Missing My Friends + Divergent!!!!

I really like my second and fifth period classes a lot more better than my first and fourth period classes. I just realized that. Really, I'm serious. I suppose this thought came up when I was getting ready for bed, because there are only FIVE weeks left until the end of the school year.
     Time sure flies by pretty fast! Just several months ago, on the very first day of middle school, I was shaking nervously because I didn't know what to expect from middle school, whether it was as hard as it portrays in the books, with the lockers impossible to open, tainted with horrible school lunches and last year's gym clothes and the drama (which, some of this is true). Now, I'm the confident girl who is ready to take on the challenges of next school year.
     But back on topic. As I was saying, I like my second and fifth period classes more than my first and fourth period classes. Why is that?
      Here's some background about my school and how they set us up. We're on a team, which I probably have mentioned before in my previous posts. They set us up into teams mainly about how smart we are, although there is a mix in different teams, like mine. We do the same field trips together and mainly have all the same teachers for the core classes (Geography, English, Math and Science), you get the idea.
     I have the same group of people I have in first period (Algebra) and fourth period (Language Arts). In second period (Science) and fifth period (Geography) I have another group of kids. Now, I'm on the team where they mainly place all of the people with high marks on finals and are gifted.
     Both of these groups, first off, we're really ambitious and high (and over!) achievers.
     Here's the difference between the two, though. The group I have and see in first and fifth period are very similar to one another. Their personalities are diverse, in a way, but at the same time, there are a LOT of similarities from their backgrounds and what they had to go through, which can be good. That means they can get along easily. It also seems quiet and everyone's really focused.
     In the second and fifth period group that I have, we get along easily, but we're all diverse and unique. This group can be playful, fun and outgoing, although they know when to get serious for test when they have to. When I'm in the class I'm always super happy.
     I'm going to miss everyone in the second and fifth period group. The song "Daylight" by Maroon 5, I realized, is really based on what I'm going to go through in these last few weeks I have in this school year.
     In January, I thought that I didn't make that many friends, maybe about 10 or so. But last night, it hit me:
     Many of the people in my second and fifth period classes are my friends, even if it didn't seem like it at first.
     And I'm going to miss them a whole lot, for being good friends. (We're all just friends.)
     I'm going to miss my friend who calls me Pika and Pikachu because of my science organism project, who, although taller than me by a good five or six inches, deals with my shortness (although I am average sized for my school's standards) and accepts me for who I am.
     I'm going to miss the guy who introduced me to the second and fifth period's Playful Poking Wars (the second and fifth period group are the only ones who do this) and who dances songs from Just Dance 4 with me the during passing time before fifth period.
    I'm going to miss the guy who gave me a good amount of nicknames this year (yet teases me playfully), and who is just plain awesome.
    I'm going to miss the girl who sticks up for me whenever I get bullied.
    I'm going to miss the guy who sings opera songs in the hallways with me (we sing them horribly) and is an ally with me in the Poking Wars.
    I'm going to miss the girl who both of us try to make faces at each other and try not to laugh.
    I'm going to miss the guy who, although can be a bit competitive, can be really supportive to people and motivates me to strive harder everyday.
    I'm going to miss the girl who, even though she is about nine inches taller than me, helped me spread the news during the egg drop by us shouting across the hallways (we were allowed to do that only on the day of family fun night) and drew smiley faces on the eggs.
    I'm going to miss the guy who I sadly embarrassed because, while I was helping him, was staring at my arm because I had "goosebumps" (they aren't goosebumps, although they look like it) and the intern teacher told him to go and work on his own work and stop arguing with me about my "goosebumps".
     I'm going to miss the guy who hugged a tree because one of the people in my science lab group, while we were outside, was mad and told him to go hug and a tree, and was nice to me during the partner dancing unit. We also talk a lot too.
      These are the people that I am going to miss because of there pure awesomeness. I think I'm going to cry.
      And really, I used to take these guys for granted. Used to, anyways.\ What changed is knowing of the fact that we should never take anything for granted, even the simple things, because we never really know what there true worth is until its gone.

I was feeling really down until I saw this picture:




It is a picture sneak peek from the movie Divergent, which is also the book by Veronica Roth. And THIS BOOKS IS AMAZING! So I can't wait for the movie.
