A thing about Hogwarts Houses in general: they can be thought of as indications of a person’s motivation, or of their loyalties.
Gryffindors are driven by their morals and are loyal to the world, or at least to their idea of what the world should be. Gryffindors will always stick up for what they believe in, and they will help anyone in need (hence, “daring, nerve, and chivalry) unless it’s a person they feel is wrong or against them. At that point, you become the enemy.
Hufflepuffs are driven by a sense of fairness, which is not quite the same as morality. Hufflepuffs are the type to believe that everyone should have an equal chance, and they are better at seeing the shades of grey between a Gryffindor’s absolute right and wrong. They are loyal to their friends, or to the group they consider themselves a part of.
Ravenclaws are driven by enlightenment. This is very different from book smarts. It’s not terribly unusual for Ravenclaws to not excel in academics, because it’s not about the grade for them; it’s about the knowledge they gain, and whether they consider that knowledge interesting enough to bother with. They are loyal to their passions, which could be anything from books to art to fantastic creatures that may or may not be real.
Slytherins are driven by recognition. That could mean fame or power, or it could just be the validation of the people around them. They are loyal to themselves. This, by extension, means they are fiercely loyal to those closest to them, the ones they consider their own, because harm to their own is essentially the same as harm to themselves.
This makes a lot of sense.
A moment of silent for all those in retail this holiday season.

I have begun Full-Shave November.
This is fucking awful. HOW DO YOU DO THIS????
I was in the shower shaving for like… 45 minutes, and I STILL had to forgo shaving one of my legs because I was concerned I was running late for lunch (it turns out I wasn’t, but whatever).
I also ruined my razor, because I didn’t think to trim any of my hair first, but that’s okay.
Also look at all that fucking hair. There’s so much of it. I had no idea I had that much hair on me.
Tomorrow I will shave my left leg and run clean-up on basically everywhere else (it’s pretty patchy).
Aren’t you supposed to grow a mustache? what the fuck is full shave november.
The opposite of No Shave November. Lots of women get flak for participating in No Shave November and letting their body hair grow out (I can’t find the post with a bunch of screencapped tweets about it, but this is the next best thing), but the vast majority of guys (myself included) have absolutely no idea what a pain feeling like you have to shave your body hair is like. So, for the entirety of the month, I will be shaving my legs, chest, and armpits on a regular basis (as well as my usual regimen of shaving my face).
This idea. I like it. Another.
this is my favorite video of the year so far
