13 Things Girls Who Didn’t Have A Quince Have Definitely Thought

If you didn’t have a quinceañera – like me – you’re probably not too happy about it. But we are not alone and we need to know it’s going to be okay. Here are 13 thoughts shared by every Latina that wanted a quinceañera but never had one:

1. “Well, they don’t look that fun.” ?

Okay, yes, this is a blatant lie but LET US HAVE THIS, PLEASE. We don’t want to think about how it was the greatest night of some young girls’ lives; we want to focus on the possibility that it was awful and someone’s tía caused a scene and fell into the cake.


2. “Quince dresses aren’t that great… Right?”

We’ve all had this thought as we eyed the birthday girl twirling and dancing and looking perfect in her puffy dress. But the truth is some of us WANT to work that giant-technicolor-merengue-realness. MORE TULLE! MORE!


3. “My vals and choreographed dance routine would’ve gone a lot better.”

Not only would we have danced for at least three more hours, but I would’ve flipped twice through the air and through a ring of fire onto a giant ice swan. So there.


 4. “That entrance was weak.”

Our entrance would’ve included at least three more fog machines, a complete dance routine to Jennifer Lopez’s, “Waiting For Tonight,” and ending with a fabulous Dirty Dancing-type jump. No biggie.


5. “What hurts most of all is that I missed out a chance to eat even more cake.

We’re talking cakes made up of fifteen layers and multiple flavors with AT LEAST three drawbridges.


6. “My quince theme would’ve been ah-mah-zing.”

Disney Princess-Virgen de Guadalupe-meets-Venetian masquerade ball. And no one else can copy.


7. “Okay, at least I didn’t have to deal with my dad changing my shoes.”

That’s the one thing from the night I can happily dance away from. Literally.


8. “….But it would’ve been cool to have that father-daughter dance.”

Stomaching the awkward shoe change would’ve been worth it for that tear-jerking father-daughter dance! Any chance to see your papi get emotional in front of familia is a good time; it’s the sweetest thing!


9. “On the plus side, I never had to deal with chambelanes who wanted to be literally anywhere else.”

Just look at all those big smiles.


10. “Good thing I avoided having to make small talk with 25 cousins I’d never see again.”

We can rest easy knowing we’ve avoided the exhausting, “Nice to see you again!” even though we’ve literally never laid eyes on them before. Whoops.


11. “And no quince means no fights over the centerpiece.”

Tía, nooo! Put that knife down!


12. “I guess not having a quince saved a dollar or two.”

$weet.


13. “And, hey. Every day is a celebration anyway.”

This Man Posts A Video Highlighting Mexican ‘Avatar The Last Airbender’ Characters And It’s So Accurate

@nacho_libro_ / TikTok

Who here loves “Avatar The Last Airbender”? It is one show that has been around for so long that the fanbase can only grow. The show is a fantasy ride that will take you to some of the most imaginative places. However, one fan realized something no one else did: some of the characters are Mexicans. Here’s what he found.

Roku

Roku, a.k.a. “El Espiritu,” is one of the Mexicanos rocking it in the Fire Nation. Roku’s memory served as a guiding force for Aang along his long and storied journey. It is like that one compa you have who is always able to help you out of a jam. You never know how he will do it but he always does.

Sokka

You might know Sokka as the defacto leader of the Water Nation for a time. When he was younger, Sokka wanted to join his father in the war. He tried his best and left with all of the men to join the fight. However, he was too young to fight and was sent back but was the oldest male and became the leader of the tribe. Much like that primo we all have who is the oldest of the primos and teaches us everything. Where would we be without that primo?

Zuko

Zuko was born into the royal family of the Fire Nation. The prince abdicated his throne and lived in exile. For years, Zuko tried his best to catch the long-lost Avatar to get back into his kingdom. We all know that one friend that is trying to make up for something. At the end of the day, he is a good dude but he just has some things that he has to work out.

“Avatar the Last Airbender” fans are asking for more.

There are so many more people that can be made into Mexican airbenders. The first three are already a success for the TikTok user with more than 234,000 views. Fans want more and it just seems like the perfect time to create more.

And it wasn’t just the setup.

The TikTok user came through with his joke. Not only was the haircut so on point, he included a bunch of easter eggs. One of them was the América jersey that left some viewers screaming. Watch the video here and enjoy.

Julio Torres Gives Us An Update On What He And His Shapes Have Been Up To In Quarantine

Julio Torres Gives Us An Update On What He And His Shapes Have Been Up To In Quarantine

Paper / YouTube

Julio Torres is one of our favorite comedians. We first learned about him when he started to share his unique comedy on “The Late Show starring Jimmy Fallon.” Torres’s delivery is what gives him comedy that extra punch.

“I am Julio and this is what my shapes and I have been doing during the quarantine.”

Like all of us regular people, Julio Torres has been in quarantine to combat COVID-19. His quarantine included him being stuck with people he thought he knew well. Fortunately, Torres gave a little video to Paper Magazine to let us all know how he is doing in quarantine and what he and his shapes have been up to since the quarantine started.

The one shape that has been doing the most is Krisha.

Yes. That Krisha. According to Torres, she has really gone wild since she was forced into a quarantine. Not in a good or bad way. She is just really doing the most and it is all catching up with her. But don’t worry. Krisha is still filled with confidence. She has an OnlyFans page and is supposed to be donating the proceeds to charity. However, we are still in the dark about the charity.

“Krisha, you know, Krisha, true to her Scorpio nature, has been… I mean, I don’t want to generalize on all Scorpios, but she’s been waking up at around 2 p.m. and then being awake for a little bit,” Torres says. “Then taking a nap. Then waking up again and then taking another nap from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. Then waking up again and going to bed for good at 5 in the morning. She hasn’t been removing her blue contacts lenses the whole time, which is causing her this infection I think. At first we thought that it was something serious but it was just an eye infection caused by her not moving her blue contact lenses which I didn’t even know that she wore till I was quarantined with her.”

To be fair, we all assumed a lot about Krisha when we saw her in the HBO special.

As for her love life, well, let’s just say that Krisha is not where she wants to be. Who would have expected that being in quarantine would be so detrimental to your love life? Seems Krisha might be the only person who didn’t realize that she would be lonelier than normal at this time.

“She has been DM’ing up a storm just like flirting all day, which is great, but then when they don’t respond quickly enough,” Torres says. “I can tell when her suitors are not responding quick enough because she’ll just like throw her phone. Then she’ll look at me and goes, ‘What?!’ So, that’s what Krisha’s been up to.”
