I posted a question on here about my prom dress, and on Monday in one of my college classes I heard a few girls discussing their prom. Now I didn't join in the discussion I was just listening in because they were so damn loud and I couldn't believe what they were saying- what they were saying got me like:
They were saying how they couldn't eat because they were so nervous for prom, their nerves got so bad they were considering not going, they booked appointments for hair and makeup...
And then there was me just sat there like:
So how did I get ready? Let me tell you.
#1 - Before Prom
Not gonna lie, I did feel a little nervous and I didn't eat because I wasn't hungry not because of nerves- sometimes I'm not hungry, so I don't eat. And then an hour before prom I ate because I was hungry and my dad insisted I ate😂
I spent most of the time before prom in my pyjamas, chilling, watching TV- not stressing and I didn't once have second thoughts about prom😂
#2 - Hair
So that was my hair for prom. I didn't go all out and get someone to professionally do my hair because I'm too broke for that😂
What I did do was get my hair out of the bun it was in, fire up the straighteners and straighten my hair for bloody ages😂
#3 - Makeup
So the girls in my class were talking about how they were making appointments with makeup artists and stuff- and the girls were really pretty, so I'm sure they slayed with their makeup no doubt BUT...
I hired no makeup artist because again... (read the next line like you'd sing the song "turn down for what")
TOO BROKE FOR THAT😂😂 (you can hate me now)
And I didn't wear any makeup either, because I own none and my friends would have let me borrow theirs- but nah. I didn't want makeup- just went there with the no makeup look ;)
#4 - The Outfit
At my secondary school I heard loads of girls saying they were spending like £100 on a dress.
Now me and one of my friends were talking about what would happen if we asked our parents for that amount of money for a damn dress.
Our parents would slap us and tell us to get a job😂
Many of my friends did get new dressed for like £20-£40, one friend just wore what her sister would have worn if she went to prom, and me?
My parents were willing to buy me a dress, but one day I was digging through some old stuff and I found the dress in the picture. Now I remember it. I got that dress a few years ago, for Eid, but back then it was too big for me and didn't fit me, so my mum put it away for when it would fit me...
And it happened to fit me for prom, and it was a nice dress so, why not?
I found my headband I was wearing too, in a jewellery box.
The shoes I bought new, because I only owned trainers😂And I chose flats because I cannot walk in heels to save, my life.😂
The little purse I bought new for like £7- I think, because again, I only owned backpacks😂
#5 - Transport
So me and my friends looked at a limo... And then we saw the price and we were all like:
And we decided to get parents to drop us off to prom.
My parents didn't drop me off, I got a ride with my friend and her parents and so did a couple of other friends.
She told me she got to my street was like:
"Yeah, I don't know where she lives"😂🤦🏾♀️
Luckily though, I came outside- so we were fine. xD
#6 - Taking Pictures😂
There was a professional photographer and most of us didn't use him or buy from him because he was selling the pictures for like £10-£20 so the majority of us (us being me and my friends) were like: "Nah, screw that- we too broke for that😂"
So we just took pictures on our phones, and we took this massive group picture on "my" phone (it was my dad's phone but he lent it to me because that has a really good camera on it) and one of the group pictures turned out amazing, the other?
The kid taking our picture clicked when we weren't ready and we're all making some kind of ugly face😂
On the upside I got to stand at the front because I'm short😂
#7 - The Music
We had some awesome music.
Single Ladies By Beyonce
We're All In This Together and Breaking Free from High School Musical
A Million Dreams from The Greatest Showman
An Indian song which I don't remember the name to😂
I Wanna Dance With Somebody by Whitney Houston
And I'm sure they had other bops which I just can't recall now- but yeah, the music was dope.
#8 - THE FOOD
Yes, we got pizza at prom. And we got one free drink and a cake which had a picture of everyone in our year group on it! And I bought a huge glass of Pepsi- which I regretted once I got home because I got a headache- but the pain was worth it😂
#9 - The ✌️Dancing✌️😂
So, I took his hand and we danced the night away... Is what I would say if I had a date. But again, nah. People with dates at my school were the minority. Me and my friends went together as the #foreveralone squad which is ironic now I look back at it because some of them have boyfriends now😂
We didn't seriously mean that though, it was just a joke😂
But anyway, we literally all jumped up and down together in a massive crowd screaming our lungs out to the lyrics😂And some of the dudes who didn't have dates decided to jokingly "slow-dance" together and they were amazing😂So cute😂😂
#10 - End Of The Night❤️😓
So for most of prom night we were goofing around and for a short while my best friend got a little emotional and wanted to leave but I didn't let her do that- instead I (jokingly) threatened to beat her with my shoe if she didn't smile, and then after the little pep-talk she got on that dance floor and SLAYED <3
But anyway, on the dance floor we were all goofing around but the end of the night soon came. And the feels hit us.
I didn't cry on prom night (saved the tears for leavers assembly instead😂) but it instantly got really depressing😔
I literally hugged everyone because I wouldn't see them at college- apart from one of them, but yeah. And they told me all that- take care of yourself, have a good one, do great at college, Spider-Man is alive now, you better not grow taller than me, carry on being a little shit and all the rest of it.
And I told them similar things and damn I get the feels just thinking about it.
All the feels come punch me in the face lol😔😂
Any Last Words?
Wrote this because I'm seeing my best friend in like an hour and a half and the thought of prom just came back to me- and reasons I mentioned in the introduction.
I look back at prom it was only what? 5 months ago, yet it feels like forever ago- to think 5 months ago yesterday I would have been talking, laughing, dancing, with all my friends. And yesterday, I was chilling in the morning, went to a class in college, hung with people I didn't even know existed 5 months ago.
Everything has changed so quickly.
Anyway before I get deeper than the ocean I'll close it off here. xD
Hope you enjoyed the read, have a good one andddddddd...
Thank you for reading :) <3
