Well, the first few days of classes have commenced and I must say that I'm quite surprised at their difficulty, or lack thereof. Not that I'm bragging or anything of the sort; perhaps my notion of N.E.W.T. classes was just unrealistic. Potions was manageable, as was Astronomy and Defence Against the Dark Arts. Charms and Transfiguration were slightly more demanding. I could sleep through Muggle Studies if I chose to do so. Either way, I have high hopes that this term's work might ease up from last term. The summer holiday is always a distant goal, however.
Speaking of which, I figured I might as well elaborate on the occurrences during the holiday and such, since there isn't much to tell as it is. My father was with his new
wife fiancee gir female for the majority of the summer, holidaying with her, and Belle was with her friends, as well, leaving me with the chateau to myself. That, my friends, was my holiday.
I finally ventured out only a few days before returning to Hogwarts to purchase books, supplies, robes, et cetera et cetera. I could go into long, drawn out, rather boring details of my visit, but I'm sure there are plenty of other things one could be doing.
The train ride here was equally uneventful, though...undeniably pleasant. For its own reasons.
