  2. I have a feeling that something bad is going to happen ...

      What's up? You okay?

    2. Violet Woods

      @Lisa Knotley it's like I'm like a baby unable to do things.

      @MJ Clarke I think I'm too old for a babysitter. What we need is to be able to do things.

    3. MJ Clarke

      MJ Clarke

      And if you rest, you'll be able to do them sooner rather than later.

      You say you're too old to need a babysitter but you're acting like you need one...

    4. Aspen Clarke

      Aspen Clarke

      No, I don't need one.

  5. Guess I won't be participating in a wheelchair race anytime soon...

  6. I need a break from this house. Either my parents leave or I'll be sleeping under a bridge for a few nights.

      I'd be more than willing to give you a place to stay if you need one, my friend.

      As much as I love my parents, I can't deal with these scented candles anymore.

  7. I sometimes find being around the University and the multiple threads and colours and energies overwhelming. I know there is the Gallery place, but was wondering if there are other quiet venues one can spend some time in between classes.

      Well yeah, it's the whole point of the library is being quiet. 

      You can still make friends at a library, it's the perfect place to meet new people. 

    3. Caroline Tanenbaum

      Caroline Tanenbaum

      Ah. Beats me, then. Sorry.

      Guess it wouldn't hurt too much for you to just wander around town one time or another without aiming at where to go in particular, maybe you come across another neat cafe or two. You never know.

    4. Amaleia Dawnstar

      Amaleia Dawnstar

      I will try the library... I shall simply have to stick to sketching rather than painting in there.

      I have done some wandering, but I usually end up overly distracted and lose track of time... as well as where I am. But it is another fine suggestion.

      Thank you for the responses, they are greatly appreciated.

  8. Can't wait for Summer, just one more month.

      I will actually need to find something to do with myself in the Summer. Always rough!

    4. Olivia Teagarden

      Olivia Teagarden

      I love the warmth, it's so nice to be under the sun. I personally love doing picnics, especially group picnics, just gathering everyone and have fun, play some games. It's amazing. 

  9. Too anyone who knew me. I am so sorry I vanished, I can explain the reasons behind it. But, I am back in the area. I hope everyone is well, I have missed you all so much,

      Not too well, really.

      Merlin's saggy pants! Is there anything I can do? I can still kick people!

      I'm going to send an owl your way. I actually have something too tell you.

  10. At last, my brainchild is ready...

    Just in time for Halloween too!

      @Colette AuclairAh shoot, I forgot! I promised you you'd get to see it before anybody else.

  11. I can finally do whatever I want. My arm is no longer slowing me down. 

    1. Laurie Kempf

      Laurie Kempf

      You can do whatever you want, except blowing yourself up again. You can't do that.

      Well, you can, but I'd rather if you didn't.

      I don't plan on being involved in another explosion anytime soon. 

      Don't worry 

  12. Nancy and Sally are super excited. I wonder what will happen today.

  13. It's probably time I start considering moving out for real...

      @Jo EstradaNo, not really. I guess I'm just a bit tired of living here. Plus I think it would do me some good to wake up in a place where I don't get woken up with something thrown at me 9 out of 10 times.

      @Alex LinHey, not like that! I'm staying in Melbourne, I promise.

      Though it's gonna be a bit rough, everything's crazy expensive around here.

    4. Jo Estrada

      Jo Estrada

      Why would people throw things at you? 

      Never mind I think I know why.

  14. I see the ball shtick is starting to make its rounds. Y'know what? I'm gonna host a movie night at my place that day. Open to anybody who's not going! Will be much more fun than all that crap if ya ask me.

      @Colette AuclairWell today's your lucky day, Senior, as I know of good spots to find them.

  16. It's hot enough to day to hit the beach... In early Spring...

    Well, I'm not gonna complain. Gotta derust for the upcoming season anyway, gotta get some matches in before the nice weather goes away again.

    1. Robin Shaw

      Robin Shaw

      A trip to the beach sounds nice and if you want to play, whatever you will be playing, you should start now. 

    2. Paige Breyman

      Professor Paige Breyman

      Yeah, the sooner the better :) I play beach volleyball. Here's hoping I wasn't the only competitor with the same idea at the end of the day...

    3. Robin Shaw

      Robin Shaw

      Good luck. The beach is probably filled with people. 

  17. ...I'd say I can't believe people are working the 'arsonist' thing into their compliments now, but at this point I'm not sure if I can even be surprised on that front anymore...

      Got to give time for people to find the next big thing.

      I didn't call you Jo-Jo, I called you JoJo.

    4. Robin Shaw

      @Jamie Collins I'll be waiting then.

      @Phoenix Aurora Is not a hard thing to admit, I wonder who doesn't admit to be excited to view such magnificent animal.

      @Brooke OuterbridgeNah, something else! You know I'd never spoil the surprise before it's ready, B. I'll even show you too if you wanted, I promise it will blow your mind. 

      @Colette AuclairHow about at the edge of the Bushlands? It will be safer for us that way.


    3. Brooke Outerbridge

      @Phoenix AuroraWell, in that case. I'm in, whatever that may be.

      @Phoenix AuroraOkay, I'll be waiting for you there. 

  25. A Bitter Defeat

    Lisa Knotley
    Oh, no. It seems covering the animated chairs fiasco made me gloss over something very important! But perhaps it was for the best, such grim news aren't something fun for any party involved and the prank was a much needed distraction... Disaster struck Tallygarunga's Interschool Quidditch Team this past Monday as they traveled to the Greyheme Wizarding College so to face against their own team. Halfway through the match, our lovely Bourke team captain, Aspen Clarke, was hit by a rogue Bludger to the back of the shoulder! From what I've heard the past few days it seems to be quite the nasty injury, not so easily fixed by magic - it's rumored that she's out for several months! Such a shame, as she had just signed to play for Melbourne Manticore for the next Australian Quidditch League season. I can't even begin to imagine how the girl must be feeling! It wasn't the only injury, however, as the Interschool team captain, Lisa Knotley, was clipped on the head by the very same Bludger. Greyheme must have one top notch Beater (or two)! The girl fell unconscious and it's come to my knowledge that she was put in an induced coma for treatment, although her condition is nowhere near as serious. She should be waking up soon! That's the reason why she's missing classes, if you're wondering! It goes without saying that, after the loss of two of the best players to ever grace our team, Tallygarunga eventually had to eat a loss to Greyheme. Humiliating indeed, yet I hope for both captains' speedy recovery, and so should you! Perhaps I should send in a bouquet for well wishes...
  26. Who even needs chairs or tables to run a class? Kudos to the prankster though, that's a good one!

  27. It's funny how everyone's chairs are just running around and the ones in my classroom are perfectly still.
