Final exams are coming and students are as stressed as ever. Hermione and I have been studying every hour of everyday. I stay up late every night and just study in the common room until... 2:00 a.m.?

"Angelica, how late did you stay up last night?" Katrina asked taking in my messy appearance. "2 a.m. every night" I answered groggily. "That's bad for your health." Laurence warned me. "I can't bear to fail our exams" I yawned. "You're suffering!!!" Katrina slapped the table, some students turned their attention to her but I just kept my eyes on the window staring at it blankly with my eyes half closed. "Not gonna work." I said and yawned again.

During Transfiguration I nearly fell asleep as we were taking lectures...again. Harry looked horrible as me, his eye bags are bigger than mine and his eyes are reddish. "Hermione made us stay up till 4a.m. to study." He said yawning, "I just want to sleep the entire day."

"You're not the only one." I said and my gaze fell to Ron who looked even worse and Hermione who was already suffering but she was still wide awake. How can she do that?!

It's not just the exams we were worried about, it's also on the issue with Snape and the sorcerer's stone. You'd think all this stress is already killing but nooooo! Another thing added to my problems. This is totally the last thing that I need.

It was our free period and Katrina & Laurence insisted I take a nap. I can't say no. As I was headed for our common room, I heard someone call my name. "Angelica! Hey Angelica!"

I turned to see my bro----Harry running towards me."Yeah?"

"We need to go to Hagrid's" he informed me. "Nowwwww?" I groaned but I try not to sound whiny. "Tonight" Harry laughed. "Oh okay, that's a relief." I nodded.

"Where are you heading?"

"Common room. I'm giving in." He laughed again and nodded. "I guess I should too." We bid goodbye and parted ways. Do you really think I'm comfortable around Harry now? Of course......... NOT!

Every time he gets near me my heart beats a thousand a minute and a stupid annoying voice keeps insisting I tell him the truth. I didn't expect that I would have to keep the truth from my own brother!

Sighing, I continued to head for the common room. When I got in, I dragged my feet up the staircases to the dormitories and when I reached my beautiful and comfy bed and fell asleep quickly.


"What the----?!"

I sat straight up with my eyes wide open. I was awaken by the sound of my heart attack-giving alarm clock. I looked at the time it was-------- IT'S 3:45?!?!?!??!?!?!

I slept through 3 subjects!!!!!!!!!! I AM SO HORRIBLY IN TROUBLE! I ran downstairs and grabbed my bag. I got a piece of parchment and wrote some sort of an excuse letter. I quickly ran towards our DADA classroom. When I got there everyone was chattering loudly. I knocked on the door and silence followed. I opened the door and took a peek inside. "Professor Quirrell? I'm so sorry I'm late." I said blushing furiously. "T-t-that's okay m-miss Potter. Any particular r-reason why y-you are l-late?"

I entered and gave him the letter I made. Then he laughed.

"Yes... okay I u-understand. T-take your s-seat" I walked over to my seat with my head hung low. I'm soooooo EMBARRASED

I'll skip what happened for the rest of the day for your sake, it's nothing but boring. But if you count: Snape taking a whole lotta points off Gryffindor and Ravenclaw simply because I didn't turn the ladle clockwise or Harry didn't add the exact measurement of what ever the hell powder, interesting then there you go.
