Too much hype, too much money

by Eric Abundis

Is prom worth the time, the money, the hype? I don’t think so.

Prom was never a priority or even a thought: it was always a matter of money. I’d rather spend it on clothes I need or school supplies.

I figure prom costs far more than the $60 ticket. A limo. $300. A tux or white suit. Somewhere between $100 and $200. Even dress shoes cost a lot.

Someone actually asked me to prom.

I’m a junior, so maybe I’ll save money and go next year.
