it's almost time!

Yay, the student lists are posted and I'm in Ravenclaw for my second term! I'm looking forward to finding out who I'll room with and getting to know the new students. It looks like one of my roomies from last term (Emma) isn't coming back this term, but the other (Patonga) is.

I can't wait to get back to Hogwarts and see the teachers and start my new classes...

How is everyone? I hope you had a great summer!
