Here’s the recipe so far:
A heaping spoonful of over-the-top decorations
1 Cup of formal wear
A dash of spin the bottle…
It’s five days away and counting. I wouldn’t call it the biggest day of my short life, thus far, but it’s up there. I grew up watching Mary-Kate and Ashley celebrate their Sweet Sixteens in style, and I’ll be damned if I don’t get my time in the spotlight. I also hear that there’s a Facebook message going around brainstorming ideas for my gifts…I’m expecting some interesting things to come of that…
I have to ask though: is all of this kind of shallow? It does seem to feel like it when I write it all out like this. But when you’re in high school it feels like you’re just another person in the crowd sometimes. I just want to have one day where everybody dresses up and makes everything all about me. Is that wrong?
