CHRM-101 — Journal: Lesson 2
“Squibs”. What an odd name. It’s extremely exciting learning more about this wizarding world. It’s truly eye-opening gaining a wider, more in-depth view of the magical community. I’ve heard of the terms ‘muggles’, ‘muggle-born’, ‘half’-blood’, and ‘pure-blood’, but not ‘squibs’. I suppose prejudice breeds wherever there are people. This is a slight let-down, I must say. Isn’t there some magic to create a sort of Utopia where there’s equality for all?
Professor Virneburg had us experience the ball of energy within each of us in class today—that same “ball of energy” I referred to in my previous journal entry. It was a phenomenal experience feeling it radiate throughout my body, and tears welled up in my eyes involuntarily. I hope none of my classmates nor the professor noticed—that would be rather embarrassing.
I’ve been practising casting Lumos and Nox since we were introduced to them yesterday. It’s getting quite a fair bit easier. And today, I was particularly intrigued by one of the new spells we learnt—Wingardium Leviosa! It isn’t as easy as how Professor Virneburg made it seem to be. More practice is needed!
