Can’t Sleep, so look at this HP survey I’m taking.

1. If you went to Hogwarts which house would you be sorted in? 

I usually get Hufflepuff. On Pottermore I’ve had 5 accounts, and in order they’re Gryffindor/Hufflepuff/Hufflepuff/Hufflepuff/Slytherin.

2. What would be your patronus?

A sloth.

3. Have you ever been to the HP midnight release?

Only for the Deathly Hallows movies.

4. What did you think of the Deathly Hallows?

Definitely the best of the movies, not my favorite book though.

5. How many times have you reread the books?

I reread them every July.

6. Who’s death was the saddest?

Dobby

7. If you went to Hogwarts would you rather have an owl, a cat, or a rat?

Can I not have one? I can barely take care of my turtle.

8. What do you think of the movie Half-Blood Prince?

It’s my least favorite book, so that kind of effects how I feel about the movie.

9. What do you think of the Deathly Hallows being split in two?

Best decision the filmmakers could have made.

10. Have you read the Tales of Beedle and Bard?

Bits and pieces.

11. When did you first become a Potter fan?

My mom brought me home the first two books one day. I think it was around 1999/2000

Why Finnish babies sleep in cardboard boxes
For 75 years, Finland’s expectant mothers have been given a box by the state. It’s like a starter kit of clothes, sheets and toys that can even be used as a bed. And some say it helped Finland achieve one of the world’s lowest infant mortality rates.
It’s a tradition that dates back to the 1930s and it’s designed to give all children in Finland, no matter what background they’re from, an equal start in life.
The maternity package - a gift from the government - is available to all expectant mothers.
It contains bodysuits, a sleeping bag, outdoor gear, bathing products for the baby, as well as nappies, bedding and a small mattress.
With the mattress in the bottom, the box becomes a baby’s first bed. Many children, from all social backgrounds, have their first naps within the safety of the box’s four cardboard walls.
Mothers have a choice between taking the box, or a cash grant, currently set at 140 euros, but 95% opt for the box as it’s worth much more.
The tradition dates back to 1938. To begin with, the scheme was only available to families on low incomes, but that changed in 1949.

I would rather my tax money pay for this than drone missiles.
