05:29 pm: *Blinks* I know I shouldn't complain, consittering everyone else's problems, but this is my journal, damnit! So I am going to put whatever the hell I like to.

Well...

My letter certainly didn't go well. Besides the fact that the howler I got blew up in my face infront of Marietta and everyone...

This is what the howler said, I remember perfectly.

KATELYN BELL!

You disgrace! I didn't put in all those extra hours and coins from my purse for you to not go into profesional Quidditch; you want to be a teacher for flying? That's putting all my sacrifices to waste! All for nothing, is that what you want?! Don't bother 'hi Da-ing!' me when the terms over, I can't believe you!


I can't believe he's not proud. I worked my way to get to be the assitant of Hooch, and now her co-worker, or at least in a few months. Wonder why Da's so pissed..

I need to quit the angst--sorry Sylvie and Padma for carrying on over dumb things.

Current Mood: shockedshocked

(gah, sorry 'bout all the R ratings)

Nah, s'fine. I know this sounds heartless, but it felt nice to not have all eyes on me for once. Or something.

Sorry to hear about your Dad being unreasonable. I could write him and tell him that's nothing to be upset about and at least you're alive and safe and don't have fucking Death Eaters after you...I'd better cross that out.

Hope everything works out for you. It needs to work out for someone.

I feel bad and I hate it. If what he said didn't remind me so much of Mum two months ago when she found out...gah!

Parents...can be funny things sometimes. You know they have your best interests in mind - they need to, but sometimes I think they don't always go about it the right way and you end up even more hurt in the process even if you deserve it. It's got to be hard for them when you don't live up to their expectations, but sometimes you just can't.

Merlin, thinking about this is frankly scaring me! I'm going to be a rotten mother...and thinking about that word in relation to me is even scarier!

The thing about parents, as a wise person once told me, is that they always come around. They have to, that's why they're parents.

All right, Marietta, now you can stop feeling bad about this. She doesn't even like you! There's no reason to be feeling sympathetic at all!

I guess so, it's just hard to except it. I mean, Da always was there coaching me, so it's sort of like living down on him.

Um, thanks, Marietta..

There's no worse feeling than disappointing your parents. Especially when it's something that means so much to them. And it's hard for them to accept that you can't follow in the path they've chosen for you, and it's hard for you to accept that you're really just a failure. But then somehow you work it out. Because that's all you can do.

Er, sure.

Talk about living vicariously through a child. Your dad needs to start worrying about his own life, or he'll be sorry he didn't come around sooner.

*Pair of big sneezes makes the last part a bit harder to read.*

Ugh, God damn I don't need this. Anyway, good luck with him.

Don't worry about it. I didn't even hear the Howler, I'm still in the Infirmary. Not 'stable' my arse... Although, I was threatening to kill Lestrange and Casal earlier. But I don't think that's me being unstable so much as revenge-driven. Umm, I'm crossing that out.

I'm sure your father will come round- you've worked so hard to get that job.

Of course, I'd love that! It'd be great to see you.

And no problem.

I'm sure he'll come round, Katie. Besides, it's not like he can control your life- if you want to stay and work here, he can't stop you. And at least it's a stable job, not like being a professional player when if you have one injury you can be finished forever. It's a proper living- he should be proud, not angry.

Thanks, Harry, it means alot. I know I shouldn't get upset over things, Da's prob'ly just a teen-bit overbearing, but it's easy to feel like I'm letting him down. It's like how I feel bad when we lose the game, I play for him...or how I wonder 'bout Mum. You know?

Yeah, I know what that feels like. I really think he'll come round, though. I don't know him but if he's your dad then he must be a decent person, and if you explain to him face-to-face how important this job is to you, I'm sure he'll see your point of view. I mean, how could you turn this job down? It's paid, and you get to stay at this place forever and torture teach kids. What more could you ever want? *grins*
