Things That Happened the Night of Formal
A curling wand burnt your neck three times.
You had to re-do your eyeliner twice because it wasn’t symmetrical.
You bought a brand new formal dress last week, but decided you didn’t like it and proceeded to try on three different dresses before settling.
Then, you spent an additional 10 minutes trying on jewelry and different pairs of heels.
Once you and your squad were ready, you took hundreds of pictures: laughing candids, sorority squads, greek fam pictures, date pictures, etc.
You almost missed the bus because you had to stop to grab Jimmy Johns (Wawa, 711, or McDonald’s) for the road.
After arriving, you were reminded of how young you are when everyone 21+ went to the cash bar.
A country song came on and you and your date had absolutely no idea how to dance to it.
So you both went to the snack table instead.
You may or may not have grabbed a bag of chips and extra waters for the bus ride home.
You continue taking more pictures because the 100+ you took earlier just won’t make the Instagram cut.
You spend the entire bus ride home Instagramming and ordering yourself a pizza.
- You survived formal.
