Everyone wants their Prom night to be one for the books.
So, make sure you do everything in order to REMEMBER ITWe as teenagers always hear the usual, "Don't fall into peer pressure", "Make good choices", "If *insert name here* jumped off a bridge, would you do it too?".
Well Mom, if every other mother didn't use that line, would it have any purpose?
Anyways, prom is full of exciting things, people, parties, and fun. But there are many things you should watch out for.
When you go to prom, the night starts with the picture house. This picture house can often turn into the definition of "pre-gaming"
Pre-gaming, in simple terms, is partying before the party.
At the picture house, you may find hors d'oeuvres, finger foods, lots of frantic family members…and booze. From beer to champagne to wine, they all may be at the picture house. Now I'm not saying you have to stay away entirely, it's prom. Your parents are giving you alcohol to celebrate. So have some! Just know your limits.
So you go to the picture house, you go to the prom, have a good time, and now you're faced with
THE AFTER PARTY. What now?
We all know how these work; the big house, list you have to be on, big price tag, booze and short dresses all around. But be wary, because this is possibly the scariest part of the night.
Have a plan.
Go to the party with a friend and try to use the buddy system. Know your limit on drinking and make sure to "party responsibly". Keep your hand over your drink so that no one can put anything in it. -The simple stuff. Most people think because the party consists of people from your own school, that nothing will happen…well think again.
Don't Forget! If you get a limo, you don't have to worry about driving home! or get an Uber
Your prom night is supposed to be one to remember. In that case, be careful, party responsibly, so that you CAN remember it.
Remember kids, when partying: Always stays classy, never trashy, and a little bit sassy.
