So for this issue of Palmer Grove I am writing an article on my feelings about graduating this June. Writing this article is really strange to me because it is making me actually think about all of the things that will change when I move out and start college in the fall. I started to realize these impending changes when my already graduated friends wanted to hang out on school nights. The idea of being out until two in the morning on week nights is a freedom I am looking forward to, however work the next morning is something I am dreading. I think the biggest thing I will miss about high school is the lack of responsibility. Graduating high school means I'll have a stack of bills and a ramen noodle diet. Ramen noodles are going to get old quick. Now I'm hungry and sad. 

On a completely unrelated topic, I just found out that there is a tiny country 1500 miles off the cost of New Zealand called Nuie. This country is so tiny that it's less than 100 sq. miles. In 2003, it became the first Wi-Fi country, meaning there's free Wi-Fi everywhere you go on the island. Why am I telling you all this? Because they put awesome things on the backs of their coins, like Pokémon and Snoopy from the Peanuts, just because they can. Look it up. It made my day.
