stirring things up

In the past few weeks I have completely rewritten the old and outdated lesson plans for the Defence classes. Granted, there are MoM regulations and general academia overviews I have to stick to, but other than that I've revamped the whole thing. It's a bit more practical than it's been before, a bit more up to date with the times.

Everyone knows you're less likely to run into a vampire than, say, a Dark Lord and a bunch of his cronies in masks.

I don't know why people are so afraid of acknowledging what already exists. Hopefully I can make an itty bitty dent of a difference when it comes to teaching kids like people instead of subhuman, oblivious, moronic brick walls. I'm sure we can all remember when we were precocious 11-year-olds who knew a bit too much for our own good.

I think kids can handle the truth. It's not like it's such a secret war anymore.

Busy busy busy! Back in Hogwarts, not that any of you really care. I've got half of my stuff still in their boxes though, because I'm lazy and can't be bothered to put my shirts into my wardrobe. I'm living out of these cardboard containers. I think I'm going to draw flowers on them and just say they're the latest furniture craze out of Sweden.

a much needed update

((Lo! Am back from my trip! If someone needed to talk to Dorcas/needed some interaction from her, just let me know. I might have forgotten in the update.))

Ladies and Gentlemen, do you remember a time when these scrolls used to be more of an open community than anything else? Back when we were young and foolish and at school, of course, and before things like getting jobs and having babies and waging wars. I'll be the first to admit I miss that kind of openness between everyone.
