Dear Diary,

Callidora is so annoying. She said she was the prettiest Black, when everyone knows it's me! Me, with my silky smooth black hair and sparkling chocolate brown eyes, and her with her matted messy wavy black hair and thin blue eyes. I can't believe we're related, even though I'm related to nearly every pure blood in some way or another.

Anyways, Charms is horrible! I already know half the things, being so smart and all. Daddy says he thinks I should be out of Hogwarts even if I'm yet to pass my O. .

Love,

Dear Diary,

Callidora. Again. Can't we behead her like House Elves? Anyway, my boyfriend, Leo, is soo handsome tonight. I love him. Anyway, time to change diaries before Callidora finds this one. I'll dump this in the rubbish tonight. We can't have her calling me disgraceful again, because that is, of course, a lie. And if it wasn't for my stupid brother and my cousins, I'd be leader of the Blacks. Stupid little boys.

I want to lead the Blacks to glory. But they just don't listen. Their problem, not mine. They just think of me us 'another girl to marry off', when in reality I'm not another girl to marry off, I could lead the Blacks.

Goodbye, you were a nice diary, I am about to throw you out (stupid Callidora peeking into my private stuff),

Love,

Cassiopeia
