In Defense Of Hufflepuffs Everywhere

I’ll admit it: in middle school, I talked shit about Hufflepuffs just like everyone else. It was the cool thing to do. I was a Ravenclaw – intelligent, clever, and not as…non-descript as I imagined Hufflepuffs were. Continue reading “In Defense Of Hufflepuffs Everywhere”
