Today is prom day. No, I'm not going (I'm apparently one of the few freshmen who aren't?). There are a few benefits to prom day, even if you're not going:
1. You get to choose your lunch period if enough people are absent :D There are only two lunch periods today, and since the teacher gets to choose which one you go to (meh), there's at least a 50/50 chance you'll get to sit with people you normally wouldn't be able to.
2. Most people are absent. Including the ones you don't like. Heh.
3. You get to hang out in the A+ lab when your second period teacher, the one in charge of prom, leaves early. Woo! And then you can blog!
4. You get to take balloons out to aforementioned second period teacher's car rather than do your freaking Algebra II homework. The only downfall is that there's always a chance you'll practically fall on a curb and end up pulling a muscle in your hip, of all places.
And those are four benefits to prom day I can really appreciate, even though I'm not going.
