the house of ravenclaw values intelligence, creativity, learning, and wit. i like to believe that the sorting hat would put me into ravenclaw. i always enjoy learning new things, be it just researching random things on the internet or learning how to make a new craft. while a lot of people finished college and were done, i was looking forward to continuing school. i love being in an academic setting, surrounded by people learning. i enjoy being creative. since the introduction of pinterest in my life, i have taken on many of the projects and relished making our house prettier. one of my favorite characters of the series is luna because she is so naturally intelligent. while hermione was obviously smart, she studied to become that smart. luna just was smart. and she was funny.
here are the qualities from the other houses:
gryffindor - courage, bravery, loyalty, nerve, and chivalry. while i would love to be in the same house as harry, ron, and hermione, i know the sorting hat would not place me in gryffindor. while i am loyal, i am not courageous and have little nerve.
hufflepuff - hard work, tolerance, loyalty, and fair play. i was torn between ravenclaw and hufflepuff, but in the end chose ravenclaw. while i certainly value tolerance and loyalty, i have to be honest in saying that i don't value hard work. not to say that i don't work hard, but i prefer to think that i'm naturally intelligent and don't need to study hard to be smart.
slytherin - ambition, cunning, leadership, and resourcefulness. i am not cunning. i don't have a cunning bone in my body. and i don't really think of myself as a leader.
