So yeah. I learned a lot about senior ball. I learned I dislike most of the popular music among my age group and demographic. They said the DJ sucked. I agree. But I’m not sure we agree in the same way. Ended up learning a lot of positive things, but unfortunately learned my mom really can’t deal with losing control, and may have contributed to my burgeoning lack of knowledge of fashion.
I detailed the run up to the ball a bit in earlier blogs. Ridiculous awkwardness cumulated in failure. I asked a friend as a friend, which turned out to be sort of strange considering their awkwardness. And the fact they were a bit straightforward with the fact that they didn’t really want to do anything at ball. Day of ball….. Anyways. Looking back, it was just sort of to be socially acceptable. Woohoo. Went with a group of people. Was fairly fun. Being minority white guy is fun. Woohoo.
Cut to ball. It’s fun, I guess. Didn’t get any of music. Friend was entirely uh, uninterested in doing anything. Which was somewhat expected. I don’t think they had been to a dance as of yet. This is why you plan ahead folks.
Still, probably was a good thing I asked them, so I went. Dance started, about 1/3 of way through, ended up asking a single female to dance. We kept it reasonable (wtf, dancing is either convulsing or grinding nowadays) but it really showed me that heck, a lot of it is more of my negative self-assessment and unwillingness to take action than any real flaw. It was a lot of fun, and showed that if I am assertive and not self doubting I can do a lot better than I previously thought.
Was constrained by parents to come home right after. Which was either a good or bad thing. Hard to say. Good news: I got sleep. Bad news: didn’t do a whole lot.
Speaking of which, when I had my clothes for ball my mom had a fit about the shade of the tie. And owuldn’t let go, saying I would be humiliated. Nothing such happened. But she did get very angry, and sort of has been for the last couple days. She couldn’t stand to lose control of a tie I was wearing. I’m sure going away to college will be easy for her @.@
BBC radio six is awesome.
These are my thoughts on ball in abstract form.
Lol people spend too much, wtf limo, why?, music is weird, I only know three songs, lol that’s not dancing that’s grinding, woohoo, I can ask somebody to dance and not have head bitten off.
