I had fun. I am soooo glad I brought Eddie. I don't think I spent alot of my time with him, but he's fun, easy to talk to, and was someone that I could make fun of things like slow dances with, and still slow dance with. We waltzed for a few songs and I kept forgetting I was the girl. I have problems with that. When I learned to dance, I was always the boy because I was taller then most of the girls in my grade (lie, I was the tallest).
I was socail. *gasp shock*
I think the thing about this year is that I've finally become somewhat more comfortable with myself, and am fine with making a fool of myself in the more typical fashions -- dancing poorly, and making fun of myself -- because I was fine with odd clothes and having a strange way of talking (I don't actaully mind when people point out things like the fact that I say "road" instead of "street" all the time) and basically making a fool of myself in other ways. I want to be myself, and I don't want other people to tell me who I am.
The other thing about this year is that I was able to branch out. Tanzania gave me a base for knowing that I do actaully like people, and I'm confident that I'm slightly strange, yes, but people like me. Not everyone obviously, but there are more people in the world then two who like me. This being said, it does not mean that I can be with people all the time. I do need a little time to myself. Not alot, but I need a breather every now and then. Anyways. Tanzania helped me incredibly, and then Shadow Box increased that. I feel better about myself, I feel as if I might be able to manage next year. I will not shut down. I hope I won't.
So yesterday was blah. I woke Kat up and we went to get our nails done in West Newton, and a ton of people were there. Then we went to Anna's (despite the fact that we shouldn't have been eating, har har) and then we came back and Kat showered and I walked Tillie down to the nail place (in the rain) and got my cell phone, which I had left there, of course. Then we went to Sakara's and tried to do Kat's hair. This failed. She just has too much of it. Then I went home and drove Jasper to the library. Missed VIBE pictures, but it wasn't much according to others, so its all right. Hmmm.
Then I came home and did my make up and fixed up my bag. Then dad came home, took pictures and then I went to Kat's. We had decided that Aaron would drive us all, because parking is ridiculously expensive. Kat's parents took pictures of us. Then Aaron arrived, and there was a long discussion of how to put the boutteniere in. It was amusing. Then we went to get Eddie at his mother's house. His aunt was there and was like "You know I went to prom with an Eddie, his uncle." She was cute -- despite the fact that Eddie doesn't like her. Then we had to go to Eddie's dad's for photos. Then we left.
Prom was alot of dancing and wandering around between groups of people (sort of) -- Martha, Nathan, Lily, Eddie, and so on, then the Melly, Carly kind of world, and Kat finally, who is a world into herself :P. Someone passed out in the bathroom, that was fun. -.-
Then we left. Me and Eddie made fun of dancing -- did it anyway -- I talked to people and it was good. But that was prom. It was uneventful for an event. I think mostly because its one of those things you wait for, but its just not that good when you get to it. It might also be along the lines of that I went with a friend and not with a BOY, which might change things. ;)
Celebration was irritating I think. I went to Spon Gen because it was cool in LT. It was funny, but everyone was so tired, so it wasn't as good as it could have been. S'all right. Nathan looked so tired, poor baby.
Kat slept over after and I slept till like 11. It was strange. I usually don't sleep that late.
That was prom. MY CAMERA broke and I was PISSED OFF. It was really annoying and I thought I might kill something. Its super irritating because I was excited to document something myself. Ah well.
