you kids these days with your rapidly growing concern for the state of the world and your knowledge of important issues at increasingly younger ages despite having been told your opinions don’t matter by the adults who put you in these situations
"i feel so pretty today"
* goes out walks around the street and 3 seconds later *
"well that lasted more than i expected"
For so long I felt ashamed of my ambition. I always strived to be at the top of my class. I was super competitive. It was something that people tended to frown upon. It was unseemly. It was selfish. Slytherin changed that for me. Ambition is something special. When paired with kindness and compassion it can do the greatest good. I want to do good. I want to drive the big changes our society needs. Ambition is the midwife of change. Big changes come with big dreams. Slytherin embraces that.
