"It's sort of stupid, really. I also hate how a lot of teachers not only notice these silly rivalries, but encourage them, as well. I mean is it such a bad thing to have friends from other Houses? They make it hard for us to see each other sometimes, so the Houses are sort of secluded amongst themselves. When all your friends are only in your House and you rarely meet people in other Houses outside of classes, then you feel like you don't need them. And then the rivalry just keeps going."
