|Leaving friends, and other contemplations.
||[Aug. 22nd, 1977|10:30 am]
Home again soon, which is very much a shame. I do so enjoy the entertainment around here. Regulus's highly amusing House Elves, Mr Lestrange's tutorials in various aspects of magic that I could never quite pick up from the Hogwarts curriculum, and - of course - darling Rodolphus. We really must take as many walks as possible before I am to leave. But of course, you'll all come and visit whenever you can, yes? I would be absolutely devastated if you didn't.
Then again, the prospect of returning home does have its positive connotations. I miss little Cissa, and even with firechat and owl correspondence I do sorely wish to have proper communications with my family. Poor Father, at last I shall be able to talk with him.
I'm terrified I will be bored out of my mind in the coming year, because obviously I'm not going to return to school, and these days the idea of getting a job just overwhelms me with ennui. Perhaps I shall take up something suitably decorous, like sewing ...Or perhaps Father will allow me to take some kind of duelling class? I can think of many people whose mentoring skills I would be glad to have in the coming times.
After all, the learning does not stop after Hogwarts. That much I have discovered.
