Didn't Go, No Regrets
I never went to either of my proms (junior or senior year). I had no interest in it. A big reason, though I never admitted it to any of my friends, was that I didn't have a date. I didn't want it to be like every other dance, me running around alone watching all of my friends in the arms of their dates, feeling jealous and angry, ugly and alone. The other reason was the dress. I didn't want to spend a ton of money on something I would wear one time and then throw away in the back of my closet. Plus, I don't like to dance in front of people. So it didn't really make any sense for me to go. Why end my already crappy high school experience with another bad memory?, that's what I say!
