Spring Break has come and gone as it has left its mark on the students of Forsyth Central. Speaking for myself, I mean this quite literally as my skin has turned a scarlet red with some terrible tan lines. I spent my Spring Break, along with 30 of my closest friends, down in Panama City, Fla. The weather was perfect; 85 degrees and endless sunshine. Every day was a new adventure for us as we rented Mopeds, walked Pier Park, visited amusement parks, experienced the Strip and traveled to other beaches such as Destin and Seaside. The much-needed break brought relaxation and fun as well as an opportunity to experience things not available to us within Forsyth.

Now that the post-Spring Break depression has settled in, school will be over in a blink of an eye. However, there’s still so much excitement left in the year if you’re a Longhorn. Four sports – boys lacrosse, baseball and boys and girls soccer are all in the top two in the region. Most, if not all, are looking to make a run for a state title, not just a playoff berth or region title. Prom at the Fox Theatre in downtown Atlanta is just a few weeks away. Cramming for AP Exams, SLO test and EOC tests. Different clubs will travel to areas, like when DECA goes to Orlando for a week to compete at the international level. This week I couldn’t think of one possible thing to showcase as the Buzz for Lambert, because in all honestly, there’s so much more than I’ve even described above. The next month is the most exciting time to be a Longhorn, and I think everyone can agree with me. Especially for us seniors, graduation is upon us, but there’s so much to enjoy before it’s all over.Alli Prater, North Forsyth

Sitting here writing my Buzz, I feel like I can still hear the waves and feel the sand between my toes. Walking into school Monday morning I was glad to see that everyone got back safe, and not behind bars. I would include stories from everyone’s Spring Break but you readers have all been young once. You can all imagine the great times us high-schoolers encountered, whether it was in Panama City Beach, Mexico, the Bahamas or even the crazy nights here in good ole Forsyth County. With Spring Break in the past, it’s time to buckle down and finish the school year strong. I just wish they would find a cure for senioritis. I hope everyone had a great week soaking up the vitamin D. And as always, Go South!
