For me prom is more than a dance. It is more than who gets queen, princess, king, or prince. Prom is a time when I can get together with my girlfriends, help each other get ready, and make memories. It’s nice every now and then to look and feel pretty, and prom is an excuse to dress up. I do like to dance, sing, and eat food, but getting ready and making memories is the most enjoyable part of prom for me.
When I finally got home from prom my eyelids where ready to shut. Caked on makeup always makes my eyes sore and tired. As I laid my head on my pillow, I started thinking, “That was my last high school dance I will ever attend.” In a little over two weeks I will be done with high school. Where did all my time go? As I started to get excited that I was almost done, I soon felt a deep sense of sadness as well. This was my last prom. These are my last weeks of school. I am growing up and I can't crawl into a box. It is going to happen and soon. I have to move on. I won’t forget about the past, but I will move onto my future.
I soon fell into a deep sleep and dreamed about my childhood and how I am so thankful to God for the place I have grown up in. Kenny Lake School and community I am going to miss you!
