    1. Are you going to your prom or spring formal? If not, why not?
    I did. May 2nd.
    2. Who are you planning to go with?
    I went with my boyfriend.
    3. What kind of dress do you envision yourself wearing? Where do you think you’ll find it?
    I wore a purple dress that had a “sheer” collar and cap sleeves with beading. I found it at Elder Beerman in February
    4. What are your pre-dance plans? Dinner?
    Dinner at Lone Star Steak House.
    5. Are you getting to the dance a special way, like by limo or with a group of friends?
    Nope.
    6. What are your plans for pre-dance photos?
    They were pretty much all at my house.
    7. What aspect of prom or spring formal are you most looking forward to?
    It was my senior year, and at my junior prom, my ex-boyfriend and his now-ex-girlfriend, who happens to be my boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend, also, pretty much rubbed in my face that my life was miserable at the time. The guy I liked at the time, his prom date said that I looked pretty, which was expected; I don’t see myself as beautiful; and then my ex and his girlfriend came in; she was wearing a dark purple one “sleeve” dress with gems, her hair all done up, and, of all things to make her more of the thing she is that I cannot mention on a Christian site, a tiara; and the guy I liked’s prom date said she looked beautiful. That was totally unexpected. They pretty much rubbed it in my face the entire night that my ex was my only chance at dating, that he didn’t want to date me anymore, and that my life was pretty much in ruins. I drove home that night crying because I felt hopeless. I didn’t want that to be my last high school prom memory, so I went this past year.
    8. What’s your dance’s theme this year? Did you help at all with the planning?
    It was Fire and Ice. That’s pretty much all I helped with; picking the theme, since I was on Student Council and they were the organization that got it ready. In fact, it was the ONLY school organization/club my school’s ever had besides sports.
    9. What would your dream dance theme be?
    Disney Dance. Then the song “Let It Go” from Frozen wouldn’t seem so out-of-place for me.
    10. What song are you most excited to dance to at prom or spring formal?
    “Here Without You” by 3 Doors Down. My boyfriend chose it as our song. “Let It Go” by Idina Menzel was a total shock. I’m just glad this one kid wasn’t there, because he said “The next time someone plays this song, someone’s gonna get pistol-whipped!” D-:

    1. Are you going to your prom or spring formal? If not, why not?
    I went to prom, yes! It was on April 26th.

    2. Who are you planning to go with?
    I went with one of my good guy friends. (We truly just went as friends––there are no romantic feelings to or from either party in regards to the other.)

    3. What kind of dress do you envision yourself wearing? Where do you think you’ll find it?
    I wore a floor-length purple dress from Deb. It had a halter v-neck strap with large rhinestones decorating the v-neck, and the back was open but criss-crossed in a cool pattern with the same rhinestones over it. It had a slight court train, and the fabric was silky.

    4. What are your pre-dance plans? Dinner?
    My group and I got ready at a friend’s house, and then we took pictures and went to the school for Grand March. We had dinner at prom, then went out afterwards to various places.

    5. Are you getting to the dance a special way, like by limo or with a group of friends?
    My date drove me to the dance and back to my other friend’s house afterwards. From my friend’s house, we took a party bus around town and stopped at random locations.

    6. What are your plans for pre-dance photos?
    We went to my friend’s house––she has a really pretty trellis and porch that made a nice background. Some of our shots were funny (pushing each other, lining up and looking at our dates weird, etcetera), and some were cutesy (the guys picking the girls up, couple shots, etcetera).

    7. What aspect of prom or spring formal are you most looking forward to?
    I was most excited to get all dressed up and have a blast with friends.

    8. What’s your dance’s theme this year? Did you help at all with the planning?
    It was “A Night In Paris,” and I helped with the design for center pieces and the playlist.

    9. What would your dream dance theme be?
    I honestly don’t know! The Paris one was really fun.

    10. What song are you most excited to dance to at prom or spring formal?
    I was super excited that they played “Everytime We Touch” by Cascada. It was a blast to dance and mosh around to! (Our prom is a giant mosh pit of sweaty people jumping up and down and accidentally or on purpose slamming into each other. It was super fun! And I go to a Christian school, so I didn’t have to worry about grinding or anything.)
