Diary of a First Year – Part 14
September 30, evening
Tomorrow is the first of October, which means I’ve been at Hogwarts for one month. That time seems to have flown by. I feel like I’ve always been here in some ways, and in others, it all still feels so brand new. I’ve brewed potions, transfigured matchsticks, cast charms, flown on a broomstick, and sent letters by owl. I’ve made some good friends and a few antagonists, not to mention having conversations with professors and ghosts. I’ve watched Quidditch tryouts and chess matches.
Hogwarts is really starting to feel like home. I love when the post owls come in at breakfast and land on all the tables. I love going to lessons and learning new things every day. I love spending breaks with Eloise and Cameron and laughing about everything. I even love ghosts popping out of unexpected places and moving staircases and unexplored corridors. I watch the sunsets from Ravenclaw Tower and how the stars reflect in the lake before I drift off to sleep every night and I wake up each morning with new questions to find answers for. There’s so much still to learn.
