First Week Reflections

Wow has this first week flown by! I have so many classes...I'm hoping I'll get the hang of things soon! I got an owl from my mum this week and thought I might have to leave Hogwarts. One of my family members passed away, and I thougth maybe I should leave and go home for the rest of the term. After many owls from family and friends, I've decided to stay here and make the best of my first year at Hogwarts. I think Cathe would be very happy that I'm doing this, so I'll do it for her.

Well, back to studying I go.

Hoping for a letter...

My name is Violet Le Veela, and I am hoping I will get the same letter my sister received two summers ago. She is a witch, and studies at the magnificent Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. I love helping her get her trunk on the train each fall, and I keep hoping I might get a letter and get the chance to go to Hogwarts, too.

Life at home without my sister just isn't as fun, and I would love to be in her house at Hogwarts. I've been told letters are being sent by owl post and I am anxiously awaiting an owl...I'll be sure to let you know if I get one!
