One Week After the New Beginning

Thursday, August 15, 2019

I used to have my own blog many years ago but I have stopped blogging then. I am not sure why I started blogging in the first place. Maybe it's the fad, maybe it's the fame that comes with it or something else. I didn't know. After I have started my relationship with Bear many years ago, I started writing again in his blog. I didn't continue to use my old blog. Well, my domain has been hijacked and my original blog backup was lost. So I figured I just write whatever that comes to my mind in Bear's blog.

After what we have been through last week, I know what I wanted to do with this blog now. As the result of a personality test Bear asked me to do, it seems like I have a closed up personality, like a man imprisoned in a castle, with his heart is locked away in a dungeon basement below, and occasionally I stand by a window high up in a tower, waving my hands to the people down below.

I am not good at talking at gatherings, I don't really like parties and I don't mingle much with strangers. Once, I walked out in a language-interest gathering group because of the anxiety I have with strangers. Though it can be difficult for people to know me in person; by writing my entries here, I hope people would be able to know me better by reading my thoughts. Literally.

Oh yeah, I am INFJ-T and according to a website which does research on personalities, people having this trait make up less than one percent of the world population. Thinking on the good side, I can consider myself to be a Legendary rare kind of person. The website also says that, there is no right or wrong about each personality attribute, but my introversion and my turbulence seem to be on the high side. 

Since I am going to write more often these days, Bear suggested that we get a new name for this blog. Originally it was going to be, "The Unexpected Miracles of a Slytherin and a Hufflepuff", but it's too long to fit into the template, so I just cut it short and omitted one word.

Bear and I are fans of Harry Potter world, not core fans but good enough to know about casting spells and stuffs. We enjoy the Harry Potter universe and it will be nice, that we can take a train to Hogswarts school, in real life. We sat through the Sorting Hat (online obviously) and Bear is the Slytherin and I am the Hufflepuff. If you are a Harry Potter fan, you know well the student characteristics of these Hogwarts houses.

According to JK Rowling, Hufflepuffs value hard work, patience, loyalty, and fair play while Slytherins are proud, ambitious and cunning.

And he's being a Slytherin and I am being a Hufflepuff, still able to become best friends and continue growing up together, isn't that a miracle to be cherished? And yes, we been through different version of Sorting Hat, and we still both get the same results.

Lumos! Let there be light! I like this one. I know Bear says this spell is kinda useless, but I like it anyhow. LOL.

I would call it a utility spell. Unglamorous but essential.
