It seems that just getting away from everything for a few days was the answer. I am eternally grateful to my Astronomy Mistress, Professor Sinistra for giving me access to the astronomy tower to gather my thoughts and emotions. It was so beautiful out there and the time actually helped me to heal up a bit and find the courage to do things again. Luna was very helpful to
and my inspiration to actually take care of myself again. Speaking of which, Luna would you like to spend some time together at the lake this weekend if your jealous of anything that gets near you serpent won't mind.
Classes are well although I think Professor Tonks will kill us but its good to actually get some practical experience in defense. I wish I were better with a wand. I don't think daggers will protect me from curses. Transfiguration is okay, but I really despise it, and even charms isnt very fun.
My Apprentice ships are going okay. okay being an optimistic term. I have very few problems with any of my co apprentices, and I hope that Snape's idea will drive our research farther. However after our note session Monday, I am convinced I will
be forced to follow Draco's Ideas. I just pray that our next potions will actually accomplish something. I think each of us will only get so far without another. I think however, that one of the apprentices is holding out on us, but that is their discretion. I am very suspicious of everything, but I have always seen a bit more than some. As for astronomy I can't do much of anything until Professor Sinistra decides to tell me the other materials I will need. I am grateful that I could get into that one and It will help in my potions research. I am curious as to how the postions of the stars will affect certain potion's effects. I am intrigued into how the dual apprenticeship will work myself considering only a few great wizards such as Merlin, and Archimedes even had masteries in thes two subjects together.
In other news we lost the Quidditch came to Slytherin, No biggie, I dont really care anyway, but I did go because there was nothing else I felt like doing. I am also going to go to the Halloween ball as Robert Boyle. I wonder how many people will actually know who that is. It looks really nice. I don't have anyone to ask to the ball
because the girl I want to ask is taken dammit. And hey for once in my young life I am not totally confused or lost at this point.
