sorry i haven't been writing lately. i've got a lot of stuff on my mind...and i think im picking up french really slowly; i've been spending all my time learning how to conjugate verbs and gather enough saliva to hack up the sounds. but anyway, school's alright. im into my sixth year and im still trying to talk to the professors on what i really want to focus on. i think i might go into muggle studies of some sort. it seems like a fairly fascinating topic, and since my dad is a muggle...and a lot of my friends, actually, it'd be pretty cool to observe muggles from a wizard standpoint. but i don't know. i could lose interest in it pretty fast.
i haven't seen susan around lately. we've met up maybe once or twice. last time, we had a good "study" date. but since then...nothing. i think she's mad at me; she seems a little cold. have i not been a good boyfriend? i don't know. GIRLS! so much trouble.
there have been a lot of Beauxbatons girls making moves on me. maybe it's my french. it is the language of love after all. i don't know what to do with all this attention. could this be what susan's mad about? that's dumb. it's not like im really giving them any attention. some of them are pretty cute though. susan. susan. none of them have too much of an intriguing personality.

do you want to meet up sometime this week?

Whew. What an experience. I apologize for slacking on my journal entries, but I assure that it was under extenuating circumstances that I was hindered from more frequent writing habits.
What happened was this...I was pulling out magical weeds in the backyard that my mom said were harmful in one way or another. She cautioned me to be careful, which I was...to a certain extent. The weeds looked harmless to me...and fun to play with...so, I took one of the weeds--which looked like normal grass--and blew. Suddenly, the air around pulsated and the solid ground gave way to small circle of mushy mud around me. It was like...what I imagine quicksand being like. I slid through it and all of a sudden, I was in this crazy world. Even crazier than all the crazy things in Muggle and non-Muggle world put together. There were giant gold coins dangling in the air and ground, a little man wearing red overalls and a red cap with the letter "M" on it, accompanied by a taller guy wearing green overalls and a green cap with the letter "L" on it. They seemed to have Italian accents. Anyway, they were running around collecting gold coins and jumping on these turtles which roamed just about everywhere. There were question marks that these fellows kept hitting their heads on. There's so much more, involving mushrooms, stars, shrinking and growing...but I can hardly even begin to describe it all.
It took awhile, but I finally negotiated my way through the various pipes overlaying the entire land to find myself finally back in good ol' normal London. Thank goodness I have magic, otherwise, I don't know how I would have defended myself or got back.

To put it mildly, I'm taken aback. From all the things that Hermione has ever said, Hogwarts is one of the most magically well-protected places on the planet. The solar system. The universe. And, I can't really see the advantage or reason to blowing up the castle. I mean, Voldey went there, was a student there; Slytherin was a professor there; I imagine that Death Eaters would be rather fond of the memories they carry. And the Chamber of Secrets was there. That's a "good memory" for them. Plus, people were just getting out of school. Also, their kids probably go here. Are they not considering the safety and education of their kids? Bloody idiots, the lot of them. So, really, I don't understand what the whole she-bang-boom move was all about. I think it just goes to prove how ridiculously insane the Death Eaters are.

OWLS...oh, how they kill me.

the streaking happens tomorrow. start point is the outside grounds, then we'll run in and once through each floor of the castle, and into all the major study rooms. start time...after breakfast.
I need to work out more. I feel like my stomach muscles aren't the steely wonders they used to be.

I was taking a shower today, getting all fresh and clean when I heard the sound of females giggling. I thought to myself, "why in the world am I hearing female voices in the guy's shower room?"
Well, the answer to that is that I accidentally wandered into the wrong shower room; I was in the girl's shower room. And, even worse, I forgot to bring my towel.
I had to haul out of there really quick...but I don't think I was quick enough.
My only comfort is the knowledge that I am a buff, toned man.

I've gone purple. I have reason to suspect my roommate.
He's lucky that purple brings out my eye color.
Otherwise, I'd pound him silly.

Interesting this Harry Potter business. And I used to be one of those crazy fans. *shudder*...oh to think back on those days! I was just looking through pictures I've taken with my camera, and...wow, 99% of them were of Harry. Some of them are pretty funny.
Still torn. I haven't talked or met up with Susan at all lately. And my relative's best friend has been contacting me via Muggle mail. I returned a couple of a her letters just to be friendly. We just talked about very general stuff, school, etc. She doesn't know I'm a wizard or anything either. I mentioned that I have a girlfriend. She still seems intent on knowing me better. Is she just being really friendly? Am I wrong to respond? Maybe I should talk to Andy.

So I went home this weekend. Family event. One of my relatives brought her best friend, too...and man, this girl was hot. I don't know. Maybe it's because I haven't seen so much of Susan lately...but I was really attracted to her. I hope this doesn't go any further.

[private]So...I'm feeling a bit disgruntled lately. I feel like I haven't been seeing a lot of Susan lately. I mean, yeah, we got together for Valentine's Day, briefly, and we met up with each other once after getting back from the winter holidays...but that's pretty much it. We are able to catch sight of each other briefly during meals, but for the most part, one or the both of us is/are so busy, we just don't seem to have time for each other. I'm not the needing type, but I don't think that that's healthy if we're supposed to be building our relationship. Anyway, I'm supposed to be visiting home this weekend for some family event or another. I've already talked to my professors and Dumbledore about it, so they know. That should be exciting and a change of pace from this humdrum study dungeon.[/private]
