Squeaky G and G#

Heya, I'm bringing this problem to the saxes of Musescore because I'm too lazy to make an account for another website and I have a marching band performance on Memorial Day coming up fast. (Just to clarify, this issue is on my tenor.)

So, I've had this problem for my entire time playing saxophone and I've mostly gotten around it with my embouchure, but it's gotten worse. If I try to play G or G#, it squeaks. Quite badly. Just today I noticed that if I kind of focus that squeak, it's actually a really bad palm key Eb, so I was wondering if it was a palm key leak or something else. I did also notice that several of the pads on the palm keys of my (I believe it's a YTS-26? I'll edit the post if it isn't) tenor saxophone were quite a bit out of alignment, especially the high F key, which was several millimeters off center. So, I was wondering if it is a key alignment issue or something else. Any suggestions?

Riddle Game!

Basically, I'm being a copy-cat. Only thing different from the one in RSA and this one, is this is for riddles only. 
So, for those of you who don't know the rules, I will try to explain. There will be 10 riddles per round. If you answer a riddle correctly, you will get a point! You are allowed to guess as many times as you want. The person that has the most points by the end of the round, wins that round! 
Also, only Phia and I will post the riddles. Please, do not try to post your own because I will delete them. If you want to post riddles, you must do it in a different discussion. 
Thank you! 

Really frustrating stories.

So I was in a piano competition, and everybody (like actually everybody) completely messed up the same piece (we were all playing the same piece, and you couldn't even recognize the piece they were playing, like it was that bad. My ears almost burs), and then I performed perfectly, and the judges' comments were saying like "Really great job!" and stuff like that, and then the video of me got passed to different judges who weren't even at the competition, and I was feeling really confident that I would get first place, and the I got 3rd! And there were 3 3rds and 2 2nds!

Am I the only one?

Am I the only one who feels so unsafe at school right now? Like, there is literally no security. Just a couple weeks ago, a kid brought a pellet gun to school. That can still really hurt people, and it's still illegal, even though it's not a "real gun". Some days I'm honestly so scared and I just want to hide in the locker room in dance today because I'm honestly terrified and it seems like I'm the only one who feels this way.
