(From my Tumblr blog post)
I purposefully reserved the topic for this. I haven’t talk about it on Facebook or tweet about it on Twitter.
Homecoming is something to look forward to, unless you have not dance on the floor or you are not coming with anyone. I had friends of course, but I didn’t go with anyone. It’s not something to regret but it is something to experience. (And that’s the whole lesson of coming to the dance.) And, if you have already figured out, it was also my first dance. Of course, I had no one to dance with, so I danced with some people.
In addition to dancing, I treacherously wrote everything I thought about the dance on my iPhone notes. *Note: If you want to be a great writer, write every time you think of something you may want to write or talk about. I know it’s very lame for me to do so, but it was worth it.*
I arrived to the venue at 9:00, with all waiting for the entrance. We all entered at about 9:15 after talking to some friends. Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi,” and “Bad Romance,” and Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” warmly welcomed me to the hall. I was beyond excitement of what will be happening that night. At about 9:55, anticipated friend(s) came, which was just right, and I met one weirdly and coincidentally in the bathroom. I lost him, unfortunately.
Therefore, I danced with other people, sat down for a while, and did a little game of shooting-candies-in-the-empty-cups. Rejuvenated, “Teenage Dream” came on suddenly and we went rocking the floor! Break-dancers then ruled the floor along BOB’s “Airplanes”. Entertainingly, their glow-in-the-dark bracelets’ came jerking off and permeated through the floor.  Everybody then bombarded with “The Cha-Cha Slide”. Fun night, indeed.
The rest of the night was [successful?] I couldn’t be more precise than that. Homecoming Court royalties were announced at 11:11, which was decisively the most appropriate motto for the Seniors class of 2011: “Make a Wish.” The slow-motion dance followed, along Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing”.
The Dance ended at 12:00 AM. I got home at about 12:30, ate some snacks, and slept at I-do-not-know-what-time. Basically, I forgot to switch off the lights.
