Dear Journal,

here is an account of my shopping spread yesterday.

I am afraid for our future. Very afraid. So much I have even gone to the expanse of making sure my Gringott vaults was as full as supposed with my own eyes yesterday before going back to Hogwarts. Why? The dunderheads that seem to be constituting the majority of the new working force of course!

We used to be submerged with respect and good manners at one point of our existence and now, nothing of it. It's all going down the loo if you forgive my usage of this awful figure, but it's all it inspires me now. All those nitwits draining the world of its last bastions of decency and genteelness.
