My Greatest Friend My best friend, my most memorable friend, and the most interesting “friend” has all been traced to the same person. This grand honor belongs to none other than the one and only Phyllis Law. She has this queer and awesome ability to lighten any mood and was never seen to be disheartened. Her mind was always operating and working, not on superficial tasks, but on a grand story of her life. Despite her somehow contradictory mood and personalities, she is able to penetrate deeply into the hearts of those around her and create friendships one would not expect to be born. Jokes and various tidbits of stories around the lunch table each day during elementary and middle school was enough for everyone gathered around to feel a sense …show more content…
Phyllis and I worked together to artificially create weathering and erosion. What was supposed to be an informational video about science, Phyllis somehow transformed into a talk show about weathering and erosion. She inserted some very bad puns in the middle of serious information. She interviewed other students about their opinion on certain matters, which included their thoughts on the importance of erosion.

When I was accepted into Troy High School, I did not know what to think of it. On the one hand, my mom would want me to challenge myself through harder curriculum. On the other hand, I would like to have stayed with my childhood friends. Eventually, my mom, quite forcefully, sent me to Troy. However, I don’t regret going to Troy High School. After all, I am still able to communicate with her, though not face to face. Throughout the last year, I think I was only able to see her about three times.
