will Understand. I really enjoyed this list because it pointed out several things I hadn’t thought about. The first being how awful would it be not to be able to figure out the riddle to get into the common room (especially if you were tired). Also I never realized that besides blue, the other color for Ravenclaw is sometimes silver and others bronze! And I thought Gryffindors had trouble with colors!
Third up we have the house that gets a bad rap, 17 Incredibly Serious Slytherin Problems. This is France’s house, and the one I am second most often sorted into, so I have a soft sport for all the Slytherins I know! This list does point out some legitimate problems Slytherins face. However, I think this list is the least interesting, and doesn’t really address the “problems” Slytherins face.
Lastly we have my house, 18 Seriously Annoying Gryffindor Problems. Like the previous list, I thought this one could have been better, instead it mostly focuses on the drawbacks of having the famous trio in the house. It does just briefly touch on what the other houses think, but more of this would have been better.
So what about you guys, what problems do you think students at Hogwarts would face? Which house are you guys, and do you feel strongly about it?

Until next time,



About Lynne

I am currently a PhD student of Forensic Psychology, which may explain the off mix of extremely morbid books sitting next to children’s books. Hailing from the Midwest in the United States of America, I have now lived in England for over 2 years (which will explain any strange grammar usage). From a very young age, my parents cultivated a love of reading, and never restricted what I read. When I reached middle school I began reading Shakespeare (a lifelong love affair), but had also discovered the wonders of young adult fiction. While the world may now expect me to read books more reflective of my age, I have fought this and am a strong supporter of the YA novel! Despite having very little free time, I still sets aside time for a reading every evening, and listens to books on my way to University. I dream of one day being a published novelist and published scientist!
