A Black Tie Affair.


On March 28, my school had an event called Protocol. I usually end up describing it as like Prom just without the dancing. But in reality, it's nothing like Prom. We go out to a nice restaurant and then out to a play. Sounds like good fun right? Here's the catch: We get assigned escorts. After all, it's not meant to be a dating situation. It's nerve wracking standing there and seeing the envelops being handed out to the guys. Who know's who you'll end up with. This year I was fortunate enough to have O. be my escort. He was great!

We all went out to eat at the Georgian Room and then to see Hello Dolly. The food was simply amazing, and the play was hilarious. Compared to last year, my night was perfect. I've known O. for awhile, but I haven't gotten a chance to talk to him one on one. It wasn't awkward at all (he's usually pretty quiet). We shared some good laughs and talked about random stuff.
I didn't want the evening to ever end: It all seemed to surreal. When I got home, it was so hard to take off the dress, wash the makeup off, and brush out my hair. A bunch of us go to the same church, so we had the crazy idea to where our dresses and tuxes. I had the time of my life, and if I could relive one day of my life this would be it.

So here are some of the pictures that were taken throughout the evening. Enjoy = ]

I was going for the 1940s look (R. and I)

O. and I at our table

I haven't had a lot of time to get on here, so I'm sorry. But I have Spring break next week = D. I'll will hopefully be blogging a little more: I have a lot to talk about.

You look gorgeous! I love your dress too, that sounds fun to be assigned a date, but there isn't any dancing? hmm... interesting. I wish that people would just dress up formally for no good reason. How fun would that be!

Aw, you look amazing! Glad you had a fun night. Although it's a bit weird that they assign escorts but then again you got a good one.

u look awesome!!!! lol

thanx for ur great comment. I missed u!! well, yea, rehersal can be stressful, but it's the best experience. We just finished up with the play last week. Now I have nothing to do...lol

I think I have this curse in which I must always fall for a dude in a play with me. seriously. My last major crush that I think I might have been able to call love, was on this dude in a school play. Now I'm falling deeply for this really cute dude and he also likes fall out boy. lol, had to say that. I don't know how to make him notice me at all...I really want him to see me. we were helping eachother out before we went on stage because we were almost gonna puke we were so nervous.

but everytime he smiles at me...i feel all fizzy inside. and when i see him from afar i get all shy and red in the face and my heart feels wierd. lol. this is strange...

anyway, I'll probably upload my Boston series next. cant wait!! btw, u should get a twitter, its a great way to keep up with people and stuff, plus we could see whats going on with eachother :) Pete Wentz has one...lol. random.

anyway, i've missed u lots. how have u been??

well to get over the nerves, i just breathed and I pretended that the whole theater was a busy street and the audience was all the busy people and my friend was on the other side of the street and I had to say something to her (over the noise of the busy people) that happened to be scripted. lol. my friend told me that technique would work.

the problem is, I hardly see him anymore now that the play is over. Plus He's in a different grade so he's in none of my classes :( I always wanna say hi in the hall, but I always freak out...also, lol, i dont even know him that well from rehersals because we didnt talk enough...I wish I was really outgoing...my friend told me to "Get my flirt on" and...that sounds NOTHING like me...lol!!

they were doing a scene from the play for this thing in the community, "Stars On Stage", and I wasn't in that scene, so I went to watch anyway, u know, to support them, and so I could see him. so I sat at the VERY back cuz I was shy and there were no other seats. So by the end my mom is like (yea, my mom had to take me :P ) "go say bye to them, and congradulate them" but i completely chickened out!!! lucky we didnt find 'em!! Sometimes I wonder if he even saw the little girl in the back, quietly watching him. (yea, sounds kinda stalker-ish lol!)

i dunno if I can ever tell him how i feel. I've never comfessed my feelings before, and (yes, this sounds lame) my parents are UBER strict on dating and if my dad found out...well he'd probably seriously spaz out. lol.

When I realize i like someone, I feel like a little girl lost in a HUGE crowd not knowing what to do. I guess i just gotta go with the flow and see where the crowd takes me...Maybe I'll end up somewhere great. I hope.

Cannot wait to see ur twitter!! the link to mine is in my post btw. :) thanx for all the advice and I lurve ur long "book" comments!! haha, i just wrote one now.
