let me start off by saying that this post is not meant to be vain in any way. doing outfit posts is a huge leap for little ole me, i rarely like posing for the camera because i feel like a goof. i'm not the kind of girl who likes to rant on about her clothes and shoes, and, well, girly stuff like that. (i'm laughing over here) i wasn't even going to write about tonight in the first place, but my sister convinced me that i absolutely and completely needed too, this being my first formal dance. and i'm sure some of you wanted to see photos of my dress, due to the fact that i cannot describe clothing worth a flip. anyway, here it goes.

a friend asked me to his school's homecoming dance which took place tonight. to say that i love dancing is an understatement. so with three straight hours of non stop bouncing-shaking-hair flipping-hand clapping-wildness with the occasional awkward-sweet slow dancing, i quite enjoyed myself tonight. being surrounded by dozens of old friends is even better to me. you can dance like crazy and nobody cares because they're doing the same and we're all just there to have a good time. laughing our heads off and dancing our hearts out, that's a nice combination for any occasion.

(my hair decided not to cooperate with me tonight. and so after a solid half hour of attempting to curl it, i gave up and let it have its way. i'm slowly learning that i cannot tame this frizz.)
