Weekly Digest vol. 2
Last weekend I was in the wizarding world and for those of you that don’t know, electronics don’t work at Hogwarts so I obviously was unable to post anything. That said, this weekend I’ve got two weeks worth of things with which I’m currently fascinated and obsessed (a lot of which is Harry Potter, let’s be real). So put on some HP soundtracks, grab a chocolate frog, and get cracking on weird articles, videos, and blogs with me!
