What a day! Oh my great-aunt Susan what a day! It starts out like this:
I woke up early this morning. I woke up to the snoring of The Boy Who Lived and his redheaded partner in crime. Dean and Seamus were all ready up. I walked down the stairway to the Common Room. To my surprise, it was nearly empty. I saw the bushy haired girl, Hermione I think she was called, reading in a red armchair. I saw Dean and Seamus talking to each other animatedly. They really hit it off well. I sat down next to them and began to talk, when a gorgeous creature flowed down the steps from the girl's dormitory. Wow…Never have I seen someone so beautiful. Not that the girl next to her was ugly, she was nothing for the beautiful girl beside her. Without thinking, I asked Seamus, "Who is that?"
He called her Parvati Patil. What a lovely name. And he called the girl next to her Lavender Brown. Her parents must be artistes. By the by, I believe that I may be in love.
After a while, we, we being Seamus, Dean, Parvati, Lavender and I, went to the Great Hall to eat breakfast. After a little while, Harry Potter and Ron Weasley came down. People immediately started gaping at his forehead. That poor, poor boy. He is in for a rough couple of weeks. Professor McGonnagal passed out course cards during breakfast. I was very excited for the first day of classes.
First I had Charms. The Charms Professor, Professor Flitwick, is an odd man. He is about two and a half feet tall. He squealed when he got to Harry's name. He then fell over onto his stack of books. He is going to feel that one in the morning. The class itself was very interesting. He started out by using a spell that makes objects fly. Yeah, that spell I tried to do over the summer. We were all very excited and ready to learn how, but Professor Flitwick told us that first we have to get down the wand movement. It's Swish and Flick by the way. So for the rest of the period we practiced swishing and flicking. I think that I'll be able to make objects fly in no time. I should practice that later.
Second was Herbology. It was headed by a happy looking witch called Professor Sprout. She is head of Hufflepuff house. She looks like a Hufflepuff all right. She started out by telling us that this class will be different from most others. We will not be doing very much wand waving, and that the plants in here are dangerous. After that lecture, we mingled a bit with the other students. The Hufflepuff's are not that interesting. I became decent friends with a couple of them, Ernie McMillan and Hannah Abbot. They will end up together one of these days. I just know it. After that, we headed into the first greenhouse. This was a very interesting class. It's by no means my favorite, but it's all right.
After Herbology was Potions. It was taught by a man with revoltingly greasy hair. Professor Snape, he called himself. He decided to pick on Potter. He asked him several questions, which nobody, other than myself, and Hermione, could have known at this point. Snape was being awful to Harry, and when Harry decided to tell him to ask Hermione, he took a point away from Gryffindor. That man is so awful, but he's nothing compared to the Slytherins, which he runs their House, and to top things off, we have this class with them. We then got ready with our cauldrons and we tried to make a potion to cure boils. Snape kept swooping over us like a large bat, criticizing our work as he went along.
Thankfully after Potions was lunch. I sat with Lavender, Parvati, Seamus and Dean again. We talked about our lessons, and then we even tried the Wengardium Leviosa charm. My fork almost rose, it moved a little anyway. It was very hard not to stare at Parvati. She has beautiful eyes and smile. She and Lavender were as close as Seamus and Dean were. Did everyone have a best friend besides me?
After lunch was Transfiguration. I had been really looking forward to this class. It seemed so awesome to be able to turn things into others. McGonnagal started off by turning her desk into a pig and back again. We were all very excited, and she must have noticed because she said that it would be a long time before we would transfigure animals into furniture. We took a lot of difficult notes, which I still have a writer's cramp from. Then she handed us a needle and told us how to transfigure it into a toothpick. Only Hermione made progress, it had changed very little, but it still changed. McGonnagal even flashed Hermione a smile. I also need to practice that, but where can I get needles?
After that very interesting lesson, was Defense the Dark Arts. Everyone was looking very forward to this class. After all, no one ever lasted more than a year teaching this class. This year it was the former Muggle Studies professor, Professor Quirrel. Professor Quirrel stuttered a lot. Every other word almost. He talked for what seemed like ever on vampires, werewolves, and he even mentioned dementors. Not much of the class was still paying too much attention.
The last class of the day was History of Magic. During the summer I read part of the book, and it is pretty interesting. I had a little bit of hope left for the professor. We all sat down, I sat next Seamus and Lavender. Then out of the chalkboard a ghost appeared. He was the professor. Professor Binns. He should have been called Professor Boring. Because he went on and on and on about stuff that no one was paying attention to. Hermione tried, and she did the best out of all of us. After about fifteen minutes, I noticed that Ron and Harry were playing hangman, Neville was reading a book about Herbology, Dean had even fallen asleep. I tried to pay attention, but after a while I gave it up and started talking to Seamus. Parvati and Lavender were talking animatedly, and Parvati kept giving me a beautiful smile.
After that was dinner. Dinner was a very noisy affair, and for good reason. The older students were yelling across the hall to each other, Percy Weasley, the prefect, tried to keep order. It was hard not to laugh at his feeble attempt, but I managed. The five of us talked about how boring Binns was and how we were going to manage Potions. On the other side of us, Harry and Ron were talking animatedly about their lessons, and still, people were staring at him. He was greeted by the people saying, "Did you see him?"
After Dinner, we headed to the Common Room. After telling the Fat Lady, the portrait, who would call a portrait the Fat Lady, we headed in and sat in some of the squishy red armchairs by the fire. We talked for what seemed like hours, and then Seamus brought up Parvati and Lavender, who had went to bed a few minutes before. "Lavender is a very beautiful girl…Lavender has the best smile ever" and things to that nature were all we heard for a while.
After we heard the love story of Seamus, Dean asked if I had ever been on a broomstick. I replied no, because I am very clumsy. Super clumsy. I may try to walk with poise and grace, but that isn't my style. I fall all the time.
At about 11:00 we went to bed, and changed into our pajamas, and now here I am. I had better stop writing, due to the fact that I need my sleep desperately at the moment.
