I junior prom, my friends would get all
I never went to a single formal dance untill my senior year.
On nights when there was awinter formal or a junior prom, my friends would get all dress up and ready to dance intheir beautiful gowns. While they were dancing with their dates, I was at home watchingT.V. Its not that I had trouble finding a date of my own but just the thought of gettingdressed up and dancing in a dress didnt interest me. One day, a week before Mira Mesassenior prom I decided to go. It was after all my last year in high school and at leastwanted to experience one formal dance.
I was rushed to find a date and dress in suchshort notice. Thankfully for friends and my mom, I was able to find everything I needed.I thought looking for a prom date last minute would be my hardest task, but itwasnt. My friend, Judy, found me a date with her friend name, Mike, which is now myboyfriend because of prom. Like me, he too was looking for a prom date. So there Iwas, I had a date but no dress. So my mom and I went on a shopping trip to Plaza BonitaMall.
We found this store that sold really beautiful gowns for a very cheap price. I think Itried on every single dress in the store and each dress made me feel like a princess. Icouldnt decided on which dress I wanted, I wanted to take all of them home. So finally Ichoose a white and lavender dress. It looked like one of those dresses that Cinderellawould wear to her ball. With the dress picked I moved on to accessories.
With just threemore days till prom, I started to stress out I was worried that I wouldnt have all that Ineeded before prom. I havent bought my shoes and I havent made any appointments formy hair and nails. I called all most every single salon but they were all booked. Then Isaw this one manicure place with a sign that said walk-ins are welcomed. I was relievedto see that there was barely anyone there but panic strike me once again making me think that the reason why nobody was here was because they didnt give good manicures. Thewhole time I was getting my nails done, all I could think about was let it turn out good.
You know what, It did. That same day I bought my shoes with my moms boyfriend andother stuff I needed. I thought everything was going to go up hill from there boy was Iwrong. I still had no one to do my hair and makeup.The day of the prom I was still making phone calls for my hair, finally I gave upand decided just to do it myself. With the help of my mom she got me all ready for my bignight.
My mom did my makeup and curled my hair and put it up. In a couple hours Ilooked like a super star. All ready for the prom, I was ready to dance the night away inthe arms of my date. A little while later, after everything was in its place, Mike came andpicked me up. In his hand was a single, red rose and my corsage of white and lavenderorchids. After chatting with my family we were off to meet up with my friend Judy.
When we got to Judys house we took pictures with our prom dates while they putthe corsage around our wrist. When we were done we set to go to the gorgeous HyattHotel where the prom was located. Outside the hotel, people in their tuxedoes andgowns were gathered around greeting and talking among themselves.
Everyone seemedso happy and excited for this night. Since we were a couple of ours early for the dance wedecided to take our couple pictures with our dates. Soon afterwards we all headed for Top Of The Cove, a restaurant which our datesmade reservations. The restaurant looked exquisite. There was a ravishing view of the LaJolla Beach and the setting was just fabulous. When we sat down at our tables, a waitercame by and started us off with some appetizers that didnt look quit that appetizing. Itlooked like some brown blob that someone just splattered on a plate and put cream cheeseon top of.
I decided not to eat it. After appetizers, the waiter came back and gave ustheir menus. I ordered a kind of pasta with shrip and scallops. My friend Judy ordered salmon and Mike ordered steak.
When our food came we were all starving. Mike and Iate our food and found it very delicious. Judy on the other hand didnt take a single bite out of her order. Why, Because the salmon didnt look cook. We were all laughingbecause she was so hungry but she couldnt take a bite of her food.
When everyone wasdone eating, we asked the waiter to come by and bring us our check. When the checkcame, boy were our dates wide eyed. Our whole meal reached out to be more than twohundred dollars. We all decided we should have just gone to McDonalds, at least therewe would have been satisfied with our food.When dinner was done we headed back to the hotel and took our group pictureand headed inside the hall to dance. The place was crowded with seniors.
So far I washaving the time of my life. I didnt think it would have been this much fun. My date and Idance through out most of the night and got to learn more about each other. The nightwas turning into one memorable event. Next thing I knew the prom was over. I felt likeAfter prom people headed their own separate ways. Some ended going to afterparties or Family Fun Center which was open only for the seniors all night long.
We alldecided to have fun and go to Family Fun Center. When we got there I was to excited tochange into my normal clothes so I just went straight to the go carts in my dress. After afew laps Mike and I directed towards the arcade where we battled each other in all sortsof games. When it came time to leave everyone said their good-byes and designatedProm was the best night of my life. Though it cost so much money just for onenight, it was worth it. I actually had fun dancing in my prom dress and getting to knowmy date, which if it wasnt for this last minute prom date thing, I would have nevergotten to know the person I would be spending the rest of my life with.
I recommend everyone should attend their senior prom because its that one night where everythingBibliography:
