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.

The community does that, I've found. Usually at times when the only reason you are ignoring it is because you're buried in work, so you have my sympathies.


... Ah, Lily, not to put too fine a point on it, but I don't think your lock worked as well as it ought to have done.

Thank you, Arthur. I hope after this, it will allow me to ignore it for a while longer.


You can see it too? Oh, Merlin... How could this possibly get any worse?

One could at least hope it'd have the decency to let you take your exams in peace. Heaven knows how important they are.


It may be scant comfort, but at least you can be sure that the lad in question can't see it.

I wouldn't be nearly as upset if it had just waited another month.


You have an excellent point.

That's Sod's Law for you.


I do come up with them on occasion. Regardless, I'm glad that you're happy with the decision anyway.

I think it was a few months coming, to be honest.

Ever since Harry asked me why I was going out with someone I didn't love around the holidays, I think what he said was stuck in the back of my mind. A couple months ago, I started seeing his faults, the parts of him I had ignored for so long. The parts of him that I didn't quite like. Last month I felt us growing distant, so perhaps that's what brought out his clinging side.

...Was I looking too deeply into things?

It's difficult to say, really. Relationships are complicated at the best of times, but even so, often it's the case that you honestly don't notice someone's faults until someone else does something to make it so.
