New boy in school

So I am late posting this week, but it has been a strange week. There is a new boy in school, who isn't much of a boy. He is making all the girls swoon. I swear he is part Veela. At any rate, he has some siblings too, but this boy is just absolutely unique. I think Ms. Lily of Flitwick has her eye on him, but I am going to have to try to beat her to the punch (I hear she secretly has a boyfriend already). I am excited to see him in class. I have Ancient Ruins, Arithmancy and DIvination with him. I hear he is a wiz at Arithmancy, I may just have to need a "tutor" at some point in the near future. Oh! I snuck my muggle camera into Arithmancy yesterday, wanna see a pic of him??

I know here at hogwarts we are nestled away in the hills, but it seems that we are still boiling hot in the sun! Just wondering what you are doing to keep cool. I took a dip in the black lake last night only to find that the Grindylows were not sticking to the deeper water. They grabbed ahold of my legs and shocked me with their little stingers. Fortunately my good friend, Cassandra Puddlemere, was there to help. I don't know what I would have done had they gotten me dragged into the water. I am a fair swimmer but that lake is COLD!

Darned Grindylows. So, I am busting out my copy of Magical creatures and Where to find them, so I can do my homework. It really stinks that a prefect is assigned homework by her head girl, don't you think?
