Inter-House Unity Scholarship

WOW! Today was quite a day. Returning students were given the opportunity to apply for an Inter-House Unity Scholarship. This scholarship allows students the opportunity to be sorted in to a new house at Hogwarts. This is this a great opportunity to interact with student's we normally wouldn't get to interact with.

I am happy to say that I was the recipient of one of these scholarships and I am now a proud member of Slytherin! I'm really nervous and excited about this semester. I can't wait until all of the students are here. I wonder who my room mates will be?

I guess I'd better get new robes at Diagon Alley this weekend!

Long Lost Owl

I am so sad today. My owl Snowy is missing! I sent her out on March 26th with a wonderful package to deliver to my secret pal Clionda Hopkirk and she has been seen or heard from since! I am really starting to worry about her. She's never been gone this long before. I wonder if she is ok...I wonder if she'll make it to her destination safely.

I'm going to wait a few more days and then send out a tracking owl. I just hope nothing serious has happened. Owls are so expensive to replace and the new semester is starting in just a few days!

New Semester Starting Soon

Wow, I can't believe the new semester is about ready to begin! Last semester really took a toll on me. I stayed busy the entire semester, but don't feel that I made any really true friends which is kind of disappointing. I still haven't received my OWL and that's a huge disappointment. The Headmistress is checking for me and I'm hoping that the OWL is spotted in the next few days.

I told myself that I was going to drop out of Hogwart's, but I think I've had a change of heart. I've been more active on the boards in the past week and have come to the conclusion that I'm going to make my own fun this semester. I'm not going to wait for it to come to me. If my house is quiet, I'm going to party with the other houses (if they'll have me - which I'm sure they will).

I see Educational Decree #1 has been posted and that has also made me reconsider. Hogwart's IS so much fun.

Returning students can sign up for classes next week Tuesday. I wonder which house I'll be sorted to this semester? I absolutely love the Slytherin colors, but Ravenclaw seems to be calling my name...
