Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!"

Prom was last night and it was overall a great evening. It was held at the Union League, an old gentleman's club notorious for its formerly stringent membership qualifications. Luckily they now let minorities and women in, and through the front door too! My how times have changed. The architecture of the Union League has not changed though, making it a beautiful building with marble stairs, tall pillars, and a large beautiful ballroom.

The DJ was bad, and somehow neglected to think that a high school dance, or more likely, high school teachers would prefer the "clean" versions of songs. He also didn't realize that no one cares what he thinks and he shouldn't talk, ever, just play music.

Despite that it was so great to see all my friends and classmates dressed in their finest. Everyone was so friendly and happy to see each other. I love going to a small school because I really do know every single person in my grade and most of the people in the grade bellow mine. We all enjoyed seeing each other in something other than school clothes. Sadly, my school days are almost over and I can't help but feel nostalgic...

Your dress is amazing on you! I remember the pic when you found it. It's utterly transformed. It sounds like you had a great time, crappy DJ's aside.

You're wonderful!
And an interesting fact: Here in Croatia, we have flower on a hand too!
But the difference is that we finish the high school with 18, and with 19 go to college :/
