As the second semester of my freshman year comes to a close, spring formal pops up out of nowhere. Everyone in greek life can confirm that formal is one last big hoorah until we all return back to school in the fall. Every girl in a sorority can also confirm that formal is stressful as shit.
The Date Struggle
I'm sure boys don't really care about formal that much, they just ask the first person that pops into their head. Imagine if it was that easy, ha. Formal really just sneaks up on us out of nowhere. We're all just messing around until we have to figure out who the hell we are going to take to this. It really shouldn't be a big deal, but deep down inside of every girl, it is a slightly big deal. All of a sudden, you forget every boy you have ever talked to and can't seem to figure out who to take. Maybe that kid in my COM class? Nah. Maybe that guy who likes every single Instagram I've ever posted would want to go? Nah. This is impossible.
The Dress Struggle
Your group chats are probably popping with stressful questions on who to take and what dress/romper they should buy. Then there's the stress of buying a dress and god forbid it does not come in on time-or even worse: it might not fit. Might as well go naked and dateless to formal!
Going dateless really isn't bad at all. You probably decided with some other girls that you'll all look super hot and go solo. I applaud you people. You are honestly the best type of people around and I want to be more like you. Unfortunately, me and my friends are not like that and we all just want some arm-candy for a solid picture. It's the sad truth.
Formal is coming up too soon, but don't stress. We all usually end up figuring it out at least five hours before we have to leave. What a time to be alive.
