So with prom season rolling around it has me reminiscing…
that magical time every high school senior girl dreams of.
A time where everything has to be perfect
the perfect dress
the perfect shoes
the perfect hair, makeup, shoes, accessories…
this is what makes being a girl so much fun.
(^it’s also what makes it such a pain in the ass, i swear guys have it so easy; a suit or tux and a pair of shoes and boom. done.)
It’s been quite a few years since I was at prom.
5 years to be exact
hold up…it’s been 5 years?
I’m getting old.
Prom is a time to enjoy yourself.
It’s a time to breathe easy and know that graduating high school and moving up in life is just around the corner.
It’s your chance to splurge on a limo
a time to dance around all night long to your favorite overplayed, obnoxious song
a time to cha cha slide…like your life depends on it…
wait, do they still even do that at proms?
or is it all about twerking…
(god help us all ;))
Prom is a time to make memories that will last a lifetime
with friends that will hopefully do the same.
Don’t fret, go with your girls!
Trust me your memory will thank you when you can look back and remember having a blast with friends who still matter
rather then slow dancing with some guy you just went with for the hell of it
or your at the time current or convenient beau.
Never the less prom is a rite of passage
If you have the opportunity to go
take it, you’ll never be here again.
Unless you’re like my brother who got to go to three separate school proms (lucky bastard;))
Anyway I digress.
I know several girls who never went to prom and still to this day regret it.
So find that perfect dress
doll yourself up
and enjoy yourself.
Enjoy this time in your life
because I promise you
it’s over before you know it.
It only comes around once.
Ok now I really sound old.
I can safely say my prom was a blast
and in any case it’s always a great time for top notch photo ops
or for an impromptu photo shoot [see: the several prom posed pics] (my brother is a photographer…)
And nowadays forget rushing to upload your pictures to facebook so you can share them with all your friends.
You guys have instagram
So…Gram them selfies…
I support you.
So here’s to high school classes of 2014
May your prom night be everything you ever dreamed of…
Girls bring your flats for the after party
Be the gentlemen your mothers raised you to be.
From one veteran prom goer to all you freshmen,
I urge you to party.
