Owl Post

This past week at Hogwarts was very busy. I have gotten settled in to the Snake Pit with my 3 roomies - Lily, Celecily, and Ariadne. In addition to my spoilee pal's name, the family owl Nemesis, had brought some other items for me. The first was the class list.

In addition to the above classes, I will also be taking Ancient Runes and Arithmancy. So I have a full schedule this year. Normally my favorite class is Potions. But this year, I might make an exception. We have a new professor for Defense Against the Dark Arts and he is completely dark and twisty looking. But in a good way.

Professor Cornelius Lufkin

Also mum had sent me some goodies. There was the two gummy snakes that didn't last long once they got here. Plus, she sent me some roving so I can work on my beginners spinning skills.

The roving came from Tempted Yarns and is 100% Blue Face Leicester top in Slytherin colors. It is very soft and hopefully I can find some time between classes and studying and quidditch to practice the spinning.

Down In the Snake Pit


The term has begun. I am thoroughly enjoying living down in the Snake Pit with my fellow Slytherins. This year I will be bunking with Ariadne Malfoy, Ceciley Fortescue, and Lily Of Flitwick. Ceciley even came up with a name for us - the Sultry Sirens of Slytherin. Seriously, how cool is that name? Plus I have also received the owl post on my spoilee pal. She is in Gryffindor and I have already started to find some small items to go in her package.

Also, I have this small confession to make. I have this crush on Oliver Wood. Yeah, I know he was the Gryffindor Keeper. But hey, I can't resist that adorable grin. So that explains why I have taken a liking to Puddlemere United.

Your Patronus would be a Raven!
Take this quiz!

"Your patronus would take the form of a Raven. Ravens are commonly associated with the night. They are avid tricksters and are smart, witty, and cunning. Ravens also signify a change in consciousness. The sight of a Raven is usually considered a bad omen, but in some parts of the world it is a good premonition. They represent sins, especially thievery, gluttony and false teachings."
