I Spoke To A Class of 2020 Senior From Brentwood High School, A Group Of Kids We've All Got To Feel For

1. Where did you/are you graduating from?

I am graduating from Brentwood High School here in Brentwood, New York. Where we bleed green. Go Indians!

2. What has it been like spending your last semester under quarantine amidst the coronavirus pandemic?

Spending my last semester in quarantine due to the corona pandemic wasn't hard due to the fact my life was like this before. The only problem is the assignments given to us which was work after work and I do better by being taught in person than by video.

3. Of all the things you missed out on because of quarantine, what has been the hardest to accept?

The hardest to accept was not being able to attend some school activities that were given to the seniors.

4. What has been a silver lining?

The thing that has been a silver lining was looking on the bright side of things instead of the negative. This happened for a reason and we've been punished by God due to humankind, misconduct; and after the punishment, good will come.

5. What have you done to make up for some of the graduation traditions you aren't able to do?

I have not done anything to make up for some of the graduation traditions that I'm not eligible to do.

6. What are your next steps, and have they been impacted by coronavirus?

My next steps are to accept it and move on.

7. What is the worst thing someone can say to a Class of 2020 graduate?

The worst thing to say to someone to a class of 2020 is you're "not graduating" or "sucks to be you."

8. What is one piece of advice you would love to give to the class of 2021?

One piece of advice I would give to the class of 2021 is to always look on the brightest side even when things get rough. There is always hope.

9. What about the last few months do you think you'll remember most?

The thing about the last few months that I think I'll remember the most is not being able to go to a restaurant and eat inside.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time. By that, I mean there are so many layers to each and every one of us, and with our physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional selves, we can create real, positive change.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
