I never was a big fan of HS and still think it was just a tool to get me into college but prom was fun times. No matter how cool you think you are for school, I'd recommend going.

High school stops mattering as soon as the ink is dry on your diploma.

I graduated 20 years ago and still remember that "ok, what now?" feeling. Didn't feel that way after college or grad school.

i doubt you missed much but id try to go to things like that. There is no reason not to. I didn't want to go to prom (didn't care) and a friend dragged me as her date. We had a great time.

As a HS'er... what would be a better use of your time? using the computer? video games?

I disagree with everyone else saying it's a waste of time. Yes, as you grow up it seems very trivial. But you're in HS, play the part. What else you got going on? Not saying it's great, but it's about the experience. Going through what a regular HS kid should go through, then having memories of it and years later being able to laugh with old buddies about it, converse about it, tell your kids about it. It's there for a reason, a rite of passage, that most HS'ers go through. No reason to miss out.

For people saying it's a waste of time.. as a HS'er.. what else you got going on that is more important?

If you have a job and need to support yourself.. ok. If you're a young athlete with a promising career.. ok. If there's family emergencies requiring you to be elsewhere.. ok.

But for most HS kids.. what else? internet? video games? porn? sports? All of these you can do some other time. Just go enjoy youself, or at least experience what other regular kids go through.

I don't get being too "cool" for school dances. I went to my prom, it was lame but it was fun, it was a party, and afterwards we went to a party on the beach and i got to fool around with my date who was just a friend due to peer pressure (everyone else was with their one true love and going at it so what the hell!).

Being too "cool" to go have fun with your friends at school reminds me of the goth kids in south park.

I remember I went to Homecoming my Sophomore year with some friends, but it was really really lame. My brother, friend, and I went back to my house after about an hour to set up for the party we were having afterwards. So while everyone else was "crankin dat soulja boy" we were already drinking. Most people showed up before the dance ended and the party was awesome.

Didnt go to any dances Junior year.

Homecoming senior year was ok, pretty boring. By the time of Prom I had a girlfriend, so I had to go. It was pretty fun, mainly because I liked the girl. All the pictures and walk through crap was pretty annoying. Her parents were forcing her to go to afterprom, even though my parents didn't really care what I did. Most of my friends were going to this party, but I got dragged to afterprom, which was pretty boring.

Basically what rip said, there isn't usually anything else to do. And I highly doubt there were actual lapdances, probably just some grinding. (which is cool if you like awkward boners)


EDIT: Actually I remember Homecoming senior year I had a girlfriend from a different school. She never tried to talk to any of my friends or get to know any of their gf's, which made it awkward. She insisted that we left early, so we did. Went back to my house, watched movies, smashed.

A lot of my friends, including me, didn't even get into home coming . The school decided to surprise us with breathalyzer tests. Guess it wasn't a good idea to take shots before going. Once we saw the line to get in and cops giving breathalyzer tests, a lot of people just left.

this is what I meant. Even if it sucked, at least you've been there so you can say it sucked, instead of missing out.
