[ mood | complacent ]

Being ill is not fun. I had some sort of stomach bug last week, and Pomfrey patched me up just fine, but I still detest the hospital wing. I don't know why, but somehow it creeps me out. I'm not sure if it's the utter sterility of the place or just the idea of clustering every sick person in the same room that bothers me the most.

Who wants to get me the assignments I missed and fill me in on anything interesting? That doesn't include the Potter/Malfoy debacle, of course. I managed to hear enough about that in the infirmary, and I think it's been blown way out of proportion.

Padma and Lisa, have we gotten any farther on the study get-together? Apparently the last time any organization was attempted, I heard that you two managed to get sidetracked onto something involving hair...

A new one just begun... [January 14, 2007 @ 11:07pm]
[ mood | calm ]

It's school again. I don't really know how I feel about it. 

It was very nice to see all of my family again, even if Gavin does still insist on stealing my wand at any given opportunity. It's more than a little bit irritating to have it turn up on my pillow with Merlin-knows-what kind of sticky, gooey substance on it. My mother wouldn't let me touch it until she had disinfected it, though. What larks.

NEWTs are coming up faster and faster, but I'm still not worried about them yet. I think I'm getting complacent. It's nice. I need to snap out of it.

I don't have anything to write about besides the things that everyone else is writing about. How very drab of me.

To save you all the trouble of reading another repetitive entry, here it is in short: The ball was fun, quidditch training makes me hurt all over, and homework makes me extremely productive cranky.

Speaking of which, partner projects are complete bollocks. I don't like having to worry about splitting the work fairly and all of that crap, much less try to coordinate schedules so that we can meet to discuss how we're going to handle this. I'm just going to end up doing the entire project anyway, just to make sure it meets my standards. At least Dementors are a fairly interesting kind of creature.

And that might have been boring, but I least I got to be the first to complain about it.

There's a ball coming up.

Mandy Brocklehurst and Lisa Turpin don't have dates?


[Private to Lisa]

Now let's see what happens.

I'm not even sure what to write in this thing right now. It's just a bit more fun than doing actual work. But only a bit.

I just can't believe how tired I've been recently. You better be proud of me, Michael, because I've been working my butt off for Quidditch. I think it's paying off though.

Has anyone actually been doing anything interesting recently? My focus on schoolwork has been waning and I think I might need to do something drastically stupid in order to get my head back in the game.

I love school to a degree that is truly stupid ,even though the atmosphere is horribly awkward. Luckily, that is perfectly appropriate Ravenclaw behavior, or else I would be ostracized and have no friends.

Even though it's my last year, I can't help but be kind of excited about everything. The fact that I don't know what to do with my life just makes it more fun, in a dangerous sort of way. Oooh, teetering on the edge of destruction. How very fantastic.Shut up, I am NOT a nerd.

Right now I've been focusing on classes and flying. I don't intend to perform horribly when Quidditch tryouts roll around.

My mum didn't want me looking at the Prophet this morning. I hadn't looked at this journal for a bit, so I didn't know why.

I think it's selfish to wish I had known him better. I do though. And I think even the people that really knew him will be selfish and wish that he could still be here. I'm not sure if it matters what I think though.

I hope everyone is feeling at least a little bit selfish. It shows that we're actually human.


Unlike Millicent Bulstrode, who is callous and heartless and generally disgusting.

I don't know why I left that comment on her journal. I didn't know him. I have no reason to defend him. It was pretty irrational.

I won't take it back though. She is soulless.

And I will probably be in for it when we go back to school.

This book is tingling in my hands. And it's not because I'm a nerd and have developed some special bond with it or anything, which could actually be true, but my mother has just had at it with so many different charms and potions that I think it might be able to float by itself at this point.

Basically, my little brother dropped it in the loo. Hi-lar-ious. I don't know where he got the notion that that was funny, but it certainly wasn't from me, and it definitely wasn't from Mum. I thought her head was about to explode when she found out, she had such a strop.

I am sort of glad she cleaned it though. I might have had to get a new one otherwise, and I do really like this one.


Michael invited me to join a bunch of "them" (and no, I don't know who "they" are, besides Cho and Anthony) at Fortescue's later. I had to ask mum if she could take care of Gavin, of course, and after I explained why it was incredibly obvious that she was excited that I would actually be leaving the house.

Me? I'm feeling a little worried about it. Social situations just make me so awkward.

Ugh. What a horrible day. I woke up at 4:30 for no reason at all, which wouldn’t be so bad except for the part where I couldn’t get back to sleep. I didn’t even have a nightmare or anything!! And I know my mum can tell too, because she kept giving me funny looks this morning…I know I’m never usually up early in the summer, but I should be allowed to change my habits without getting stared at, shouldn’t I?

I bet she’ll try to put me on that sleeping-potion again. Sometimes it is very annoying when your mum’s a healer. She just uses any possible excuse to pour some new concoction down my throat, and half the time I don’t think she even knows if it’s going to work! I am no one’s human guinea pig.

Of course, for the rest of the day I was saddled with my little brother, and, though he is adorable, I really should be getting to work on my summer assignments. I did need a bit of a break before I dove into schoolwork again, but at this rate I won’t even have written more than three pieces of parchment for that history assignment.

Oh, what summer larks I enjoy. I really cannot wait to get back to Hogwarts at this point. Is anyone else doing something more interesting? I would love to get out of the house, even if most of you are contemptible only for a little while.
