American High School Prom 2016

Fride from Norway
Hi everyone! In today’s blog post I wanted to write about my American prom experience and just basically how the day went.

So my prom was on the 7th of May, which was on a Saturday. I had the whole day planned out with my friends. In America it is really common to go out to take pictures and eat before the actual dance, so some girls from my school asked me to go with them to this restaurant called The Cheesecake Factory. Since I didn’t know the girls too well, I asked if my two other friends could join us as well. We all agreed on meeting up at this one girls house, named Krystal. Her mom had rented a party bus for us to go on. The bus was huge, but there were over twenty girls going on it, so it was nice and not too crowded.

The bus took us first to a really nice park where we got to take some nice pictures. There were other people there too. Some were there for weddings and others quinceaneras (a Mexican/Spanish tradition for 16 year old girls). After being at the park for a while we got on the party bus again and drove to the restaurant. On the way to the restaurant we were playing loud music and dancing, which was really fun! Arriving at the restaurant we didn’t have to wait long. We were so many people, we had preordered tables and the waiter already knew our orders. I got a chicken and avocado sandwich with fries, so did my friends. It was delicious!

When we were done eating we went in separate cars to go to the dance. When we got there all our teachers and our principal greeted us and asked us to vote for prom king and queen. So I did and went in to meet my other friends. Everyone where so pretty and all dressed up. We began dancing and didn’t stop until the night was over. I only took short water breaks to get my breath back. The whole atmosphere had a really good vibe to it and I just didn’t want the night to end. But it finally did and three of my friends plus me took an Uber home. I slept over at my friend’s house and got picked up early the next day.

Over all it was a really successful evening and I would like to thank everyone for making it a memorable experience for me. High school proms are so essential for the teenage life in America and I recommend anyone going to high school in the USA to go to prom, you won’t regret it!
