We did the beach thing at my school too @Myvo! It's a really nice way to celebrate Smiley Happy

@delicatedreamer That pamper day sounds amazing! I mean, except for the food poisoning part. It's always awesome treating yourself with a bit of indulgence. Good for you!

Re: [CHAT] Formal date dramas

Going to the formal is not for everyone. What are other ways to celebrate the end of Year 12?

 

One way would be to eat an entire pizza while watching Game of Thrones at home, but I wouldn't suggest that for everyone. I personally enjoyed my formal a lot but it's not the only opportunity to spend time with all your friends ! There is things like schoolies, and you can always do something chill with a smaller group of friends later on like go out for drinks or dinner!

Your idea is PERFECTION. I will probably do that on Thursday night when I have finished exams!

Re: [CHAT] Formal date dramas

Here's our next question!

Do you think that some formal traditions; like dress code, having a date, arriving in a limo, or getting a corsage, are important?

> Nope! I don't think that it's important at all but I believe that so many people stress on it and think it's disastrous if they don't do them! To be honest, I bought my dress a month prior to formal and bought everything else the night before Smiley Tongue Arrived late in my friend's parents' fancy van, to meet my date there. There was some strange aftermath drama because out of my friends, I was the only one with my date. Let's just say that passive-aggressiveness is not fun for formal! Also forgot to get my date a buttonhole - only figured that out a few months ago :/ Yay, me!

Re: [CHAT] Formal date dramas

When I was in high school we didn't have a formal, I didn't get to year 12 but I know my school didn't have  end of year formals. We had mid year formals for year 10 and 12's but that was it so most of my friends just celebrated the end of school at schoolies

Hey @benjamin_ ! Welcome to our chat!

 

But...pizza and Game of Thrones go hand-in-hand like kindred spirits! It would still be an awesome way to celebrate Yr 12!

I think it depends on the context and the formal that you are going to. For mine, the only real formal expectation we had was the was we dressed. Not everyone took dates, and no one came in fancy cars or got corsages - some received flowers. And that was totally okay!

I went to a very small, independent, all girl's school and at our year 12 formal, a lot of the girls took girls who used to go to our school but didn't anymore as their dates. It wasn't a sexuality thing, it was preferring to take a friend over a guy they half knew and it meant they could be included in a celebration at the school they used to attend!

Nah. I'm all for having a badass suit (although I remember I had a bowtie that came loose and I took about 20 photos with it on a 90 degree angle, noone told me lol), but none of the other stuff really mattered to me. I didn't have a date either.
