Subject:Back to School
Time:6:09 am.
Mood: lonely.
When I got my trunk stuck coming through the barrier at Kings Cross I was pretty sure it was my luggage's way of telling me that I'd left at least eight or nine things at home. I guess that my forgetting things is a bit of a back to school tradition by now. Gran usually writes me a list of things to tick off as I pack, but I mentioned that maybe I could just do it myself this year and she said that was just fine and then spent the next week referring to me as "boy" and sniffing at the house elf. I guess she was a bit miffed so that's probably why she didn't owl the last package until today. Anyway, that's why I always get so many packages at the beginning of term, this year she had to send:

- My Gryffindor scarf
- My charms textbook
- My spare gloves for Herbology
- My apparation license
- The keys to the restricted access greenhouse
- The Herbology book I got for my birthday
- My chess set
- My computer- it's good to see the old girl!

I knew I'd like Advanced Herbology, but I didn't realise it was quite so brilliant. I'm half way through a research assignment on the sociological impacts of plants with magical properties being altered for medicinal purposes! Professor Sprout says that since I'm enjoying it so much I can look into doing something related to it for my major assignment later in the year, so that should be fun.

Subject:I got it!
Time:3:51 pm.
Mood: happy.
I went into London this morning and I got my apparation license! Ron took me into the testing place and I felt so much better this time! The man lady said I was much more confident this time and I wouldn't be anything to worry about, so I'm all ready for apparating around the country I guess!

Ron came over yesterday and we played chess, I had a really good time. Today I was pruning the Flutterby Bush when I remembered I had some Mooncalf dung left over from when I was potting the mimbulus mimbletonia. So I tried it on my herb patch, and I'll see whether it helped them along at all. I knew I shouldn't have planted the venomous tentacula so close to the herbs, but I just didn't have the space to give it a seperate plot. I'll try clearing away the Alihotsy and putting the herbs in there, the tentacula will probably get along with it better. Trevor's taken to spending the night under my bed, and I haven't yet decided if I like that much, so I slept on my couch last night, which was okay.

Mood: cheerful.
I did it! I finished all of my holiday homework! I guess this means I'll be able to bring my computer to school, after all, which is great. Once I'd finished the last of my Herbology (I always save the best 'till last), I practised apparating some more. I tried doing what Harry said, about apparating in small places, but I ended up the wrong way round and fell head first, into a pile of shoes.
My Mimbulus Mimbletonia's budded some more, so I've spent the morning potting the offspring. I don't suppose I need bother planting them in the garden, as we have a whole plot of them now. Maybe I can give the new ones away. That's what my great Aunt Doreen did when her Crup had a litter. Would any one like one?

Mood: hopeful.
Hermione showed me this site and thought I ought to get one of these journals, once she found out my Uncle Algie had given me a computer. I hope this is working okay, it's just a test.

These letter buttons are really small. I think I'll finish reading the manual.
