First off, Yes, yes I have been VERY dead on this. Life exists outside of my computer, and I have been seriously dead bus with school and choir and theater and just LIFE!
Now, Some MAY have heard of this, most, probably not. So, there are school proms, however those really don't have much in standards and may be rather awkward and yada yada yada. So, there is a big multi-stake Formal for all youth 16-18 (generally)
for any who don't know what a "stake" is, if you think how in a school there are boundaries and if you live in a specific area you go to that school, and then there are school districts. Well, in this case, a "ward" is like a "school" and a "stake" would be like a "school district".
Alright, so I went to the Mormon Formal (also known as Mormal or MoPro or Mormon Prom). I was asked out a month ago. He's a friend I made at a church dance a year and a half ago. I saw him a dance unexpectedly, so I asked if he was planning on going and he said he wanted to, but he didn't know who to ask, then inquired as to whether I was going or not. I said I'd love to go, but I have no one to go with. At which point, he just kinda lit up and asked if I'd go with him. I know, don't talk about dates, but there's only go to share, that's why I believe it's okay. There wasn't a single thing he could have done different to make me feel more comfortable leading up to it. No plans were left for very last minute, except perhaps time, but that's not in our control, so it doesn't count.
Mormal was the 3/22/14. The previous night and that early morning were both very rough for me. Things were a little hard trying to get myself ready to meet him for dinner, but I wasn't THAT late, okay? I was helping a friend be able to enter the dance, that's very good reason to be a little late. >.< He was very polite, and nice and I felt bad because I have terrible dinner manners, but he was very good. He really enjoyed all my puns too and didn't mind the fact that I can break out into song at random intervals. There was even a room in the Museum that had a dome top, so I just started making high sounds that I felt sounded very beautiful, but that could found as annoying or bothersome, so I apologized and he said it was okay because it was very cool and pretty.
He really was fantastic. I mean, held doors open, pulled out chairs, was my pocket for the night (he held my phone and lipstick and ticket and my bag of candy from the candy bar x)
) and he didn't mind it a bit. He even walked me to my door. So, simply put, it was absolutely fantastic. Fun conversation, just enjoyed the whole night. We only danced to two songs, but we spent most the rest of the time walking around the museum. You know those rooms that have stuffed animals in 'natural environments'? We walked through one and counted all the animals we could find. It was like a scavenger hunt, it was a lot of fun x)
And I got home at 1. His parents were very cool too. I liked them. So yes, if you have any questions, just ask, or even message me :3
So, how have you been?
