Oh, Those High School Dances! Blog Hop


Hey everyone!  I'm not posting my MAYbe post today, because today is the "Oh, Those High School Dances!"  Blog Hop hosted by Kelley Lynn from Between the Bookends.  To participate go here.


Here are the rules for participation:
1. Post pictures of your high school dances. (Make sure you tell us which one you are if they're group pictures.)
2. Share with us your funniest high school dance story.
3. That's it!


So here we go!



So this delightfully embarrassing picture came from what's called Music Formal, because yes, I was a band nerd and was in the color guard of my high school band (I was actually the Captain for 3 years =D).  This is my sophomore year so I was about 16 or 17.  I'm the one on the left and that's my friend Melissa.  (She didn't know I posted this so please don't tell her, tehe).

I don't really have any funny dance stories, but I do have a little story about this dance.  Back in the day I was OBSESSED with Jason Mraz.


And by obsessed I mean extreme fangirl, brings CD player to bed and listens to his music until I fall asleep and have sweet dreams of his awesomeness obsessed!  Well anywho my sister told me he was playing at her college campus!  I was like OMIGOD :DDDDDDD  Then I found out what day it was...the same day as Music Fomal.  *Sigh*  I had a choice to make.  Go to the concert and potentially meet my idol and he brings me on stage and sings to me while I quickly melt into a puddle of Mraz goodness in front of him...or go to the dance.  As you can see by the picture, I went to the dance.

I'VE NEVER REGRETTED ANYTHING SO BAD IN MY DAMN LIFE!  I had a horrible time.  Melissa and I were bored and ended up going to Taco Bell.  I later got to see Jason Mraz in college, but it wasn't the same.  I was no longer obsessed and the music wasn't the same.  He hardly sang anything off his old album!  


So I guess this story really isn't that funny, but I did learn a lesson and that's if you have an opportunity to do something out of the ordinary DO IT!  Don't conform because your friends are all doing it!  Take that magic barge and sail away off into the sunset of Mrazness, err, you know what I mean.  That is all.  Oh, and feel free to laugh because it actually is a little funny, lol.

Aww, how sad. But if you missed the dance, you probably would have regretted that, too. :D

Emily R. King said...

Ha! I love that you went with one of your gal pals. The times I went with a friend to a dance was much more fun than when I had an actual date. I liked the freedom of it.

Shiela Calderón Blankemeier said...

I did laugh :)As a former band geek myself (2 years with clarinet, 4 more with the bass clarinet) let me just say that you look beautiful! Band nerds unite :)

Kelley Lynn said...

You should have told Jason to meet you at Taco Bell :)

That dress is beautiful and so are you my dear! Is Jason still single???

I'm just sayin'... :)

twentysomethingfictionwriter said...

You're probably right I didn't think about that, haha

twentysomethingfictionwriter said...

Yeah, I went to so many with my girls! It's so mellow and great :D

twentysomethingfictionwriter said...

Yeah band nerds!

twentysomethingfictionwriter said...

Why thank you and oh god I wish! He would have made my night!

Danielle B. said...

Oh hon, don't regret it. It was a learning experience. Concerts come before dances. I think it should be a unwritten rule anyways. But on a side note, you look great!

ilima said...

I cannot believe you are a SOPHOMORE in that picture. You look fabulous!

Tyrean Martinson said...

I love the life lesson - "if you have an opportunity to do something out of the ordinary, do it!" Great post!

Small Town Shelly Brown said...

LOL! SO funny!!
If this is your biggest regret in life consider yourself lucky :D
But I can't really blame you. He is kinda hot.

Jenny Morris said...

Oh, Jason would have been fun. You guys look cute!

Summer Lane said...

Man, I love the dresses you guys are wearing in that picture!!!

Samantha said...

I love the color of your dress!! As far as Jason Mraz, I had a slight obsession too for a little bit!

All I can think about when I see that last picture is "And none for Gretchen Weiners bye."

Hope Roberson said...

Beautiful! The crying picture at the end of your post--too funny! I'm imagining a set of headphones on her, Jason Mraz blaring in her ears :)

Angela Cothran said...

I had no idea Jason Mraz was such a hottie! Where have I been. I'm with Shelly, hopefully that is your worst regret :)

elizabeth seckman said...

Live and learn...(then buy Luvs?...why did marketers ruin such a wonderfully trite saying?)

Trisha said...

I guess we all have regrets like that! But once we've learned those lessons, we make the most of other opportunities :)

I wasn't a band nerd, but I should've been ;) I'm now a musician.

Carrie Butler said...

...Melt into a puddle of Mraz goodness? Hah! Oh, Victoria. I love you. :D

Think of it this way: If Jason had seen you in that dress, he would've ripped it off of you. Then he would have gone to jail. YOU SAVED HIS CAREER! ;)

twentysomethingfictionwriter said...

Thanks!

twentysomethingfictionwriter said...

tehe! I don't think I've aged since 8th grade, lol. I just kind of stopped! thanks :D

twentysomethingfictionwriter said...

thank you! Never conform!

twentysomethingfictionwriter said...

You're right, lol. And yeah he is!!!

twentysomethingfictionwriter said...

Sigh...yes he would have. Lesson learned, lol. Thanks!

twentysomethingfictionwriter said...

Yeah we went all out. It was a fun night :D

twentysomethingfictionwriter said...

I know! Dude is awesome and your comment made me laugh. I must watch the movie now!!!

twentysomethingfictionwriter said...

Haha! I should have photoshopped and put some headphones in there, lol

twentysomethingfictionwriter said...

He is quite delicious in this photo. Not so much now unfortunately...sigh. I know I should be happy this is my worst regret, lol

twentysomethingfictionwriter said...

Haha! It's just cruel.

twentysomethingfictionwriter said...

That's true! Thanks for stopping by :D

twentysomethingfictionwriter said...

*grins* Oh he wouldn't have had to rip it off I would have handled it before he could even think, lol. I guess you're right I did save his career!

Candylynn Fite said...

My daughter is a band nerd. She's super proud of that! Thanks for sharing your photo. :))
