I'll... I'll be up in my dorm room for the rest of the evening if anyone needs me.

...The outside world isn't safe to be in anymore.

I've been busy writing owls this morning, as I had to reply to letters sent by my parents and my brother. News on the homefront is all well, thank Merlin.

Here... Well, Laura's sick again. Not as bad as that last time, but I'm still rather worried. The poor child's immune system took a good beating before and I hope she can fight this latest bug off with minimal problems.

So yes. Must be off to see how she's doing and to drop off some work that Catherine gave to me to give to her (I'm sure she'll just be so excited to see that...).

Kevin, I'm still meeting you up in the library around four, don't worry. That Transfiguration thing is still giving me a hard time.

And Ellie? I still have your Herbology notes from the other day, in case you were wondering where they had gotten to.

So this is what it feels like to be riding on the so-called Cloud Nine...

...I like it. A lot.

Well, I had a pleasant trip out to Hogsmeade this weekend... Quite a nice change from classes and being stuck in the castle all day long. My sister gave me a list about three feet long (and I'm not exaggerating by much, here) of things she wanted at Honeyduke's, and I obliged, of course... Gave me an excuse to get similar things for me, heh.

Oh, and Kevin? I still have your notes from last Friday's Charms class. I'm assuming you want them back soon, hmm? :)

[Private: Kevin]

Meet me in our usual spot tomorrow after class? It's too late to try risk sneaking out now... See you at breakfast. Love you :)

Yeah ok, I know it's been a couple weeks since I last wrote in this thing... Homework And seeing Kevin has been absolute killer as of late. I'm beginning to think that the teachers don't want us to survive this year. Honestly.

Thank Merlin there's a trip out to Hogsmeade this weekend. I need to get away from this place for a bit.

current mood: okay

Laura was let go from the hospital wing a couple of hours ago... Exactly a week after she was admitted. It's just like Madame Pomfrey said. The woman was right, as per usual...

My sister's still not back to her usual self, as she's been lying on one of the sofas down in the common room ever since she got here, but I'm so glad that she's improved this much.

Mum managed to get in for a couple days to spend time with her, and I think that greatly improved her spirits.

Well, I think I ought to go back downstairs and see how she's doing and make sure Catherine and Jessica don't wear her out. Honestly, I never knew it was even possible for a person to have as much energy as those two do.

current mood: relieved

Laura's best friend, Catherine, just gave me some disturbing news a little while ago about my sister, and that's why I've been up in the Hospital Wing all evening. Madame Pomfrey says that Laura's contracted the flu somehow, and a rather bad case of it at that. She's currently got a fever of almost a hundred and two degrees, and is complaining about a headache and muscle aches... She's been a little on the tired side ever since Christmas, I've noticed, but I never thought it'd translate into this...

They're going to see if Mum can come up to spend some time with her, as Madame Pomfrey said Laura'd have to spend about a week (!) in the Hospital Wing, while the various medicinal potions take effect. She was calling out for Mum a little while ago, but Mum's currently in Madrid on work and won't get home until tomorrow morning. I got called up here instead, seeing as I'm the next best thing. I am her sister, after all.

She'll be all right, though... She has to be.

...Christmas is in an hour! Oh Merlin, I'm acting like such a little kid again tonight, and I love it! :)

There were various relatives over for supper, but only my aunt Amelia is here now, along with my parents, Laura (who's asleep), Matthew, Stephanie (his girlfriend) and me. Laura was actually not being her usual pesky self, which was rather surprising. She was all bouncy and giggly today, which, under the circumstances, is to be expected, I guess. and I wasn't a whole lot better. I may be eighteen, but I can certainly act like I'm ten at any given time. :)

And I must be off now, as Mum is calling for my assistance for some chore or another... Why it can't be fixed with some sort of spell or put off until tomorrow, I don't really know...

In the meantime, Happy Christmas, all! Hope it's enjoyable. :)

For this being the last couple weeks prior to the Christmas holiday, I'm a little bit surprised that I haven't had all that much work to complete... Granted, there still is quite a bit to do, seeing as there are NEWTs to take in June, but... it just doesn't seem like a heavy workload. I remember last year at this time... Oh, Gods. Talk about stress!

But seeing as lately I have a thing for, ahem, not exactly paying attention in class as thinking about one's boyfriend is so much more interesting than goblin rebellions of 1387 there's probably a whole lot of information I'm missing. Which will eventually catch up with me and it will not be a pretty sight.

