CHRM-101 — Journal: Lesson 3
There are so many properties and intricacies of a wand — just how did Mr. Ollivander become so knowledgeable about wands? It’s so admirable that he has acquired that level of expertise. How long must it have taken him, I wonder.
The Reparo spell we were introduced to in class today is going to be so useful, I just know it! Is this how it is in the magical realm — for tasks to be done so easily? It would save
us me so much time and effort. I will be able to focus much more of my time on magic and learning more about this amazing world!
The other spell that we were taught in class today — Alohomora — has me a little worried though. What point is there in having locks if every witch and wizard is able to unlock them with a simple charm? I’m going to keep a closer watch on my stuff in the dormitory from now on.
Although Alohomora won’t be as useful to me (I’m a Ravenclaw anyway, unlike those Gryffindors and Slytherins who’d very likely go round sticking their noses in places where they’re not supposed to be), Reparo definitely will be. Professor Virneburg ended the class by saying that these simple spells can backfire, but she didn’t say how. I’ll have to be careful when practising these new charms.
