I'm sure we all can go through our memories all the way to 8th grade. I remember mine so vividly because it was my first year attending public school. I had been in Christian school since I was just two because my mom worked there. Public school is very different as you can imagine. I met new friends and played new sports and went through many different experiences. I remember my first day because thats the day I met some of my greatest friends. I was so excited to go on the infamous 8th grade trip to Disney. I was excited for the 8th grade dance and even the 8th grade picnic in the park. Most importantly I was excited for the day of 8th grade graduation and to move on to high school.

I am so sorry little sis that you never got to do those things. We were getting ready for the 8th grade trip as this whole virus came about. It was cancelled. Good for us that we have awesome parents and they decided we would go anyways. You had just bought a dress for the 8th grade dance. You and your friends had decided to ask your parents to rent a limo to show up in style, I am sorry that didn't get to happen. You weren't even close to the 8th grade picnic yet but it would have been a great time for you and your friends. I am sorry that didn't get to happen.

I am also so very sorry that some of the people you held so dear to yourself in middle school will never be so close again. Like me you will go to a high school where not many of the people you were around in middle school will go. It will be sad at first but you will adjust. You will make new friends I have no doubt. Make sure to hold those old memories close to your heart though because those are the days. I hope you are thankful for what you did get to experience in middle school and are excited for what is to come in your future.

I hope you know you can always come to me with any questions or concerns you have about high school. I have been through what you are about to experience. I would love to help you with every problem you have and I will support you in any way.

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).

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.

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.

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.
