Arghhhh... I’m soooo confused! (Prom)

Elizabeth • Spooky season! 🎃

Prom is next year and I generally don’t care, my main focus is passing my GCSE’s so I can get into a good 6th form. I think that my friends are being quite silly about all these prom prep things like:

- Pop the cherry

- Have a super hot date

- Get my parents to spend ridiculous amounts of money on transport and dresses ( yes, as in plural)

When I told them I didn’t really want to go to prom, I was bombarded with questions like:

- Seriously, what’s wrong with you?

- That’s so stupid, why not?

- you do know this is the most important night of our lives right?

And honestly, I’m not interested in the drugs, party, alcohol or sex. Like I haven’t even had my first kiss yet.

Sorry if this seems very passive aggressive, I just want to put my feelings out there and see if anyone else has similar views or if I’m just uptight... 🤷‍♀️

(Also sorry if this is in the wrong category, don’t really know where to put this...)
