Wow. Oh, wow,! I've been on vacation in France, and I only got a chance to open my Hogwarts letter now. It came when I was away, but I hadn't bothered with it because, well, I was on vacation and I just figured it was the same old stuff they always tells us but, well, they've made me Head Girl!

Mum and dad nearly died out of excitement. I don't think I've ever seen them so blatantly emotional since...probably since they made me prefect. I don't know what to make of it yet exactly. I think I'm still recovering from to shock, brain's still trying to process, et cetera, et cetera. Well, of course I'm happy about this, who wouldn't be? But I'm nervous too. Seventh year's going to be hard enough just being a student, never mind having to be Head Girl too. Nonetheless, I wouldn't change it, it would be rather daft of me to want to change something like this, wouldn't it?

Well, I certainly will have my plate filled this year. Anyway, as to my not using this journal at all since the end of term my only excuse is that I've had a rather busy summer. Mum's been trying to wed me off to disgusting men nearly twice my age having lots of parties and all kinds of get-togethers with friends of the family and things like that. They've been, er, interesting? Yes, interesting is definitely a suitable adjective so are boring, irritating, and ridiculous. I have to say, I'm glad the school year is about to begin. While I've had a busy summer, I haven't really had the most enjoyable summer. To be honest, it was utterly dull. France was beautiful, but I wasn't allowed to do anything but stay in the manor we have there, meet random friends of my parents, and go about the town and Paris with my mother. My parents feeble and insufficient excuse for this abominable treatment of their seventeen (not seven, not ten) year old daughter was "It is not proper of a young lady of your stature to go gallivanting about a foreign country without an escort". Yes, they really did say gallivanting. Yes, I am still mortified as they said this in front of three of their friends' sons, all of whom sniggered at this. Needless to say it was pretty boring. Oh, and awkward, let's not forget awkward.

Hopefully, everyone else has had a better summer than I had. I'm really looking forward to seeing you guys again! Has anyone else put off their school shopping like I have? I still need to get it done, and I'd love some company if there are any other procrastinators out there reading this.

Back to school. I don't know if I'm happy, sad, or just plain scared. Actually, I think the latter describes how I feel most adequately. It's seventh year which means N.E.W.T. year. I'm doing my best not to think about them too much yet, but it's difficult. I'm not exactly sure what I want to do once I graduate. If I do well I could try and become a healer, I took a sort of faux-internship there this summer, or being an unspeakable would be pretty bloody cool. I dunno, I just want to do something. I'm definitely not going to be a housewife. I mean seriously, can any of you picture me as a housewife? I don't really think so.

But enough talk about school. My summer's been all right. There were some ups and downs to it. I did get my mother and father to actually allow me to do the internship, and while it was somewhat stressful it was only for a week and it was very interesting. We also went to Paris on vacation. It was as beautiful as ever, I don't really think I can get sick of France. On the downside, however, my mother seemed to have more parties to go to than ever and she was especially intent on making sure I attended each of them with her. As to be expected, there were many "fine" and "respectable" young men there (or, I think they more accurately could be describe as either "sleazy" or "boring") for me to talk to. However, despite my mother's best attempts I do not have a boyfriend, a fiance, or a husband as of yet.

That sums it up basically! How has everyone else been?

That's so horrible what happened to that little girl. Whoever did a thing like that should just crawl up and die. Absolutely disgusting.

It's scary too, in Hogwarts of all places. That poor girl..oh and her parents and family. How can anyone do something like that? Clearly, they don't have a heart at all.

1) Is it green, purple, red, or blue?
Um, purple.

2) Your nose.
My nose? Why are you talking about my nose?

3) Ever kissed a chicken?
No...though I'm sure they're lovely kissers.

4) Do you have a sexy
Oh of course. It's my best feature.

5) Do you motivate through fear or guilt?
No, I don't think so.

6) What deep, dark secret do you have that if it ever got out would
make you crawl under a rock for a decade or two?

No you didn't! Liar.

8) What would you like to do to the person who tagged you
to take this survey?
Go out to Hogsmeade, perhaps. Buy one of them a book and the other something with cameras. Or trouble, which I shouldn't though.

9) Tag a pile of people and
guilt trip them into taking this survey too and spread the confusion and the
shame as they attempt the ridiculous.
Julie, Ted, Narcissa, Bellatrix, Regulus, Peter, and Frank.

10) Now go crawl under a
rock where decent people don't have to look at you, you chicken kisser!
Maybe you're the chicken kisser. You seem veryyy found of chickens. Too found, I say.

