"We cry together. We laugh together. We play together. We win together, and we lose together. And I'm thankful to share such a great bond.
When the temperature drops all the way down to a freezing twenty three degrees, then we know that it's really starting to be winter. The trees have gone almost completely barren, and the days have been growing shorter and shorter each week. However, fall ins't officially over yet. That's at least not until December 21st, the day of the solstice which beings the winter season. Today, I've decided to rock my own flavor of teen fall fashion for the iconic time of year that is soon coming to a close. As Thanksgiving has well passed and the radios only seem to blast Christmas music, I'd like to take the time to reflect on the past few months that have been quite living changing.
When we learn to appreciate visuals arts, we learn to appreciate the simple beauties of the world. Almost anything can be turned into art with the right amount of ingenuity and creativity. The best thing about it is that it's really up to our own interpretation. No two people share the same view on the same piece and no two pieces are the same. Art is as unique as the creators behind it. Today's New Jersey fashion and December fashion featured individual is Julia, who is rocking an oversized green shirt look, and she is an artist herself. It's a passion that has had an impact on her since she first picked up the pencil. Her artwork acts as medium in which she can express herself like no other. Art has allowed her to showcase her thoughts through her compositions as well as helped her come out of her shell.
Our ethnicity doesn't define who we are, but it is definitely a factor in who we become. As the teenage generation in America, we've come to cherish the fact that where we come from or where our family comes from plays no role in what we can do in our lives. No matter what anyone says, we can do whatever we put our mind to regardless of our background. Yet, our ethnicity is still a part of us to always be grateful for. Today's New Jersey fashion and December fashion individual, Pierre, is sporting an awesome mix of street and outdoor wear and speaks of his own Haitian culture. His parents have been telling him stories of Haiti since he was a little kid, but each time this young man visits the country, he truly gets to live and understand the life his parents spoke about as he was growing up.
What's it like to leave behind everyone you've ever known and go to a school where every face is new to you? Initially, its definitely a very uncomfortable experience, and one that we all may dread. Today's New Jersey fashion and teen fall fashion featured individual, who's rocking a jacket and scarf look, had to live through just that. Her name is Francesca, and she had been attending the same school with the same classmates for years from preschool to eighth grade until her family moved. High school wasn't just a new environment; it was in a completely unfamiliar community. Many of us possibly couldn't imagine walking into a building with over 1,200 faces and not being able to name a single one of them, but as time goes on, these faces seem to be given names and personalities that make this place feel like home.
Today's New Jersey fashion and December fashion featured individual is a young man who is innately happy. Nothing can keep him down, and even if something does, he'll get back up in a heart beat. Those are two characteristics about him that will take him far into the future, and he's ready to start the next chapter. This young man's name is Mike, and he promised to live a happy life since he godfather died a while back. The most important figures in our lives are often from our family. Usually, we tend to think of our parents, grandparents, or siblings, but today, Mike pays tribute to a fantastic uncle who left this world all too soon. People can be taken away from us when we least expect it.
