Prom Persuasive Essay

Amazing Essays
Everybody in high school is obsessed with the idea of prom but its honestly not worth all of the hype. Prom is not only very expensive, its also way over rated, and a huge waste of time. All of the girls are always worried about who 's going to ask them to be their date. All the guys don’t really care for it but they do whatever they can to make the girls happy and keep them happy.

The main issue for girls when it comes to prom is who is going to ask me, or what am I going to wear. They don 't want to wear the same thing as another girl because that would just be so tragic. They think the more money they spend the better their experience, but that is so far from the truth its not even funny. Why would it matter how much money you spend? The best thing to do is to not even worry about prom because it is so expensive and for what for you to go and dance and hang out with friends? You can easily do that for free. All you have to do is have music and have all your friends bring food and then you have a dance party at your house. There 's no reason to have all the stress that comes with the hair and the make up and especially the dress. Everyone says that after high school if you don’t go to prom you will regret it majorly, but honestly that isn 't the only huge memory you have so you wont really think about it that much.

    For many, spending a ton of money on one night of high school is not worth all the fuss. You remember the people you are with and the dancing and just being together. You won’t care about the six hundred dollar dress that was uncomfortable and that you only wore once. Money spent on outfit apparel and all the accessories is ridiculous. “I actually ended up hating how my hair looked.…

    One of the most anticipated events that seniors in high school look forward to is the senior prom. Truthfully, I never had much interest and had no plans on going to prom mostly due to the fact that I was really bashful and unconfident. Even still, my friends would constantly ask whether or not I was going to attend prom. I would tell them “I don’t know” every time, but since it was finally my senior year, my friends filled me with guilt, saying that I would regret not going to our final high school dance. After constantly thinking and being jealous of all the prom proposals that were happening, I decided I would go to prom with only month remaining.…

    Then, upon returning home from the audition , you let your dance teacher (a person you should be able to trust) know what happened and she decides to tell you that you should not try so hard and that you are not going to make a living out of anything. The reason I ended up picking college was almost on a whim, knowing that I couldn not continue on the path I was on, which was toward the endless sea of unemployment. No formal training to be able to teach, not good enough to be a professional,…

    She internalizes that because she is poor and cannot afford a new dress, she is unworthy and underserving of going to the dance. This is because she internalizes that being a woman is dressing to impress and not embarrass. Another reason why Sally has self-hatred is because she does not like working and views it as unfeminine. Not only does Sally hate being a working woman but she is embarrassed by it because like her women "learned that truly feminine women do not want careers, higher education, political rights-the independence and the opportunities that the old-fashioned feminists fought for" (Friedan, 16). Sally thinks being a working woman is embarrassing and unfeminine because she internalized that working is unfeminine and by being a working woman she is not truly feminine.…

    We texted back and forth, arguing about which group we could go in, where pictures would be taken, and the whole nine yards. This situation frustrated me so much that I had to turn off my phone for a while and panic. I told myself to go with whatever group he wanted, but I did not have the guts to be in a group with classmates I did not know, so I decided not to go at all. Maybe it was not just the poor planning. I really did have a lot of anxiety about going to my first school dance.…

    Lucille had a desire to do something special with her life, and had a longing to be a star. When she was 15 years old, she convinced her mother to let her attend a prestigious New York City drama school, but despite her strong passion and hunger for the stage, she was shy and much too nervous to draw attention and did not fit in at the drama school. Her professors did not like her and would often make fun of her looks, since she was very tall, awkward and leggy, and they often made fun of her Midwestern accent (Higham, 1986). Lucille was very different from the other girls in the drama school. The star pupil was the future starlet, Bette Davis, who Lucille often felt inferior.…
