How Senior Prom Was Like At The Imperia

I would not say that senior prom is one of my best memories in high school. It was mostly a once-in-a-lifetime experience to try out.


I attended senior prom. The senior prom took place at the Imperia, which is located in Somerset, NJ. The Imperia is a banquet hall. It is a good place for weddings. My high school used this banquet hall for the senior prom. It has a ballroom. The ballroom has a dance floor. There are tables and chairs. Outside of the ballroom is a stairwell. My classmates, friends, and I were not allowed to go up further. We could only stand on the stairwell to take pictures. Outside of the Imperia is a gazebo. I recalled a lot of people standing near it to take pictures. I was telling one of my friends to hurry up because a lot of classmates were waiting. A few of them smiled when I said that because they saw that I was being considerate.

We danced to a lot of songs that the DJ played on the dancefloor. They played dance music and romantic songs. I did not know all the songs that the DJ played. I was surprised that there were some songs that my classmates and friends knew that I did not expect them to know. It is funny that they were into these simple, nostalgic songs. There came the time when all couples had to come to the dancefloor. Our romantic prom song of that time was “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran. To be honest, it was the best one out of all the other choices.

I would not say that senior prom is one of my best memories in high school. It was mostly a once-in-a-lifetime experience to try out. There might be something there I might miss out on. At least I get to explore a new place and do something with my classmates and friends for one night before we all have to graduate.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