Yay my birthday was Wednesday. I have to thank Cissa for the lovely necklace, Sirius for the wide assortment of equally great gifts, James for the cake, and Peter for the sugar quills! Sirius, the cake was a very sweet gift but I'm not sure if cooking is your forte, my dear.

Anyway, I'll be having a party this Saturday in the room of requirement. If you can come, do come!

(OOC: Uhmm I'll think of a time for this eventually. Is there any prefered times for you guys?)

Well, since everyone seems to be doing it, I thought I would too.

[ mood | crappy ]

So, I've been up to a few things. My sisters and I, their boyfriends, and Bellatrix's boyfriend's brother who wasn't very chatty, but nice to look at (who I guess was my date, though I'm not really sure..) went out to eat. I actually had a pretty good time. Some of the subject matters were a bit deep, but over all it was quite an enjoyable night! I also studied with Remus and Dina, and apparently we actually went through with the little study group idea, also very pleasing!

Now, this is the part of my entry where things aren't quite so happy for Andromeda. Lily and I planned to have a party, and but of course, I got sick. Perfect timing, as always. Illness never strikes at the appropriate times. It never comes to me during a dull History of Magic lesson, but rather when I have a party planned. I feel terrible, I'm really sorry Lily! I heard it was fun though, so that makes me feel better about it.

Julie, Ted, and Alice are having a party though, so I can make up for my loss with this one

Note to self: You WILL write in this more often. daily, weekly maybe.

So how is everyone? I'm quite bored, actually. I feel so sorry for my journal. It gets neglected far too often, not anymore though.

The truth is I don't have much to say. We need some sort of excitement.

So Julie's in the hospital wing for getting bit by a posinous plant, or something.

How are you feeling? Not too good I take it? Maybe I'll stop by and visit if I can. Other wise, feel better!

Today's Valentine's Day, happy Valentine's Day everyone! I have no definite plans for myself, I never do really. However, I am going to Hogsmeade. I'll just meet up with whoever is there.

Hope you all have a good day!

I just had the weirdest craving for peanut butter and crackers, very odd. However, they do have a wide assortment of any type of food product in the kitchens, so it was easily met.

Valentine's Day is coming up, I forgot, last year did they have little cupids with arrows flying around? That's not very good..naked babies with sharp items. I never got how the idea of shooting an arrow, of all things, through someone's heart is supposed to be romantic. I don't even get the symbolism of it. Sure bound by love, but can't they use ribbons? To me that's just homicidal and disturbing! I have no problem with love, but as for arrows going through my heart no thank you! I wonder who created that nonsense myth to begin with. Clearly, they didn't think it out.

Is it me or has Hogwarts turned into an all girls school?

Except, you know, the little kids. However, the boys third year and bellow in Ravenclaw might as well be girls anyway.

Was there an alien abduction that I missed?

[ mood | lazy ]

Happy late new years to you all!

So, when I was bored yesterday I made a list of things I could do when I am bored. Number one was make something stupid such as a 'what to do when you're bored list. A close number two was 'get off your lazy arse and go somewhere.' but for whatever reason I am utterly incapable of doing that at the moment. I can't remember the other things on my list because either I threw it out or simply lost it. So that would be why I am writing this entry.

If someone, bloody anyone, wants to do something I may just leave the dormitory. I know it will take tons and tons of effort but I might just do it.

In the mean time, I did find this slightly amusing spell in a book I got for Chirstimas. It's simple, it merely just conjures a slogan about your name. They're usually pretty funny. Or at the very least, they're really random.

Here's mine:
Wow! I Could Have Had an Andromeda!

You bet!

I know, that you know, that you want to be sloganized.

Half of the slogans are prone not to make sense.

Why is it that everyone in the entire Ravenclaw house chose to go to the common room today?

I had a very nice Christmas. Narcissa sent me a lovely brooch! Thanks again Cissa. Also, I recieved an unmarked present of rubber ducks. It was a really cute gift I like them, but I'm curious to know who went them! Ehe. They squeek.

Also, mum and dad sent me a few gifts as well. A book I wanted, Jewlery, clothes, you know those type of things. It was all really nice.

And I hope you all liked your gifts as well! Most importantly I hope you all got them. My owl is kind of acting weird at the moment, I think it has some sort of sickness(or rather the moron behind the computer messed up the HTML codes for like three of them).

Hey Sirius, how about you lend Julie and I your camera? Sound good? I believe you remember what happened to mine, your little brother stepped on it at your mum's last family party. Still haven't gotten a new one. So please?

By the way, Regulus, you remain unforgiven for that incident. Until you buy me a new one that is.