It's best not to dwell on that, though, I think. Vacations are not times to be stressing out.

And I plan to sit back, relax and enjoy this one.

So. What's this about a... pudding (correct me if I'm wrong) fight that appears to be all the rage today? It sounded like all those involved certainly had an... interesting time. Someone please fill me in, as I don't think I understand much of what went on except that Mandy did something to Justin (or vice versa) and the two appear to be arguing over whatever happened...

...Not that it's any of my business of knowing what happened or anything.

Well, things have been rather quiet around here lately. Not that that's a bad thing, or anything. Quite the contrary, actually.

Got a couple owls from home this morning, which was nice. Dad's off to Italy or something for a couple weeks, apparently. Work-related, obviously. Mum was in a bit of a huff that she couldn't go with him, as she's up to her ears in work too, she said. Hopefully, when and if I get into the Ministry, the workload'll have died down a little. I don't think I could hack working twelve and thirteen hour days, six days a week.

And my cousin Sarah-Jane is getting married this summer. I'm so excited! I've met her now-fiance a bunch of times (they've known each other since just after Sarah-Jane's graduation from Hogwarts ), and he's incredibly nice. Works for a Muggle newspaper in London. She's asked me (and a couple of our other cousins, seeing as she has no sisters) to be bridesmaid for her! Only thing is, she's having a Muggle wedding ceremony (as Robert is a Muggle), and I know I'm not going to like wearing those fancy dresses. For one, there's no tye dye or beads or denim anywhere in the mix, and I don't do the long dress thing. But I'll have to shut my mouth and do this for her, since this should and will be the happiest day or her life and I'm not about to let any whining on my behalf spoil it for her.

And now... On to the ever mundane Transfiguration essay. What fun that'll be...

I hate arguing. Especially when it's with my best friend.

...Kevin, you're not too busy at the moment, are you?

I don't know why I'm bothering to pick this up and write... I have nothing to say today that's coherent or able to be shared with others.

...So, yes. Must be off.

Zach... dead... murdered... Nononono...

...This is just a dream... A really bad dream. Nightmareish. It can't be real...

...I can't think.... Do anything...

Oh my God...

My eighteenth birthday's Thursday... I can't believe it! Me, eighteen! Whoa.

When I was little I used to wish I was born a day later, so that I could celebrate on Halloween. I still kind of do, sometimes. I think it'd be brill, getting to stuff your face with sweets on your birthday and not being told to ease off.

I think I'll go out flying for a bit now, actually. Haven't done so in a loooong time... And it's such a nice day out.

I feel like I'm the odd one out in my circle of friends as of late. Mainly because it seems like they all have a significant other and spend all their spare time talking about or being with said person... I mean, there's nothing wrong with that, but I can't help but feel lonely... Zach has Lisa. Justin has Padma. Hannah and Ernie have each other.

Which leaves ickle ol' me all by her lonesome self. As usual. Even though I'm perfectly content to be unattached (I don't know things any other way), I'm still jealous of everyone all the time sometimes... Not that I let them know that. Have got to keep a smile on my face. Laugh. Pretend nothing bothers me, even when it does. After all, I'm the self-proclaimed optimist. Although I must admit, nothing would be a better test of character than remaining optimistic in such a pessimistic situation...

...Hopefully my Mr. Right isn't too far off in the distance.


Sweet Merlin, is the end of October already? I can't believe I'll be eighteen in a week and a half! Bloody unreal, that is. Even though it means I'll revert back to being one of the oldest students in the school, a feeling which I'm not too fond of. But it also means presents. :)

I just hope the teachers don't assign much work to do that night. Or have any tests scheduled for that day. Both would be horrible.

I'll be up in my room if any one needs me Ha. Right. You're all much too busy to remember insignificant me....

current mood: lonely

I never realised how much homework they assign sixth-years. If this is any indication of next year...

Wait. It doesn't do anyone good if I whine all day long, so I'll stop.

Got an owl from my brother this morning, which was rather strange, as he always sends his news via Mum and Dad. I haven't opened it yet, as I keep thinking it's horrible news...

Ah. And I'm the self-proclaimed optimist?

Perhaps... Perhaps it really good news that he doesn't Mum and Dad to know about yet... That's reasonable, as he always tells me stuff before our parents...

Yes, that must be it. Am feeling much better.

Oh, and this is completely unrelated to anything else contained here, but... Justin? You are so dead. Consider yourself warned.

current mood: peaceful
