My 13th birthday was November 17th and I didn't really do anything special. I had to go to school and that totally sucked. Not to mention, with this pandemic, there wasn't very much I could really do. The bright side was that I received many monetary gifts! That made me very happy. I got a couple of outfits and I was very grateful for my friends and for my family for celebrating my birth. I'm now officially a teenager and I hope to be able to celebrate many future birthdays without a pandemic.
