We live in unusual times, and it's a particularly strange time teenager.

Everyone in My Family has celebrated its 15 with a Quinceanera, and I always wanted One . I used dancing to have peeking from behind The Corner , as my Older Sister is dancing for Hers practiced - I loved, since I was little.
" My Friends and I started rehearsals for the traditional opening dance in February. There are 14 of us, seven boys and seven Girls were - and we had choreographed a Broadway-style performance, based on a Fairy Tale . Every Sunday , after Church , we would go to The Park and start with the exercise, so I had my hands full.
I'm not going to lie, when I got my Quinceanera couldn't go any further, I was a little angry at First , But I thought That , if it is so, Because of the coronavirus, Then it is better to wait until it is safe.
I would rather my niece's quinceañera later, as it is now, and no One would have come, or People who are sick. Some of my relatives who are older or not a good immune system - I would not want You to be sick.
now We have moved it to September. I really hope it is only Postponed -until Then - But when It Comes to the worst, and we Can 't keep It Then , I'm going to have to, instead of make it an event for my 16th Birthday . I could be crazy at The Moment , But I will always still think it is better so - it is better That People get sick, or pass away from this.Ariana had to sign a book, and shoes, prepared
I miss The School so much. Online classes are More difficult, Because You Can 't always get the teacher - and-Zoom Can hold strange Because sometimes People are staring at each other. Many of My Friends in school, moving, or changing schools, and I think That "I am not even able to say good-bye, y'all!". I still have the text of it.
The weekend after my Birthday - The Day my niece's quinceañera originally planned - My Mom has surprised me. She told me, I wanted to shoot a photo, so I got dressed and My Sister did my hair and make-up. Then , mom suddenly said she had to go Because she was needed at work.
Then I Heard honking, a whole series of cars - and my mother saw The Car at The Front ! I started to cry. Many of My Friends , all of The Family , And One of my Teachers was a drive-by Birthday parade.
All of them had decorated their cars with balloons or streamers and threw confetti or pulled POPs from the inner of your car.
this evening, we have a lot of the dances, I originally had a sister dance, a mother - daughter dance scheduled for the Quinceanera, a brother-and-sister-dance, and a father-daughter dance. I cried for all the dances, and so was my mother. I was very touched, and thank I have my mother a lot.'We cut out of cardboard DIY-Graduation and garbage carried bags as robes,'
It was certainly a shock. A Graduation is really the final of their entire college experience, and the last month of college is a huge, important part of your life. Not to miss, and it was really demoralizing. It is still very bizarre now officially his statements, and in the "real world" without those last moments.
In the last few weeks On Campus , we were just kind of in The Throes of existential Angst. Then One of My Friends the idea of a mock-Graduation had - it began as a kind of joke, But Then we have More and More to The Point , where we cut out cardboard DIY-Graduation and wore trash bags as gowns.Liam (right) says it "felt like a fitting end for the year"
had to Campus left Two Days before us, we set up our outfits, and made little fake paper diplomas, and walked on the main street of the Campus - the same Way the graduating class usually takes - when blasting Pomp and Circumstance [a song often used in Graduation parties] into a megaphone.
I have an actual degree would be preferred - But I am so glad That we had Our Own little Ceremony - Because it was the kind of art, in its own Way . It was reveling in the craziness of The Moment , and it felt like a fitting end for the year.
The mock-statements, while totally ridiculous and stupid, it was a really beautiful moment, all of us together and work on a project together, One last time.Church '
Lindsay Rebodos, 14, in Illinois. Your Christian confirmation of power Ceremony , where a person has a statement of faith, and confirms the promises in your name, when You were baptized - will be delayed by about a month, and at the end of the Parking lot is happening in your Church ."While things are dark and I Can 't always see what is going to happen, God has a plan for me"
