Come on Disney. I really expected better from you. But then again, I shouldn't be surprised. High School Musical 3 beat them to it.
And yes I did watch HSM3, but not until they aired it on TV...
I must warn you that I'm incredibly bias, so I'm not going to support the counter argument. Disney's done enough for that. Anyway, my opinion is the only one that counts in these blogs. Muahaha.
High school most be pretty sad if it's defined by our Senior Prom. It's NOT the most important night of our lives, and it's NOT what we've been looking forward to since birth. Well, I hope not. So what is high school? Hell. Actually middle school is Hell, high school isn't nearly as bad. But it's not amazing and prom isn't life changing. Unless you get knocked up that night.
OK that got out of hand fast.
I never really liked school dances. They were sweaty, slutty, and overrated. I still went though; apparently I wasn't getting the "high school experience" if I skipped. I will now force you to look at the homecoming pictures of when I was cute and skinny.
|Freshman year. My mom made my dress:)|
|Junior. Finally allowed to have a date. Dress #2 made by Mom.|
Yeah, so as I was saying. I wasn't a fan of school dances, BUT I did have fun at Prom. See, I'm not completely bias. My date was pretty hot also. Too bad I was the one who did the asking...
|Does my jacket look oddly familiar? I wore it Sophomore year also. It fit better back then.|
Movies make prom seem like a big deal. I can't blame it all on the media though. Prom was the main topic of conversation at school the month prior. It drove me crazy. I'm telling you, I'm not a girl. I really don't care what your dress looks like, and I don't want to try and explain what mine looks like to you. The problem is, all the other girls cared, so I would smile and nod as they would explain their dress in great detail.
Girl: "OMG guys, I bought my dress yesterday!! Actually I bought three because I couldn't decide."
Other "normal" girls: "(squeel) That's so EXCITING! What do they look like?"
Girl: "Well, the first one is dark blue, strapless, and kind of gathers around my waist. It also has sequins on the torso and...(By this time I stop listening. They all sound the same.)
Other girls: "Wow that sounds so pretty. I can't wait to see you wear it!!!!!"
Girl: "Thanks. So Kristen, what does your dress look like?"
Me: "It's black and kind of a brassy color. "
Girl: "Oooooo what else?!"
Me: "Uhh, it's long?"
Yeah. I avoided those conversations like the plague. I also realized once I got to Prom that it's a much more formal dance than I thought. I'm pretty sure I was the only person that didn't have my hair done professionally. I didn't even wear more make up than usual. My supply was pretty limited.
|Hey. I did have a fancy braid AND my hair was curled.|
