Start of Grade 11 and Random Crap About a Prom (Blog Post)

Tomorrow is the day I start the Grade 11 year.   Theres definately going to be a lot of pressure on me as it is the most important year of my time at high school.  This school year is when I have to study my ass off so I can have good grades when I apply to Universities.  God, Im both worried and excited at the same time.  On one hand, I really dont want to start Grade 11 and on the other I cant wait to experience everything.  Its absolutely driving me nuts.  Im also a very indecisive person so I hope that I will be able to make rational decisions this year when I decide which direction in my career Im going.  At this very moment I want to go into medicine but just a few months ago I aspired to become a school teacher.  I really hope that I wont regret my decision in a couple years but who really knows if I will.  For anyone else that is going to or already has started school I wish you all good luck and a clear head.  
 
Oh I also wanted to ask a questions.  So a really good friend whos a girl (you can stop reading here if you want) asked me to go with her to this thing at my school thats sort of like a prom thats in may.  I guess it is a prom but I had no clue we were going to have one until she brought it up.  Shes a really good friend and probably my best friend whos a girl but I just dont want to go with her.  Shes really great but I honestly think I can do better and I dont want to strap myself down to a commitment.  I dont want to be in a position where I have to choose between her or another girl even though she asked me first.  Yeah I know I just sound like a total dick but Im just saying whats on my mind...  I told her Im probably not going but shes insisting that I should.  Well no coming to think of it, she didnt really ask me, she said I was going with her and that probably pushed me away from the possibility of going with her even more.  
 
Anyways, Ive been rambling on for too long.  Again I wish you guys good luck and happy travels whatever that means.  Ill also say a short fairwell to get myself organized.  I have goals for myself that are all over the place and I think I need to take the time to actually sort them out.  I need to stop using the internet and playing Fallout 3 for a short while.  Ill also stop thinking about what games Im going to buy this fall...  Anyways, Ill see you guys and gals at the Big Live Live Show Live this Saturday! 
 
PS, I might do this more often so I might need to think of a title.  Any suggestions for future titles?

Wait why are you applying to universities if you don't know what you want to do? What country are you in? In the USA most colleges are built with specific fields in mind.

How many dances does your school have? Mine had multiple dances throughout the year, and I don't think that's an odd thing. Take your friend to a dance, you'll have fun. You can take other girls to other dances. I never attended a school dance with a girl I wanted to have a relationship with. Take a friend, get jiggy with it (by that I mean dancing), and have fun. That's what it's all about.

Oh crap didnt realize it would say Blog Post again....  Last time I wrote one I wrote Blog Post and it was perfectly fine.  That was probably a one time thing.  Lesson learned.  
 
 @Doctorchimp: I havent applied to any yet and my school has a mandatory planning course so Ill learn more about it their.  Im in Canada so Ill be applying to American Universities as well as local ones.  
@BoG: I go to an all guys school and an incident came up one year.  We used to have dances with an all girls school but now theyre banned.  This happened years before I first came to my high school so I havent been to many dances and such.  I think its more like a prom and I find it odd shes asking me now when its in May

@the_OFFICIAL_jAPanese_teaBAG: Agh, junior year. Do your shit man! About the girl thing, you sound like a dick. But she does seem a little.... how can I say this....... DEMANDING. Tell her you don't want to go but if you do want to go, then you have no choice but to take her. Or just find her a different date. Someone probably likes her. Maybe pay someone to take her? I don't know. Then find a girl and dance it out and have sex afterwards! I'm jk. But yeah, I would just say I'm not going and not go. She can't force you to go. Also, you saying a 'really good' friend makes me suspicious. Have you tapped that? Because if you did, no wonder she wants you to go to that dance. She may like you. A LOT. 
 
Well, have fun in high school though. I'm getting my diploma sometime this week and hopefully that's today. So now I'm on a break until January. That's when I'll start college, if any college accepts my dumbass that is.

That's because she needs to get you before any other ladies attack your luscious self with dates for prom or whatever that dance is.

There are many schools that dont even require you to announce your major until after you've been accepted.

@the_OFFICIAL_jAPanese_teaBAG: Alright, I'm not sure what sort of advise those canadians are giving you about American colleges, but it's very wise to make sure what you are doing.

