If life was a musical then we would be able to tell when good or bad things were going to happen. I don't think we'd have a clue about the good things at the moment though because the dark, evil music would be playing too loud for anyone to hear anything else.
However, I should like life to be a musical because it would be better to have some form of entertainment like singing and dancing in the halls than to have what we have now. I'd call it Limbo, but perhaps others would disagree and perhaps think it another circle of Hell.
What an interesting and frightening development. I hope I shall see a bright end to this. I fear I shall not see one at all. The odds seem to be piled against me and many others now.
Congratulations to Su Li and Ernie.
Time to go to the library.

I would like to set something straight because it has been bothering me.
I am not a sex monkey.
Anyone suggesting that I am will be turned into a real monkey. A neutered, real monkey.

I do not have much to say. I cannot express what I want to say with as much ease as before.
I have been reading. It has all been very interesting.
Theodore has been very kind to allow me to stay.
That seems to be all I can say at the present time.

I recieved an owl from the Ministry of Magic this afternoon asking me to come to the Ministry tomorrow. I have no idea why. Can anybody suggest a reason? Apparently I just have to wait at the front desk and someone will collect me.
The Leaky Cauldron is desperately quiet for this time of year. I have a feeling people are less willing to be away from home. My parents have still not been in contact and I am beginning to worry. I suppose they could have decided not to come. Or perhaps they are just held up at the Muggle Airport.
I am glad that I can do magic out of school now that I am of age. I do not know if I could have coped on my own if I could not. It is nice to be able to practice new spells during the holidays.

This morning an owl brought the letter that I sent to my parents telling them not to come over yet. How strange. I sent out another, just in case. They might be here now, though.
I'm not quite sure what to do with myself. My hands are still slightly sore. Can't even wear gloves to protect them because the wool irritates the dry areas. Thank you for the lotion, though, Ryan. How are you feeling?
I wish I could do more to help with anything.

Thought that something should be written about everything. Haven't known what's been going on or where things have been for a while. It's been quite surreal recently. Sent a letter to dad delaying their trip over here.
Hands are really red and sore and chapped. Ryan, is it ok to use your moisturiser? Do you want anything from your dorm?
My last exam was History of Magic. I think it went okay. The others were okay as well. I never like talking about exams. Or thinking about them once they're done. I always think that there will be something wrong with my answers if I do.
I'm not sure what I'm doing these holidays. I know I'm staying in London for a while and then my dad wrote and said that he and mum want to see me, so that's nice. I can't believe there's only one year to go. It seems so soon.
I remember that the years used to be longer and that time went far slower. I remember arriving on the train and thinking that seven years was far too long. I was terribly, horrifically wrong.
Sometimes I miss other people. That's all.

I remember a forest. It was beside the park near my old school. The older children said it was haunted. The younger ones would dare each other to go into the forest and spend ten minutes there with their eyes closed. It wasn't haunted, of course. But it was a good place to hide when you wanted to be alone. Sometimes I wish I could have that forest again.
I have agreed to join Lavender's seance. I'm not sure why.
I have been studying and reading and writing. I've been thinking a lot as well.

Everything feels so big and empty at the moment.
I need more ink.
The House Elves are some of the most wonderful creatures on Earth... Apparently.
Why are my labels missing?
