Merlin! That was FUN! Surfing, water, wet t-shirt contests, laughing, friends! We should do this more often! Water slides should be a part of everyday school activities!

March 21st, 2007

First I'm buried under mountains of assignments -okay I'll admit it's mostly because I put a lot of them off for so long- and then St. Patrick's Day rolls around and...Merlin, the colour green can burn your eyes out.

On the bright side I've finally gotten over the migraine I've had for the last several days. No more Irish coffee for me...ugh.

Did I miss much in my classes that I dutifully kept my head on the table for?

Is it just me or has there been an exceptionally large scorpion wandering the castle?

I think I'm losing my mind. Or finding it...whichever is more scary.

Ice cream tastes so much better in the winter. It doesn't melt as quickly so it stays nice and sweet. I abtained quite a bit from the kitchens a little bit ago.

And yes, I'm willing to share.

I think I still have a box of chocolate chip bisquits too. I'd have to check though.

Company is welcome.

Another one...

Did anyone see the prophet today? It's awful what happened to that poor Auror and his family.

Snow families...

Yesterday I built a snowman. Today I built a snow-woman. Anyone want to go outside with me to build a snow-justice to marry them and then a snow-baby? I'm terribly bored and it is rather amusing.

Lily Evans have the best family ever! Muggle technology is so interesting. And her mum makes the best hot cocoa on the coldest nights.

Apparently my holidays were great. How were all of yours?

Holidays are here...

I'm glad mum let me stay for the ball. She really wanted me to come home after those attacks, but I assured her the Aurors here were doing everything they could to keep us safe. And my dress was gorgeous. I think it was the best dress I've gotten yet. And last night was so fun. It was good seeing everyone laughing again through the twinkling of the decorations.

But it's just as great being home again too. Gwenog never ceases to amaze me with how much she's grown in my absence. She won't stop asking about James. I've yet to give her the bitter truth. Though I certainly like the way Lily thinks.

I've been in a cooking frenzy ever since I got home. Pie and cookies and everything imaginable. I'm covered in flour and quickly running out of sugar. So relaxing though.

I hope everyone else's holidays are going well so far. Faces will be lighting up soon.

Peppermint lips!

I've got candy canes! Who wants one?

Season of giving...

I don't understand why everyone thinks their assignments are disturbing. Sure it may not be someone you're used to, but that's the whole point. It's about unity and we all need it with everything going on outside the castle. I honestly think this is going to be the most interesting thing of the year. It gives me a chance to use my best asset, and no...not anything you boys would think about. I'm really good at reading people and this is the perfect opportunity to test it out.

I'm going to go for a walk. I've been working on a spell to make snow that has glitter in it. I thought it might be a fun spell to use in my dorm on Christmas, but I want to try it outside a few more times to get the rest of the kinks out before I use it indoors.

Cheer up everyone! It's the season of giving and warmth and you all need more holiday spirit!

And Lily, I have an interesting idea if you want to talk about it with me later.

Loving holidays...

I love Christmas! And Dumbledore is brilliant! Brilliant I say! A gift exchange is exactly what we all need to lift spirits. I wonder who everyone is going to get. I wonder you I'm going to get! I'm not worried who gets me. It's the giving, not the receiving that makes the difference. This is going to be so much fun!

But yes, I want to go walk around Hogsmeade and start Christmas shopping with everyone else. And while I'm at it...I'm going to get Lily something for her birthday. Time to bundle up and walk through crisp snow.

I love Winter! Love it!

First snowfall...

I can't wait for winter hols. Mum said they've already had the first heavy snowfall. It's always so pure and crystalline. Reminds me of the glitter that Alice led my addiction to. It sparkles in just the right light, like diamonds covering the ground. I've loved it since I was knee high.

I once told my father I'd find a way to make a necklace for my mother from the glittering snowfall. How naive I was. It's still a good dream to remember over a warm cup of cocoa.

I can't believe how fast this year has gone. It's nearly over. We should definitely make the most of it.

Cold nose, cold toes.

It's amazing how cold it has gotten so quickly. My nose is pink from the bitter frost and I can barely feel it. My toes aren't much better, but I doubt they're pink.

Is that why everyone around the castle seems so gloomy lately? Winter has that effect, but honestly! I'd love to see more smiles and less frowns. We should have a party or something to cheer people up. With hot chocolate and warm cakes and lovely amounts of sugar...

Who's with me?

Glitter and guitars...

Right so...I still have glitter on me from the ball. Either that or Alice has been dosing me when I pass her in the halls. Not that I mind. I love being sparkly. Great to have a look that matches my smile.

I probably haven't said much to anyone about the ball itself. It's really what brought my smile back entirely. The most fun I've had since summer. It was great seeing everyone so happy for once. All my old friends and all the Houses equally. And I had fun playing the guitar. Even if I wasn't very good at it. Perhaps I should get lessons and become a musician.

...yeah, no. That's a silly dream. Ha!

Candy anyone?

Just Me
Anyone want some candy corn? I got a whole box from my mum today. She even set cookies and popcorn balls. I think she doubts the upcoming feast.

I got my costume today too. I love it. Enough that I might wear it more than once before the end of the year. It's perfect! And the mask is to die for...though not literally please. Hee!

Not enough smiles, but hardly any frowns... Don't know what to make of that. I've been doing homework relentlessly. It's still scaring me. I think I need to get out of the Common Room and Library. It's been a while since I've taken a walk around the grounds, or watched a sunset, or even been with someone that could talk as well as listen. Plants don't usually talk back...though that depends on the plant.

Someone save me from myself...

Until then, backing to my Herbology essay. Did you know this plant bites? It's quite painful. So much for visual aides...

Oh, the stalkers...

Oh really?
There is something wrong with the fact that everyone is lusting over my boyfriend. It must be a spell so I think I'll...just let it be.

James, I need to talk to you whenever you can get away from your stalkers. It's important. Can we meet in our spot? Let me know.

Shrieks and screams...

I spend too much time thinking. That honestly can't be good for someone.

And I still don't get Herbology. Those Mandrake roots still remind me of evil little children. I heard Gwenog scream enough while we were growing up. In fact, I don't believe she's stopped. So I certainly don't want to spend the day listening while the second years work on that assignment. I don't see why our class has to be directly next door.

I have a headache. I think I'm going to lie down.

September 17th, 2006


James? I know I said we needed to talk, but I'm beginning to think now isn't the time. Are you okay?

Life just more and more confusing every day. I'm not quite sure how to take all of this in.

August 13th, 2006

James is finally coming back to stay here. For two weeks this time instead of a week. Though the first week is slave week. But I have a feeling being his slave won't be such a chore. More like a reward.

I feel awful that he broke his arm. I knew he shouldn't have put off coming back here to visit as long as he did, but he insisted on another week there. At least he's coming now so I can coddle him make sure he's alright for myself.

It's rather odd that when the Wizarding world quiets down from dramatic implosions and such, all these odd little quirks seem to be happening to everyone else. Has anyone else noticed this? So far I haven't noticed anything over here. Unless you count Gwenog actually being calm and not running around something strange, which I do, but I think she misses James more than I do. I kind of intentionally forgot to tell her he was arriving later. Maybe I should do that now...
