For years I had been saying that I was Not gonna go to prom. I don’t really know why, I’ve always been a bit of ‘against the stream’ just for the sake of it (we only have one prom in Sweden and it’s in the finishing year so it’s kind of a big deal). And I was insecure, didn’t know who I would go with and blah blah blah. But a few weeks before prom (I graduated this summer and the prom was right before that) I suddenly felt the urge to go! I wanted to. By then every single girl had already found and bought their dresses as well as fixed a promdate. I hadn’t of course since I wasn’t gonna go. Yay!
Anyhow, I found a dress I’ve been dreaming about for Years,
no I’m not a total girl for that! It is the green dress that Keira Knightley wears in Atonement. I’ve loved that dress ever since but there was No way that I was going to afford it xD Not even the copies I found (which were Ugly as well), none of them were cheaper than like.. 2000 dollars!?
But then – I found it. On the internet. It looked like I wanted it, okay not exactly like the one from the film, but come on? It cost me only a 100 bucks! So I ordered it. The weeks went by, I was getting nervous, where the heck was my dress?? And I hadn’t found a promdate yet either. In my eyes it started to look like a disaster.. Then finally the dress arrived and somehow my aawesome friend Aya managed to fix me a promdate – a girl named Nawal. I was in the end really happy that I went with a girl – so much more relaxed not having to worry about if the other person was hitting on me or not x)
It was a great night and I am really happy that I went 😀
It is really nice to reminisce a bit. You sorta miss school, not only prom, but the studying and learning new things all the time! That’s what I love about school. Of course having to do well on tests and having essays to finish and grades to be good can be stressful, that part – the pressure part, isn’t always so fun. But the other part according to me is wonderful. I love to learn simply 🙂
Be swag people, be swag..
