High School Dances
Since it seems to be that time of the year where everyone is going to prom, I thought I'd share some of my senior year dance pictures.
It first started out with Homecoming. I went with a close group of friends and we had dinner at my house before we headed to the dance. Let's be honest here, I never really enjoyed high school dances. I always liked the idea of them but actually kind of hated the real thing.
I can't remember much about my senior Homecoming other than it wasn't very exciting. Our high school always has homecoming at a local elementary school and there's just something about a bunch of high schoolers dancing like crazy people in an elementary school gym that doesn't seem quite right.
Skip ahead to senior prom. I was actually very very close to not going. Like I bought my ticket the day before the dance. Jacob wasn't going to be able to go (not that he enjoys that sort of thing anyway), I didn't want to spend the money, and I had gone the year before with a guy friend and not had such a great time. So I ended up going simply because friends convinced me to. Although the dance really wasn't that incredible, I'm so grateful for those friends who pushed me to go because at least I can say that I went to my senior prom, had a great dinner with friends, and did my best at enjoying the night.
What was your senior prom experience like?
