Yeah, I was voted Prom King for Mount Vernon Presbyterian School's 2014 Prom
Yeah, it was quite an interesting night. Prom has been so stressful, particularly with finding a date. I had a couple of girls say they would go with me, but then they backed out. So I went alone, but it wasn't so bad. Early on, people were just standing around, feeling too awkward to dance. So, I lifted the DJ's microphone and attempted to give a rousing speech:
"My name is Sean Hastings. I'm MVPS's resident third wheel. I've never liked a girl who liked me back, and I had no chance of getting a date to the Prom. But that's not gonna stop me from having a good time! So I want to see y'all get out there and start dancing!"
It took a while, at first. So, I just danced by myself. I had no date, so I danced for two. Little by little, people started to join in. I spent most of the night on the dancefloor, by myself but having fun anyway.
Then the Prom King and Queen were announced. Must say, I was surprised. But I'm not complaining.
I may not have the game to get a girl to date me, but I've got the guts to stand out in front of a large crowd and not care how I'm perceived. I did my own thing tonight, saying what I wanted and dancing however I wanted.
No game, but lot's of guts. No guts, no glory.
April 11th, 2014 is a date that will stand out in my mind for a long time.
Also, I ended up slow-dancing with my principal. That was interesting.
