[ mood | busy ]

Aaaack, N.E.W.T.s!!! I'm sorry I haven't updated, I've just been so busy. I don't know what the sorting hat was thinking to have put me in Ravenclaw...

Quidditch Team [07 Dec 2003|09:02pm]
[ mood | excited ]

It took a lot of deliberation, but I've finally figured out this year's Quidditch lineup. All the team members from last year will resume their previous positions on the field. As for the new players...

Michael Corner - Chaser
Lisa Turpin - Chaser
Terry Boot - Beater

Congratulations, you three. I'm looking forward to a good, strong season. We have a chance for the Quidditch Cup, we just have to work hard. Practices will begin on Monday and will be three times a week. Remember, the first Quidditch game of the season is coming up - Gryffindor vs. Slytherin. As long as Gryffindor wins, we have a better chance at the Cup. Good luck to you all.

Return to Hogwarts [01 Dec 2003|09:36pm]
[ mood | content ]

It wasn't until I entered the Great Hall and looked at the bewitched ceiling and candles that I remembered just how much I love this place. The changing stairs, the friendly portraits, the food, the smell, and the people... I'm finally home.

Hogwarts Letter [30 Nov 2003|04:59pm]
[ mood | happy ]

When I returned to my room at the Leaky Cauldron tonight, I found a large barn owl with a rather important-looking letter in its beak. I took the letter from him, and was surprised to find the Hogwarts seal on the back. It was a bit odd, seeing as I've already received my supply list almost a week ago, and Dumbledore never makes mistakes. After I read the letter and saw the shiny new badge, I nearly did a jig.

I'm Head Girl.

I had a feeling I would be this year, but when my supply list came and there was no news of it, I just shrugged and let it go. Someone more qualified than me probably got the title. I always thought that they told you about these things when your supply list letters came - that's how I found out I was a prefect... but I guess they changed it this year. Someone probably thought it'd be humorous to disappoint someone when they didn't get their badge as they had hoped, only to shock them out of their robes a week later.

Diagon Alley [27 Nov 2003|01:43pm]
[ mood | amused ]

My aunt is letting me stay at the Leaky Cauldron for the remainder of summer holiday because she'll be out of town and unable to take me to King's Cross on Monday. I'm pretty excited; I always love exploring the little shops in Diagon Alley. Of course, I'll get to visit Weasley's Wizarding Wheezes again. Although I'm not a big practical joker myself, I do find many of the twins' sweets and gadgets highly amusing. I stopped by Diagon Alley shortly last week, picking up some powdered dragon scales. I just received my Hogwarts letter three days ago, so I'll need to go shopping again.

Counting the Days [26 Nov 2003|11:05pm]
[ mood | anxious ]

Four days until term starts at Hogwarts; four days until I see Harry my friends; four days until Quidditch. I haven't played all summer. My aunt has only let me on my broomstick once this entire time. Isn't it ironic how the new Ravenclaw captain this year hasn't practiced at all for months? Great. I hope I can be as good for the team as Roger was.

Tornados Victory [24 Nov 2003|05:18pm]
[ mood | contemplative ]

Fellow seventh years, N.E.W.T. year is almost upon us.

I received an owl from Roger Davies this morning. He's playing Keeper for the Wimbourne Wasps, and he seems to be doing well. I'm extremely happy for him. He says he misses me, and I miss him too. I can't wait until he visits.

I just heard that the Tornados beat the Chudley Canons last night 200 to 190. The Canons were winning by a longshot until the amazing Tornados Seeker Alexander Kettleburn, using the Wronski Feint, caught the golden snitch and saved the game. I bet Ron Weasley's not too happy about this, but I am!

Firebolt Flight [23 Nov 2003|10:47pm]
[ mood | grateful ]

I just got back from an incredible flight on my Firebolt. Finally got to think things over, sort things out. I guess lately I've just been secluding myself from all of my friends. So to those of you who are reading this, I'm sorry. I've just been having a hard time with my aunt this past week... she expects me to get top grades all the time. So what if I can't transfigure a labrador into a footrest without it barking madly everytime you try to put your feet on it? It isn't as if I'm not trying. Sometimes I feel like she thinks I have to be absolutely perfect in every which way. I'm not. I'm flawed, just like the rest of the world. But that's exactly it; my aunt is flawed too. I finally realized that tonight. Sure she has impossible expectations for me, but it's because she loves me and wants the best for me. She's trying to be the best "parent" she possibly can and I need to learn to appreciate it. I'm lucky enough to have someone who cares so much for me. I'm going to send her an owl first thing in the morning.
