         As the school year comes to an end, I am going to be writing my last blog post. There is only memorial day weekend coming up, followed by a four day week, then another four day week with school ending before 12:00!! Summer is right around the corner and I couldn't be happier. Freshman year has been a long year filled with many interesting memories. Although it has been a good year, I cannot wait to be a sophomore and no longer be the youngest students at Palmetto. I remember my first pep rally this year when I heard all the other grade levels yelling "go home freshmen!" 
         I have met so many new people this year that I will never forget, even people that I went to Middle School with and had never met before. I've also taken many new classes and have started figuring out what classes I'm interested in and what I like doing. I was so nervous before this year started and now that it's ending, I always think about how there was absolutely nothing to be nervous about. I hope everyone had a great year, thank you for reading my blog!!!!

        Recently, Palmetto has been all fights. I guess since the year is winding down, students have felt as if it's okay to do these things but it's really not. Two people got a concussion during the fight and got picked up by an ambulance. It's not only physical fights, there has also been twitter fights that have led to real fights. Maybe it's funny or entertaining to some students but it will not solve ANYTHING! Clearly it hasn't fixed anything but hopefully those were the end of all the fights.
        It's really crazy how all of these things are happening in such a nice neighborhood for such stupid reasons. The students didn't get in trouble since it wasn't in school property. When the police showed up to the fight, they just told the people to go home. They did show up at one persons house that said they were going to bring a gun to school. Palmetto is a great school with great students and great teachers but sometimes the only thing that people hear about is the bad things that happen to the school. People don't ever seem to hear about the good things that are happening like the students who have been getting accepted to some of the best schools in the country from Palmetto. I guess it is what it is, but with only three weeks left students should be happy instead of starting all these fights!!

              After preparing for my interview and making an application, I finally had my yearbook interview. It was very nerve wrecking walking into his classroom and waiting for it to be my turn. I was told to walk into a little closet when they asked me my name and then asked me many questions. Everything was good until I heard the question, "If you were a kitchen utensil, what would you be?" I didn't know how to respond. After all of the questions and looking at my report card, I walked out not really knowing how that went. 
              Lat week, I was home with a fever Thursday and Friday knowing that the yearbook list was going up. I texted my friends to send me it Thursday and they said it wasn't up. Friday it was finally up and I saw my ID at the bottom of the list. I made it. I am now very excited for next year, some of my friend are in it and I am also excited to be part of the school. For me, being part of yearbook isn't just being in another class, it's doing something for the school and meeting all new people.
