if I should split my soul into 7 pieces.

Thursday, July 21, 2011

So forgive me if I'm still in the whole Harry Potter zone until now, but I can't help it if I'm still completely hungover from the watching the final movie.
Anyway, earlier today, I had this interesting conversation with my bookish co-worker about Horcruxes - what would we do if we had the opportunity to split our soul into 7 pieces. I thought this was a fascinating idea so I decided I should make a post out of it.

  • This specific copy of Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte - You all know Jane Eyre is one of my favorite books of all time, and you also know I have quite a lot of different copies of it. This one specifically is special. I found it when we just came from the Philippines about 6 years ago, when I was so homesick. We were staying at my great Aunt's house at that time. I was helping out with organizing her garage, and in one of the boxes, was this copy. I didn't read it until later on, but it meant a lot because it was nice to find a 'hidden treasure' that cured my homesickness at that time, even for a little bit!
  • This pendant - Tim gave this to me last year for my birthday. I wear it almost every single day! My outfit would seriously sometimes feel incomplete without it. It's so simple and tasteful, yet elegant, meaningful, and timeless. Love it so much!
  • Rent "bible" by Jonathan Larson - I love music, and I absolutely love Broadway. This is my favorite musical, ever. And this book, is genius. Must read and buy for any rent heads out there!
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - mini book 'collector's' item - given to me by my Aunt. I really just like this one! It's easy to hide, and nobody will think that I would consider putting my soul into such a tiny little thing. It's also my favorite book from the series so I'd have to pick that specific one.
  • The Little Mermaid music box - It's just gorgeous to me, and the Little Mermaid was my favorite as a kid (imagine me at my 6th birthday party, singing Look at this stuff... isn't it neat...) And I just adore music boxes in general. I think they're simply lovely and sentimental.
  • My 'literature/words/typewriter' art - Another amazing handmade gift from Tim for Christmas. It sums up my love for literature! He drew a typewriter, and on the paper coming out from it is a copy of my favorite poem of all-time. On the sides are some of my favorite quotes and lines from books. The most thoughtful gift I've ever gotten.
And the 7th and the final horcrux, I would have to say.... Me!
Is this answer acceptable? Well, I'd like to think so. I'd want to have a 2nd life in my pocket, you know... just in case. Ha. What about you? I really want to know what your horcruxes would be! Leave a comment or do a post-response :D

EDIT: Check this Horcrux post by my cousin, Justine. clickclickclick


  1. This is an awesome post! What a great idea. Love your list, but especially the Little Mermaid music box! So adorable.

  2. Such a great idea and wonderful choices!

  3. Fantastic post! I like how you chose objects that were special to you.

    I am planning to go see the movie again this weekend (this time in 3D).

  4. Great choices! That typewriter piece is absolutely wonderful. You and your boyfriend seem so sweet with each other!

  5. What an interesting Harry Potter post! You totally reminded me that I have that rent book somewhere in my room and that I should probably listen to La Vie Boheme while I'm getting ready. Great post!

  6. I love this post!
    I am glad that the copy of Jane Eyre cured your homesickness. That pendant is so pretty. And so is the Little Mermaid music box. All your choices are great!

  7. Such an awesome idea for a post! I might need to do this...

    Also, lol lola ditse :) i wonder if it was her copy ;)

  8. I love this idea and I love seeing your choices. That typewriter art is gorgeous! Your man has good taste. I'm also a huge RENT fan. I think most of my horcruxes would ned of being similar things, a favorite book, a favorite gift from someone, souvenir or piece of jewelry that means a lot. I'd have to give it a lot of thought, but I can see it in my head.

  9. Belle - Thanks! You should one too on your blog!

    Pepca - Thank you!

    Christina T - I am planning to see it again next week too. Can't stand 3d though, makes me dizzy unfortunately.

    May - Aw thank you!!

    Letter4no1 - La Vie Boheme is awesome! I also listen to Out Tonight everytime I go out with the girls or something haha

    misha - Thank you :) You should do a post like this too.

    A.Justine - Do it too!! :D

    Melissa - Haha I am sure Tim will like reading your comment :) And can't wait to read your post on your horcruxes (hint hint.. haha)

  10. I had forgotten about your fantastic typewriter art.

    SUPER SUPER cool list. And so very very creative.

    You should make this a meme/feature where you display/feature different bloggers.

  11. All great things! The music box reminded me of a music box when I had as a little girl.

  12. Jenny - Aw! Don't you just love music boxes? You should do a post like this too ;)

  13. Girl, this is such a genius post! I don't know if I would ever know what to split my soul into, but I would guess my turquoise cross would be one, my Oma's clock would be another...my Bengal would probably be a third haha ;)

  14. Melissa - Do your own post too!! :)

  15. LOL! How did you ever come up with such an idea?! It's never occurred to me to wonder what what items I would put pieces of my soul into if ever given the chance. Hmm, I'm having a hard time thinking of 6 different objects that mean so much to me. I love all your choices though!

  16. Aylee - I challenge you to do this!! I think it'd be cool especially for your blog, since it's HP and all ;)

  17. What an cool idea! Don't have any idea what my horcruxes would be but I love your Jane Eyre book. One of mine might have to be my fancy edition of LoTR.

  18. Lesa - oohh yes! I don't have a fancy edition of LOTR but I have one of Narnia and Alice in Wonderland! :) the one from b&n.

  19. cute idea for a post! I like that The Little Mermaid music box :)
