More Gilmore Girls sorted into Hogwarts Houses

Richard Gilmore – Ravenclaw – Richard Gilmore was an easy one to sort. He and Rory are so alike, she takes after his thirst for knowledge so much. Rory goes to him for advice and he is very wise even when helping Lorelei. Rory is joined to him by their love of literature. He’s also very interested in the world around him, he reads various newspapers to keep him up to date with whats going on in the world.

Luke Danes – Hufflepuff – Luke was stuck between Hufflepuff and Gryffindor but ultimately I came to the conclusion that if everyone left him alone to work at the diner without any crazy schemes or problems he would still be happy. He loves Lorelei to pieces and deals with her and her stubbornness. He is super loyal to Lorelei and Rory and also to any one of his friends and although he would hate to admit it also to Stars Hollow. He is also very dependable, he looked after Jess for his sister even though he had no clue how to bring him up or change his path for the better but he did it and he worked hard at it because he made a promise to his sister. He also tends to make peace especially between Liz and TJ. He’s extremely hard working, he keeps his dads hardware store going even though he changed it into a diner, he works hard on the diner and even when he is made to fix things around the Dragonfly Inn he works hard. He also worked hard on the house for himself and Lorelei to accommodate him and make sure Lorelei didn’t have to move house. He would do anything to make the people he loves happy. He also makes sure that Lorelei and Rory are fed and happy, even turning on Dean when he thinks he’s broken her heart, and also safe by fixing various things in their house he thinks are dangerous.

Kirk Gleason – Hufflepuff – The decision to put Kirk in Hufflepuff was a hard one. I debated between Slytherin and Hufflepuff. He has ambition and is very diverse in skills. He has traits that belong to both Slytherin and Hufflepuff. Kirk is very loyal, to Luke, to Taylor, to Lulu, to the town of Stars Hollow. And he is willing to take on whatever role is needed by his friends, the good people of Stars Hollow.

Gilmore girls sorted into Hogwarts Houses

Rory Gilmore – Ravenclaw – I think Rory is a Ravenclaw because she values her books above friendship at Chilton. She is a book-worm at heart. She views intellect in high regard, she chose Jess over Dean because he was intellectually challenging and could match her in a conversation and have a different view. Even Logan is intelligent and that’s what first attracts her to him.

Lorelei Gilmore – Gryffindor – Lorelei is a Gryffindor because she is fierce and brave even in the face of hopelessness. She looked after Rory on her own as a single parent which must have been terrifying  at her age and then managed to get a job. She raised Rory alone aged 16 in a different town away from her family and she managed it and she raised Rory well. She was brave even though so many other people would not be in her situation. She also braved going back to her parents to get money for Rory to go to Chilton even though she would rather do anything but that. She’s also strong-willed and stubborn which I feel are attributes most Gryffindors have, and mix that with bravery and you have Lorelei Gilmore.

Emily Gilmore – Slytherin – This is not because I think she’s evil first of all. I think she has more ambition than everyone thinks she does. She married Richard and she had so much ambition for what Lorelei could have become in her eyes. People may see her as a house wife but she is so much more than that, she may not have a degree or be the president but she did have the resources to help other people and she did. She helped Richard and supported him in all his future and when he started a new business she helped the best way she knew how and she threw a party to help.

My November Bucket list

Have a calming journey to my training

Successfully spend two nights on my own without my cat who calms my panic attacks

Continuing with the Gym and sticking with it

Go out with the girls but try and spend less money

Continue to clear out the house ready to move

Bake or cook something and share with friends and family

Say one nice thing every day to make someone else’s day

Budget money better to save for mortgage

Meditate when things get hard

I have PTSD

I came to this realisation the other week.

My mums boyfriend died at my house 20th February 2015. He died about 5 in the morning, I remember that night as if it were yesterday.  I was woken up to a loud noise that I can only describe as a horrible cough possibly a constant clearing of their throat. It was a horrible noise and it was very loud. I thought it was one of our house mates as he was prone to coughing fits a lot. I closed my door to try and get back to sleep. (This is one of my biggest regrets). I didn’t know my mums boyfriend was at the house that night as he had come after I went to bed. Eventually I left my room as I couldn’t get back to sleep and suddenly one of our housemates had run upstairs and they had woken the other housemate. That day was very traumatic for me, we had an ambulance round and the police round and it was nonstop until 11 that day when he was pronounced dead and the police had stopped questioning us. It was the most traumatic and stressful day I can remember. I thought, well I still think what I heard that day when he was dying that he said No and it haunts me every time I hear an odd noise or get flashback.

If I hear a noise while I am trying to sleep or trying to get to sleep I get flashbacks to that night, I can’t close my bedroom door if I hear a noise outside or in the house somewhere. I physically can not close my door on a noise, I get flashbacks to that night and can’t sleep because every time I close my eyes I am transported instantly to that night. Sometimes if I see someone who looks even a bit like him I have a internal panic attack and have to try and remind myself that it’s not him and that I am ok and that that day is not happening now. Sometimes I hear a noise like the noise he made that night, out in public or on a Youtube video when I least expect it and I feel powerless as I am forced to relive this event again and again. Just talking about this right now has caused me to have flashbacks and I’ve had to ground myself several times. As a result of the impact this post is having on myself writing this blog post, this will be the last time I post about it, I have previously written about this before last year so please feel free to read that blog post which goes into a lot more detail about the events of that day.  The link to that post is below.

Death of a loved one

 

You must be wondering why I would want to write another post like this if it’s affecting me so badly. I want to boost awareness for PTSD and for anyone who has experienced what I experienced. Mental Health Awareness is important and you are not alone with your mental health what ever you have someone else has probably had it or is going through and can help or might need your help and experience. I don’t want there to be a stigma which is why I am always honest and open about my Mental Health even when it’s hard.

My time at a con on Sunday

So I went to my third con on Sunday and I went with my friend, it was her first ever con.

I cosplayed as Dean Winchester for the con and we had lots of fun. She didn’t feel well so she didn’t cosplay but she was going to go as Clara Oswald. At the con there were loads of other like minded people who also love their own fandoms. There were Harley Quinns, Deadpools, Jack Skellington, the 11th doctor, The Ghostbusters, characters from Star Wars, Characters from the Labyrinth, and so many other characters from many different Fandoms.

Everyone is accepting of each other and it’s such a great community. I’m so happy to be a part of it especially in our small town.