The last thing you want is to come down here and pay an arm and a leg for an education that has nothing to do with what you actually want to work as.

It's happened to plenty of my friends where they went straight out of high school and they wasted a year and thousands of dollars to find out they didn't have their heart in Microbiology, Electrical engineering, computer sciences, etc. etc.

And they have to pack up and find a completely different school for what they want.

I don't think you understand what I meant.

Oh... well, I guess I don't fully understand the situation, but if that's the case, I would accept her invitation. I'm sure it's a little tough to meet girls at an all boys school.

@awesomeusername: Yeah I dont know why but my friends and her friends think we're getting it on but we're just friends.  Oh god I just hope she doesnt like me...  That would be horrible.  Like I just dont want to go with her because I dont want people to think somethings going on between us and Im not interested in her like that.  Hahaha I wouldnt pay someone to take her...  I know youre not kidding awesomeusername!  Good luck man!  I really hope someone accepts you too
Edited by awesomeusername
@the_OFFICIAL_jAPanese_teaBAG: Tell your friends and her friends nothings going on. If they don't believe you, then tell them to suck a beef jerky! Kids these days man. Always assuming!!! Is she ugly by any chance? You make it seem like she doesn't look.... good(?). Now onto serious advice! 
 
Just go with her and have fun. Teenage years are the easiest years of your life and you won't be able to do much when you get older. Have fun while you can dude or you'll regret it. Personally, I never really went to school dances and stuff but I don't care because I'm just not a partying type of guy. Unless there's liquor! But besides that, go with her!  
 
You know what, forget my advice. Don't go! My advice will land up getting you slapped and losing a friend. Haha, if that was me, I wouldn't care though. So just go and have fun or stay home that night playing Mass Effect 3 or Bioshock Infinite. But you'll probably regret it. I know you will. Just pray that someone asks that girl to go with them this year so you can be free and take another girl. I'll pray for you! Maybe.  
 
Also, I didn't apply for universities. I applied to city schools but I don't even want to start January because I have no idea what I want to study. Fuck school. If you come to college in America, come to New York man! Wait, forget it. You'll hate it here.  
 
Damn I'm terrible at giving advice... 
 
Edit: Fuck it! I want to see a blog post the next day of that dance saying you went because I'm losing hours of sleep talking here! I'm going to be so tired in the morning. FOCK.

@Doctorchimp: Oh yeah I heard about those expensive tuition prices.  Im going to apply for scholarships but I dont know how well thats going to go.  I just need to work hard this year.  Ill make sure to research carefully before I decide which one I want to go to. 
 
@BoG: Its not like I went to an all guys school all my life so it wont be too bad.  I know girls from other schools so Im fine...  
 
@awesomeusername: I always do tell them nothings going on but its alright, Ill let them have their fun...  She looks alright.  Its not like shes fat but shes not a model or anything.  I think another reason why I dont want to go is because my ex is going to be there probably with another guy.  My ex is my friends best friend and man shes beautiful.  I got over her recently (she broke up with me over a year ago) and I dont want to feel jealous or for those feelings to come back.  She was my first love so its been hard.  I know Im racking up reasons but whatever...  Hahaha Im very confused right now...  I could always just go out with friends at night and have a good time by doing things.  Oh wow...  It just hit me.  Thats a great idea. 
 
 Oh you have like a few months to decide what to do.  Why dont you take a few days off and just think about this stuff?  I usually unplug all electronic devices that are going to bother me and that helps me sort things out.  Ive actually never been to New York before.  Youre very indecisive when it comes to giving out advice hahaha

Good luck, mate! Medicine and education are both great fields that need great minds.

How did I not post here already? Also, you should go, since the prom will end up being this:
 
  

  
 
You know, aside from jumping into a parade and getting killed and everything. Hopefully.

I remember my first junior prom.

Posted by the_OFFICIAL_jAPanese_teaBAG
@RenegadeSaint: yeah I need to study quite a bit this year. 
  
@MooseyMcMan: Shes just a friend so I think she'll understand
 
@Video_Game_King: If the prom was that wonderfully choreographed, I would go
 
@UncleClassy: To be honest, proms kinda sound corny.  Ive never been to one so I dont think I would know...
Posted by iam3green

well have a good school year. i never went to any proms in my high school year.
