I honestly would love nothing more than to destroy this book if it didn't mean I would lose any method of staying in touch with certain people with the community. Over the past two weeks it has been reappearing in my workspace in place of whichever school book I have out. If I leave it off to the side for too long, it bounces off my head until I lock it my bag. And then it always seems to find a way out. I've already spent nearly an hour explaining about this book and the community to Sev. Everyone else seems to think I have a hexed book.

So, in the hope of convincing it to leave me alone while I study for my OWLs, I am writing in it, as it seems to want. The past week's silliness aside, how is everyone? I count myself fortunate to avoid the mess that last virus caused.

Dear me, it's been some time since I last had an entry only in this book. If I figured out the locking mechanism on this correctly, I should be the only one to see this.

A couple weeks back, I broke things off with Mark, my now ex-boyfriend. I guess I just didn't feel the right connection with him, not to mention he's been acting slightly more clingy than normal. My decision was made easier when he started interfering with my time to study and meet up with my friends. I couldn't take it any longer. Not with Prefect duties and the exams to study for. He's a sixth year! He should remember how stressful the months leading up to the OWLs are!

To be honest, it's rather nice being single again. I'd almost forgotten what it's like, since I was with him for nearly a year.

That's too bad about Mark, but I'm glad you did break it off. Especially if he was just stressing you out.

How did you see that?! It was supposed to be private! Did I use the wrong spell for the lock? It seemed simple enough.

Remus, if I can't even enchant this book properly, how am I ever going to pass my OWLs?

Lily, your OWLs and this book are completely different things. And you just have to get the hang of this place. It's not too bad, though, I promise.

How have you been? Sorry I haven't had much of a chance to talk to you. We've both been pretty busy, lately.

I'm not sure how I've been anymore. I've been refreshing my brain on everything we've learned since arriving, doing rounds when assigned, dealing with Mark, and doing all the coursework we get assigned for our current classes. I felt bad turning down Professor Slughorn when he asked if I could make a Slug Club gathering, but he understands my studies come first. To top things off, I've started telling off students who interfere while I try to concentrate on my work.

Honestly, Remus? I could do with a break. The summer holiday can't come soon enough this year.

I definitely hear you on needing a break from school. Granted, I say that now... As soon as I've had a few weeks off to myself, I'll miss it and want to come back again.

I'm sure I'll agree with you once July comes along. I'm sure sixth year will be slightly less stressful, what with maintaining our grades and only the end-of-year exams to worry about.

I don't know. Just the fact that it's sixth year in and of itself is going to have me pretty stressed.

I did say slightly less, though I just know the longer we progress through sixth year, the more stressed I'll get. Especially knowing our NEWTs would be rapidly approaching....

Merlin. Don't remind me. I don't want to think about it, yet.

Sorry, Remus. I think it might be best to keep our thoughts on the current year, and worry about sixth and seventh years later on.

True. We haven't completed fifth yet. Better not worry about any later ones yet.
