1. Prom. It's this Saturday. I've already stated here I wasn't gonna go. Unfortunately, my plans to babysit fell through so I have accidentally lied to my friends for why I'm not going. Still, I don't have a dress and the thought of getting myself ready and pretty does not sound fun. If they ask I'll tell them the truth, but for not I just will keep it on the DL.
2. Grad Bash. It's a senior-only night at Islands of Adventure and Universal on April 20th. I'm not going to this either. I debated this a bit because I mean, who doesn't want to spend all night at a theme park? Then I realized the price was basically the same as a normal day ticket, which is pretty lame. Besides, most of my friends have annual passes and this date of course would be a blacked-out, meaning they couldn't use it, and they'd have to pay more. Not to mention the dress code is ridiculously strict because it is a school function. I'm not even sure they'd let you wear a bathing suit under your clothes for rides like Atlantis and such. If the summer goes as planned I will just go with friends and finally see Wizarding World in the flesh.
3. Senior wills. There's a rumor that we aren't writing these this year, but I hope there's no truth behind it. I agree the ones last year were outrageously long, and if that's why we can't do it, because they wasted ink, I will be mad. I've patiently waited all four years to leave things to my underclassmen friends and my peers. I think it's something that defines being a senior, more so even than Grad Bash or to an extent Prom (granted my school's Prom is exclusively senior). I guess I have to keep my ear to the ground to know. I have no idea if there will be senior superlatives. From my understanding they are arbitrarily picked by the Yearbook/Newspaper staff so you better be friends with them or you're not going to get one. I could be wrong about this, that seniors actually vote, yet for some reason I'm not convinced.
4. Hands on the wall. The Interact Club sponsors this project each year where a selected artist from the class paints a mural and then seniors pay to put their hands and name around it on the same wall. I've always thought this was neat and I'm definitely taking part.
5. Pool party. The day before grad practice seniors go for only the first half of the day then attend this. You can also merely leave campus and I must talk to friends about having a movie marathon. Actually, it might just be a study day. Sadly, I think there are AICE exams the next day. Obviously the University of Cambridge doesn't care if it interferes with our grad practice.
There may be some things I'm forgetting...I'm tired.
Everything is starting to happen so fast. It is simultaneously awesome and scary.
I'm curious what senior traditions there are at your school!
