One word. Wow.
I just watched the movie “Prom” and it was good. Not in the this-movie-is-definitely-gonna-win-awards or the this-movie-made-me-cry-and-change-my-life kind of way. It was simple but fun. The kind of movie that you’ll watch once in a while to give yourself a break from your life.
Prom in my school back in high school was never like this. We have two prom, the junior and the senior. Ours is like a normal event wherein hundreds (or even thousands) of students gather inside a big gym to dance. It means no food, no corsage, no tux, no fancy dresses and of course no dates.
Yes it was pretty much boring considering dancing in the middle of the basketball court which the student council transformed into a dance floor with people you never met or saw once inside the school.
I may sound bitter about this but it is true. I went to our Junior Prom with my friends just because my bloody (pardon me) adviser threaten us just so we can wear a dress and be there. I never really enjoyed it which is the reason why I didn’t went to my Senior Prom.
I guess I never really missed out something great. Somehow (like every other girl) I wish that there could be a night like it. A night wherein some guy asks you to be his date. A night wherein you fix your hair, wear a beautiful dress and put on some makeup and when you look at yourself in the mirror you feel so beautiful. A night where you and your friends will go in the middle of the dance floor and dance like crazy without caring what other people might think. A memorable night.
I know for a fact that that may never happen to me since I am now studying in college. I never had the perfect dress, a date or even a photo of prom. I guess I missed something great and so memorable. I missed the moment where I can feel like a star and not the usual by-stander.
College really is different (especially now that I am a sophomore) but deep inside I’m still wishing that I could be a part of a night like a prom. I really wish I could. I’m keeping my fingers cross.
