And speaking of which, sixth years, with the exception of Quintus you're all as about as subtle as Sloper whenever Teagan Moran walks by. Even Trelawney must realise you're up to something.
Sooo, career talks. I don't need a visit to Trelawney to foresee what is going to happen. I'll be given a sternly appraising look over the top of Professor McGonagall's glasses and told that my marks aren't high enough for what I want to do, yet too high for what I don't want to do, and then told to pull my act together and sent on my way with a Ginger Newt or two. Three, if she's especially annoyed with me.
And has anyone else created or come across the concept of a plateau or default mark? That is, what you know you can usually get by not slacking of exactly but just sort of going through the motions of things. For example, I seem to pull an "E" for most subjects, and am currently averaging that for History of Magic. Yet I known than in order to get something higher than my plateau mark, namely, an "O," I'll have to work that much harder and am still not guaranteed success. So it just doesn't seem worth it, you know? Particularly since it is History of Magic.
Susan, I'm so thankful you're talking to me again.

The only language I'm interested in learning is Italian, and I already know how to count in that. Sorry to buck the trend Seamus and sixth years.
