Staff Pick 4/24
Cody Kemble: Prom is pretty fun and whatnot, but I’m not a huge fan. I think that prom for dudes, is something you do for your date and your parents. It really isn’t something I sit around and stress about. I don’t really care about it, but I’ll try my best to make it fun for everyone else.
Cristopher Carlson: Exciting but stressful.
Wyatt Barajas: Prom is fun but some parts are overrated. Getting dressed up and taking your woman out on the town for a night is fun. Dancing and hanging out with your classmates is a heck of a time. The overrated parts are the preparation, the getting fitted for a suit and deciding what to do for the night. These are things that no man honestly likes to do and it just tarnishes the experience. Decision making on nights like prom never go easy because of the stipulation that the night has to be perfect. But at the end of the night the good outweighs the bad.
Brendan Wong: Proms is arguably one of the most valued moments in high school. Most people look forward to it as a freshman. I was just never that person. To me, my most memorable time, is playing sports with my teammates. When I look back on high school, dances won’t be the thing I think about, the sports trips and games would be what I think and tell stories and talk about. Granted, prom is something special and I hope everybody gets that memorable time but it just is not for me and that is why I am choosing to go on a track trip instead of prom.
Jonathan Barron: Prom is supposed create memories that last forever and allow us to reflect on high school later in life, but I really don’t want one night to depict what I think about high school. I see girls spending several hundred dollars on a dress that they’ll only wear for one night, people making reservations to expensive restaurants, and spend a whole day getting ready for the event and to me the whole investment in prom is just absolutely ridiculous. I ordered my suit off amazon for a cheap $70, I did not make any special dinner reservations, and I am not spending a huge amount of time to ready myself all because I simply don’t care.
