Normal, Non- Airborne Muggle Transportation the Way to University for Emma Watson

Actress Emma Watson has updated her website to confirm that she has arrived safely at Brown University where she will be attending school this year here in the US. She writes that she "arrived on Tuesday, and is having "the most amazing time." Emma continues "I'm still so excited to be here; I've already met so many incredible people. I'm over my jet lag and now I just want classes to start! Hope you are all well and happy and if you've just started college or university that it is everything you hoped it would be." 

Tabloids and paparazzi have been relentlessness in their pursuit of Emma arriving at school, with scores of reports flying all over the internet (which will not reappear on TLC). One such ludicrous rumor had Emma arriving at school in airborne manner, which the Hermione Granger actress dispelled by stating "Oh and contrary to the reports you may have read, I didn't arrive by helicopter. I've only been in one once when I was little and I was terrified. Now back to my studies! Speak soon."

Yeah, I hope she gets to have a normal few years, for once in her life, at least. I’m really happy that she decided to go to college and further her education. (Smart girl, Emma.)

The people who go to college the people who are smart enough to know that they have a lot more to learn, as all of us do.

Oh, it’s petty exciting to think the woman portraying the best student in Harry Potter’s year is going to school in the same country as me. It’s kind of inspiring, actually, since I always think of Hermione when I need to really buckle-down and get my school-work done.

I am glad that she is going to school. She is insanely rich, but also smart as hell, so she is bettering herself and getting a degree. If she chooses to not go farther as an actress, but have a different kind of job, that degree will come in handy.

"You can't have met many decent wizards," said Harry, trying to cheer him up.[br]Dobby shook his head. Then, without warning, he leapt up and started banging his head furiously on the window, shouting, [i]"Bad[/i] Dobby! [i]Bad[/i] Dobby!"
