So, if everything goes well, I'll graduate highschool next year. In my country, there is this tradition, to hold a party similar to the american proms. However, these parties are reaaaally expensive and my school has this stupid tradition on having this 'prom' night every year at the most expensive hotel in town. Honestly, what the fuck?
Anyway, it's not like we are forced to have the party there, but it's a tradition. Yesterday there was this parents' meeting and most of them said they won't pay such a big sum of money for a stupid prom night. Today, we opened the subject in the class, my classmates didn't even want to consider another place where to hold our prom?
Needless to say, I'm not going. Of course, my classmates say I'm a bitch for not going nor paying the teachers' menu, but excuse me if I'm not willing to pay for: a prom which will last for about 5 hours. You pay a sum of about $150 while an average salary in Romania is about $300. You go to this expensive hotel (there is some, as they say 'awesome' room for big parties, but it's not that awesome, really). In that room, there will be around 150-200 people, half of which I don't know because we never talk and another quarter I can't stand seeing. Now tell me, is it worthy?
There are some rich girls in my class for whom going to this prom was a dream ever since they were 10. I don't mean being mean, but if that's your goal in life you should be thrown in a poor village for a month and be fed only with bread and water. See if prom is still your goal in life.
Now, I don't have a problem with the whole idea of having a prom night, although I find it superficial, but people! Consider cheaper places, not every parent can afford giving half of their salaries to their child's prom night. Actually, it's pretty much a salary, maybe even 2, taking in consideration that you need a dress, shoes, make-up and so on.
I'm not much of a party girl, I only go to parties because sometimes I like to act girly but there is a fine line between this and throwing your parents' salaries of your fucking prom night, knowing you're not going to have fun there.
For all these things, and many others for which it would take me a week to write, I say fuck you, class of 2015!
