Arrghh...I'm bored and no one's updating! But it's no one's fault, for it's a busy time of the year and you all have your own lives to deal with.
But anyway, tomorrow's my birthday! YAY! Or nay, I'm not sure. Birthdays always give me a little bit of the creeps. I feel like it's pointless to have a day devoted to myself when I feel like I don't deserve it. That it's creepy to recieve presents from all these people, when they aren't getting anything at all. I'm trying to think logically, to realize that people get things in return on their own birthdays, that they all have a day to celebrate themselves. But still, it feels a little weird to me.
And I know it will feel even weirder starting tomorrow when I'll be saying "I'm 17" for a whole year. I mean, that's "of age" in the wizarding world. If I was there I would be able to Apparate, get a job, compete in the Triwizard Championship, use magic outside of school, etc., etc. I would also be in my final year at Hogwarts.
I know, I'm obsessed with whatever I'm reading.
But anyway...it's WEIRD. And it's gotten me thinking about the future. Just think, next year I'll be EIGHTEEN! Yikes--I don't even want to think about that!
Anyway, enough freaking out. I'm going to face my birthday and try to have a good time. Freaking out won't help anyone.
Oh yeah, and we watched Jumanji last night. I forgot how funny that movie was.
