Lourdes Leon may just be the most relatable teenager. Well, as relatable as it gets when you're the daughter of Madonna. But like many teenagers her age, the 17-year-old who goes by Lola is a high school graduate and has some charming things to say about the experience on her blog for the Material Girl Collection.
Lola starts by expressing relief that there is no longer an "ominous presence of another year of high school and test taking." We all feel her pain and are excited about her summer with her, but then she reminds us that summer in New York isn't all it's cracked up to be.
Showing a flair for writing, she sets the scene, "New York currently feels like it's inside a fat man's sock. I. E. humid and gross. You know when u get that permanent Sweaty upper lip…type disgusting I know but don’t pretend you don’t know what I'm talking about."
We definitely know what she's talking about! Lourdes then continues to relate with her audience about her final high school experience, "the classic party every American teenager goes to" otherwise known as prom. She partied with her friends all night but knows all about the awkwardness of it all, "awkwardly avoiding teachers because you may or may not have had some champagne and it would be weird to talk to them. Not to the prom dj's who feel the need to play 'please don’t stop the music' (what a prom classic I know they played that at your prom!) 5 times in 3 hours."
We feel her pain again, but it sounds like a recent trip to a music festival made up for that overplayed prom music. But, of course, things can get a little crazy there.
"I think music festivals bring out the animal in you especially if it's a camping festival. Your phone is dead like three hours in and obviously you can’t plug it anywhere."
At the end of her blog, we can all rejoice with her because everyone has problems in high school. "But yay me I made it out of high school alive and well!"
The Detroit Free Press reports that Lourdes will continue her education as a freshman at the University of Michigan this fall.
