PROM KING

The sad thing about graduating from high school in Europe is that you don't have a prom.
When I was a teenager all my friends and I were obsessed with American high school movies. We saw them all (means girls, bring it on, never been kissed, she's all that, clueless, heathers,...)  and every time we left the cinema we were most upset about the fact that you, Americans, had a prom.
I mean, how amazing wouldn't it be to be voted prom king of your school?
I guess Ceesie will never know how it feels...

  6. There's also a prom in Poland ;)
    It is called 'studniówka' because we've got it about 100 days before graduation.. we don't have king and queen, but we dance traditional dance (you can find it on youtube- polonez ) and we're having fun all night long :D
