This past January, my AP Government class found out we wouldn't be able to go to prom because we would be in D.C. at the competition we'd been preparing for all year. We were all pretty devastated since we're all seniors and didn't want to miss our last prom, but we weren't about to give up everything we'd been working for and would be working for in the months preceding the competition. Our solution: if we can't go to prom, we'll have our own!
Over the weekend, we got dressed up, went out to dinner, and had a great time. Even though we didn't get to experience "real" prom, I'd say we still had so much fun. Plus, who doesn't love an excuse to get dressed up to take pictures with friends?
