This holiday has been utterly boring. Aside from a few interesting things in the Daily Prophet to read, I've been stuck in the house with nothing to do. Sirius has left, so at least there's peace. Although Mother still rages about him whenever I, or anyone else for that matter, make any sort of allusion to him. She's absolutely livid that he's got without her permission. I'm surprised she's not tracked him down yet. Of course, I know where he is, but I've not told her. I'll just get in trouble for not mentioning it straight away.

My only company in this house, aside from Mother and occasionally Father, has been Kreacher. I am afraid I've always taken his company for granted before, but he's absolutely fantastic if you're actually nice to the little bugger. Besides, there's no point in really being mean to him, is there? I mean, yeah, he's a house-elf, but he takes care of our family. Some people just can't appreciate that.

I did manage to make it out to Diagon Alley the other day. I've bought a new broomstick. My old one was lagging a little and made it harder to dive after the Snitch in the last few games of the season and I don't want the same thing to happen next term. We're going to crush Gryffindor this year, I just know it.

Irregardless of whatever I might say about Hogwarts, it is equally dull at home. My mother has been forcing me to play the piano for hours on a daily basis. She has yet to explain why this is so necessary. In fact, I didn't even know we had a piano until a week or so ago. Where had she been hiding the thing? Why can't a house-elf play? I'm so glad I am around for her entertainment. I think she's got a bit off her rocker, if you ask me. But she's still my mother.

My birthday is coming up in about a week's time. I'll be 16. Oddly, I don't really care all that much. Sixteen won't be any different than fifteen, I'm sure. Sixth year at Hogwarts will probably be the same as fifth with the exception of OWLs. Same old people, same old classes.

Now that they're all over, OWLs weren't half as difficult as everybody said. I suppose they work people up just so they get some revising done and don't forget everything. We'll see how it all went sometime next month though.

I haven't decided on any specific plans for the holiday at this point. I was thinking I'd perhaps go to Italy for a spell if I can manage to get away from my parents. I would imagine that my mother will be lording over me until my OWL results come in. So I suppose any happiness this summer will come from that owl. Until then, perhaps I'll catch up on some reading in the library at home.

All said and done, however, I am quite glad that this term is over. It has been boring and never ending and there's quite a bit of news going on outside the school that I wish to catch up on. I could get a subscription to The Daily Prophet, but why bother when I can read my parents' copy at home?

People need to stop thinking it's so incredibly amusing to harass me all of the time. It really isn't. It seems I can't go anywhere without people taking all these liberties as far as talking to me. I don't talk to these people. I don't care what you have to say, it's that simple. I don't care if you think I'm dull or boring. I don't care if you're under the incorrect assumption that I have no range of emotions. I just don't find it necessary to flaunt what I'm feeling or thinking in front of people who have no business knowing.

I'm just thankful this nightmare of a year is nearly over. OWLs begin on Monday and while I've even sunk so low as to study for them, I'm looking forward to them. I think I'm ready and I'm tired of all the tension in the air amongst the fifth years all over the school. And I'm sick of the library. Especially when I find my br- Sirius sleeping in there as if he was camping amongst the transfiguration texts. Hoping to catch his little boy, no doubt. I wish they'd take it elsewhere. People are there to study, not to become nauseated.

Sometimes I wonder if I'm truly as horrible as people seem to think I am. And then I wonder that, if I am, is it a good or bad thing? I mean, I'm almost sixteen years old. How horrible can people think I am? What terrible evil can I have done? According to some who happen to actually be related to me, nothing could be worse than not agreeing with them. It makes me a horrible person to not share their point of view. Not only that, but I happen to agree with an opposing opinion. I simply must be the worst of the worst and must therefore be lectured at upon sight. This person is a coward and a hypocrite. They claim to have righteous opinions and actions, but they hide behind their family name as much as the rest of us do. If you're really so much cleverer, perhaps you should do as Sirius did and get yourself kicked out of the family instead of hiding behind it. Just a suggestion.

P.S. I hold grudges and I happened to like those robes.

I have to hand it to the Gryffindors. They seem to be handling their total, utter defeat at Quidditch fairly well. I suppose they're used to losing at this point. There have been, however, a large amount of "traps" strategically placed throughout the castle. I can only imagine who could be responsible for those. A bunch of little first years seem to get themselves into a bit of trouble with them. They keep expecting help to get out but it's their own fault for being stupid enough to not watch where they're going in this castle. The year is almost over, they should know better by now.

OWLs are coming in in a few weeks as I'm sure everyone knows by now. At least as I'm sure every fifth year knows by now. Finding a spot in the library to do a bit of revision is almost impossible and that mental librarian acts as if someone is trying to steal her children from her when they want to revise elsewhere. Not that I have to do all that much revision. I just figured I should brush up on a few things before I have to take these tests. Otherwise Mother might disown me as she has my brother. I have to say though, revision has been a lot easier without that red headed Gryffindor and that Dorcas girl showing up every time I turn a corner.

Well, Slytherin won the Quidditch cup this year. I'm sure those sodding Gryffindors are still in their dormitories writing home to their mummies about how they've let their house down. The game was good enough, I suppose. And they did catch the Snitch, but what's catching the Snitch if the other team is up by so many points? We won on pure talent (at least as far as our chasers, keeper, and beaters. Our Seeker is a git.) and that's just something Gryffindor doesn't have, I suppose.

Otherwise, nothing new. That girl has been harassing me again, but I shunted her off on that friend of my ex-brother's the other day and I suppose he handled her well enough as he was still alive and I assume she is as well... Somewhere.

The term is winding down (at long last) and I'm finding myself looking forward to OWLs more and more. It'll be nice to finally get the damn things over with. I'm tired of all the studying, all the people whining in the library about how they've gone stupid (most of them were to begin with) and everyone being worked up about this nonsense. In the meantime I've been doing moderate revision just to refresh everything we learned a few years ago, but for the most part I don't see these tests as a problem. My mother, however, feels that she should be owling me every other day to tell me how getting less than satisfactory marks will bring shame upon me and my family and how even Sirius did well. Blah, blah, blah. She doesn't think I know this? It's more irritating than anything else. Sometimes I really wish that my father would be able to make her less... overbearing.

52 .  
There's a spot by the lake that is a relatively good distance from the castle. You can still see the doors the entrance hall, but you wouldn't be able to hear anyone beckoning you from them. There's a shade tree nearby and the faint sound of mewing can be heard near the water. People need to stay away from this place. It's MINE. I've been going there on my own for years now and all of the sudden the entire bloody school is showing up! Including my brother, who I can't help but think was dropping subtle hints about his birthday.
