I like the idea of going to Hogwarts just like I liked the idea of college and graduate school. But realistically, all it did was stress me out and make me super mental. I'm pretty sure Hogwarts would make me a crying, anxious mess.

I'd love a little magic shop too, OP! I guess it's like cafe/coffee shop fantasies. The idea sounds totally relaxing and romantic. But on the other hand, it's a customer service job. Though somehow it seems like customer service would be less important if your shop sold really valuable magical stuff in the old-fashioned wizarding world. Like, you could tell people to fuck off and leave your shop. idk

Oh yeah also I'm pretty sure that photo is from the studio tour in England, right? Totally went there... twice. That alley was the coolest part, even cooler than the Hogwarts model.

I think part of why I like the idea of Going To Hogwarts is that, in the fantasy, all the actual hardships of school are replaced with an idealised sense of accomplishment and learning-related excitement. Sure, I'm procrastinating on no less than three papers, right now, but in Hogwarts, I'd be super awesome at magic and just so excited about writing essays and magic and and and it's... totally unrealistic.

And same, I think even costumer service would be slightly more pleasant. On the other hand, the wizarding world has some serious issues... For instance, I'd love to tell Lucius Malfoy to take his glorious hair and shitty personality out of my shop (and take that slimey kid of yours with you, you bastard), but then he'd probably just pay off someone (like Rita Skeeter) to publish a really nasty article about me and all would be ruined. I just got way too invested, didn't I.
