Let’s face it, everyone has questions that they are embarrassed to ask. Or you believe that you are alone in dealing with a situation. This is not true. Fickle Firsties is are the questions that you want to ask but aren’t sure how to.
Some of the other kids are being mean because I’m muggle born. I don’t feel like I belong and don’t know what to do. At my old school it was just a scolding and the bullying got worse. Is there some kind of self defense class or something?
Please talk with someone about this. Someone you trust, a prefect or your head of house. You shouldn’t have to stand for discrimination just because of what parent you were born to, it’s completely ridiculous. I say this not only to you, but to every student, new or old.
You should not have to endure bullying.
There is nothing wrong with being muggle-born or half-blood.
Neither is it wrong to be pure-blood. Our worth is not based on the blood that flows through our veins, or any other trait we might have. It is however based, partly, on our actions in life. That tells me a lot about bullies.
Wake up people, we live in the 21st century,

There’s this older boy I met and I have a huge crush on him! Problem is, he thinks I’m just some cute little kid. How do I get him to go on a date with me?

Dear Lovelorn Lady,
Just ask him out.
It won’t hurt you any more than overthinking does and it’s better than guessing at what it might’ve been, being with him. I can’t promise you that he’ll feel the same way, but perhaps it will at least open him up to the idea knowing you like him. If not, then you can finally start healing, because you know where he stands.
So go out there and love,
A Former Firstie
P.S, I’d recommend confessing to him without his friends around.
