If I ever fail university or life in general, I am going to be a zoo keeper. Even if it means I'm scooping poop all day while squawking and hooting at birds in an attempt to communicate with my equals. Featherdale Wildlife Park is the closest Australian animal experience you can get in Sydney and is definitely worth the visit.

I upgraded to an iPhone 5 recently so I haven't a case for it yet. Instead, I use a sandwich bag to cushion the fall in case I drop my phone. I was laughed at the entire day but whatever, safety always makes people look ridiculous. Life jackets make you look fat. Safety goggles make you look dorky. Helmets make you look like you have a tumour. Anyway, the point of this is that a goat tried to eat my phone. JUST BECAUSE MY PHONE WAS IN A SANDWICH BAG, IT DOES NOT MAKE IT A SANDWICH.

We crashed Elaine's place after and ate all her food, watched movies and took endless photos of our distorted faces on Photo Booth. Perfect way to end the day.

Wingardium Leviosa

Hottest start to the first day of summer by far. Imagine spending it in a room with hundreds of other people with no air conditioning. Today I went to Hogwarts High Tea, which was held to help fundraise for Starlight Foundation. 50 points to those people who turned up in robes and costumes in this heat.

I tried to dress up as Luna. I made my own spectrespecs, cork necklace, a copy of The Quibbler, radish earrings (thanks to Fiona) and messed up my hair a bit.

There were food, potions, wizarding sweets, duels and we even sat for our O.W.L. exams. (Our group failed miserably. I feel like I should reread all the books now from shame.) We also found all seven horcruxes to defeat Lord Voldemort. We will be famous and there will be history books written about us.
