Relaxing Weekend!

Would you like to know what I've done this weekend? Lie in bed and read Mercy by Jodi Picoult! Yes, my friends. All of of normal distractions have been taken away by a good friend and I've been allowed to spend the weekend doing things that I normally don't get to do because of my studies and 'other' domestic type duties. Yay for me!! I love, love, love to read. I was even treated to my favorite Starbucks this morning. Can life get any better?

I'm excited to say that I've purchased some very choice items for my partners kit. I haven't obtained any Hogwarts type paraphanelia yet, but those items will probably be last on my list. First I must complete the bag that my partner requested. No peeking yet!! Things are rather slow because I have twin distractions that slow me up a bit, but not to worry, Fair Wisteria! Your package is coming along nicely.

This next week I hope to spend a little time studying with my room mates Ophelia, Emma, and Lavender. They seem to be such wonderful gals. Hopefully, they can help me with my potions homework. I love that class, but sometimes I just don't under stand what Professor Black is talking about. Or maybe it's because I'm distracted by his mysterious dark eyes.

How did my first week go?

Well, there is so much to tell! My class schedule is rather heavy this year, so there is lots and lots of studying for me. I have the standard classes:

Defense Against the Dark Arts

I'm also studying Ancient Runes, Care of Magical Creatures and Divination. All while preparing for my O.W.L.s which will take place later this year.

There have been any number of cute wizards at Hogwarts this year, but my eyes have caught Theodore Rosier. I know that I have to focus on my studies, but Theodore, or Theo as I like to call him, is just the cutest boy in the whole school. He is a 6th year Slytherin! Every time he passes me in the hallways I feel like I'm about to pass out. Isn't that love?? Or could it be the fact that his name sake is the patron devil of seduction who tempts humans to fall in love and cause them to act foolishly?

I have spent a little time visiting with Wisteria, my spoilee for the swap, and I am looking forward to getting to know her better. I know that as the deputy headmisstress she must be busy, but I do hope that she will post a little more about herself on her blog. I've already bought a few things for her kit this last week.

Well, I must get back to dreaming of Theo studying!

The Term Has Begun!

I'm so excited! I was visiting the grounds the other night, trying to get acquainted with the layout of Hogwarts and an owl came to rest on my shoulder. The message read:

Dear Cat:
You have been chosen to spoil a very special person at Hogwarts. Her name is Wisteria Lovegood and she is the Deputy Headmistress! Spoil her well :)

You've also been assigned to a room in the Slytherin dungeon with two other Slytherin girls.
Emma Gorodok and Ophelia Crookshanks.

Winifred Wartbobble and Arabella Moody

I am so excited!!! I can't wait to get to know all these wonderful ladies and to spoil Wisteria :) This will be a good term!

Hello, all! I've arrived at Hogwarts a little early so that I can get to know some of my house mates before the term begins.

I can't wait to see who my swap partners will be! This is all so exciting! To help pass the time I took a pre-term test to see what my best class would be:

Which Class at Hogwarts Would You Excel at?

You excel at Potions. Either you're one twisted sister or you're on a certain someone's good side.

I made it!!!

I am over joyed!! I can't say much now because I have to begin packing my bags to leave for Hogwarts. Mum and Dad have promised a stop at Diagon Alley, though, so that I may purchase the supplies that I need.

I'm off!! My next post will be from the halls of Hogwarts!
