House Quiz #1

Hogwarts Hogwarts, Hoggy Warty, Hogwarts
Teach us something please
Whether we be old and bald
or young with scabby knees
Our heads could do with filling
with some interesting stuff
for now they're bare
and full of air
dead bits of flies and fluff
so teach us things worth knowing
bring back what we've forgot
just do your best
we'll do the rest
and learn until our brains all rot

Busy Busy

I think Wizarding school has more homework than I am used to. At least it's interesting. I am making new friends and loving it here. Lily is especially nice. It makes it easier when I miss my family. I can't believe I've already been here a week!

So tired

Very tired after staying up late for the feast last night. It was very hard to stay awake for classes today. Snape kept giving me dirty looks, I don't think he liked it very much that I was falling asleep. I'm so excited. Thursday I'm going to get the yarn for my swap partner.

The Sorting Ceremony

I have been sorted into Gryffindor!  I can't wait for school to begin and to start my Care of Magical Creatures class.  Also, Herbology is going to be entertaining.  I hear the mandrakes are particularly entertaining.  I am nervous about using a wand for the first time too.  I'll keep my fingers crossed!
