Well, today was lovely.
I overslept, having got used to doing so on break. So I dashed into breakfast late, and only got a bit of toast before it was off to our first class, which was Care of Magical Creatures. This, of course, meant tramping out into the snow-- and while two feet of snow is fun enough when you're wandering around of your own accord, it's not terribly nice to try to navigate when you're half awake and freezing (having not had time to dress warmly, and also having forgot what classes I had today).
If they're going to have a non-practical lesson, couldn't they have it inside? I like dragons quite a lot, but hearing about such inherantly warm creatures did not terribly improve my disposition.
Speaking of which, Chaeyz, I'm awfully sorry I snapped at you at lunch. I was tired and rather sore and I think I've caught a cold. I wasn't actually angry at you.
Charms went well enough, but I always do like that class and it's my best subject.
After classes let out I waited around in the library until Remus's study group started to show up. I was worried when Remus himself didn't come, but Sirius showed up and told us all he was sick again. Remus, I think, must have the worst immune system ever. However, Sirius and I had a nice long debate with my room mate over Grindylows, which allowed me to (politely) let out some steam, and I expect I'll sleep rather better tonight, and wake up with a cold.
Also, and the reason I wanted to make this post in the first place:
Jenyae asked last post what part of Ireland I was from and what my clan was. I was rather chagrined to realize I didn't know the latter. Well, I know the basics, but I don't know any of the history or much about my mother's family at all. Which makes me rather sheepish, so before I answer your questions I'm going to owl my mother and have her explain things to me. I expect I'll spend this summer exploring the Muggle part of my heritage, which I really should have done before.
