That's what it's been for sure!
The YPL meeting was long and pretty detailed.
I'm excited about it, but maybe a tad nervous too. Professor Sinistra talked about wanting to stretch us, and yeah, I think it's going to be well challenging for everybody. And I don't know about anyone else, but I'm definitely going to be checking my warming charms and making sure they're ace. Dornie in the winter is going to be cold.
All this is part of what makes it exciting of course--if it were too easy for us, it'd be dull!
Then there was the mixer after--it was really quite fun, although sometimes social things that are organised by adults, even super-nice ones like Professor Sinistra, can be a bit awkward at first.
I really enjoyed getting to know some of the Beauxbatons and Durmstrang students a little more; some of the Durmstrang boys especially have been very quiet in lessons and it was nice to see them open up a bit more.
I do wish more of my friends from Hufflepuff could have attended as well, but I understand that it would have defeated the purpose to have too many people from any one House. Maybe we'll have more things like this later in the term.
I know that some of them have been coming to YPL, but it would be nice to have some other kinds of events that our guests could attend. I talked a bit to Cedric, who was there helping to host, and he said something about organising pick-up Quidditch for anyone who wants to play, which would be pretty wizard!
I'd be well intimidated, playing with Krum, but I expect he'd probably enjoy the sort of match where everyone's just out to have a good time, as much as anyone else would.
