I've Been Accepted to Hogwarts

I got my official Pottermore invite this morning and of course I click on it immediately and get Site is down for maintenance please try again later so I did and got in a few minutes before I had to leave for work. So during my lunch I got in again. For the next two hours I was in heaven. Right off the bat you get additional information about the Harry Potter World. Here are some of my tweets about my first reactions.

I have just entered Pottermore, & the story begins, started the 1st chapter. But I have to go do work, will explore more later. #pottermore

Loving Pottermore.. just learned some back story on Vernon and Petunia, how they met and Vernon meeting Lily and James #Pottermore

Hmm I'm going around collecting things and putting them in my trunk.. don't have a clue why I'm doing this :) #Pottermore

Just opened my account at Gringotts, I can now purchase my school supplies. Wow.. that start you off with 500 Galleons.. Loving #Pottermore

Buying my books now at Flourish and Blotts.. this is too AWESOME!!! #Pottermore

Just purchased my Cauldron from Potage's Cauldron Shop, went with Pewter, standard size 2, could have gotten Brass or Copper but cost more.#Pottermore

Hmm choices, choices.. Owl, cat or toad? #Pottermore

OMG.. so many cool things to buy at Diagon Alley, Not sure if we can earn more Galleons or does this need to last all 7 years. #pottermore

Going with an Owl, now which type. Brown, Barn, Tawny or Screech. Guess Potter is the only one allowed to get a Snowy one #Pottermore

Went with a Tawny Owl, I liked the look of him. About to get my Wand.. so excited!!! #Pottermore

Rowan with Phoenix feather core, Eleven inches, Quite flexible wand just selected me for it's new owner :) #Pottermore

wow.. Galleons goes fast.. already spent 60g on my school supplies. #Pottermore

So much new Harry Potter info.. mind exploding!!! Reading about Wand Lore and the different cores. Fascinating stuff. #Pottermore

#Pottermore is the coolest thing ever.. only been on it a few hours and up to Chapter 5 but have learned so much more about this world.

As you can see I was very excited about exploring Pottermore. There is so much to see and read that I'm sure when I go back from the beginning I'll pick up even more. I can see this being a time sucker so I'm trying to make it last as long as possible for the enjoyment. A few hours here, a few hours there.

Next up is getting sorted into a house. I'm thinking I'm Hufflepuff so it will be interesting to see which house I'm sorted into.. Stay Tuned.

Here's my Wand
