It’s okay to be single…at Prom

Formals or Proms as they are called in Australia are an interesting time in a young persons life. No matter what year of schooling that they may be in. There is SO much pressure to have the perfect “dance”. The perfect dress, the perfect “ride”…and of course the perfect date…But do you NEED to even have a date?

I went to both of my senior formal/proms without a date and I ended up having the most fun. Here’s my list of reasons why:

  • I didn’t have to worry about my date “looking” at other girls. Apparently that was a big issue at both of them. Especially for my best friend whose then boyfriend got depressed over how his gorgeous his ex looked (they subsequently got back together a couple of week later and now my best friend has gotten rid of all those photos).
  • I could dance to any song that I wanted too. Without having someone else sulk.
  • All the slow couple dances song, I just ate my food and most of the guys either complained the whole time, or just didn’t dance anyways.
  • I still got to take photos with everybody and actually missed a group photo because I was dancing having a lot of fun! Funnily enough all the “couples” had nothing else too do.
  • The only couples that actually seemed to have any fun were the ones that had been together for a while. In fact, at both my Formals the most happier couples had been together over both the Year 11 and Year 12 Formals consecutively.
  • I didn’t have to “colour match” with anyone else either, I could wear whatever colour I wanted, and whatever style of dress too!

Share Your World … Week 52

Share Your World

Wow! So the last of “Share Your World” … What a ride! Who knows what I’ll be doing next year! SO let’s finish this one with a BANG! =D

Tell how you are feeling today in the form of a weather report. (For example, partly cloudy, sunny with a chance for showers, etc.) 

I actually writing this on the Tuesday 29th, but it wont be posted until Thursday the 31st (Happy New Year). However, the whole week is supposed to be really the same (somewhere around mid 30 Celsius … High 80 – early 90 Fahrenheit). So it should actually be nicely warm all this week.

What is most memorable about your high school years?

I would have to say that it was the final year of High School for me (and not because it was the last year either). I wasn’t “popular”, but I wasn’t “geeky” either. My little group could pretty much sit where ever we wanted because were kind of cool with everyone. Down Under our Wendys (Australia) sells Hot Dogs and not burgers and every Friday lunch time my girlfriends and I would always get a “Cheesy Dog” (pretty much a Hot Dog with cheese, instead of just sauce). Every now and then I still get them,lol.

Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewerly?

Knowing me, I probably did, but I can’t honestly remember if I did or not.

Complete this sentence:  I like watching…

Ustream Djuma (live stream) in the morning, I usually have that on in the morning, it’s extremely soothing and very meditative, just some sounds of very early African sounds. Also, whenever I can, I like to watch Ustream Wild Earth Safari’s, they are only twice a day for three hours each, but it’s amazing!
