Honestly, this post was a tough one. Also one that I was extremely excited about since I finally get to show you my prom dress but when we were planning to do this we didn’t really expect the challenges we had to face to finally reach the point of taking photos. First of all, we had quite some trouble finding a fitting location that wouldn’t charge a horrendous amount of money for a couple of hours. Secondly, the earrings I ordered and initially was going to wear got lost in the mail so that I had to look spontaneously for an alternative. Then, arriving in the old museum we chose for our photos we were told by the receptionist that it would close in about 20 minutes. We went back earlier the next day just to realize halfway there that we had left the camera at home. One hour later and completely stressed out after changing clothes in the museum’s restroom we were finally able to shoot. Nevertheless, the outcome was definitely worth the effort even though it was kind of an experience to be completely dressed up in a building full of people watching you.
Prom night is definitely one of the nights I will probably remember forever. We all had a great time partying, eating, laughing, chatting and looking back on the past 8 years of high school. I danced with all of my friends up until dawn in my for me very uncommon princess-y dress that is probably every little girl’s dream come true. But when choosing my outfit for the night I figured that they wouldn’t be any occasion such as this any time soon where I could bust out those hidden childhood dreams. However, senior prom is not only an event where people play dress up but also an event of farewell from a lot of things. Friends go different ways after graduating, people drift apart and life just won’t be what we are used to after this particular night. Besides all the dancing and fun I will also remember the deep (and honestly, not quite sober) conversations I had about life, love and purpose. And I am not gonna lie being the emotional mess that I am I might have shed one or two tears as well. At the end of the day I can call myself very lucky being surrounded by friends and people that believe in me not matter what and always there for me when I am feeling down. But I guess right now the only thing I can do is welcoming this new chapter of my life: so hi, I don’t know you and to be honest, I don’t know what to think of you yet. I hope we’ll get along.
