You can tell a lot about a person by the type of music they listen to. Put your music on shuffle and write down the first 10 songs that come up. Then tag 10 people! Don’t skip any songs!
Albus Severus Potter and the curse of the awful name.

True Story: As I finished reading the book I walked downstairs to complain to my mom about the awful epilogue and the horrible names. While naming kids after dead people is kind of a no-no in this culture (not a taboo, just not done because it implies wishing the same fate on your kid) I was SUPER outraged over the name Hugo. I hated that name and I still do and hell if I can think of a rational reason as to why, but when I told my mom about it she too agreed it was a relatively bad name. Just then she received a text message from our neighbour. They just had a baby whom they named… Hugo.
