Classes have been going well. Everyone seems to be in the swing of things. I think it'd be nice to get the DADA group moving again, the participation over the summer was very good, and they seemed to be making good progress.

I kind of miss the fieldwork, but the kids are good, and the work is fun. I can't complain too much. Everyone's getting excited about the ball coming up, I've perfected the self-transfiguration for the evening and I'm rather pleased with it. Just a few facial tweaks and such left to do.

My first day as an official Hogwarts teacher.... I need a stiff drink. The students were generally enthusiastic, the two first year classes I had were thrilled, but the older years just looked at me like I was insane. The Slytherins most so. I fear Snape's been telling them things.

It's really weird being back at Hogwarts. And dealing with the students as a teacher. It's hard to tell when you should say something and when its best not to. Some of them are quite the little brats, and I don't remember being bratty. Was I? *sigh*

Remus looks as usual. Full moon tommorrow. I dunno if I dare risk changing and joining him for the evening.

The whole of the school has spring fever. The professors even! It's unbelievable.

I got my wireless to channel to play 93FM! *does a little dance*

I'm off to see if I can get 104.9!

Remus spoke this afternoon as the guest speaker- about werewolves. It was rather interesting- I learned more in attending than I have from being his friend for a year or so. He doesn't really talk about it- unless its the day after and he's out cold and can't get out of bed. It was pretty interesting to hear about- he spoke about life as a werewolf- the treatment you can expect to recieve, as well as the registration process and how it affects the human. He talked about the pack mentality, what it means to be a lone wolf, as well as physical aspects, and the properties and effects of wolfsbane. It was heartbreaking.

I was suddenly very grateful to Snape though, for making wolfsbane. He must be a good man deep down somewhere.

Speaking of Snape he's taking off on Friday, I'm unsure what that means for the Dueling Club- he hasn't asked me to take over for the day, where he's going, why he's leaving now, and neither has he cancelled for Friday. I'm a bit at a loss.

Yesterday evening was Harry's birthday party in the Great Hall. It was well attended and it was nice to sit and watch the children forget about their worries about the war for a while. To forget about them as well. I even did myself up for the occasion- brownish red hair, a little longer than I really like, but then there wasn't any need to be terribly practical. We had a very enjoyable time, and Harry looked like he had a wonderful time. All the children did really, though the few Slytherins that came stayed on their own. Remus seemed to have fun as well. He left this morning to return to the house. I really hope Harry liked my present- I thought he might see himself in it. I enclosed along with it a picture of Lily I had, and a muggle Three Muskateers- they're my favorites- I rather think everyone likes them, though. I signed Rem's name on them- felt sorta nice, even though it doesn't really mean anything. *sigh*

Classes are going well, and I can't say they aren't learning- some of the students are excellent duelers already- despite last year's ban on actually using spells. Snape stalks them like the bat he can be, but he seemed impressed- hard to tell, but there you are.

Well, I'm settling in at Hogwarts, surely but slowly. I've nearly unpacked everything- I made a real mess of most of the things I brought with that packing spell. Sure it all fit- but I seriously doubt even the house-elves can get some of these wrinkles out.

Note to Self- practice packing spell, as well as folding.

I submitted my syllabus to Prof. Dumbledore, as well as Prof. McGonagall, both of which laughed at me, and told me to call them by their first names. I.... That'll take work anyway.

Snape pisses me right off- he was kind enough to help me get Rem up to Madam Pomfrey this morning. He's a right mess. Not to insult Snape's skills or anything but that potion hasn't worked for shite the last two months. Of course Madam will have him back in a piece or two in a few more hours, and a few days rest and he'll be fine but at the same time... its very disconcerting.

Remus is the office for the night, door sealed, and warded, and its an agonizing night of drifint off, waiting to pick him up off the floor in the morning. He's been a right mess since his friend died. I can't say I've been peachykeen, but he's not really even running on a single cylinder. I know he's mourning- deeply- for his packmates, and things are just - compounded now. Last month he nearly tore himself to shreds- Wolfsbane or not. I thought about going in there- but I just don't know how the wolf would respond right now to a strange female presence.

Snape and I are already off to a wonderful start. -sarcasm drippage- I think my very existence as a human offends him, I swear.

Bedtime. I'm exhausted.
