Hello there! It’s my second week back at Hogwarts school and it’s finally the weekend! I’m starting term as a Hufflepuff 5th year and guess what? I’ve been appointed a prefect by Professor McGonagall! You would not believe how many times I muttered ‘Oh my God’ over and over again when I received my letter. Of course, Mum and Dad were thoroughly pleased, but I have no idea why someone would want to select someone as rowdy and busybody as me as a prefect!
I’m still on the Hufflepuff Quidditch Team this year, as a Chaser. Miranda, the team captain are having tryouts for a Beater and a Chaser later so I need to show my face on the pitch too. It’d splendid being able to be on the pitch again! It’s definitely not the same as playing tag on broomsticks with my cousins back at home. And I’d love to wipe those smirks off those Slytherins’ faces once we beat them in the first match of this term, which is next month. Well golly, now that I’ve said it, it’s got me quite nervous too.
I’m having OWLs this term, in June, and you wouldn’t believe the homework the teachers are giving us! Foot-long essays for Potions, Transfiguration and History of Magic already! Oh, and another thing, we have a new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher this year (don’t we always?) and his name Professor Bernard Follgrew. I’ve yet to have a lesson with him, but Louisa and the others are pretty impressed with him so I cannot wait to see what he’s got in store for us next week.
Well obviously, being a prefect means I’m not allowed to go wandering around the castle with Sophie in search of ‘adventure’ like we used to love, but I’m trying to keep the magic in the air, if you know what I mean. I’ve got my eye on one of those Ravenclaw 5th years, and this is absolutely private, but I think I have a crush on him. Well, don’t go around telling anyone that, eh? I know Sophie and Joyce would definitely take the mickey out of me if they knew.
Well, now Athena (which is my owl, for your information) is ‘hrrpmh’-ing very grumpily next to me and I reckon I should send this letter already. I’m not sure where this letter is going, but if you should find it, then bless your soul! You sure are one lucky wizard/witch, eh? Until later, then. Bye!
