She met a boy and called him Stargazer because instead of poems, he recited the names of constellations. He said the freckles on his arms were roadmaps to the sky, and the bruises that he carried were supernovas in disguise.
October arrived, spreading a damp chill over the grounds and into the castle. Madam Pomfrey, the nurse, was kept busy by a sudden spate of colds among the staff and students.

This weekend is the worst weekend I have ever had so far. The dog peed on my bed at 6:30 this morning so I had to spend my entire morning cleaning the sheets,bed, and comforter. I was stressed out all day because of that. I went to see the Annabelle horror movie with a friend and that made me scared for the rest of the day.

After work, I was too scared to stay home so I went over to my moms house to spend the night and I kept dropping my damn phone on the ground in the dark outside. I am dog sitting this weekend and I have a bunch of school assignments, plus work. I just can’t handle all 3. I felt like dying…
