I know, weird, right? I originally wasn’t going to, but then I thought, I have a boyfriend so it could be fun, also I haven’t seen my friends in a while, plus it’s always nice to dress up for a change. The prom was Friday, June 5 and here I am on the Tuesday scrummaging around. So days before the prom, I contacted the teacher in charge and thankfully she said she could get me a ticket (she said they stopped selling them weeks before and only would give me one because she liked me. See, it pays off to be a good student.) So three days before the prom, I’m rushing to book appointments, get my dress, my boyfriend’s rushing to get his tuxedo, etc. It was very exhausting.
The theme was “Starry Night” which I thought was pretty dumb and boring. Apparently they had a vote for the seniors of what theme they wanted, but since I was never physically in the building, I didn’t get to cast my vote. There were options like “Midnight in Paris”, “Masquerade”, and “Arabian Night”. Any of those would’ve been better than “Starry Night” but I guess it had like two more votes than “Masquerade”. Oh, well. I dealt.
For my boyfriend’s prom years ago, his theme was “Carnival” and they had a fancy hall downtown looking off the river with a light up dance floor and a cotton candy machine. To be honest, I would’ve rather had that.
As for the actual prom, it was okay. Standard. Like I thought it would be. Decent food, pretty crappy decorations, a bunch of pretty dresses, professional photographers and a cool unlimited photo booth with props. Since I was so late, I had to sit with people I wasn’t friends with, but that was fine, there was one kid who I liked there other than my boyfriend. Let’s just be thankful it wasn’t someone I hate. But the awards were all rigged. They were like, “Worst Driver”, “Cutest Couple”, etc. How would you know who’s the worst driver? You would have had to been with them driving, and you would’ve had to be with someone daily to know what they’re most likely to be like. It’s funny because everyone who won an award was either on the prom committee, or was the prom committee’s best friend. R-I-G-G-E-D.
We only stayed for three hours, we left an hour early to get to Baskin-Robbins before it closed. And it was worth it, too. Most people went to a drug filled after party in the middle of a trashy field where people got beat up and stuff for the fun of beating someone up. Hope you guys had fun when the cops came. Anyway, my graduation is tonight so hopefully I can go there again. I shall make it my end tradition for everything high school. In other words, I never have to go back to that torture chamber so let’s devour ourselves in sweet succulent iced cream.
I guess that’s a bit over dramatic considering for the past two years I was never actually in the building. But I just hate school in general so whatever. Man, for a pretty positive person this blog post today is really negative. Okay, let’s think of some positive things about prom now:
- I had a great time with Jacob.
- Everyone looked really nice.
- I got to see my friends.
- I had a lot of fun getting all prettyed up.
- Now it’s time for graduation!
Hope that everyone has a great day/weekend!
