How Can I Have Balance in My Life?

As-salamu Alaykum, I am a 13-year-old girl. This letter might not make much sense, but I have to release my feelings to someone who can help me, and I found About Islam to be the best site. In July, I went for `umrah. By August, I started reading all my prayers, masha’Allah, five times daily, and I felt like a good Muslim. Being 13 years old, I am at a very tender age of my life, and pondering over hijab and Islam to me is very disturbing for some reason. I know what the right thing is, but due to my circumstances, like studying in a posh school, having a modern family, and living in the best locality, I can't follow Islam in the right way. I want to balance my life between school, family, and Islam, but it's extremely hard. For the first time in my life, during my exams, I read all my prayers and asked Allah for help, but I was so engrossed in them that I forgot to study and ended up with a disappointing result! I took this as a challenge, and I know this is for my betterment, yet it is really depressing! I want to be a good Muslim and manage everything, but it is really hard! I want to do hijab, but my surroundings stop me! It is very frustrating! I need to find a way to make my life easy for me and my family. I stop them from going to many places because I won't be able to perform my prayers or something relating to this. Thus, I have become a problem for them! I’m extremely sad and confused. My school results are dropping and I have started enjoying solitude, crying in prayer, getting depressed, thinking about the Hereafter way too often, and only thinking and linking things with Islam when they benefit me and forgetting about them when they don’t. I hope I get a reply from you so that I can ask other questions and my queries can be solved. Thank you, wa salam.
