This is not what I paid for

There are times when something really important happens and I instantly want to blog and talk about it. Then there are other times when I just kind of clam up and don’t want to mention it. I’ve been kind of like that lately. I wanted to say thanks to everyone who left a lovely comment on my last post. <3 I might be a while in responding, but I’ll slowly return them.

Prom was Saturday night. I had been looking forward to it for a while; I had my beautiful dress, my shoes, got a new straightener to do something with my hair, was all set for it in every way. The night started out well. Becky and Jacqueline came over to get ready together and we all looked lovely. That was about the highlight of my night.

We went to take pictures at a park nearby with someone Becky was going with and it was awful. His mom came and we took pictures for a whole freaking hour. What do you even take pictures of for an hour?! She took individual shots, posed shots, shots with different backgrounds. Gosh, it was like I was getting married… except I wasn’t! My mom stayed for about ten minutes to take some and then left. Here are a few of my favorites:


After that, we went to the hotel that our prom was being hosted at. It was nice at first, but the music kind of sucked, and it just didn’t live up to the expectations I had for it. Afterwards, we went to meet up with a group of friends at IHOP and on the way there, me and Andrew got into a fight. I was pissed, he was apologetic. We didn’t talk the rest of the evening. Neither of us had an appetite by the time we got to the restaurant. It was awful.

He took my home, and I vividly remember telling him, “You ruined my prom night.” And then I just left. Looking back at it now, I feel so horrible. I was pissed off, disappointed, and had all these emotions running through me and just said it.

We hardly talked the rest of the weekend. We’ve only been in one other fight the entire time we’ve been together, so I was not prepared for the silence and loneliness that I felt. I think I cried most of the weekend.

I’m not going to go into much more detail, but it was just overall a horrible weekend. Becky had a horrible time as well. Andrew and I have made up since then, and are fine, but we both said stuff that shouldn’t have been said, and we both feel awful about it. Just thinking about prom makes me want to cry. It definitely did not go how I wanted it to go, but c’est la vie.

  1. Eek, sorry to hear about your bad night!

    I never went to prom and never did and still don’t regret it.

    Pictures for a whole hour!? Sheesh. I’m sure ten or so minutes would have sufficed, haha. I hate getting my picture taken so even ten minutes would have been too long for me. >.<

    Hopefully next year, if you go, is better! I like your dress by the way. :D

    Thankyou! I love the colours to. |D They’re a lot like your’s! My purple is just a bit different!

    I’m nearly healed! Now it doesn’t sting in the shower so that’s awesome. ^w^ I have this weird tendency to try and peal the stuff off my knee…|D And it doesn’t bleed! Magic. XD

    I still wanna see Hop. XD Next week on Wednesday I am going with my 2 friends. 8DD Yayyy!!! Click here. :D

    WOWWW….PICTURES FOR AN HOUR IS JUST FREAKY DUDEY….XD….I like you and your friends’ dresses! They look so awesome. <33

  3. Awww I’m sorry for what happened to your prom night. It’s really disappointing to have an argument with your partner especially if you’re expecting that day to be perfect and special but at the end of the day, what is more important is that you and him are okay again, right? There are still more important occasions other than prom and you two can make it up on that time :) When my bf and I had an unexpected quarrel, we’ll just let the situation cool first before we talk so that we can already think straight since its hard to make decisions or say something when you’re mad. You’re just going to speak some hurtful words which you will really regret later on.

    Anyway, I’m glad that you’re fine now. Hope it won’t happen again.

  4. Ah man! I’m sorry to hear about your prom night. I hope another formal party will come to replace that evening.
    I’m glad to hear there was at least one highlight. You totally look awesome Becca!
    I’m glad you an Andrew have made up. :)

    Happy Birthday Becca!

    I’m sorry your prom didn’t go well. At least you and Andrew talked over things. It happens though, I sometimes say things I don’t mean and I feel like the most horrible person EVER. It sucks.

    An hour? A freaking hour?! What in the…?! I would have snatched the camera out of her hands after the first 10 minutes, tbh.

    You look so nice in your dress, though :D You guys are cute! x

  6. Awh, you look so pretty in that dress. :) I’m sorry your prom didn’t go like you wanted it to D: Sometimes things like that just don’t live up to your expectations, ya know?

    Gah, I know what you mean. One of the worst feelings possible is when you wish you could take back something you’ve said. ;/

    Wow, an hour of pictures? How could you possibly fill that much time with just taking pictures…? xD Some people, honestly.

    Anyway, have a lovely day~!

  7. You look really pretty in that dress! And that dress s pretty too. ^^ It’s sad and disappointing when things don’t turn out the way you wanted it to. Taking pictures for an hour sounds like torture. XD Mad about photography or what? :P
    Aww… I hate it when I say things I don’t mean to and regret it like crazy afterwards. :( At least you guys made up. :)
    I hope things will go well for you next time. :)

    I like lazy P.E lesons too. :) Who doesn’t? XD Yeah, I guess I could count myself lucky. I’ve recovered now and I wish with all my might that I won’t fall again! :P

  8. We have our times when its ups and downs -__-! But you just gotta fight it (:

    Proms on Saturday nights are the best B)! I`m not sure about Friday nights because you have school earlier. D: Unless the school is cool enough to let you have a day off XD!

    There’s nothing bad about taking pictures for an hour :O! I would love to have that done for prom! You won`t regret it when you`re older. Trust. Unless the mom made you guys late to the prom itself -__-!

    D: I am sorry about the ending of prom :(! That happens in life, fights with your significant other. Thats the test. If you both can make up, then you both are able to last together (:

    If that happened to me, I would`ve just.. Bust a Snooki and just leave.

    Take care (:
