I bet there are several males from your graduating class who are going to be very disappointed the pretty, petite, prom queen, with a tendency to be dingie is a no show. If your facepage let's them know, perhaps they will pitch in for a roundtrip ticket for you, but not honey bear (sic).
It is my belief that you are in phase two of your life. You have recently passed from phase one, which is "life is great" from childhood through school and nothing can go wrong. Phase two is the time where we get more serious about our life, marriage, kids, along with unwanted comittments and responsibilities. Phase three is moving on to the time where grandkids start taking over your life and your buns probably won't fit in two size six dresses. You will actually look more forward to staying at home for a quiet evening than the best ever party time. We all know what phase four is all about if we last that long.
