A Walk Down Memory Lane...

You remember those high school days right? The classes you took and the friends you hung around with. Maybe your even still close to a few friends from the past or maybe you have moved on to new people. Of course who could forget the parties and homecoming football games?!

Honestly, I didn't have the greatest high school experience; Okay, who am I kidding? It pretty much sucked 99.9% of the time. But there is always good with the bad and when I was able to go to school and share some of the high school memories like homecoming and classes, it wasn't half bad.

I just had to post about the good old days today since it has been 1 year since I graduated high school. Actually, what I really want to post about is prom.

Today is my sister's senior prom and seeing her getting ready and rush around makes me kinda sad. Okay, It makes me depressed. Not just because of prom and all the hulabaloo of getting ready, but the fact that she's living a life and events like this bring my none existant life into focus yet again.

I was able to go to prom, but I didn't get to have the poofy dress or the amazing date. I had a boyfriend at the time, but looking back, I want to think of prom with someone who is more perminante; A month later we broke up. Lol

I hope she has an amazing time with her boyfriend of 2 1/2 years(yes, he is a fixture in our household every Friday through Monday morning and whenever he has time off) and that she makes so many memories that will last her a lifetime and beyond.

She deserves it :D

For those of you who want to see it, here is a picture of me on the day of my senior prom with one of my best friends.

I totally wish I would have taken off that sweater thing for the pictures. Lol

I like your dress!!

Prom for me wasn't the experience I had wanted either, which really sucked. My senior year one of my best friends died tragically, so what was meant to be the best year of my life became really screwed up and hard to deal with. I ended up going with her older brother to the Prom (my friend), which was sweet, but still I wish my experience was like the ones you see on TV and stuff; corsage, nervous date, slow dancing, and good night kiss. Oh well, we will make different memories in our lives. You are still so young and have many more great moments ahead.
